The Biggest Loser, who?
Wednesday, December 02, 2009
Last night my beloved & I watched the Biggest Loser. I watch it every week. I find it helps the ole motivation going & ok - it's nice to visually see someone struggle & overcome their weight issues. It's a story I've been living for the past 11 months.
So they were down to the final four last night. Two men & two women. And they were sharing all of these very emotional stories about the contestants and then they showed each one with how much weight they've lost ... it was then that this bright light went off in my head....
Holy F*Bomb Batman! - I've lost more weight in the past 11 months by myself, with no trainer and no gym membership, then the two women who were finalist. Now - I know these poor saps have been working their tails off and have dropped 60+ pounds in only 11 weeks. I respect that. And they ran a marathon - which is something I've never considered ... but wow. I've lost more weight than either of the final female contestants did. Me. On my own. Me. Just me with a little website called Sparkpeople, a video game called the Wii, and a calorie counting heart rate monitor called an ePulse. Wow. Who knew? Is there no end to the wonders of modern technology?
Next month will be one year with Sparkpeople. I'm hoping to have lost a cool 100 lbs by then. And with the sense of pride I have in myself right now --- I just might do it. :)
