Biggest Loser?

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I watched the Biggest Loser last night and was amazed at the differences in ability and weight loss in the different age groupings. I get it, and I certainly feel the effects of ageing but it was still an eye opener for me. I've lost and gained weight so many times during my life and it just keeps getting harder! I couldn't help but feel Wowed by the amount of weight some were able to lose in only 1 week. I feel like I've worked pretty hard to lose my 20 pounds but it's taken me all summer!

    I watched it as well and a lil part of me was like dang, it took me almost 2 months jus to lose 10lbs and their losing 15-20lbs in a week...What am I doing wrong? I can't compare my efforts to theirs because I know that it's in a controlled environment. If I could leave my kids and job for months and just work on me I'd lose like that too but I can't all I can do is work at my pace and do as much as I can, and so can YOU! :)

    Be proud of your 20 pound weight loss and remember the weight loss on BL isn't exactly realistic. Also remember that there has been a few BL participants that have gone home only to regain the weight.

    I just finished watching it and noticed the same thing. But you know they are in the gym all day for hours on end and eating a very very strict diet to lose that amount of weight. Be very proud of the 20lbs you lost, believe me I understand it took me over 2 months just to lose 10lbs. You are doing a great job and take pride in it!!

    I too, watched Biggest Loser last night and felt some of the same feelings you described! I really enjoy this show, but we have to keep our perspective! The members of BL are attending an all inclusive camp, one that works for them, but is not the same as the day to day existence you and I experience! You should be very, very proud of your twenty pound weight loss...

    Just keep on keeping on.

    Have a terrific week!
