Have any of you been watching “The Biggest Loser” recently? I really love watching it …it is an inspiring show and it’s incredible to watch the transformation that happens to these individuals as they submit their wills, bodies, lives to these trainers and to changing their eating habits.
If you’ve ever watched this show you find that so many of these people have emotional reasons for how they got to be so overweight. Others have a family history of obesity which has just been passed down due to culture and the way food is placed at a focal point in their lives.
Right now they’ve gone 15 weeks on the Biggest Loser Campus and they have had dramatic changes to overall physical well-being…contestants who were once dealing with medical issues are now seeing a complete turn around due to the healthy changes they have made.
I look at them and then I look at myself and realize that there just has to come a point where you evaluate your physical state and say enough is enough. Now I am not in the biggest loser category of needed weight loss but I am overweight and I am tired of this growing discontentment with my physcial appearance.
I know that I need to make the changes for a healthier Liz but the really lazy person inside of me is NOT wanting to do this and I am resisting making the right decision for myself. Here’s the thing I don’t want – to keep gaining weight…so what needs to happen?
I have to make changes in my life, my eating habits and my physcial activity. I just have to do it. I first and foremost want to do it for me…I believe that’s important but I also want to be a healthier person to set a good example to my children.
Hey, please pray for me as I gear up towards making these changes. I am still figuring out what the plan is and when and how to implement it.
My target date to start is May.
If any of you out there want to join this journey with me let me know. I think it takes accountability and encouragement to start and stick it out. I will most likely blog about it and fill you in what I’m doing.
