I'm not a TV watcher, so I don't know the program you're talking about... but there are some incredible accounts of immense weight loss. I'm so inspired and impressed by their success!
You don't have to go to TV to see such amazing results, though. Have any of you seen the also awesome results from our own Beth Donovan (~INDYGIRL) ? She's an inspiration too. She posts many motivational blogs and secrets to how she accomplished her goal. With before-and-after pictures as well.
I've lost a lot of weight, but these people astound me. If they can do it, I know I can make it too. Slower (because I'm also disabled; my loss has been diet ALONE, I can't exercise at all), but progressing. And I'm going where I plan to be, at whatever pace I am able to achieve.
As can we all! We're going there! These other folks and their success proves it.
