I want to be the biggest loser. I saw that show for the first time tonight. Yes, I know, I know this is season eight, but I have worked nights for the last ten to fifteen years, so I am still adjusting to being home in prime time and I do not record a lot of shows because it will keep me glued to the set instead of getting some sort of cardio exercise in.
This show really shows the raw emotions of the contestants. There is more to losing weight than the actual weight loss itself. It helps each individual peel back the layers of why the weight is surrounding them. That is something I am looking at for myself. I have been overweight since I got out to the military. I have been over 200lbs since I was 31 years old, spent most of the adult life size 22+.
Time for a change. Time to see numbers go down the scale. Time to be that size seven I was in high school again. I took it all for granted. Now my health is my wealth. Life is for living and as I said yesterday, get busy living or get busy dying.
I am creating my own dream team , just like reality TV star Ruby. I do not have a camera crew following me around, but I have my own video camera and I like to journal electronically and in my journal. I decided to dream big, set a goal, write my vision and make in plain. I do not want to live my life through someone else, just watching the grass grow. I want to use all the gifts and talents God has blessed me with and that is what I am going to do.
