i have found myself in a battle of ideology with several posters concerning the story about biggest loser, it seems a former contestant has come out and told some secrets of the show, such as, a week isnt really a week but could be 10 days to 2 weeks...
that some contestants are actually taught how to dehydrate in order to have a big loss for that week...
things i have long suspected on this show
and things i am not at all shocked over, however a few ppl seem to think this contestant is upset or angry or is just tasting sour grapes....
everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but i feel bad for anyone who watches that show and really believes that game isnt manipulated, both or weight loss numbers and for ratings and so the outcome is in favor of the contestant the producers want to see win....
its so fixed
the scale they stand on is fake, they are weighed before and the producers set up who goes in what order for more dramatic effect.
i like watching the show and seeing ppl losing weight, but i dont buy into the whole idea that normal ppl can lose that much weight in that number of weeks and it be healthy.
these ppl dont work out like we do at home, they are in training, they are just like olympic atheletes, being trained....
so its just my opinion, anyone shocked by that girl coming out and telling this must be living in total denial about real ality tv....

today i went to the doctor to get the results of my mri, it is a torn miniscus, a torn tendon, however she said the mri showed it to be slight.
well, it hasnt felt slight i can tell you that.
today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks i left the house without my cane.
and would not have done that, had bill not been with me.
i go to the orthopedic surgeon on monday, to see what wild and crazy, painful procedure he has in store for me.
but i fear tomorrow is going to be an even more fearful and painful day.
it is the day i go back to my doctor that monitors my weight plan.
i last saw him on April 27th, and he called me a player, i thought he was referring to my love life, but he said he meant i knew how to play the weight loss game.
boy was he ever wrong.
i guess i just had a streak of good luck before i went to him, and its been all downhill since.
i havent lost any of the 6 to 8 lbs he recommended for me, and that was for 1 month, due to a death of a dear loved one, i had to reschedule my last appt and so now its been 7 weeks.
i have gained at least 3lbs back of what i had lost.
i havent walked since june 3rd.
and when i say walked, i dont mean, exercised walking, i mean, walked, well, i have hopped on one foot, hobbled, practically crawled or scooted at times...on crutches for the first week and then a cane.
i havent done much of any kind of exercise.
and i havent been counting calories like i should.
depression overtook me with this injury and dealing with grief of my lost loved one.
i am only human and if he doesnt understand this then i guess he isnt.
will let everyone know how it goes.

did anyone of you ever watch the sopranos?? one of my all time favorite shows.
did you ever see the gang refer to their careers in the, uh, organization, as "this thing of ours"???
i am pretty sure that is the term.
i was just thinking how it is, that most of us here feel more comfortable opening ourselves up on sparkpeople, to total strangers, than we would to our moms or sisters or spouses.
i guess, this is just my thoughts, that we can do this partially because most of the people you talk to on here, you arent ever going to meet.
but, in this case, i feel its because we have a kinship.
if i say to someone, i feel gross and fat and hate that i feel like a total failure because i had an extra piece of chicken at dinner, or i just didnt feel like working out today, so now i hate myself.
chances are, many many ppl will read it and go "ahhhh yea, i get it" have been there...
its our "thing".
i have a doctors appt on thursday, the doc i always dread going to.
i dont know why i get so freaked out by going there.
he is pretty laid back, but, he gave me a goal and i havent met it no where even close.
but, i am going to appeal to his understanding of the fact that i have lost 2 relatives and a very dear old friend since i last saw him, funerals and depression and traveling and stress.
also, the knee injury that has kept me off the walking track, the treadmill and the exercise bike for nearly 2 weeks....
i am hoping he will be understanding of the fact that i have barely been able to hobble from one room to the next.
so much has been going on, and i guess i could have tried harder, but i am just dreading it all the way around.

just a few minutes ago i was talking to a friend and telling her how nice it had been today...
how its only 2 weeks until vacation and we dont have any plans, and with my bum knee, i dont really think we will be making any.
and now, as i look out, i see it has gotten very dark.
i suppose the rains will be here soon.
my knee is somewhat better, it will feel better and then it will begin to hurt terribly, it is the worst when i lay down at night.
i really hope the rains come and go fast, as i dread that achy feeling i am sure to get.
i am walking without my crutches now, and the cane i use only for support.
i actually went out today to the dollar store...
but i still cant put any weight on it.
am hoping time will heal it and its not anything requiring surgery.
everyone have a nice weekend, i am sure i will be home taking it very easy and staying off my leg.
