I am inspired!!!

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

I am sitting here watching the biggest loser and getting really emotional. I am looking at the older guy who can barely walk, cross the finish line of a 26.2 mile marathon, and it hits me I can do this. I am currently tipping the scales at 253lbs, I am truly at my heaviest point. I am constantly complaining about how I look and feel; when I walk my legs and back burn. I have no excuse to be this size, I don't have any kids , I am not sick; I am no longer in denial I love food!!! I realized tonight after the show, that if these people topping the scales at close to 400lbs can let go of their fear and push their selves so can I!!!

I am ready to upgrade me!!!

    Ron made me cry so hard!!!! He touched my heart last night! He finished that marthon with one leg and one arm (as Bob put it).
The episode had me up doing squats and lunges and side bends every commercial break!!!

Admitting what the real problem is, is a great new start for you! I like Jillian's approach, when she gets to the emotional and pshychological attachment to food. I will be watching for you on the team and cheering you on!!! Good luck and stay focused!!!!! emoticon

    I watched Biggest Loser last night as well..And they all have come a long way!.. Tara started at 294 Pounds!!! And look at how she looks now!...Just Amazing!..Def very motivating and inspiring! We all can get those kinds of results as long as we're patient, we keep going and don't give up on ourselves!

    Good for you! You can do this. Admitting it to yourself is the first step.
You will do great.
