Last night I watched ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition". I stayed up past my bedtime to watch it (it's airs at 10pm Eastern time) because the participant weighed 369 lbs. That's not far from where I am starting and I wanted to see the transformation.
I really like the trainer and I'm hoping that in addition to keeping me motivated, this show and watching him, will remind me how I want to be a Children's Fitness Specialist. I know that I would have so much to give to the children because of what I've experienced in my adulthood. Even though I was not overweight as a child, I can relate because I do have a child. I have seen her talk to a child who was only 3 years old and was overweight for his age, when others would not. When Emma's preschool teacher told me this, I was so proud of her. Kids can be so mean. I pray that my child will continue to do the right thing. I worry about this especially with my own weight issues. I don't want to be an embarrassment to her. Again, kids can be hurtful and so can adults. Sorry to have gotten a little off topic.
As I was saying, I think this show will really be an inspiration to others. I don't want to reveal anything for those who have not yet watched. But if you did watch it, what did you think?
Here's a link where you can watch the show if you so desire:
