Well, not mine but the TV program.
This morning, in an effort to avoid watching Loony Tunes while I eat breakfast I stumbled on a show on Style called My Big Fat Weight Loss Story. I admit it, I love reality TV. I spent most of Monday watching reruns of Jersey Shore. This mornings episode of MBFWLS is about Adrienne, a 16-yo, 5'6", 224 pound girl. Only a couple of minutes into the show Adrienne says that she feels "ashamed of myself because something so simple for most people, is so hard for me." This made me so sad. I wish I could grab this kid and say to her, "It's not simple for most people. Even thin people have to work at it."
Her trainer takes away the peanut butter?!!! What the heck?! Peanut butter, if you get the natrual type without added oil and salt isn't bad for you. Sure it's calorie dense but it's a good source of healthy fat and protein! You need some of that in your diet to be healthy.
I haven't even watched the entire show and I can tell that I"m going to have to change the channel.
Anyway, the point of this post is to say to anyone out there that losing weight isn't easy...for anyone. Even maintaining your weight loss isn't easy. We all have to work at and occasionally do things we don't want to do. But the more you live a healthy lifestyle, the easier it gets.
