I don't qualify!!

Thursday, August 16, 2012

So hubby and I are watching Wipeout while eating dinner (a guilty pleasure). I decided to check if the show was casting just to see what the requirements are. I'm not crazy enough for that show, but I saw a link to apply for the Extreme Weight Loss Show. Turns out it's no longer active, but I got to see the requirements.

To qualify, you have to need to lose 50% of your body weight or more. So I did a little mental math. 50% of my body weight is 115 pounds. My goal weight is between 130 & 140 pounds. So guess what? I'm too small to go on that show!

Ha!! I still have a long way to go, but it's so satisfying to know that I'm no longer big enough to be of interest to the reality-show execs.

    I Love Wipeout too. Something about watching marginally athletic folk getting the snot beat out of them on a booby-trapped obstacle course just cracks me up.

CONGRATS !! for not being qualified for "Biggest Loser" or any of those shows. They're not real anyway. The average guy or gal can't just put life on hold to work out 6 hours a day, nor can we afford constant medical and/or dietary supervision, much less a staff of personal trainers.

Guess what ?? I'm not qualified either.

    I love looking at that kind of stuff, it's kinda weird- you think oh it would be so much easier if I had a trainer who could help me but really the difference isn't the trainer, it's you. Look how much you've done Jen. Look at all of the cool things you've done this year, and tonight you're gonna go play some kick ball- Amazing what we can do, when we put our minds to it.
