So, on a Tuesday...

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I love that the Biggest Loser is back on. LOVE it. I think watching this show over the years has helped to shape the person I'm becoming. I also think that Bob's words tonight will reverberate in my head whenever I feel tempted. Tempted to quit. Tempted to give up. Tempted to eat what I shouldn't. Bob Harper looked at Mike and said that he wanted him to remember how much his worked out sucked, and how hard it was. The man was clearly in lots of pain, discomfort and completely worn out. I mean this was plainly and irrevocably clear. Then Bob went on to say, that one day it wouldn't be so hard.

Of course that's paraphrasing, and there's more to it, but I cannot remember it word for word. I also know that this is the same thing we all deal with, we all say we realize, we all know. Tonight, though, it hit me waaay deep. Like a sucker punch to the part of my soul that was still being lazy. I feel more in complete power of my own well being than I ever have before. It's amazing how someone's words to someone else can impact you so greatly.

So today, on a tuesday;
I feel empowered.
I feel like I'm not a victim OF food anymore.
I feel like I have gained a firmer foot hold on this path that I'm walking.
I feel like I can do this.

I also lost 1.3 pounds when I weighed myself yesterday. Cheers!

    That's amazing! And good for you for losing 1.3 lbs too! I have missed every show of biggest loser so I'll have to try to find it online to catch up. But Biggest loser used to always inspire me too into pushing harder and that might be what I need right now. Good luck on your journey! emoticon
