13 days to 35! And..Biggest Loser Auditions

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I thought I would be able to drop about 10 pounds before my birthday....I am about 2 pounds down. I turn 35 in 13 days and that means that I will have been trying to lose weight for 26 years now! Ugh! I really hate that it has been this long and I am still trying to work my way through this.

So, I tried out for Biggest Loser last year and didn't get a call back. I had people staring me down and telling me I wasn't fat enough for the show. Of course, it wasn't the show people, but other people in line.

I am considering trying out again this Saturday since they are holding auditions about an hour from my house. I was also thinking of making a video because the auditions are only about 20 seconds long and I might have a better shot with a video than the audition...I am not sure. Maybe both???

In a way, I am a little uncomfortable about weighing in on a huge scale in front of the nation on TV, but at the same time, I am much more uncomfortable in the body I am in right now. What makes me nuts is I know what to do, but I am not doing it. I can exercise and I enjoy it, but I am not consistent. I eat healthy most of the day, but at night I have my biggest struggles. I even opted to not get cable after I moved so I wouldn't eat in front of the TV...which I have to say has worked. But I am watching a few shows online. However, my TV time has decreased from about 3-4 hours a day to about an hour a day, 3 days a week.

I just really don't want to begin my second half of life in an overweight, unhealthy body.

    I vote you make a video. To give you chance to tell your story. and if they don't pick you this time. Maybe they'll decide to do a different type of season someday like they use to, when they did Army vs Navy and different families.

I'm on Day 7 of a Whole30. 30 days of eating only whole foods, to reset your metabolism. I'm also reading their book It Starts with Food, which is helping me understand why losing weight has been so hard and what all the so called "heathy" processed foods and grains have been doing to our bodies. I'm not allowed to weigh in until the end of the 30 days, but I'll let you know how it goes. So far it feels too easy. Hopefully that's a good thing and I'm not doing something wrong.

    I would love to try out for the Biggest Loser, but I don't think I could weigh in on that scale in front of everyone and on TV either, and I would probably cry everytime Jillian said something to me! Good luck!
