Nothing worth having is easy!!

I've always admired the people on the Biggest Loser. Watching them go from morbidly obese to fit, is very inspiring.
Last season I especially identified with a contestant by the name of Sunshine Hampton.

Her shy demeanor, and her little girl spirit at the beginning of the season totally transformed into a powerhouse later on.

I was awakened when I saw her, and found myself rooting for her every episode. I also was vicariously rooting for myself through her success.

As I posted a few posts back, I bought P90X and Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and Shred it with Weights dvd's from Amazon

I also got Bob Harper's Inside Out Method dvd's.

Needless to say, I got the two baddest fitness trainers at my disposal, and they're in my home everyday.
I've done Jillian's 30 Day Shred level 1 but, boy, is it hard. SERIOUSLY!!!! I've only gotten through maybe 10 minuties of it. It's no joke. Being as sedentary as I am, it's expected for me to have difficulty with someone as tough as Jillian, BUT, I'm committed.

Bob on the other hand, I might have to go through a few months with Jillian to handle Bob. His Cardio and Strength training dvd's got me huffing and puffing just by watching it. I was feeling their pain and I think I may have even broke out into a sweat alittle. Lol just joking.
But man after watching it really makes you wanna get off your butt and kick some ass right along with them.

Of course losing weight is difficult. It's the most difficult thing to do. And the bigger you are the harder it is to lose the weight. Last night I went to the drug store to buy a few things and bought an analog scale that was on sale. I got home and decised to finally weight myself. (I haven't weighed myself in 6 months). The finally number both startled and woke me up. I am 260lbs.

The last time I weighed myself was back in early august, I had just joined the gym. The trainer annoused my weight as 250. How did I gain 10 lbs in 6 months. Imagine if I didn't buy that scale or the dvd's. Imagine if I assumed that my weight was going to stay at 250 and that I had all the time in the world to lose the weight. Image if I continued to balloon the way I am, and remained in denial???? I'm 40 lbs away from 300lbs. The mere thought of it brings me to tears. I can't be 300 lbs. I JUST CAN'T!!!!!

To be continued.....

  1. Don't feel bad - I haven't made it past level 1 on Jillian's dvd either - she doesn't play. But keep you're head up, we're in this together and this weight will not over power us! You won't make it to 300 lbs - you're gonna eat right, work out and everything will be fine
