6/2/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 3. June 2013 05:52

The other day I watched The Biggest Loser for the first time.  I didn’t really like it, but I took away from it a lot of food for thought.  Having never dealt with the issues that come with weighing 300- 500 lb, the contestant’s strife   enlightened me.  They spoke of their fears of not keeping the weight off, and of not having achieved their personal goals fast enough (though this particular young man lost 300 pounds to that point).  The trainer was getting in his face trying to make him see that he had done an amazing accomplishment,  and that  he needed to recognize that fact to move forward and continue making progress.  It made me sad that this man couldn’t see his positive health wins.  How loosing the weight would help him physically to live longer and with a better quality of life.  I feel in the end he did get it, but it weighted on my heart.  Tomorrow we will discuss some facts about how to create weight loss (other than starving yourself) and some of the issues one faces along that journey.  Come back tomorrow and let’s explore these issues together.
