The Biggest Loser

Did you watch the season premiere of The Biggest Loser last night? It appears that this season will be a highly emotional one, with what Jillian remarked as 'heavy baggage' within many of the contestants.

So, who do you think will be the fan favorite? Will it be Abby as she fights to overcome her horrendous family tragedy? Or will it be Shay, the underdog, the heaviest contestant ever? Or what about Tracey, who didn't even make it to the starting weigh-in after her medical disaster on day one?

Yes, this is going to be an emotional season. I'm not one to tear up over television shows or movies but I came close last night while the whole cast was bawling during the introductions!

I've decided to use the show this year as a motivator to make some changes in my own life. I recently decided that I need to get moving. I'm not getting any younger, you know. I'm at an age where I need to make changes or, like many of the Biggest Loser contestants, I may not get a second chance. Pretty scary.....

I started walking this week. I know. Pretty wimpy. *sigh* I decided I should start somewhere since I haven't worked out in months. I just got back from my morning walk. (1.5 miles-go, me...) Can you believe there is a very nice walking track not even half a mile from my home and I fail to use it? Not anymore, I'm happy to say! This walking should also help me get back to normal after messing up my thyroid levels. (Then I can add to the workout, hopefully.)

It would really be motivating to see the numbers fall each week like they do on the show. You have to really push yourself to see those losses and, well, I'm just not that good about pushing through the burn. I would be crying and puking, ya'll. Just like they were doing on the show last night. Or worse.

But hey... At least I'm not snacking through the show like last season.

Well, I did last night-some popcorn.

But. that. is. it.

Never again!
