Disclosure: I've never watched "The Biggest Loser". I know of it due to it's (and by association, her) popularity and the show and / or contestants showing up in mainstream media from time to time; most recently, the criticism of a victor's extreme weight loss. I didn't really consider that I'd become a member of the BL bandwagon, I was just curious as to what her program would offer me for free and if that were anything different from what I could get elsewhere.
The basic message was take in less, burn more: calories.
Intellectually, I know this. Emotionally, I get it. As most of us know, it is much easier said than done.
I've been up and down this road these last few years. Most recently, I admit, more down and up
However, been there, done that, must do it again. Re-booting the campaign. I must. I not only huff and puff about the way I look, but huff and puff about the way I feel. I don't like the huffing and puffing.
So, with no thanks or offense to Jillian and her crew's program, I will get back to what has worked in the past, tweaking to allow for my advanced age and other . . . advancements. Thankfully, time has come to get outside, get Melody out from under the stairs and on the road. Adjustment to my diet began in earnest last week with further adjustments on tap for this week and beyond.
The loss won't be epic. It won't be quick. It certainly won't be easy. But, I will have measurable success.My emotional and physical health depends on some measure of success.
Goal set. Clock begun. Wheels turning.And a weigh we go.
