Weekly Weigh In

I weighed in this morning at 278 pounds.  That's.6 less than last week.  I'll take it.  It's another step closer to Onederland.  My goal for next week is to stay off the scale until Next Tuesday.  You have no idea how hard this is for me.  I'll weigh before my shower, after the shower.  I get obsessed and if I am going to talk the talk of not letting a number define you on the scale than I better walk the walk.  Heaven help me because I don't think I can go 48 hours. <pondering> Maybe I should set my goal for 48 hours.

Seriously, in my mind it makes sense because you can't change what the scale reads anyhow, it is what it is.  Your weight fluctuates throughout the day. If you're doing what you need to do, then in the end, it will get done. In it's own time.  It's so easy to get hung up on the number being the ultimate ruler in how successful you were in the past week or yesterday.  It reminds me of The Biggest Loser and how they rely on a number.  Jillian was right when she said that Nathan didn't deserve to go home.  The rules caused him to go home but I saw a spark in him last night prior to weigh-in where he got his "juice"- I can't wait to see where his journey took him after he went home in the end.  I'm a Nathan Fan. I've said it. I'm committed.  

This is my first season watching with Jillian because up until two seasons ago, this show was off limits in my house.  I didn't watch it because I didnt' want to face reality.  I didn't want to be reminded of anything to do with my weight and sure as hell didn't want to sit and watch someone "getting it" and "doing it" while I sat on my couch and played the victim.

I wish I could box her up and take her home with me.  I at first didn't love her tough love approach but have to say, sometimes that's what it takes.  I find that every time, I think she is too harsh, I find I'm having victim thinking.        I have to laugh at some of the tweets about Jillian.  My favorite was "If Jillian talked to me that way, I'd *&)(#@#$ beat her **&!" Really, would you now? I'd like to watch you try!

I've got some busy work to do at my desk this afternoon, so I'm going to tune into some of her You Tube videos.  Daily Dose with Jillian Michaels.  - How to be the Best you Can.


  1. Great job on the loss!! I just wrote an entire thing about TBL on Terri's blog. Haha. This is the very first time I'm watching this show. I decided to watch because of the new approach with tackling childhood obesity. I think it's an incredibly important message.

  2. Congrats on the loss, that is great! I have mixed feeling about TBL. I like the kinder gentler Jillian, the yelling one is annoying lol.
