Biggest Loser - Week two
One of the great advantages of satellite TV (which we have had for about a month) is that you can record programs on your DVR. When we switched to digital, we lost the ability to set our VCR to record. Therefore, last season on Biggest Loser, I could only watch the last half of each show. (I have meetings on Tuesday nights.) My favorite part of the show is the weigh-ins, but when you don't see the first half, you don't get to see into the minds of the contestants. Last night's show was very insightful. What seems like a "duh" to people who don't have food issues, is a very real problem for people like me. It's all about choices and accepting reality. The reality for me is that I will never be "normal" around food. I will always have to constantly weigh my choices about what goes in my mouth. But you know what? Everyone has something in his life that needs the same kind of attention. Last night at RCIA we were talking about that very thing. For some people it's food. For others it's alcohol, or working too much, or spending too much or whatever. For most people there is something going on that gets more attention than it should in our lives. It's time for me to grow up realize that ignoring it or whining about it or denying it doesn't work. I'm ready to put food in its place.
