Here's My Beef

I must admit it, I am a die hard fan of the show "The Biggest Loser."  Guilty pleasures and all that.  But I have a big issue...

Most of the women on that show's goal weight is what I weigh now.  So why do their bodies look so much better than mine? 

Granted, those people become athletes, and have much more muscle than I do, and since muscle weighs more than fat, we don't have the same fat content.

But still, it can be so discouraging at times!  I can rationalize it all I want, and I can tell myself "I weigh LESS than that, so I must look that good", but the mirror just laughs at me.  I can't run, I can't hide, I look the way I do.

My son said to me when I was watching the show one time "Mom, why don't you go on that show?"  And I replied "I don't think I weigh enough."  And he looked at me and said "EXACTLY!"

Gotta love your kids!

LOVE Biggest Loser. I let my older kids (ages 7, 8, and 9) watch with me. My 7 year old always tells me that I SHOULD go on the older two try to explain to her that now that I am under 200 I don't weigh enough! She still doesn't understand though. I guess that's what I get for letting them watch it with me!! :-)
