I just watched the second episode of “Heavy” on A&E. If you’re not watching this show, you should be! I can relate to so much about why the participants let their weight spiral out of control, and their new-found commitment to changing things around. It’s a very inspirational show.
However, I did think it was noteworthy that in the first month – where the subjects live in an inpatient weight loss treatment facility with no phones or internet, no jobs or family responsibilities, all meals provided, and multiple intense daily workouts – Jessica (who started off at 289lbs) lost 16lbs.
I somehow achieved more than that in a month at home with only 3 weekly workouts, a job and 2 young kids around, not to mention record snowfall (snow days = stress= a temptation to comfort-eat). Today marks exactly a month since I recommitted to my weight loss journey on January 3rd, and I am down 17 lbs. I am freaking PROUD of myself.
