I know there’s a fair bit of anti-Biggest Loser sentiment on Weight Watchers. I agree and disagree with it. I agree in that BL does make some think/expect that big losses are the norm, but I disagree in that if it teaches people to eat well and responsibly, that’s a good thing. I only started watching this season, but I really got a lot out of it. It opened my eyes, but I know better than to think I’m going to lose double digits in one week. I didn’t even do that in week 1.

A real eye-opener.
I’ve been reading a number of books on food and nutrition during my weight loss journey and this one struck me because it wasn’t proscribing a particular diet but rather encouraging education. I’ve seen any number of people back on WW for the 3rd, 4th, etc. times and I don’t want that to be me. I want to learn from this WLJ and not regain it. In that respect, I like that weight loss is hard. It reminds me of why I don’t want to have to do this again.

Dad and I Fathers’ Day
well not really, I’m doing WW for me which is why I’m going to be successful – but today I was going it for Dad. Today is four years that Dad is gone and in the past, I might have “toasted” his memory with food. I’m not going to lie – I might have done the same today if I could find “Dots” which were his favorite candy – but not to excess.

10 weeks, really? Totally doesn’t feel that long. Can someone tell me where the first half of 2010 has gone?
So I WI this morning after yesterday’s scale debacle. I tried yesterday and it read EE. I knew I might have gained some this week, but it wasn’t 120lbs to keep me from being able to be weighed. New batteries and everything was AOK. Except the number.
Not going to lie, was somewhat bummed to see a gain. I know that’s not PC around here and we’re supposed to know that gains happen. Well they might – but they still . . . → Keep Going: week 10, first gain
I too was watching The Biggest Loser last night and like SoonerGRL, I was thinking about the Whys? I have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels. She’s a good pusher, but at times I think she goes too far. I don’t know how I’d react to a trainer like that. When I got my free PT sessions at the gym the GM asked what kind of trainer I wanted and my answer was “not one like the Biggest Loser”, yet I watch every week.
My whys, as I think about them now:
