I'm not lazy; I'm human

I'm not sure how many of the people who read these blogs are overweight or have ever struggled with their weight. 

Also, I'm not sure how many of you watch "The Biggest Loser." I have never watched this television program until this season. If you are watching this season, I compare myself as a mixture between Shay and Amanda. I'm scared like Shay when it comes to food and the choices I have to make when it comes to eating food. I also see a lot of me in Amanda, excuses and whining. 

Losing weight has to be for you. You have to be ready to put yourself first and commit every choice you make to your diet and exercise plan. I've lost more than 20 pounds. That's not great when you are in a fitness challenge, but it's a heck of a lot better than gaining 20 pounds. 

I've been exercising at home and also going to the gym when I get a chance. 

If you are reading this and again saying to yourself that I'm lazy and full of excuses, then I am sorry you feel that way. Put yourself in my shoes for a day and you let me know how easy it is. With that said, I'm looking forward to the next weigh-in. 





As  a mother of a little one, full time employee and student I know how you feel. Finding the time and motivation takes time and motivation. You have to want it and have to be dedicated. I think you are trying and I Wish you great success!!
