Eye Opening Experience
My fiance and I were at Dicks Sporting Goods the other night. I hear “Oh my gosh come here and pick this up!” My Fiance had found the free weights and had picked up a dumbbell that was the same weight that she wants to lose. I walked over and picked up a 40 lb dumbbell (the amount I want to lose). I couldn't believe this was the extra weight I was carrying around. I can't imagine how much more energy I would have if I wasn't carrying this extra weight. If you find yourself in a sporting goods store, I HIGHLY suggest you do this quick exercise. It was quite an eye opener, and something I keep in mind when I want to do some emotional eating.
Ryan Didn't Learn
I was watching The Biggest Loser and Bob (the trainer) said Ryan (the winner from season one had gained all his weight back. What a shame. He had gone through all that work and now had nothing to show from it. As Bob put it, “He lost all the weight, but didn't learn anything.” I have added a whole “The Biggest Loser” section to our Amazon store.
