Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy

I heart me some Biggest Loser. Those fat people show up on my television and my arse is crocheted to the chair for the next two hours. And no, I don't have a snack while I watch. That would just be tacky.

I just love seeing them pumping iron, climbing the stairmaster, running (running!) on the treadmill and doing core body work. I love to see them with sweat trickling down their foreheads and the intense look in their eyes as they curse every damn cheeseburger they ever chowed on.

And I especially love that they are all fatter than me.

Well, until the next couple of weeks of the show when the women start dipping under two hundred. Then I start getting nervous. What the networks need is a show called, Not Quite Fat Enough. Because I'm too fat to wear those cute little flippy skirts, but not fat enough to get on TV. The no man's land of fat.

And I love the new emotional component they have on the show, where Bob and Jillian dig deeper to find out why these people are fat. What I want is for someone to look at them and say, "Look, I eat because I love food. It's tasty. It makes me happy and it is pleasurable to have something delicious doing the snoopy dance across my tastebuds."

Am I the only person in America who is overweight because I adore food? According to the Biggest Loser and Oprah, I just may be.

And I have to add that it would be easier to lose weight if I had Bob and Jillian with me all the time, though Jillian kind of scares me!

I have been going to the gym and walking, but honestly, it's hard when I'm so busy trying to be perfect (see last weeks post). Of course, being perfect means being in shape too. Sigh. I guess I'm going to have to work on it harder.

Who put out today's title?

It's a good day to start being perfect. I think I'll join you.

You are evil! I like that quality in aperson. Join the club I opened. I am no man's fat too. I wanna be hunky pile of muscles, but end up the way you do. Sad sad story. You are not alone.

I haven't watched that show yet, but after your post, I'm intrigued.

So, keep us posted on what it's like to be perfect. :)

BTW, your bog is incredibly entertaining. :)

Why don't rice cakes taste like chocolate? If we invented those, we'd be millionaires!

I haven't watched that. I got hooked on Celebrity Fit Club one weekend when I was sick and they ran marathons. It was quite motivating...until someone opened the bag of chips.

I'm right there with you. I'm not so big to be on TV but I could stand to lost some poundage. But, I know I eat because I LOVE the taste of food. That's the only reason. Are we really the minority???

OMG, you just completely nailed how I feel. Why do I have to have some huge issue to be overweight? I just like to eat crap. I love the Biggest Loser too, unfortunately, I am big enough to get on, I just can't take the time off. :) Maybe we should do an online version. :)
