Do any of you watch this show? At first I was a little "meh" about it. I think because it was a little too real world scenario. They would spend 4-6 weeks at the weight loss facility, then do the rest at home. Most of them would lose weight, but when it comes to TV, we all want to see dramatic before and after's right?
Well, it seems like the show read my mind because now they're spending all 6 months at the "ranch" losing weight. It's much more dramatic and I think it's ultimately more helpful.
This week's episode really hit me. The girl was at a starting weight of like 255 I think and her boyfriend left her because he said he wasn't attracted to her anymore. (How does that NOT effect you?) Scott and have had some really frank discussions about weight. About MY weight in particular. I know my husband is more attracted to "healthy" looking women. This is not to be misunderstood as "fat" women. When we met I was around 175 which is my "healthy" weight. My heaviest was 257...right around the girl featured on HEAVY this week...which is not at all healthy or attractive, it's just plain fat. Today my weight is 225 (personal low since starting losing weight) GO ME. It's not anywhere near the goal of 175 and still pretty fat (let's be real) but it's a decent amount away from 257.
Being fat is hard. It's emotional and draining and overall just a clusterfuck or unpleasing stuff. More than that though, it can ruin relationships if you're not careful. Attractiveness is much more than physical. When I'm fat and not doing anything about it I'm depressed and grumpy and snappy and angry. I am not happy and dopey, but I am sleepy. Who wants to be around an angry fat woman? Not me!
If my relationship-o-meter is gaged by how many times my husband slaps my ass while walking by, or by giggling my boobs at random, then I think losing weight is helping. I hope it is, because he's the most important thing in my life and although I want to lose weight for me, I want it more for us.
Can I get a Holla back girls? Who's husband's do the boob tap? I know I can't be the only one.
