I love The Biggest Loser. It's an inspiring show. A few months ago I posted about all the lessons I've learned the six times I've watched the show (which is a big deal for me as I don't love television).
The other night it hit me that The Biggest Loser is a lot like Extreme Home Makeover. I remember seeing that show when we were building our house. I got irate. They could build a house in one week. We couldn't get our countertops done in one week! But I had to face the facts: Extreme Home Makeover is not reality. The Biggest Loser isn't either. Very few of us are going to lose 17 pounds in one week.
I try to remember to concentrate on the important stuff, the scale is moving in the right direction and I'm making good choices every day. I will return to my pre-pregnancy weight just like our house finally did get finished. We enjoy those countertops every day.
