I am not obese.
I am not overweight.
I am in relatively good shape.
Before I was pregnant with Nathan, I was overweight. For me, that was at the highest, 164. In college, I weighed around 130. I always got mad at the scale, but never really did anything about it. I just got mad after I got off it, and I would cut out a cookie here and then, but never did I truly adjust my diet nor exercise daily. I looked at myself and I didn't look fat. That must be how it starts for some people.
Now I look at pictures from 2006 and think: I was overweight! Why didn't I do something about it sooner?
So, now I am in decent shape. Granted, I can't jog as fast as I would like, and I still haven't made it to a 30 minute 5K...but, I can do an 11 minute mile no problem, can bike for miles with a 35 pound anchor attached (Nathan), and wear size 8 pants and jeans again! My normal weight currently hovers between 146-148, which, is 18 pounds off my high (or would you say that's a low?) of 164!
So, when I watch The Biggest Loser, I eat. I usually eat dinner, but then, for some reason, that show makes me eat chocolate.
or whatever I can scrape up that is delicioius.
That is probably the opposite of what the show intends, but I know I will never be 164 again (unless I am pregnant). I don't like the way that feels, or looks, or how it could impact my health (and my fear of things like diabetes).
