Did anyone catch the week 17 episode of the Biggest Loser? I know the Blazer game was on so many people missed it and if so, I'd encourage you to check it out on Hulu.com.
I thought the challenge the contestants needed to accomplish was brilliant. I've embedded a snippet of that challenge below so that you can check it out.
What a symbolic way to recognize how much weight those participants had lost. Amazing really to see how much of a struggle it was for them to accomplish the task in the beginning with all that weight attached to their bodies.
This reminds me of Glenda's directive to pick up the dog food bags in the grocery store.
I need to do these things again when prepping for my next 50 pounds. I mean, I've come to terms with what 100 pounds means (even though I'm two pounds shy - ugh!) but I need to grasp what another 50 and reaching my goal will do for me.
As part of The Healthy Weigh's Team Challenge last week, we had to list out the seven ways in which our lives would change when we hit our goal. That was a really hard task for me as I'm accomplishing the things that I had originally written down when I started at The Healthy Weigh in September.
I need to create a new "goal" list.
So, instead of settling for getting on my horse without a bench or step (which I can already do), could I really dare to think that in another 50 pounds I could bound onto my horse bareback without any aid? Shocking!
Could I perhaps ... just maybe ... be able to walk into a room of strangers with confidence?
And could I really be comfortable accepting a compliment? Really?
What a great opportunity to adjust my focus.
I'm not finished with my goal. I am over 1/2 way through but now it's time to complete the journey. As Letha and Glenda readily point out, having a vision for my life at goal will be paramount to my success.
With that, I'm off to think, ponder, and revise my list. I need to come up with some really great stuff. And don't worry, I'm sure I'll be torturing you all with the list just as soon as I come up with it!
In the meantime, feel free to share things that made it onto your list. I could use a bit of inspiration!
