Rachael Ray Teen Weight Loss Challenge Followup

I wrote before about Christina from the Teen Weight Loss Challenge on the Rachael Ray Show. This is the young woman who wants to lose 70 pounds by prom. Fridays episode showed the families reaction to the first show. I feel for her mother. I’m glad her father seems to be coming around. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like the most important person in the group is convinced yet.

You can see that video here

Christina still has that “I think” kind of mentality. Screw “I Think” take action and do. She still seems to be focused on defending her previous choices. Arguing with her mother for wanting her to eat healthy. From what has been shown her mother only said something about the massive amounts of food they were gorging on. This was not mean as Christina seems to think.

I can’t stand when fat people act like victims. I’m still fat myself. As you may have seen here on my fat burning journal,  I have lost over 80 pounds. I weighed 355 pounds less than 7 months ago and it was my fault. I could sit and whine about all the horrible things that have went wrong in my life and believe me I have stories to tell, but who the EFF cares. These events didn’t make me fat, how I dealt with them did.

I know Christina will probably never see this. I would post on the board over at the Rachael Ray show, but they are deleting any message that has even a little bit of perceived negativity.

Everyone on that board is calling her an inspiration, this is a bit premature don’t you think. To Christina you have an opportunity to inspire many thousands of people here; situations like this do not come often in life. Take advantage of it.
It’s great that your father is seeing that he had a hand in doing this to you. It’s about time you take some responsibility. Your past choices were wrong, accept that and move on. Don’t dwell on the past, change the future. When you continue to defend your previous poor eating choices you are sabotaging your own goals.

Taking comfort in food was a problem for most of us at one time or another. You need to change your outlook see that with the help of your own hand that food made you like this. As I said don’t dwell in the past and beat yourself up over it, just blame the food. Replace the comfort that food once brought with a vision of the new you that is on its way. Take comfort in the new you.

No more excuses, no more whining just doing. I’m no expert but I can tell you, that is the only real way to lose weight.

Diet Motivation is it Just Point Less

Of course diet motivation is not Just Point Less, where does it come from though?

As I have just reached a milestone I feel the need to write about getting motivated to diet. For the first time in years I am below 275 pounds. That is over 80 pounds lost since March of this year.

I thought I would write about my diet motivation. I am writing this in part to find out what it is myself. This year has been pretty rough without a doubt. I’m not sure why I keep going, but I do. In a way I miss my comfort food, however when I am tempted to eat a big greasy pizza I just can’t even bring myself to do it. I am satisfied with a slice once in a while.

I guess I should begin at the beginning. My most recent weight loss journey began in March of this year. There were two major motivating factors that helped me to take action and lose weight.

In March I contacted someone who was once very important to me. I won’t go in to too much detail. She was one of my best friends and I’d have to say probably my first love. I never really told her that. Even when I lost a bunch of weight back then I still had that fat guy mentality. I’m not sure I had the intention of telling her that now; it has been so many years. I’m not some obsessed screwball. I just wanted to see her and know that she was doing well. We talked and were set to meet up after twelve years. It was incredible hearing her say that she was happy to hear from me and couldn’t wait to see me.

Then it hit me I looked in the mirror and saw just how fat I was. This is the point that I took a picture of myself without a shirt on as a reminder. You know It’s funny, when we first met I was 350 when she left I was 220. She never once held being fat against me. I still didn’t want her to see me this way.

I knew I had to do something. My aunt who was seventy five years old had just reached her goal weight after losing a considerable amount. I don’t recall the amount right now. That was enough for me this gave me the diet motivation I needed. If at 75 she could do it, I could do it at 32. I found a great fat burning diet and got started.

As I said, this year has been rough. I suffered a spinal injury that has changed my life. This really limited the amount of exercise I was capable of. I did not care. I pushed through. I still push through.

Then one day the phone calls stopped. She would not answer when I called. There was no explanation at all just silence. From I’ll call you tomorrow to nothing. This was a couple of months ago and that is her decision to make. I must say it left me reeling and confused. I fear I may have self sabotaged things to a certain extent. If you are overweight please take action now, don’t wait for situations like this.

That is not the point of this post though. Everyone goes through let downs and hard times. What is it that keeps them motivated to push through? In previous times I would have said screw it and ate 2 pounds of macaroni covered in ricotta and mozzarella and moved on to pizza and whatever else might make me feel better. This time is different and I don’t know why.

My desire to gorge on comfort foods is not even evident. I know sometimes I go back to that fat picture to help my diet motivation. My motivation has never completely disappeared though. I still wake up and am focused on losing more weight. I have even thought about training for a marathon once the weight is gone. If my back will let me that is.

Sorry I know this was a long rambling post. I’m just trying to figure out where my diet motivation comes from. I don’t know why something that would normally throw me into a feeding frenzy did not. I will say this I’m not happy but I am still motivated.

The solace I once found in food is gone and that is a good thing. Unfortunately it leaves me a bit lost at times. I rarely drink. I don’t do drugs. I enjoy exercising to an extent but the pain becomes unbearable every time. It is hard to find that comfort in anything. Nonetheless I still stay motivated to lose weight.
