Biggest Loser

                                               THE BIGGEST LOSER CLUB

We continued our tradition again this season by watching the Biggest Loser with the “Peanuts”.  We started watching it together after Peyton’s accident.  It has been a wonderful time together and being with good friends helps so much.  We love them.

This season, there is a woman named Abby.  In October 2006, her husband and 2 children were killed in a head on collision.  Her whole world was gone in an instant.  I miss my son constantly, but I still have my husband.  I cannot imagine having to come home to an empty house, especially in the early months of grief. 

I am inspired by her.  I don’t know where her “want to” comes from, especially after the tragedy she has endured (is enduring).  I watched her video on the BL website.  She said she didn’t want to dishonor her family by living the way she was living. 

After she weighed tonight (sorry, I don’t remember how much she lost), she made the statement, “death doesn’t scare me”.  She was saying the fear of death was not the motivational factor for her to lose weight.  I understand, death does not frighten me at all.  I don’t want to leave my husband here alone, I love him too much.

So what am I going to do?  I am going to press in and find my “want to”.  I am going to till up my desire to live life more today than I lived it yesterday.  I will “stir up” the gifts and callings God has placed on my life.  I am MORE THAN A CONQUEROR in every area of my life, including my weight.

I read over this post and I cannot believe I spill my guts like this.

p.s. Jillian scares me and she needs to quit dropping the F-bomb all the time.

Yeah, what is it with all the reality shows allowing contestants to talk like that and just bleeping it out?? It's not like we can't understand what they're saying.

Jillian freaks me out too! I have decided that I am a representative for the Curvey Girls Club! I like my curves and intend on embracing them! I am taking new members daily! lol!

Thank you Becky for spilling your guts :) I needed to be reminded to 'press in' & to 'till & stir up' the desires, gifts & callings in my life.

You said it best the other night. Jillian is a man.

And spilling guts is a pretty graphic statement.. :D

Thank you for your comment on my blog. As I read through some of your posts... I am always amazed at how God brings across my path other moms who have lost sons. You are not alone dear friend.

...and I have found... in spilling your guts... healing begins.

Jesus loves you dear friend.

death does not scare me either. i'm kinda looking forward to it (but not in that creepy, going to do something bad to myself kind of way). i just know that Heaven is real and when i die, i will finally get to be with Jesus! as well as Christian, many family members, and some close friends that passed away this summer.

but God has me here. while i am here, i want to serve Him with joy and honor Him in all things.

thanks for spilling your guts. it's a good thing.

I like that show too! It's inspiring! I was amazed at Abby's story! It even made Jillian cry! :)
It's amazing to see people press so hard for something they know they need/want! I can learn from them!
