Last week was rough.. you know with controling my appetite.. but what is so nice is knowing that even at those rough moments we can .. I can survive.. I can be hungry and be okay. We can debate the diet pill world through and through. Saying that something that can give us a boost is wonderful.. We can debate that Detox diets are a quick start to any program.. but the fact is.. you can detox and detox.. and starve and starve.. You can take diet pill after diet pill...but if you are not willing to make life style and lifetime changes than you will be detoxing your life away.. Change is hard... change is harder the older we are. The coolest thing is though.. we can do it.. we can change.. anyone can make changes to enhance their lifestyle.. thats what I think... You know my obsession with all these fat shows lately... that have been on TLC .. the latest one is on ABC and it involves Shaq going and helping a group of obese children.. at first I was a little put off.. but then when Shaq said this is about saving these kids lives right now.. I loved it.. those kids are precious and I hope this is not just a flash in the pan for them.. I hope they learn to love exercise at a young age.. I hope they learn that they are in control of what they eat.. I hope that as adults they can look back at this and thank god that they were lucky enough to have had that opportunity years ago.. I hope this for them..who would not hope that a child would not have to travel the roads we each have traveled as warriors of weight ... I am going to check this show out and see how he is with these kids.. We really do have a problem in our society with obesity and obesity that affects are children. To see a child who is more than 100 pounds over weight really breaks my hurt.. We each know what he or she is in for unless they make Life style changes and learn they are actually in control.. and control is a very powerful feeling once it is mastered. Being able to be free enough to be in control is a great thing. Putting good foods and an occasional treat in your mouth.. and not feeling as if the world is crumbling around you and that you are a complete failure is liberating.. Eating to live and enjoying cooking and creating new recipes is fun. Discovering new food and some of these taste wonderful and some.. well rather awful.. this good.. all good..
Wish me well.
Wish you well and wish those kids well too.

I didn't get to see the show - but I've heard of another show that a mom and her child on (the boy was 10 and very over weight). They show had a computer program that could show the child how he would look as he aged if he stayed the way he was and kept gaining at the rate he was - by the time he was 30 he looked awful, like a very old tired and worn out man. It was very sad. I hope it was a wake up call to his parents and to him also. His parents started him down this road of unhealthiness - hopefully they can work together to improve their lives.
