I usually watch this show a few days late and on my iPhone after the kids are asleep.
Well I watched the finale last night and my kids weren't in bed yet- I know tsk tsk.
But my oldest saw the before and after of some of the contestants and he said something that both inspired and saddened me.
When the eventual winner stepped out he was shocked and in awe of their new found physique.
He said: Mom, why don't you look like that?
I told him it wasn't that simple. They go away from their lives to restart them. They exercise six hours a day and eat only one serving. They don't eat carbs or sugar.
And you know what I know I could achieve similar results I just don't have the support or the self control to do it. I don't have the will power to bake my husband fresh bread three times a week and not eat any. I can't seem to control myself when my daughter and I whip up banana bread.
I think if it was just me I could adopt a different lifestyle. I don't know how anyone does it. My husband absolutely refuses to reduce his carb and meat intake.
Give me something to work with. Should I just give it up and stare at my family while the savor my creations ( disclaimer: I love my newish kitchen aid)
Anyone else feel like this show inspires but also makes you feel less than?
