Posts Tagged ‘the biggest loser’

Today I have been searching the internet looking for a diet and fitness programme that is designed around beginners; we all have to remember that this is a yearlong challenge/project.  At the end of the day I am 22 stone, if I jumped in and started killing myself I would soon lose heart and interest. I am fully committed to this being a slow start and building it up over the whole year. All efforts lead to the final push, if you haven’t noticed by now I love Blackadder, so visualise the final episode of Blackadder goes forth. One whole year till I go over the top, although I think I will have to jump the trench quite a lot over the coming months.

The only exercise I enjoy is the 3 minutes of disappointing the missus every couple of days. If you are overweight you are much more likely to cause injury to yourself if you jump in at the deep end. As I write I am watching “The Biggest Loser” on ITV, if you haven’t seen it, they have taken 6 overweight/obese adults and the aim is to lose the most weight in the quickest amount of time. Now I’m sure they have experts advising on the show etc, but everything I read points towards not going full throttle straight away. On the show they are practically killing them. One guy who is a good foot shorter than me weighs 28 stone; he has put on 10 stone in 4 years. They are making his physically sick with what they are putting him through; I don’t think this sets him up to carry on the lifestyle change in the long run. I think you have to enjoy exercise if you are to carry it on and enjoyment is not something I notice on the show. They look ready to commit murder. Throw in 2 trainers that look like they didn’t make the marines, but only for failing the personality test then you have everything you need for a programme. Finish the show, lose 4 stone in 1 day and everyone goes home happy. My feeling is that in 3 months the weight will be back on and lifting the remote control will again be the daily exercise routine of choice.

After an extensive search of fitness programs for the large, they all recommended a visit to the doctor for a health check before you start. So I will make an appointment and take it from there. Everything is still all geared up for the 13th May…..

Tootlepip!
