Makeover Week

Yes, I am a fan of the Biggest Loser.
I haven't seen every season, but I have enjoyed the ones that I have.
This season is no different.
Sure there are always contestants that I don't like so much...(Brendan), and others that seem to grow on me.....(Ada).
But ultimately I just enjoy seeing the amazing transformations these people go through.

This week is
Makeover week.
Always a fun episode to watch.
They revealed their transformations with a fashion show.
Watching each of them strut their stuff on the catwalk you could see how thrilled each of them was with the progress they have made so far.
Watching some of their families/friends reactions when they got to see them was so touching.

Seeing the faces of Frado's children brought me to tears.  These kids are in their teens, and have never in their lives seen their Dad at the weight he currently is.  He had always been much heavier.

It made me think.
My kids have only know this version of me.
That makes me sad.

I want to show them a Mom that can be active with them.
A Mom that cares enough for them, AND for herself, to do what it takes to get healthy and strong.
To prove to them that anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

Makeover week.
Eventually I'm going to have my own Makeover week.
I think that needs to be a reward for reaching one of my goals.
Not sure which goal yet, but I'll think on that.
I have so work to do.
