Do you watch it? My 600 lb Life on TLC? What do you guys think?
One of the first things that comes to mind for me is “There but for the grace of God go I.” That could have been me. My husband said “don’t they know they’re gaining weight?” Wait. What? My husband has been overweight. I reminded him that as you’re getting bigger and bigger, you certainly do know it. But it’s almost as if you’re powerless to stop it, right? Which for me, made me feel all the worse. Not only was I gaining weight and I knew it, I must be the worst person on earth! Good grief, how could I let myself do that??
Regarding the show, the folks are blessed with being able to have a gastric bypass (do you know whether they pay for them? or are they pro bono from the show?). So after their surgery, I’m so happy for them when they are totally into it & motivated to follow through and lose weight. Bravo! But the folks who keep making excuses… excuses why they’re not losing weight, or excuses about being able to walk for exercise. Tons of excuses. A lady named Pauline comes to mind. And Penny. So frustrating to watch them ignoring what they’re doing to themselves. And sad. :: sigh ::
I just wondered what you guys think about the show.
Other than that, I need to post a pic on my newbie Instagram page. It seems like such a pain in the butt to upload pics. Especially since I’m on my desktop computer all of the time (it’s my business, this is where I am most of the time) and my iphone seems so tiny. Oh well, that’s the way it is, right?
Alrighty, see you guys later! Onward!
