Letting go of more baggage

Are you tired yet of hearing of my various areas of "breakthrough" ? Well, then just click off this post and come back later! Muwhaaahaahaa

This morning I decided to watch the finale of The Biggest Loser that I dvr'd last Tuesday. Can I be honest? At the beginning of this season I said I wasn't going to watch it anymore, but somewhere along the way I couldn't resist. EVEN when I didn't like it, I still watched. I invested time into it ~ two hours every single week. That is two hours that could have been invested into my relationship with my husband, with friends, with God.

Don't get me wrong. When I was at my heaviest, I longed to be on the show with millions of other viewers. As I began losing the weight, I realized I didnt' need that type of "hype" to get the job done. Now? Now I am honestly disgusted with the simple fact that it seems they look for the heaviest contestants so that they can play "God" and push a miracle on some lives. Maybe I have it all wrong, but as I begin dropping the things that I considered baggage holding me back, I no longer need the "support" as false as it was when I was watching it that the show offered me.

I know... many of you are fans. I was too, once. But I refuse to take part in the show anymore. This season truly sealed the deal, and I have reached a level of disgust that will not leave me wanting more. No thanks. IN fact, I think my "vision" for what I want to spend my time on is maturing, and TV is not what it used to be. There is so much "junk" and when I wince because of a scenario on TV, or a word spoken I know it's time to move on. I am not saying that I am giving up "TV", but I am going to make much wiser choices. There truly are not many good shows on anymore.
