"Losing It"

Healthy Life

Did you happen to catch 'Losing it with Jillian' on NBC this past week?

We all know Jillian Michaels as the tough and sometimes not too nice trainer on the weight-loss show 'The Biggest Loser' so when I saw the preview for her new show, I just knew I would want to watch it.

In the show’s first episode, Jillian helps a Massachusetts family change their unhealthy lifestyle and negative self image. Basically, Jillian stays with the family for one week and helps them get started on what will hopefully become life/health goals and then checks back in on the family a few weeks later to see how they are doing. Jillian provided the family with direction, tough love and, as is her fashion, a big reality check!

In the first hour-long episode we can see some of the reasons why losing weight and leading a healthy lifestyle can be so difficult.  It’s not just about having the desire to be healthy, but one’s family, self esteem and environment can all contribute to our health decisions. I am looking forward to watching more episodes....

This show got me to thinking about all the barriers in our life that keep us from taking care of our bodies.  For me, I constantly have to remind myself that I have to schedule time for just me into my family’s calendar, otherwise all sorts of errands and other obligations take over.  What sort of things keep you from meeting your health goals?
