I recently got hooked on the show "Supersize vs Superskinny" via YouTube (US-er here) and though it seems silly to get an eiphany (sp?) from a reality show, I did. Although I've kept off around 20 pounds for two years now, I have continuously lost another ten, then gained it back, so on and so forth. It's like I hit 150 and...I couldn't figured out what was happening.

I realized from watching this show there is almost always a psychological reason, usually when we don't realize it, for changes in our diet. After a bit of soul searching, I realized I was a bit afraid of following in my borderline-anorexic mother's footsteps and thus re-creating the body hatred zone for my daughter as well. Through watching the show I also learned the dangers of eating disorders, and further ingrained into my head that it is better to be healthy than it is to be thin.

Since I came to this 'realization" I feel very calm, as opposed to stressed out as I did in my previous attempts, and the drive to push forward toward a healthier lifestyle-for everyone in my life, including me.

I just thought I'd share. If you feel a roadblock, dig into yourself, think about when you first started feeling 'bad' about your weight, and WHY you want to change it.
