I watched the show Thintervention yesterday.  It is on the Bravo channel.  Can't say I saw it at all as inspiration.  The people on the show seem emotionally retarded.  They seem self centered and don't really represent in my mind the struggles most of us have.  They all have money that seems to come not from hard work at anything.  Maybe I am reading it wrong, but less than impressed is my impression.  The show doesn't really seem to chronicle what we are going through on our journey to better health.  We all don't have a chef or a seemingly endless supply of wait staff.  Most of us have to go to work each day.  We have to plan ahead for our healthy meals.  We are challenged to keep house, cook, go to work, and then find time to exercise.  For those with young children, it is even more complicated.

Last week I read about another blogger who passed.  He didn't make it out of obesity.  He wanted to, but time ran out for him.  Hearing this, helps me stay focused on why we are either reading or writing a blog.
This is the second blogger who has passed since I started on blogger.  It makes me sad.  I know the two that passed wanted to find their way.

We need the support of others along our journey.  We need to know that we are not alone.  We are not alone.   I appreciate the support from my friends and fellow bloggers.   I don't plan on watching Thintervention again.  And that is just the way it is.


  1. that is so sad, when someone wants to change their current lot in life and they can't, that they waited just a bit too long, and it was too much for their bodies to handle. It is shows like thintervention who are in it for the money or fame and not what it really should be about- living life to the fullest and cherishing every moment.

    Thank you for reminding us that its not about tv shows or interventions, surgeries, or anything else. It is about real people doing real things, and working for real results

  2. I only watched a few minutes of the show, before I changed the channel.
