I love this show as well. Even though the amount of time it takes for them to lose weight is a bit excessive, the transformations are amazing and inspiring. I've read Jillian's books and even she admits the rapid weight loss isn't so healthy and some of the challenges are a bit far fetched for the contestants. So it's the producers of the show pushing them for rapid results, I guess.

I watch the show online. So I always have to wait until they post it :)

I totally agree that doing it this way will help keep them more honest.

I'm watching. And HotMom, I really like how it's set up this year with the weigh-in's. I think it will keep people from guzzling a bunch of water right before the wegh-in and throwing that week.

So...what does everyone think of the show so far? Do you like how they have the weigh in's and do the competition afterwards?

I will probably watch all season, but it's going to be a little different this time. I was watching it either with friends or from my treadmill last season, and I won't be able to do that this season, but I'm hoping I'll get inspired and work toward having a healthy second half of my pregnancy.

Absolutely! I love BL and have watched every season. I know that losing weight that fast is not realistic for me, but I find it inspiring. It is good to know that you are not the only one struggling with your weight.

I get discouraged sometimes as well but I know that it isn't healthy to lose that amount of weight at one time plus they have alot of sagging skin since their body can't keep up with the lose and that is something that I just don't want to have.

I'll be watching, I love the show and Bob!!! But it is a little discouraging to me because I can't lose weight that fast. I wish I could workout 10-12 hours a day like they do!!!

I'll be watching! I'd watched pretty regularly up until a couple seasons ago. I've got my DVR all queued up for this new season hoping it'll be a nice little motivation each week.

Yep, I am going to watch it.

The joy of being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form possession, achievement, person

or

even-through anything that happens. That joy cannot 'Come'

to you

ever. It emantes from the formless dimention 'Within You',

from

consciouness itself and thus is one with who you are.

Love and peace,
Mary

I will only when my dad tapes it for me so I hope it will be every week. I only have dial up internet so I can't watch it on there and I don't have cable so I depend on my dad taping shows for me to be able to watch them.

I love the show I find it so encouraging that people are losing weight even though it is faster then I think is healthy. Plus I like when they give little tips before the commericals.
