Observations from a girl trying to lose weight:

1. chocolate is an incredible force that can break anyone's will-power to stay away from sweets.
2. i don't enjoy exercising - it is work - no matter how "fun" you make it.
3. playing games/sports for exercise can be fun, but other than dancing or swimming, there aren't many games/sports one can do my themselves - and if you don't have a pool, that also knocks out swimming.
4. Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels will kick your butt regardless of which DVD you use (and you don't even have to be on the BL ranch).
5. chocolate has the power to derail any diet.
6. the show, Biggest Loser, can inspire you and make you feel very guilty all at the same time.
7. buying smaller clothes is very exciting.
8. fitting into those "goal" jeans is a great motivator/reward.
9. i have developed a love/hate relationship with my scale - and sometimes i wonder how accurate it actually is.
10. did i mention chocolate (and pizza) are my cryptonite?
Bonus observation: losing weight and getting healthy is difficult and there are many times i want to quit, but it is also a very rewarding experience that has helped me grow spiritually and emotionally as well as become physically healthy.
