Things that really hit me as I read the 'elmination blog's' of the people that have already left the show this season....found these on ivillage.com
Live for the moment (present), Live for you, your family, friends, Live for whatever makes you happy. Once you start realizing what you are living for then it becomes easier to lose weight.
Who do you think will make it to the end of the show
What advice can you give other people who are hoping to lose extra pounds? It's possible! Stop thinking about it and start doing something about it. It's that simple. Muscle definition is as addictive as crack. Get over that first crappy hump of getting started and you'll be fine. The greatest thing I've realized through this experience is that it is so much more than just losing weight. If all of your energy is exerted and focused on the physical aspect, you ultimately fail. It was more than just eating poorly or too much that got you to this point. There are mental, emotional, and spiritual revelations that you need to consider in this transformation.
.) What do you think your biggest weight loss obstacles will be now that you're dieting on your own? At first, it was realizing that I changed but the world had not. Everyday it is a struggle to say no to the ding dongs and hamburgers, but the trade off is so much greater. My energy leave is so much higher. The way I see myself is so much better. I can walk into a room full of people, look them straight in the eye and now know the feeling of them looking back at me not because I am fat but they can see the things I have always wanted them to see. Me.
What advice can you give other people who are hoping to lose extra pounds? Just don't stop. Keep moving. And be proud of yourself. Losing weight is a journey not a one day adventure. One of the producers told us to respect the scale. Every time I step on to the scale, even if my weight loss is only 2 pounds. I respect it. I earned it.
