Why does it take soooo long to lose weight?  It seems like it takes 5 minutes to gain a pound and 2 weeks to lose it.  I am so tempted by the weight loss ads that vow you can lose 50 pounds in a week (ok, slight exaggeration) but I know it's not healthy nor does it probably work.  I know that the beautiful skinny model-like person advocating these methods has looked that way since birth and never had to worry about those pesky thunder thighs and loose-n-floppin arms.  But I am still drawn to the promise of taking a little pill and waking up looking like Heidi Klum (huge sigh).

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure that I'd need to take a whole bottle of pills to look like Heidi Klum.

Me too! Our "Health & Wellness Committee" at work is sponsoring a Biggest Loser contest at work to try to get some of our fat asses up and moving. I guess since there really isn't a little magic pill, I'll give it a shot. If anyone has any tips that actually help a "normal" overweight person to achieve a weight loss goal, please share.

I only want to wake up looking like Heidi Klum if Seal is lying right there next to me when I do wake up!

Maura--if I woke up looking like Heidi Klum, the only thing I'd want next to me when I woke up would be a full length mirror.

What good is it waking up looking like Heidi Klum if there's not someone there to worship you? The mirror won't be much good for that!

I was going to go into a whole spill about genetics and history of evolution, but then decided not to bore you all. I agree with Marinka.

I want to look like heidi klum too. or jessica alba. or any one of those bitches who get to have a poster on my boyfriend's wall. why do they get to be there, huh? stupid skinny bitches. my favorite is when guys say "oh, you don't need to lose that much weight. that'd be too skinny" and then proceed to drool over some size negative 12 chick on tv.
