Is it just me or does it seem like they never take a real break these days? Not that I'm complaining..I could go with no show breaks!

I have been on BL withdrawal since the finale of Season 8. My DVR has been set for weeks. I'm so looking forward to being able to watch a season and be motivated the entire season. I started my weight loss journey on 10/26/2009 so I only got the tail end of last season as motivation, but this season I am hoping to kick it in high gear.

Same here, on the workout motivation. I record it and watch it while I'm working out to keep me going.

Same here!

I simply cannot wait!!

It's the best show. Like ever. In addition - I think it's an important show getting entertainment out of Super Important Stuff like working out, losing weight and maintaining a diet.

Well, my husband just came in to remind me that it's BL time tomorrow. My kids got all excited. I feel....well, not excited. I have been a huge fan and the whole family lines up and stays up til 10! I started my weight loss this year in January and was enormously committed. I thought it was so cool to be losing with the BL crew. Staying up until 10 became harder and harder as I rose earlier and earlier to work out.

Then week after week, the language on the show intensified, the commercials lengthened, the fake conversations grew, and product placement became the name of the game. I'm not sure I'll make it through this season. In season 8, I went to bed early just to avoid the hundred commercials in the last half hour.

I really miss the good old days of season 3 or 4. It was so much better then. I'm really sad because I loved the motivation and everything. If this season is the same as last one, than I'm done for sure. Need to find something else... but what?

I loved the change this past season, I loved that even though there were teams it was not about the trainner it was about the contestants. I liked that everyone worked with both trainners and that bob and Jill worked together for the betterment of the contestants.

WooHoo, I'm excited!! I agree though, I HATE the product placements, the fake conversations, etc. Thankfully I dvr it, so I can go right through all of that.
