PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

1. "RE: Too Rigorous?"
From watching previous seasons, the first weigh-in usually has large weight loss and then the next one has a big drop-off. (someone who lost 18 pounds might lose 6 pounds the next week) Usually your initial weight-loss is water weight and then you move on to the actual fat.

Keep in mind that the people on this show know what they're in for, to a degree (since this is not the first season) and they haven't had a healthy life-style, hence their weight. They have a trainer to help monitor their progress and medics are available if there is a problem. (there usually isn't)Anyone adjusting to a big change in their routine will have difficulty at first, but they are all there and desperately don't want to leave because they know they're getting healthy. (from previous seasons, most of the people there could care less about winning the money - they want to lose weight)

I don't know if I addressed your concerns or not. But this show is pretty much like a "jump start" for those who are on it. Intensive retraining of their habits and forming new ones so that when they go home they can continue to eat healthy and exercise regularly. (sports teams have training camps where they eat, sleep and breathe their sport for a week but it's not their normal every-day routine away from the camp)
