Actually, now that I think about it more, I'll take the chef... Julia Child. French cuisine and OSS stories!

I'd take the trainer - it was close between that and the chef though.

already have the trainer and I work out at my chiro's office too, so exercise is covered. My maid would have to multitask by cleaning and cooking.

I don't mind doing those things. Please add a massage therapist to the list. :)

A maid! I like to cook and to have someone clean up the kitchen when I was done would be wonderful! I'd have plenty of time to exercise all I wanted if I wasn't worried about getting housework done!

A chef would be nice as I would have better control over my healthy eating and portions, but honestly I just have to go with a maid. Why? Because I tend to clutter stuff up and get behind on my housework. Having a maid would ensure me to have a relaxing oasis of order. That and I could have visitors anytime.

Really hard choice but I think the chef as I end up eating the same things all the time because I'm not really creative and a pretty picky eater so if someone could make really nutritious meals that I'd like, that would help a lot toward the eating right part of my program.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

Hands down, the maid.
I like to cook, don't need a chef!
Life's not busy enough to need a "personal assistant"
I could probably benefit from a trainer but... then who would do the laundry..? still me? no thanks! maid all the way!

I originally posted that I'd choose the personal trainer over the chef but in thinking about it more I'm changing my preference to

a MAID !!

I would choose the personal trainer... someone cool like Jillian Michaels who could also counsel me on the cooking too.

I would take the chef. Then I can spend the cooking time at the gym and stay on track x2!

I would take the personal chef. Food is so important in weight loss and someone to really control that for me would be great!

Since I'm at goal weight, I would take a personal chef. Where was he when I was trying to lose the weight. Ha.

I'm motivated to work out, and I love to cook, so yes, someone to come in and clean would be lovely!

Maid. I would choose Anna Bates, from Downton Abbey -- if (and only) Mr. Bates were not part of the deal. I don't trust him any more.

That is a tough call. Hmm... I would love to have Anne Burrel cooking for me, but I would also like to have Jillian Michaels as a personal trainer. The chef would be beneficial and help me out w/ the whole family, so I guess I would have to go w/ the chef.

I suppose I would choose a maid.
I don't know who I would choose- someone who liked to clean, was friendly but not overly chatty and who likes animals because we have a lot of pets. Maybe a robot maid would be cool.

Congradulations you've won a contest and for a year you can have either a personal trainer of your choice, a personal chef of your choice, a personal assistant, or a maid? But you can only have one sorry. Which would you choose, and if you could choose who would you choose for the role?

Me it would deffinitely be a personal chef. I would love to have Rachel Ray come and cook for me for a year. Aren't imaginations wonderful?
