I loved seeing everyone with their families. How cute are Sione’s kids? And Aubrey’s? So sweet. It’s funny, I’ve heard so much about them, all their loved ones, and so it was so cool to see them all. To see how excited they were to see the cast. Isn’t it amazing how different, how fantastic everyone looks after only 10 weeks? 5 people tonight close to losing 100 lbs at the weigh-in? and Mike’s at 118!! Really everyone is just so incredible. I hope that Max was inspired by Mike’s success. Mike told me that he helped Max quit his job at a fast food restaurant (which is where Mike used to work, with too much access to all that crap food) and put him on a fitness plan. So I am so hopeful to see Max on the right track at the finale!
As I’m struggling to lose the ‘baby weight’ I am even more in awe of their efforts than I usually am. I am hosting my own personal ‘weekly weigh-in’. lol. I felt so bad for Kristin this week. Such a tough thing to see on the scale. And I can only imagine how frustrating it was for the Blue team to keep losing.
You saw Filipe and Sione working out with Bob this week... if you were confused, check out the bonus scenes on the BL site for the details:
And I loved how Jillian told Tara to listen to her. Tara’s tough, and clearly driven, but obviously, Jillian feels she’s pushing herself too hard at this point, and sometimes the body does need to recuperate. I imagine Jillian wouldn’t say “slow down” unless absolutely necessary. Am I right?!
Speaking of, jillian texted me to say we should work out together soon. Ack! I am so not ready to be training with her again!!! I predict a butt kicking in my future. Ha.
Whew – Days has been busy lately. I got everyone on my facebook page all riled up when I teased about how cute the guys on set look all dressed up in tuxes. I can’t help it. It’s true!
p.s. Aubrey did eat a cookie, but since it was for Helen it didn't affect the outcome of the race so we didn't air that part.
