But Kelly isn’t the only one who is having problems. Ryan tells us that he has cheated a few times, eating gummy worms and pumpkin pie. He has had time alone too, and that has always been the worst time for him. We see his casting tape, as he chows down in the car. Hang in there Ryan.
Kelly and her girlfriends go on a hike. She tells us that she wants to get up there and tell all those women out there that women can do it. Kelly leads her friends on a “Jillian” style run up a hill. Her friend Jeanie tells us that, before, Kelly always lagged behind. She’s leading the pack now, that’s for sure.
Ryan and his wife check out the gym at the mall. He feels as though he has a good grasp on what he needs to be doing, and he begins teaching Mariah some of the workout.
Gary takes his kids to the beach where they roller blade. His daughter says that before, he had to keep up with them. Now, they have to keep up with him. It was such a struggle before. He calls all of this a lifestyle change. Nice shot of Gary and family walking into the sunset at the beach.
They are all struggling, though. Ryan and Kelly miss Jillian, and Gary says that not having Bob around is harder than having him there. Kelly says that she is starting to have pain in her feet and remembers how Jillian used to help her when she had problems. Now she is on her own. I wonder if any of them called Bob or Jillian during this period of time. I think I would have tried.
With 50 minutes left in the show, our final three are at six weeks and counting. Kelly visits a doctor. The pain in her feet has increased. She is “frustrated beyond belief” and mad, especially since she never had problems when she was heavier. The doctor tells her that she has over-use tendonitis. She’s putting a demand on her body that she just can’t handle. She goes for a second opinion. One doctor thinks it may be the beginning of stress fractures, while the other suspects plantar fasciitis. Neither is good. She gets a boost from her father, who tells her that she can work through it. She is worried though, and knows that she is wasting time that she desperately needs. She is hoping for a miracle.
Four weeks to go, and Ryan has lost 15 pounds. Kelly calls Ryan a “weight-loss” machine, but he is not terribly confident. Gary knows how dedicated the other two are, and this keeps him motivated. Ryan says, “Gary and Kelly, I’m coming after you.” It is certainly getting tense, that’s for sure.
With seven days until the final weigh-in, Gary finds himself leveling off. He realizes that he is very close to his target goal, but it is discouraging to only lose a pound a day. He is still weighing himself every day, though. It’s interesting in that, although they can’t see their progress, it is evident to us as viewers. Gary is positively thin now. I can’t wait for the “live” part.
We flip to Kelly who is getting ready to go out on her first date since she’s lost the weight. She looks fabulous, and says she feels “beautiful and glowing and feminine.” She tells her date, Adam, that now that she is happy with herself, she is ready to be happy with someone else. No more insecurities if the date doesn’t work out. They seem to have a nice evening, though, and kiss goodnight.
Ryan reports in after a two-hour workout. He says that sometimes working out is great, and sometimes it’s tough. A three-hour workout after working for nine hours is tough, he says. Sometimes he finds himself grabbing a catnap in his car at lunchtime. Whatever it takes, I guess.
Back to Kelly. She is trying to compensate for her feet, and it is getting harder and harder for her. She is starting to lose it, actually. She’s still afraid of the scale, even though she has lost 17 pounds. She hasn’t weighed herself in a week and is dreading gaining weight. She says, “It sucks to be a prisoner of her fear.” She sounds a little like Lisa.
Mariah, Ryan’s wife is throwing a finale party and has invited all of their friends. Everyone cheers as he walks out in his new suit. Some of these people haven’t seen him since he came home and he got a lot of “Wows.”
Gary is nervous and excited. Mary is excited too, and very proud of him. He has a new outfit and is looking fine. He tells us that he’s already won. He’s happy and healthy and “winning will just cap it all off.”
Kelly gets a party too, and her friends are still wearing red. Her father calls her a “rose that has bloomed.” She sure is. She is also nervous, but at the same time, she is proud. She is hoping to see Gary and Ryan’s mouths drop when they see her.
It’s time to go, and they all say their good-byes. Ryan hopes that the next time he sees his friends he will be the official “biggest loser.” Gary’s ready to “kick some real ass,” and he says he will be disappointed if he doesn’t win. Kelly says that the work in progress is much further along. She is ready to “dazzle the world.” Ryan says that coming in second or third is like “kissing your sister!” And they are off.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
