The challenge tonight of digging in the sand for the boxes of keys looked exhausting. There was one point where Rudy and Alan were standing next to each other with sweat dripping off them. I'm thinking that was a very good workout in and of itself. While the blue team's decision to give up the tickets home to stay at the ranch proved a wise one since they won the weigh-in, I have to say I'm impressed with the black team's trial run out in the real world. To have only one person gain weight and that only one pound showed determination and dedication. My jaw dropped when Danny registered a 15-pound loss while at home! But something I noticed was that he was the only one who didn't eat out. But even for those who did, I was happy to see them making wise food selections. Hopefully, they'll be able to continue doing that when they're back home for good. And it was interesting how they viewed their families' eating habits now, the same habits they had before heading to The Biggest Loser ranch.
Rudy is continuing to kick butt, registering a 14-pound loss this week. He has been in double digits every week, racking up an impressive 87-pound loss in 6 weeks. If he can hit a 13-pound loss next week, he will set a new Biggest Loser record for the fastest loss of 100 pounds.
When the black team voted Dina off tonight, I have to admit I was surprised. With Daniel posting the first weight gain of anyone this season and this being his second chance at the show, I thought it was logical to vote him off. I think his being positive and a big cheerleader to other contestants is what allowed him to stay around another week. I was really impressed with Dina's continued weight loss at home. And how cute is it that her son goes to the gym with her? And she looked great after her makeover.
