So this is the episode that we get separated into teams which was a really stressful time for a lot of the contestants. I think when you get really connected to your trainer, it becomes very difficult to change. I know that I’m not a big fan of change at work so I understood. Jillian and I have been working together for such a long time that we decided that we would continue to work with one another so Black & Blue would stay connected. I was so happy that the Black team gave Jay another chance because he really deserved to be there. I was so sad for Arthur because of the weight that he had to lose, I believe that he could have also benefited by that “golden ticket”, but I gotta tell you that Arthur is doing so well at home and he is gonna blow us away at the finale….just wait!!!
Now let’s talked about that MESSED UP weigh in. The fact that Kaylee thought she was done at the ranch and her trainer was supporting that decision made me nuts. We have done such amazing work with so many people on The Biggest Loser Ranch and when people think that they are ready to go home, it is my job to remind them that they need to stick this out and continue to learn about themselves, which is really hard for so many people. When people get up there to “throw” the weigh in, it just puts a bad taste in my mouth and slaps the face of Biggest Loser. So when the Green Team decided to do what they did, it completely threw the balance off of the house and what ultimately happened is that someone went home that didn’t deserve to go home. It was just one of the lowest moments in Biggest Loser history for me. The hardest part after that night, for me, was to move on and not dwell in the past. I really believe that our past can really hold us back from growth, so the best thing that we all could do after that night is MOVE ON and NOT DWELL.
I think that the biggest lesson about this episode is to finish something that you started with everything that you’ve got. It is so easy to start something and lose motivation. The motivation has to come from within to help you push through when things get tough and you feel like you are ready to quit. Never give up on yourself and the dreams that you have for yourself and fight that urge that tells you that you’ve had enough and you are ready to quit. DON’T EVER QUIT!!!
