"Full effort is full victory." Mahatma Gandhi
Being a super-fan of The Biggest Loser for years, I knew what an accomplishment it was to make it to "Singles." At the Week 10 challenge, Alison unveiled an assortment of colored jerseys, marking the end of team efforts, and introducing us to our new identities and start of individual efforts. It was time to take everything we had learned over the first few months on the ranch and apply it solely for our own benefit. Going forward, I had only my effort to count on.... and I really liked that new kind of positive pressure.
The holidays are a special time of year filled with joy, singing, celebrating faith, and sharing time with loved ones... but it can also be a very hard time of the year emotionally for many. On average, people will gain somewhere in the neighborhood of seven pounds during the season from Thanksgiving through the New Year. I was one of those people on the high side of that average, and although I have no scientific study to back me up, I think it probably had a lot to do with me being emotionally obese.
Everyone deserves a second chance - everyone. Walking back into the house to kick off Week 6, Ruben was waiting on us with his big, warm, signature smile. The Red Team felt whole again, and knew this was the start of what was going to be a really good week - we hoped anyway! I don't know if you had been as tired as we were of the Blue Team winning everything in sight, but the Red Team just believed this week's challenge was going to be different.

After losing my best friend Francelina at the weigh-in, all I wanted to do was crawl into my bed and lick my wounds. But of course, the beautiful and dramatic Alison Sweeney informs us that our night is just beginning. One more person will be leaving the ranch. That's right! This week is about facing your fears and one person is about to take on the fear of leaving the ranch. They will be taken to an off-campus location and have to spend the week away from the trainers, the gym, and the other contestants. The person who leaves the ranch will be determined by a pop challenge.
