"Meet the Black Team" Season 4, Episode 2

A big congratulations to everyone on the black team who felt so rejected last week and came back strong by losing the most weight of the week. Jillian looked so excited she was about to burst, and her team certainly deserved that win after those crazy workouts she put them through! It was fantastic seeing the blue and red teams' reactions when they saw the black team waiting in the weigh-in room, although I have to wonder if Bob and Kim really didn't know about that twist. Bob seemed genuinely excited and surprised when he picked up Jillian for a hug, but I just question how "real" reality shows are done. Regardless, it's fun to watch all three teams compete face-to-face now, and it should be interesting to see how the challenges will play out. Who knew it would take 8,000 jumping jacks to burn off a pint of ice cream? And that a 22-ounce milkshake had more calories than a double bacon cheeseburger? I certainly enjoyed the trivia going out of commercial breaks and all the healthy eating tips the trainers provide. You gotta love a show that entertains and educates. And occasionally makes you cry. I knew it was bound to happen soon enough. For me it was the moment that Patty broke down in tears when she completed her workout and Bob kept repeating, "How proud are you? How proud are you?" It's just amazing to see how good people can feel about themselves when they push themselves and to see how much support they get. I also thought it was really sweet of Bob to sit down with Amy, who wasn't even on his team, and encourage her to keep going. While Kim and Jillian have more of a tougher mental approach in their workout regimens (like Jillian yelling "kick her hard and make her cry!"), it's really nice to know all three of the trainers truly care about these contestants. When it came down to sending home a member of the losing red team for the second week in a row, I'm surprised no one voted for Amy, who had a bit of a bad attitude in the gym and even walked out on the last-chance workout. It's always sad to see someone go when they haven't reached their goals yet, but I'm happy to hear Lezlye continued her success and lost 55 pounds at home. Thanks to everyone for sharing your personal weight-loss stories and to all the other comments about the show. Keep them coming!
