Ruby’s Garage Sale Brings a Reunion on Episode 3

Episode three begins with Ruby and her friends getting ready for the big garage sale. Ruby is convinced that the sale will bring in loads of money, while the rest of the crew is skeptical.

Since the discovery of the forgotten letters in episode two, Ruby’s depression is escalating and her trainers, Drew and Shazi, are having trouble getting her to the gym. In an effort to keep Ruby active, her trainers are turning the garage sale into a fitness endeavor.

Making each step count, Drew and Shazi accompany Ruby to post signs for the garage sale. The group held small weights in their hands and did lunges down the street.

Depression is ruining Ruby’s motivation to workout but she admits that it helps elevate her mood when she does. “I’m a lot happier,” she says, “I’m energetic… it changes your whole mood.”


Ruby Faces Relationship Issues and Weight Gain in Season 4 Premier

The new season of Ruby began with a spray tanning session. Ruby, confident with every pound of herself, stood naked in the kitchen while Georgia sprayed her. Seemingly happy with her overall looks, but in utter despair over the weight that she gained back, Ruby said “We gotta finish this. I gotta finish this, once and for all.”

She decided, for the first time in 12 weeks, to host a Women’s Fat Night. Ruby’s friend, Julie, commented on the struggles of dieting while on vacation. Ruby spoke out about her own traveling troubles. While on the road, she slid back into her old habits. The girls reminded her to take one day at a time, one meal at a time, even one minute at a time. She claimed that the girls couldn’t possibly know what they were talking about because none of them had ever been as big as her. Women’s Fat Night ended with these words from Ruby, “The truth is, even if I lose all the weight in the world, I think I’m gonna be alone the rest of my life… I’m never gonna be perfect to any guy.”


Shedding for the Wedding Episode 2 Recap

The second episode of Shedding for the Wedding began with a group trip to Beverly Hills where they met with their wedding planner, Brian, to discuss their wedding cakes. When the couples found out that they were going to have to taste the various cakes, some of the contestants were worried about the extra calories while others were excited about the opportunity to indulge in preparation for their weddings. Brooks and Samantha did eat some of the cake, because as Brooks said, “We can work out an extra half hour in the gym to work that little bit of cake off.” At the end of the contest, Samantha and Brooks were not the only ones to have their cake and eat it too: Taylor and Peter also chowed down on cake.

Keeping to the original cake theme of the episode, this week’s challenge was a cake walk. Each team had to carry their four-tiered cake through the mile and a half obstacle course. If they lose a tier, they get a time penalty, and the team with the longest time would lose privileges to work out with personal trainers Jennifer and Nicky. All of the teams lost at least one tier of their cake, except Laura and Austin, but their carefulness caused them to finish last. Allison and David finished first, and although they had a six minute penalty, they were the winners of the competition and their dream cake. The team the came in last with the time penalties and, therefore, lost privileges to work out with the trainers, was Team Gamers, Peter and Taylor.


The Biggest Loser Marathon in the Season 10 Episode 12 Recap

Ohhhh it’s the final four, marathon week, and more!

Everyone heads home for their “reveals.” Let me tell you, it is so weird to sit in that car and wait to reveal your new self to your family and friends. I am sure it is much different when you are going home as a final four than when you go home “eliminated,” but I think no matter how you get home it’s completely nerve-wrecking! (more…)

Makeover Week Recap for Biggest Loser Season 10 Episode 10

So this week was the ever anticipated makeover week on the Biggest Loser. It is when all the guys who have chowchillas growing on their faces get a clean shave and get a little metro and the girls get an awesome celeb touch of highlights and hotness to show so much less of themselves off to their family and friends! By week 10 most people have already had a dramatic transformation in the weight loss department so to be able to fully see it with attire and all is a confidence booster for sure.

I don’t know if you have noticed but there are few to no mirrors on the ranch. There are small mirrors in the bathrooms but it is RARE to catch a full body glimpse of yourself the entire time you are there. I was sent home the week before makeover week so I can’t fully tell you what it is like (insert tears and heavy sigh here), but from what I have heard it is amazing to be out of the sweat fest and to see what you have been working so hard on. For many it’s the first time in a long time they are shopping in “regular” sizes and are finding their body shapes are totally different. (more…)

Inspiring Letters from Home in Biggest Loser Season 10 Episode 9 Recap

OK, OK, so last week was the world series of game play and this week was literally as if the last eight weeks never happened! Whether that is good or bad I am not sure, however I must say I did enjoy watching this week without almost damaging my TV by throwing things at it and by not screaming so much that the husband had to leave the room.  It really is a true testament to the roller coaster of events and emotions that equates the journey! WELCOME TO THE BIGGEST LOSER!

The highlights for me this episode were: (more…)

Black Team Controls the Elimination in Biggest Loser Season 10 Episode 6 Recap

WOW what an episode! This week, instead of the notorious face-off week, only ONE player’s loss will count for each team! Talk about pressure! Of course the strategizing starts at the very moment that Ali gives this news to the teams. The real kicker is that the opposing team gets to pick who weighs in! That is just asking for game play. Oh don’t you just love how Ali brings her Days of our Lives drama to Biggest Loser!

At the glorious four seasons, the teams compete in a cooking challenge! I love that! I wish we could have had a cooking challenge. I love to experiment in the kitchen. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love cooking with Curtis Stone by your side? The Blue team takes the win, over the black team supported by Chef Lorena Garcia, which gives them a 10 second head start in the next challenge.

Try the Grilled Tuna with Herb Tapenade and Succotash and Salad of Green Papaya with Peanut and Grilled Shrimp prepared by the blue team. (more…)
