Gina may have had a rough few days on the show, but it all pays off in this week’s episode “Tough Love,” where everyone raced to not only lose weight, but also win a special surprise.
to win visit from husband
In this week’s episode, we go to individuals, a goal I had set for myself from the beginning. “Hot damn!” I tell Alison Sweeney. Talk about a hot mess! Now I am really stepping out of my box… into all three trainers’ boxes.
Before we get to the last-chance workout and another epic Gina meltdown, let’s celebrate the love that superstar Danni showed to both Mike and me.
The challenge this week was to race to a moving spotlight. The last man — lady in this case — standing wins not only a 24-hour visit from a loved one, but also a 24-hour visit to give away. Danni certainly spread the love by giving both prizes away!
Getting to spend time on the ranch with my amazing husband was just the medicine I needed to get me to the finish line. Plus, I can actually wear my wedding ring now; that feels amazing! Little did I know my inner self had some more things to sort out in order for me to really reach the finish line.
You see, throughout this journey and throughout my life I have struggled with fear and worry. As our last-chance workout begins, I am overcome with fear and doubt. I want to believe I can do this; I’m doing this! I am the biggest loser on the ranch — and the oldest. But those old feelings resurface again. Dolvett tells me, “You have nothing to worry about except the stuff you create in your head!” His words encourage and inspire me, and I go on to lose another nine pounds, proving that hard work, sweat and, yes, even tears can get the job done. I am still the biggest loser on the ranch, with my weight now at 184 pounds.
I encourage you to stay tuned and see how this story, my story, and the stories of my fellow contestants play out. You never know, our stories might just be similar to yours.
Until next week, I remain… #teamgina #bl14 #team purple #hotmess #livelifeoutloud
