Diva - I agree about Ali. She's done amazing but I also can relate to her emotional struggle. Any time she has a break down, I bawl too because her words could be coming out of my mouth!

Thanks. It makes it harder for the women, but I'm hoping one of them does take it!

That's how I feel too. I just don't know what to do to tap into this and "fix" it. I don't know anyone here or have any friends close. I've grown apart from my friend's back home and my best friend is skinny and has never been fat a day in her life. For the past 10 years I have isolated myself from all my family, friends and even the world. But tonight, it came to me. The exact moment 11 yrs ago when I gave up on Roni and all her dreams and died on the inside.

Wow...I need a moment.....

Anybody else notice how Ali, and maybe Kelly, I'm not sure, were wearing sweatshirts during their final workouts? Makes me wonder how much of those final pounds were the result of dehydration and not exercise and nutrition.

Regardless, Ali looked freakin amazing at the weigh-in.

Default WHOOO HOOO! The girls ROCK!

I too, was SOOO excited the girls did so well...I agree, obviously they had a bit more time after their return from Australia to put up those kinds of numbers, but I am sure they are excited too and working very hard! All of them did great, but I am very, very pleased to see Ali and Kelly in there for the finale! Ali looks like she is at the finale already...her legs are tiny and thighs are not touching (wouldn't that feel amazing!?) and the changes in Kelly are just remarkable, her confidence and spirit are being released from under the "fat suit" so to speak.

Looking forward to the big finish...and I am extremely inspired myself! I feel like hopping on the treadmill again and it's 10:40 at night! LOL.

Myspace pages, many of the contestants have them, you can find many others from their friends area...here are some links:

Oh gosh, what an episode last night!
I could not believe that Roger lost 12 pounds (or something like that) and I thought the girls are doomed, they can't beat that. Oh my - could I have been more wrong?
When Ali stood on the scale, she looked incredible - I swear she was the hottest thing on the planet at that moment. And when Kelly lost 13 pounds, I started to cry (all those episodes of watching Mark must have rubbed off on me ).
Yay! Kelly FINALLY spat into her proverbial palms and started to FIGHT.
I felt like I was slightly stoned during the whole episode, I will really hate for this season to be over.

Tough job with the voting. I don't know who I would have voted off - probably Roger, because he has more weight to lose than Mark. Although Mark looked too thin yesterday, especially in the face. But Mark will milk it to the last drop even if he ends up looking like Tom Hanks in the final moments of Philadelphia.
Kelly has a chance to be TBL, but I don't know if she has the spirit (hopefully she does now). I don't know how much more can Ali lose?

Anyway, I will be happy if either girl wins. GO GIRLS, GO!!!!

Here you go. I accidentaly deleted it yesterday, thankfully it was still in the recycle bin.

I just don't see where Ali can pull 21 more pounds off her tiny little body. Or where Mark could get another 12 pounds from. Kelly, yes, I can see being able to easily lose up to another 45 pounds, because we weigh almost the same thing as of last night. And I know I could stand to lose 45 pounds. Roger maybe could lose the 39 poounds, but I just don't think he'd look healthy.

Oh, Roni!!! BIG HUG!!!!!

If we all want a woman to win TBL this year I think we all need to vote for Mark.

With regard to dehydration, etc . . . I kind of think that's why Mark's been so emotional. Dehydration messes with your head.

I didn't think Mark looked healthy at all at the end of the show. I was quite sad about it.

I could have written that myself. Eight years ago I moved to Pensacola and gave up everything for a job I hated. Then I married DH and found a new job, both of which I love, and they have become my whole life. I realize now that it's okay to be selfish and want something for myself. That's what 3fc has become for me, my support system, and my sanity, sometimes my insanity. So remember that we're here for you. (And if you want to move to Pensacola, I'd be happy to make you my RL BFF )

If Kelly can pull up her bootstraps and dig deep...I know she can do this. I want her to win. Ali and Mark are there they can't do much more. I've been rooting for Roger but sorry gotta vote for Mark. LOL we are playing the game just like them. I wonder how many people won't vote for Mark just because they don't like him? Can you vote more than once?
