I have been following this season, but haven't posted yet.

John grates on my nerves. He's so cocky!! I think he will definitely have a hard time losing and maintaining when he gets back to the real world. He depends on his wife too much. He has done well though, I'll give him that much and he may surprise us. I think he looked scared when Antone lost so much and said he is ready to take on John.

Antone looks freakin' amazing. He is back to his football weight, and he will definitely keep it off imo. I think he may just win this.

I also felt bad for Becky! She looks great though and will keep it off imo. Anyone else find that she looks so much younger than her age? She is really inspiring.

Glad to see Ramone win the marathon and be back in the game. He has done awesome, and is a serious competitor now. He looks so much better since he cut his hair eh?

I know as a wife I would certainly try my darndess to lose while hubby is away so that he wouldn't look better than me when he came back ... Same with Vinny's girlfriend ... Maybe I'm shallow
haha, well hopefully once the contestants get home the wives work on losing weight, because they have to keep the same lifestyle as their husbands if they want to lose weight and stay healthy. Hopefully the wives get on board and lose weight as well.
Likes attract?

John's wife not losing is part of the whole John is in it for the competition mentality. It's all about the game, what will they do when the game is over?

Unfortunately I think John is going to be hard to beat. He has a fairly decent lead over both Antone (by % , 25 lbs) and Ramon (26 lbs) and Antone, despite his BMI being higher than Johns right now, is really muscular and I dont know if he can drop what John can drop. Antone is big enough that a "normal" BMI might not be possible for him. I think Ramon has a better shot, because he clearly still has non-muscle weight but he is going to really need to up his game.

I dont know how many weeks they are getting between marathon and finale this time. If there is enough time I could see John getting to 55% loss and that would be really really low BF for Antone.

I am thinking the same about Antone. He looks good the way he is now. But then what do I know? Others have surprised me at the finale--especially Danny a couple of seasons ago.

Oh, and Ramon didnt weigh in again did he? So he might be closer to John than I was thinking.

Sigh ... I was 100 percent Team Becky. I was so happy that she went back to work and said, "Well, I have to LIVE"

I know Vicky Vilcan was not beloved in her season, but I admired her for doing the same thing. And she's maintained since her season, too.

I want Ramon to win (even though i was team Becky as well she looks AMAZING.. hipe to look like a that in a couple of decades)- I do think John is all for the game, i really canīt stand him.

I do think Antone can lose other 15 pounds in fat percetage. Even he looks great, his BF is high so he can actually look better than that.

I spent a lot of time last night reading about past contestants and what they look like now. It was very interesting and inspiring. As to who wins this season? I vote for Antone but will be all right whoever wins. It's going to be interesting to see who wins the "at home." Several of the contestants already looked amazing. Come on Tuesday!

Lyla I just to say that is my nick name and that only thing my bro calls me he wont call me by my real name never has and guess never will lol Most people in my family and people who hang around my bro call me that lol.

As for who win I want it to be ramon or antone I dont want john to win. I ain't liked him all season. As for the at home winner I can't wait to see who wins that and see how much everyone has lost.

You know how Becky sent sunny home to win the at home prize. I was wondering this morning if she perhaps sent herself home on purpose to have a better shot at that. But there Vinny will be tough to beat.
