Last night we had the opportunity to go see the Purple Team once again. If you remember, I got to hang out with them in their backyard while filming the first episode.
Stephanie put a call out on her handy Facebook page once again to let us all know that she was back in town for a bit (she lives in LA), and we had the opportunity to come see her and her mother at the 24 hour fitness in Moraga.I guess we all thought that we were going to be in a room or have the volume on in the gym, but instead, we had to hop on treadmills, plug in headphones and watch on the TV screens in the gym. Fitting and appropriate I guess.
It was fun for me as well, as a few of my sorority sisters who live in the Bay Area actually came this time too. There weren’t a ton of folks, just a few who came out to say hey and check on progress, but it was nice to see the girls as well. I haven’t seen them in years.
Little did I know that we had this opportunity to come see the Purple Team because it was unfortunately Patti’s last night on the show.
I will say that Patti looks amazing. She has spent these past months at home doing it on her own, and has still managed to take 50 pounds off, and she has 4 more months to work on herself till the finale. She is going to look AMAZING.
What little I can say about Stephanie, is that she looks killer. We couldn’t take photos of her, because we aren’t supposed to know when or if she has gotten eliminated yet. She is doing GREAT, and her change is remarkable. Especially because this was the episode where they do their health assessment. It was pretty surreal watching the “old” Patti and Stephanie on television at the 24 hour fitness, while the “new” ones were walking on treadmills watching themselves.
I think that another party is in the works as soon as the show is finished and the finale has happened. This way she can answer all our questions. So cool to be on this journey with her, albeit from my couch every Tuesday.
