Jillian isn't convinced that Ada is totally in a good place, because she's still looking to others for her self-worth. And so, Dr. Phillian gets to take one more crack at her. Jillian asks Ada if she's going to pull herself up only to sail back down by shutting herself down. Ada says she realizes this, and is working on it, and doesn't want to talk about this right now. Jillian points out that the time to Dr. Phillianize is short. Ada says she's coming up with a plan, and can't just make a switch because she's been like this for 27 years. She's trying to accept her situation, and doesn't know what else there is to do. Jillian tells her that what she's doing, which is a lot of whining "I don't know," isn't good enough. Ada wonders how she'll know what's good enough if she isn't in the situation where she'll feel all the painful crap. Jillian says that you feel it inside if you're good enough for you. Finally, Ada has a little breakthrough and says that her parents won't be satisfied with anything -- with her, or themselves, period. Jillian asks when it's good enough, and Ada says that she has to feel like it's good enough. Well, finally. While Jillian and Ada share this tender moment, Bob screams in the background. Ada realizes that seeking validation and approval from people who might not be able to give it to her could set herself up for failure. She needs to figure out what's good enough for her, so she can be happy with herself.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth seems to be making some progress, even though the red line has her in its sight. She gets a little panicky feeling about losing her breathing, but takes a moment and decides to go forth with everything Bob tells her to do. She seems to do a great job, and Bob tells her to open her eyes and look how far she's come. Elizabeth starts crying as she tells Bob that she'll miss him. She's scared at the idea of going home, but Bob tells her that she can do it and blow them all away at the finale.
And then, it's time for the weigh-in. The person with the lowest percentage of weight loss will fall below the red line, and be immediately eliminated. Two others will fall below the yellow line, and one of those will be voted out. Ada, who has a one-pound advantage, is first on the scale. She goes from 185 pounds to 179, for a loss of 6 pounds. At her size, I think that's not so bad, particularly with the bonus pound. At this point, though, there's no telling. Ada has lost 79 pounds so far in the competition, and her total percentage lost this week is 3.78%. Elizabeth is next. She goes from 196 pounds to 192, for a loss of 4 pounds or 2.04%. It's not what she expected, particularly after working so hard all week. It also will probably put her in danger. Elizabeth has lost 52 pounds altogether.
