Elimination room! Michael does not get a vote. The Red Team starts off by voting for Miggy, because she's more abrasive and confrontational than Migdalia. Miggy thinks that Melissa doesn't like to hear the truth, and Migdalia points out that Melissa should try looking in the mirror. Everyone frankly wishes that they could vote both of these ladies off -- they're scared to death. The Orange Team votes for Migdalia, as does the Pink Team, as does the Purple Team. The Gray Team, however, votes to send home Miggy. After Migdalia says her mom needs it more than she does, the Gray Team notes that they wish she would have said that in the first place instead of just being all sulky and rotten. And then John also votes to send home Miggy! It's tied. It all comes down to the Black Team. They vote for Migdalia. That was more dramatic than expected! Migdalia hugs her mom and leaves without saying goodbye to anyone else.
Migdalia says that her mom gave her everything she could in her life, and there's no doubt in her mind that Miggy needs to be there. She's ready to move on, and wonders why she'd stay if someone else needs the help. Migdalia is proud of what she's accomplished, and is happy with herself. This is a positive change. Migdalia also says that she's learned a little bit about how to deal with her issues, and opened a little bit, but it's still a work in progress. Next time we see her she's going to be a 140-pound sexy mami. Migdalia started The Biggest Loser at 265, and today weighs 219. She gained about 10 pounds when she first got home, in part because of the stress of her husband leaving. It's been hard on her kids as well. After he left, however, she put herself together and is now back in the game. We see her working out at the gym, and she says she started loving herself again. She also has a good support system, including the nice people at her gym. Migdalia plans on running a marathon with her husband when he returns from Afghanistan.
Next week: Either the Blue or Yellow Team comes back! And someone needs an ambulance. There's no deliberation at the weigh-in, which may or may not be related.
