Jessica tells us that it will be hard to go home, where she gained all her weight in the first place, especially while not having Ramon by her side. She has to fend for herself, and is scared. We catch up with Jessica today. When she first got to campus, she weighed 254 pounds, and today she weighs 185. She looks great, and has gone from a size 22 to a size 10. And I'm sorry, but where do these people shop that you can fit into a size 10 at 185 pounds? Oh, Pittsburgh, I guess. I'll have to hit up more malls when I head home for Thanksgiving. Anyway, I have apparently forgotten that Jessica is from the 'Burgh, and when she finds herself in need of extra support she goes to the toughest guys she knows -- the Pittsburgh Steelers! Woo! She works out with cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Larry Foote, and goes through their off-day running drills. It's super cute, and the Steelers are awesome! Suck it, Patriots! Jessica gets an honorary helmet and football for her efforts, and is determined to win the marathon and a spot as a finalist.
Next week: Ramon is super-pissed at his teammates, and only one person's weight will count for their team!
Potes ate one Reese's Cup, one mini Twix, and one mini Kit Kat during the course of her recapping. That's not so bad, right? Support her argument by tweeting @traciepotes or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
