Kimmy tells us that one of the most difficult parts of this journey has been her separation from her husband and her family, but she's learned something abut conquering fears. In twelve weeks, she's turned her whole life around and is a stronger person. The next time we see Kimmy, this cowgirl will grab the bull by the horns and not let anything hold her back. She will be made of clichÃ©s, and also have a bird in the hand! We catch up with Kimmy at home. She started at 219 pounds, and now weighs 154. That's 65 pounds that she is thrilled to have lost. Kimmy was sure that she wanted to sacrifice herself so that Megan could stay on the show, and now they keep in contact via snail mail. Kimmy has started volunteering at a therapeutic horsemanship program, which seems like a very worthwhile endeavor. In other news, Kimmy and her husband Tom seem wildly in love, so there's probably little chance that he will start calling her by her new nickname, "Death Lei." Kimmy hopes to one day open and run her own therapeutic horsemanship facility close to home.
Next week: For every pound lost, the contestants get a big cash prize!
