Stacy loved this week's workout. Joe's comments? Not so much.

Oct 11, 20100

I happen to think cankles are very funny. I mean just the word cankle and how it sounds is funny. When you say it, a smile is bound to come to your face. A lot of people have asked me if I got upset about Joe's "comments," and I think when it comes to Joe you really have to treat him like a child. If a toddler called you a poo poo face would you get mad? Didn't think so.

Now onto our amazing workout with the Pussycat Dolls. This has been my favorite workout so far during this program. Partly because I love to dance and partly because dancing with Bryan is probably the funniest thing I have been able to be a part of.

Oh wait, that's right I took my shirt off on national television. It was probably the scariest thing I have ever done next to killing a huge spider in the shower. I'm of the school you fake it till you make it, and I wanted to show everyone there that I am a competitor even if it makes me uncomfortable. I'm surprised that during this process there seems to be a lot of negativity towards me, so I hope that with winning this challenge things will start to shift.

Last but not least I want to talk about my favorite part of this episode -- Jackie and Joe's double date. I wonder if when he opens his mouth it smells like the BS he's spewing. I think I can speak for a lot of women who would take a personality over a "good looking" guy. Of course Joe can't find true love when he's combing the bar at last call looking for girls that are drunk enough to be deemed legally "unconscious" and asks the awake ones questions like, "When did you realize that you were smarter than your parents." He's still single? Color me shocked.

So what did we learn this week? Upper arm workouts are the quickest way to get results. Mindful eating and not cheating=good numbers on the scale. I now know why all those PCD girls have amazing bodies, because that workout is insane (there is a DVD which I highly recommend getting). Avoid the bars around 1:30 so you won't get asked moronic questions from douchbags. Nothing keeps a girl away from a free facial; even if it means she has to take her shirt off.

Way to go Stacey! You are on your way! I am so happy for you. I wonder why Joe continually picks you out to say negative things about. Just wondering if maybe he has a little "love/hate crush"? You know what our Mom's always said, "you always hurt the one you love". Maybe that why is is being to mean and rude to you. He really is a jerk. Typical short man. He, more than anyone on the entire show needs not only a physical makeover, but a personality makeover. He just does not seem like a nice person, at all. I know I would not be friends with him. Keep up the good work! You are a beautiful person inside and out.

Joe's cankle comment was hurtful, rude, idiotic, and completely not funny! He's right about one thing, not everyone gets his sense of humor. This comment certainly wasn't funny to me as I also have the dreaded cankle problem, and it has nothing to do with weight whatsoever! There's nothing you can do about genetics. Please, Joe, grow up! If you don't, you'll never get anything but the unconsious girls at closing time. I think you're long past your college days.

you go girl-- dont let Joe, or the Austrlian chicks comments effect you!!! Why they think that they have the right to make comments totally bewilders me-- are they not on the same show and in major need of losing weight-- talk about glass houses-- and may joe never get "laid" again!! cause 1990 is calling for his pickup lines back and his clothes!!!

Once you put your mind to it, you can definitely lose weight and as a result, find a man. You seemed to have good energy and ambition during the dance off. I hope that you keep it up. A good personality only goes so far. Any single lady can attest to that. I'm not single so I wouldn't know.

You are far too sensitive about Joe's comments. I never hear you jaw back at Nikki. If you laughed at yourself, you probably would have enjoyed the process more. It's apparent that Nikki is enjoying the process and can laugh at herself along the way.

A confident person can clearly dish it out AND take it. It's evident that you're still working on your confidence. If you're a comedian, you should be able to take jabs and come back with better ones instead of man-hating and bashing Joe. He's pretty darn funny...and this is coming from a woman.

Lay off the cupcakes and keep working out. You can do it. Eye on the prize.

Good luck with the continued weight loss.

Good job dancing last night. But I thought that Shay should have won the dance contest, sorry. Keep up the good work.

Hey mngirl, 90% of the horrible stuff Joe said wasn't to Stacy's face, it was to a confessional camera. So I'm guess most of it was a surprise to her.

I wish you all the best however I think you need to take a look "inward" as well. You spend a lot of your time on this blog just ripping on Joe. Sure, he may deserve it but at least he insults you in person and to your face rather than hiding behind a website. You're just as bad as him so get off your high horse.

You rocked on last night's episode! I thought you looked fantastic dancing and you totally deserved the win! Big Congrats! As far as Joe, he is a disgusting pig. Hopefully as he views himself on tv, he will realize how ugly his personality really is and change for the better. He isn't good looking at all so his comments just make him look needy, immature and that he can't be in social situations. Enough about him tho, bandwidth shouldn't be wasted. I just wanted to say good luck on your journey! I have been on the same journey and have just lost 30 pds and discovered exercise. I can already see a change in your body just from the few episodes! Good luck!!

Hey girl! Not even sure if you actually read these or not, but if you do... I want to say how proud I am of you!!! Taking your shirt off is huge! I was a little on edge to do it in my all women's zumba class, but that pails in comparison to national tv! So here are my thought on the negative things said to you...

1) Joe is a man... Men think like men. He comes off as a huge jerk... unfortunately, I use to date guys like Joe... Fat or skinny they were my type made my laugh then put me down... He'll get his. 2) Nikki is abrasive... She should be more understanding... Please listen to me when I say... She wishes she was as brave as you! To Be proud of your new shape is something she hasn't shown yet!

I love you!!!! Keep your head and heart up girl!!!

Good job winning! Joe is just rude, your all in this together, and there is no need for rude comments, it just makes a person unattractive. Yes, Jeana does seem like a sweet person, and I have'nt heard her say one negative thing about anyone. Your doing great, I've enjoyed watching the show, keep up the good work!
