Did They Keep the Weight Off?

Prior to the start of Season 4 a special episode was shown revisiting past contestants to see if they kept the weight off. Only Andrea and Kelly Mac were featured, but on the official website, Aaron was also interviewed.

Andrea, who lost 59 pounds in the competition, lost another 5 pounds to bring her current weight to 151. This had made her the only contestant featured to actually maintain her weight loss.

Kelly Mac gained 9 pounds since the Season One finale to bring her weight to 160 pounds.

Aaron, who was eliminated in the third week and losing 25 of his 61 pounds at home, gained 24 pounds to bring his weight back to 224, only one pound less than when he left the ranch.
