I’m also rooting for Jerry…I’m hoping his change this season is as drastic as Coleen’s dad’s changes were last season. Perhaps having the same name will help? LOL

Jerry, you are such an inspiration. My heart went out to you during the weigh in and elimination. The way that you handled the situation was amazing and demonstrates what a truly amazing person you are. I was so happy to see your follow-up and how well you are doing. I can’t wait to see your continued success.

You’re such an inspiration! So is your wife!

Ruth R says:

Hi Jerry,
You looked super fantastic yesterday! I am amazed how much you were able to accomplish in the time you had, especially with your being at home for most of the competition! You are a true inspiration to people of every age struggling with their weight. Congratulations on a job well done!

Jan C says:

Congratulations from all the “Block” Heads!!!

Good Job Jerry!!
You worked so hard and the pay off is all yours!! 🙂

Terri R says:

You and Estella were my faves from day 1, and so I am thrilled that you put the “pedal to the metal” and did so well on your weight loss! This had to be difficult at best considering your health problems. Winning the at-home prize may be great for you, but it is the best thing EVER to happen to all the seniors out there, who never even thought they could aspire to turn their lives around and get fit and healthy again. Super kudos to you for doing it!!!!

kim says:

Jerry….I want to know how you did this while you were at home??? What was your diet plan…what was your work out plan? You have given me hope…if you can do this at your age, from home…maybe I can too? Help me learn how you did it please!!!!

You look incredible!!!
