"It's suck it up and getting out of your comfort zone," Kevin Smyth said.
A plan is in place: Four months to take off about 40 pounds and now at week six and plateau has set in.
"When we start getting into the high end cardio stuff for a length of time I feel like my body is falling apart," said Nicole.
Which can put Nicole in tears and Kevin to the true test.
"Part of me wants to back off and let her rest a little bit but, I actually know it's just getting through these parts where these tears now are going to be such joy for her in the future," added Kevin.
The problem is injuries are developing which he needs to work around and she needs to deal with..
"I just want a piece of chocolate cake," said Nicole.
But, with the weigh in comes the pay off.
195 she's down 15 -- right on track!
It's week 10 and the mission gains momentum.
"Awesome. Actually my energy is thorough the roof, my day to day stamina is through the roof," said Nicole.
So much she'd rather pass on the warm up.
Now her strength and confidence is exploding.
"So I thought I was going to be more sore yesterday after my 80 pound presses -- I wasn't," said Nicole.
While she wants to power through, worried about another plateau Kevin stresses patience is key.
Instead weight or resistance training is the focus. Build the muscle to burn off the fat.
Soon she's down 32 pounds.
So one more month and eight more pounds to go just as the weight loss really levels off.
