Stroked shape reveal animation

I'm trying to figure out how to this text animation was made. In particular, I'm having trouble figuring out how the strokes were done.

The tricky part is that I want the letters to be closed shapes throughout the animation. I tried applying a swipe effect, but the swipe creates open shapes. The same thing will happen if I create my own masks.

I also tried the text stroke animations, but they only seem to animate the stroke in one direction, whereas I want to stroke to move out from a single point, in both directions and in a sweeping motion.

I've also tried various types of keyframe/mask interpolation, without any luck. In short, I'm really struggling with this one. And I would GREATLY appreciate any suggestions or ideas.

I am also including a still image, which might shed more light on how it was made.
