Since I won the Biggest Loser Competition at work; they asked to interview me for our company wide Wellness Newsletter:

What did you change in your life for the Biggest Loser challenge?

I had successfully been on Weight watchers for a few months when the challenge began but when I signed up for the Biggest Loser Challenge I knew I needed to push myself a little more. I became friendly with my elliptical machine, got over my fear of crunches, and had a friend design a weight routine for me.  Now I exercise 4-5 times  a week.

What do you think made you most successful?

Exercise! Exercise! Exercise!  Not only because it helps with weight loss, but because I found the more consistent I am with exercising the more energy I have and less tired I feel.   I also saw quicker changes in my body and pant sizes when I added exercise to my weight loss plan.  Feeling more energized and seeing greater changes in my body helped me stay motivated and focused.

What are you planning on doing with your winnings?

Definitely purchasing new clothing.   The thrill of your clothing getting to large tends to fade when you feel like you’re wearing parachute pants around the office.


  1. Very nice! And it's definitely time for a little shopping spree, you certainly deserve it! :)

  2. Congrats on winning the contest! Nice interview and I agree shopping for new clothes in new lower sizes is awesome!
