I definitely am not a good long term example of "The Biggest Loser" lifestyle, but I did learn the tools of being healthy. The best lesson I took away from the ranch was writing down everything I eat. I still need to lose weight, and when I write down everything I eat, I do much better. I do monitor my weight. I've watched it go UP since I left the ranch! As I have gained weight I have thought about the hard work I put in and the time I spent away from my loved ones. I still want to do all I can to be the healthiest I can be. It's tough to get away from body issues that you have had your whole life, though. I recently played the male lead in a film called "disFIGURED" (www.disfiguredmovie.com) which features different people with different body types and how these people deal with their individual body issues. We all have issues when it comes to our outward appearance, but how we deal with those issues is what sets us apart. Winning "The Biggest Loser" definitely changed my life. It helped me realize the great things I am capable of. The aftermath of being the original "Biggest Loser" has been a struggle for me though, for every pound I do gain I'm sure I beat myself up a little more than somebody else might. In the end it was a life experience I wouldn't trade for the world!
