I can't even begin to count the ways "The Biggest Loser" has changed my life! My first book, "Matt Hoover's Guide to Life, Love, and Losing Weight," is going to be released next week and I recently co-founded BestLifeDesign.com. And most importantly, I met my wife Suzy on the show and we now have two beautiful boys, Rex and Jax. I have the life today that I used to think you could only read about. I think the best lesson I took from the ranch is that it's never too late to make changes in your life. Healthy eating and daily exercise are routine for us now and we make exercise a family activity. Exercise doesn't have to be hours at the gym; it can be as simple as a walk around the block with your kids! We don't really monitor our weight anymore. We spent the whole year after the show obsessing about the scale. Today we stay active and help keep each other in check. As far as weight gain goes, I did have a spurt where I put some back on. I felt like it was OK because I had still kept off over 100 pounds. The problem with that type of thinking is that you may give yourself a false sense of security. Bells went off for me when I saw myself on an interview with Larry King. When I saw what I actually looked like on television I had a freak-out. I knew I had to get back to work. Gaining some weight isn't that big of a deal, but not addressing it immediately is when you run the risk of things getting out of hand. I also went out and got a personal trainer. I realized that I needed someone coaching me.
