Winning "The Biggest Loser" allowed me to regain the confidence to live the life I know I was meant to live! It changed my career; now I'm the spokesperson for 24 Hour Fitness and an ambassador for BiggestLoserClub.com which gives me the opportunity to continue to stay healthy and to interact face-to-face with people who fight the same battle I do every day. The best lesson I took away from the ranch was to stop acting like a child. From Bob, I learned how to stop stubbornly choosing only what would give me immediate gratification. From Jillian, I learned that I could own my greatness without taking anything away from someone else's light; that by actually believing in myself and voicing my goals, I could be even more capable of supporting others' journeys. The longest lasting changes I have made that really stuck are tracking my calories in/calories out, living consciously, and being more present in my day-to-day activities. I do monitor my weight by putting on my "skinny jeans" that I wore during the finale! I also pay attention to my energy level and know when it's time to check in with the scale. When I start to gain weight, the first thing I do is check my level of intensity (target heart rate) of exercise. If I'm eating the same way but gaining weight, I know it's time to step it up a notch at the gym so that my body is working for me at an optimum level.
