MySpace: Laura (Warning: You may go blind.)
In LauraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s family thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an old saying: Ã¢â‚¬Ëœlive to eatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. After all, during LauraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 21 years, her parents have always owned a restaurant or eatery. The attractive and charming youngster admits to being spoilt as a kid and taking full advantage of the fine Italian meals on offer.
Her diet became so self-indulgent that she skipped the salads and went straight for the pastas, sharing a frightening weight problem with her father, Ã¢â‚¬ËœBig JoeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. Meanwhile, her two sisters applied the effort and discipline required, maintaining healthy bodies. It was only when her dad suffered two strokes and became a diabetic that Laura realised her life might be heading in the same direction.
Determined to reverse the trend, Laura is ready to become an inspiration to her father, who continues to battle obesity. By surviving the demanding competition and becoming one of The Biggest LoserÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s many success stories, Laura could be the perfect role model for her ailing dad.
