My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
I’m 40 – it’s time for me to get a life beyond being a mother, co-worker and friend; to meet someone nice and forge a relationship and to be able to travel and share my life experiences with a great guy.

I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
My 40th (birthday) was approaching and I realised now was the time to stop making excuses and lose weight.

I hope to lose weight but gain:
My sexy back!

The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?):
Damien; even at a big weight he never gave up, not once.

The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
The opportunity to learn from others’ experiences and to just concentrate on me and my goals to achieve a new way of life.

I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Allowing myself to accept that I can change and that any challenge put before me is just that – a challenge for me to push the boundaries

I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
Being away from my kids, family and friends (yet knowing that I can become a better, fitter, more energetic mum and friend.)

My biggest weakness is:
Not realising what I am truly capable of.

Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
A stubborn mindset (I don’t believe in myself enough).

The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
I’m witty, loving, determined, stubborn, strong, gentle and emotional- and there are better things to come!

I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
I’m driven, I want and I can taste it!

Some things I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I lose the weight will be to:
Extreme sports; Rock climbing; White water rafting and Bungie jumping.
