My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
To lose a whole lot of weight; learn to exercise and eat properly and to return to my former self of yesteryear.
I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
I couldn’t fit into standard size clothes and started struggling to do things that I used to find easy.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
My confidence back and gain the courage to get the weight off and keep it off.
The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?):
Big Wal; he lost a heap of weight through determination and even when he put some weight back on he got back into it and did it again.
The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
Learning the how’s and why’s of losing weight and keeping it off. Also, to make new friends who are fighting the same fight.
Thinking of all the reasons why I need to do this:
To regain my confidence; for my health; for my family and my friends that supported me through tough times and to increase my longevity.
I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
The time I spend away from family and friends who I see on a regular basis.
My biggest weakness is:
Giving in too easily and making excuses for not eating properly and for not exercising.
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Laziness, lack of energy and indulging in bad food.
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
I’m determined more than ever to shake off my excess weight and keep it off.
I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
I’m like Pat BenatarÃ¢â‚¬Â¦’I'm all fired up!’ And because I will survive the training and lose the most weight.
One thing I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I loose the weight will be to:
Go scuba diving.
