My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
To change my life permanently; to lose weight; to get fit; to get back to being my former self and to be happy. I want to be able to feel confident all the time and to get out and meet new people, especially a nice guy. Also, I want to get back to playing water polo and enjoying it.
I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
I was watching Biggest Loser 2 and realised I too could do that and regain my confidence. Then, I decided to apply and since then every time I go into a clothes shop I know I made the right decision to apply.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
Confidence; pride; happiness and get a fit, healthy body and a new lifestyle to go with it!
The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?):
Definitely Munnalita; she worked so hard and really wanted to lose weight and win. She was not fake; she tried hard and also didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hide her real feelings or desires.
The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
Getting fit, healthy and happy; learning to change my lifestyle and doing it with other like minded people and getting expert advice and support while trying to achieve my goal.
I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Listening and learning; emptying my mind of all my previous life experiences and readying myself to give my all to this.
I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
Not contacting family and friends and the workouts.
My biggest weakness is:
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Eating because I am bored; eating bad foods just because they are there; not exercising enough and putting off my weight loss journey!
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m really, really determined to change my life and be the first female Biggest Loser (winner!)
I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m determined and I never give up. Because of my sporting background, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m used to hard work and I know what it involves so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to the challenge. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give 100%
One thing I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I loose the weight will be to:
To do some adventure sports such as bungee jumping and flying fox (because recently when I was on holiday I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do such adventures because I was overweight.)
