My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
To regain my health again; to stop people from teasing me; to gain respect from people for being myself not for what I look like and because it is something I have wanted to do for ages.
I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
I have always known ever since primary school that I was overweight; the children used to tease me everyday and I had to hide.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
My life; respect from other people and not have young children making comments when I walk past.
The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?):
Kimberlie; she was around the same weight as me and for some reason I looked up to her for the person she was and the way she stood for what she wanted.
The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
Proving to myself and others I can do this.
I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Thinking positive and trying to do and complete everything thrown at me during this whole journey.
I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
Facing my fears and being away from my family and friends.
My biggest weakness is:
When people tease or judge me, I give in and don’t stop them.
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Eating when I don’t want or need to and not being motivated.
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
I am a strong minded person that wants to gain the respect of others
I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
I am going to be myself and nothing but!
One thing I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I loose the weight will be to:
To get my dad to teach me to surf.
