Selena has been bullied her entire life and is tired of the taunts. She wants to lose weight, gain confidence, make new friends and learn how to be healthy. She sees couples holding hands and dreams of walking down the street with her own boyfriend one day.
Selena is looking forward to the everyday lessons she will gain from The Biggest Loser
so she can rid herself of the bad habit of eating too much of the wrong food. She can’t wait to meet new people and have fun with the various challenges that her trainer Tiffiny has in store!
Don’t think Selena’s disability of being deaf will interfere with her chances of becoming the next Biggest Loser – she is one tough cookie with a wicked sense of humour and is determined to be an inspiration to disabled people!
Selena has been overweight since she was a child, she runs out of breath easily and her entire body gets sore from too much movement. She draws inspiration from Sarah Moon from The Biggest Loser in season six. “Sarah showed Australia that no matter how hard life can push you down, just fight back and you can achieve anything.”
For Selena the toughest part of being on The Biggest Loser will be the lack of contact with her friends and family, in particular her sister who means the world to Selena. She is preparing herself for the journey by learning to trust and believe in herself and the people around her.
Her hobbies include reading, writing, cooking and singing.
My reason for applying for The Biggest Loser:
To lose weight and gain confidence and learn how to be healthy.
I first realised I was overweight and need help when:
I would run out of breath and my body was sore. I always knew that I needed to lose weight because I’ve been big ever since I was a little girl.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
Confidence, friends and the everyday lessons I will learn from the experience.
A past contestant I’ve found inspiring is:
Sarah Moon – she showed that no matter how life puts you down just fight back and you’ll achieve anything.
The best part of being on The Biggest Loser is:
Meeting new people, losing weight and having fun.
I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Learning to trust and believe in myself and those around me.
I think the most difficult part of being on The Biggest Loser will be:
No contact with friends and family, the exercise and the challenges.
My biggest weakness is:
My love for food.
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Eating too much and not eating the right food.
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is:
Just because I have a disability doesn’t mean I can’t achieve my goals and dreams.
I think I will win The Biggest Loser because:
I have the determination, a wicked sense of humour and I’m different.
One thing I have never done because I was overweight I will do once I lose the weight is:
Bungee jumping and surviving!
