Responding to the New York Times Article regarding #thebiggesloser contestants. Couldn't be prouder to be a part of The Biggest Loser Family today. The system worked for me and has continued to work the last 5 years. It has been a challenge, just like JD Roth said it would be, but I am so proud of what I have done and become! Loved what he had to say about it on GMA this morning. After recent reports of contestants being worse off after gaining the weight back. I appreciated what JD said about the contestants that have kept there weight in a healthy range. Usually no one wants to ask us because it's not as juicy of a story. Biggest Loser educated me on nutrition, exercise and the ins and outs of my own body. This was something I wasn't able to grasp on my own. The show showed me how to fight again for the things that were the most important to me and that fight started with my health. It has paid off for me in EVERY aspect of my life. To all the people and crew that work on #thebiggestloser in the wake of yesterday's New York Times article, I still and will ALWAYS be grateful for what you did for me and will walk the truth of my own choices in health and fitness!! By the way, my metabolism was damaged for years before I stepped foot on the ranch from my own doing. The "research" that just came out that everyone is discussing doesn't take that into consideration at all! I don't place blame on anything for my own adult choices weather I have to work harder than others or not!! I hope all of the contestants find their way, this is just my experience that I have worked very hard for for the last 5 years. I won't let science or ANYONE tell me what my metabolism should or shouldn't be. I have more faith than that. God has brought me this far and all he asks of me is to do my part so he can do his. To feed my body the right nutrition as much as possible and to move everyday. Nothing extreme or crazy just living a healthier more balanced life and love the life he always intended for me. What do you think?
