“Biggest Loser” Rebecca on Jay Leno (VIDEO)
Pretty soon I’m going to have to stop watching The Biggest Loser because they’ll all be skinner than I am. But I can’t take my eyes off Rebecca Meyer, who was eliminated, but proved on The Jay Leno Show last night that she’s clearly won her battle all the same. Check out the video:
“It’s about weight loss, it’s not about being The Biggest Loser for me. It’s about getting my life back.” That’s the thing about The Biggest Loser; as much the monetary prize is a significant motivator, all of the contestants who are able to lose weight and become healthier really do win. Personally, I think the show would be a lot more entertaining if they spent more time on challenges and exercise and nutrition and less time with all the crying about who gets voted off each week.
Although Rebecca was initially very upset about being voted off the show, she channeled her anger into a very successful home program. Rebecca went from 304 pounds to 157, and now she’s rocking a teeny waist and seriously defined legs and arms.
She said she has always struggled with her weight, even as a child. To all her tormentors in high school, she says: “What up now!”
You go, Rebecca! You’re my idol.
