Rebecca Goes Home on The Biggest Loser

Name: Rebecca
Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa
Occupation: Nanny/Student
Favorite cheat food: Pizza (with ranch dressing)
Goal for 2010: To be the woman I have always wanted to be both inside and out!
Starting weight: 279
Elimination weight: 206 NSD: What was your big turning point-either during the show or before that made you realize you needed to lose the weight?
When I could no longer fit comfortably in regular chairs!And then, I broke one! It was the worst feeling and I knew I had to change. NSD: What is one thing you wish you had known before going on The Biggest Loser?
That it really is 100 times harder than it looks on tv! NSD: If you could have done one thing differently during the show, what would it be?
I wouldn't change a thing because I believe it all happens for a reason and maybe I wouldn't be where I am now. I am loving my new life! NSD: What was the hardest thing to adapt to while being on the ranch?
There are people around all the time! And, I hate being told what to do! NSD: What is one thing that keeps you motivated?
I envision that fit, happy, skinny girl at the end of this tunnel.

NSD: What is your favorite workout?
I love one-on-one's with the trainers because they push you so much farther than you would ever dream! NSD: What's the best advice Bob or Jillian has given you?
Don't be afraid to fail because really what's the worst that could happen? At least you tried! NSD: What is your favorite meal or snack?
I love a great piece of orange roughy with wasabi mustard on it and a huge side of my veggie stirfry! Mmm... makes me hungry just thinking about it!

NSD: What happens behind the scenes of the show that no one would know from watching it?
There is a lot of hurry up and wait. And, you have to balance your time and workouts accordingly! It's a lot tougher than people think it is, making a tv show is a full time job! NSD: What did you do for fun while you were on the ranch?
I went for walks with Daniel, Shay and Amanda. It was technically working out but we talked and goofed around which made me smile! That and late-night shirtless (with training bra!) or what we called "naked spinning." It was just an emotional outlet for a bunch of us (Daniel, Shay, Antoine, Amanda,Sean, Abby and myself) just to listen to great music and burn calories!
