iVillage: What was your big turning point-either during the show or before that made you realize you needed to lose the weight?
When my personality changed because of how I felt about myself. Realizing my low self-esteem.

iVillage: What is one thing you wish you had known before going on The Biggest Loser?
How to just do what I needed to do no matter what.

iVillage: Did you think it’s harder or easier to be on the show with a family member as a teammate as opposed to competing by yourself?
Family member I would assume, but I don't know.

iVillage: If you could have done one thing differently during the show, what would it be?
Eaten more calories on the ranch. It would have kept me there longer.

iVillage: What's the hardest thing to adapt to while living on the ranch?
The cutthroat [attitude] of gamers

iVillage: What is one thing that keeps you motivated when you don't feel like working out or you want to eat junk food?
[My] results thus far. Not wanting to go back to where I was before this.

iVillage: What is your favorite workout?
Street striding

iVillage: What is your favorite meal or snack?
Pop chips and hummus

iVillage: What's something viewers at home wouldn't know from watching the show?
How much goes into the show. How much of a mental and emotional journey it is.
