Jeremy Britt Wins Biggest Loser Season 13
By Dani M. Stone
Jeremy Britt admits he’s been heavy most of his life but he has always maintained an active lifestyle to offset his genetic predisposition. In the past he’s been involved in many sports claiming “I’m not the best at anything but I’m pretty good at just about everything that I try. . . well, besides working out.” Always known as the class clown and social comedian, Jeremy uses humor to deflect any comments about his weight, often bringing up the subject first before someone has the chance to cut him down. Jeremy landed a spot on Biggest Loser 13 with a walk-in casting call and quickly recruited his older sister Conda Britt to join him on the ranch.
Even though Jeremy, 22, had grown accustomed to being the “heavy kid” he was starting to see serious health-related issues in his family, including the death of his grandmother. He knew he needed to make a drastic change in his life. He describes his “a-ha moment” as the day he declined an invitation from a friend to go to the beach. He just couldn’t bear to take his shirt off in public. At 389 pounds, even hobbies he previously enjoyed, like golf, were becoming cumbersome. He still liked to play but only if it was a course that allowed carts.
Jeremy’s smile is infectious and his spirit is inspiring. He knows his weight is holding him back from living life to the fullest and doing the things he wants to do including dating a “smoking hot chick.” There’s that humor again.
During an interview for Biggest Loser 13, Jeremy described his first meeting and workout with Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper. “Bob’s intense, man. It is no joke when you’re in there. He wants to bring out the best of you by sometimes bringing out the worst of you.”
Jeremy and his sister Conda know self-doubt and fear of the unknown are big hurdles to jump but hope their positive, upbeat attitudes will serve them well. They’re excited and willing to put in the time so they can see big results.
