Megan Stone is a vivacious, animal-loving, 21-year-old country girl from Dittmer, Missouri. Although she was active in high school with rodeo competitions, choir, color guard, and 4H, Megan began to notice her weight gain at the age of 16. She remained active but didn’t change her eating style and over the years the pounds began to add up. When she could no longer get on her horse by herself, she knew things had to change. Megan, who weighs 259 pounds, teams up with her mother Kim Stone this season on Biggest Loser 13.
Megan is a college student who currently works in a support staff position for an organization that assists disabled adults. A self-described procrastinator, who always finds a reason not to exercise, Megan certainly has her work cut out for her. This season of the Biggest Loser has already been dubbed “the season of no excuses.”
As a life-long animal lover, Megan has spent a good portion of her childhood on the back of a horse. From rodeos to horseback riding competitions, she feels as comfortable with these majestic beasts as she does around people. Unfortunately, she is no longer able to climb up on her horse without assistance. She knows her extra weight is starting to hinder her activities and just wants to be able to move and feel healthy again.
Recently, she got to experience her first “typical” Biggest Loser workout session and described it this way: “It was intense. We definitely hit the ground running, or just hit the ground.”
Megan’s long-term weight loss goals include getting back on that horse, literally, and winning another rodeo prize. She also wants to train horses and shop at regular-sized clothing stores.
