Conda Britt works as a nutrition technician for a large hospital in Rockford, Michigan. Every day she’s responsible for making sure patients follow their doctor’s orders in regard to nutritious diets and healthy eating. At 294 pounds, she sees weight loss success stories all the time and she’s ready to be one of them. Conda, 24, and her younger brother Jeremy Britt, 22, teamed up to be Biggest Loser 13 contestants to learn new eating habits and get fit while they’re still young. Conda has another inspiring incentive, her 2-year-old daughter.
As a single parent, Conda keeps very busy taking care of her daughter, working and even attending courses at Montcalm Community College. She knows she needs to take time for herself and that includes starting a healthy routine for the first time ever. In the past, eating right and getting exercise were not a priority.
As a self-proclaimed “social butterfly,” she’s always been surrounded by good friends and had boyfriends so self-image wasn’t a concern. Unfortunately, her overall health wasn’t a concern either. Her grandmother recently passed away from weight-related health issues. It was then she realized her weight problems really were more serious than just not being able to fit in to smaller clothes, that it could have serious long term side effects.
Conda knows motivation will be a big factor in her success on the ranch. She knows she will constantly have to think about why she’s there and what her long term goals are. She’s beginning the Biggest Loser 13 journey with her brother and a good attitude, a “fighter’s” attitude. She vows to get healthy so she can juggle all of her responsibilities and be around for her daughter for a very long time.
