Interview with Biggest Loser’s Eliminated Contestants Carla and Joelle

With four votes against them, the Silver Team was eliminated from the Biggest Loser Ranch. Carla and Joelle may have been sent packing to their homes in Michigan, but both are in it for the long haul and ready to make some amazing changes.

Carla and Joelle were not able to attend the interview together, but you can hear them separately below.

Listen to Joelle’s interview now.

Listen to Carla’s interview now.

Carla is not only inspiring a nation by losing 20 pounds on her own after being sent home week one from a twist in the game, but also inspiring the important people in her life to make positive changes. With the support of her friends and family, Carla is finding the motivation everyday to wake up early, hit the gym with lots of cardio, eat right and continues to keep knocking the pounds off. Oh, and she’s knocking them out alright, Carla has a punching bag in her basement that she uses to knock the calories off one punch at a time!

Since being eliminated, Carla has picked up right where she left off and continues to move forward on her weight loss journey. She’s looking forward to making some jaws drop when she steps on stage at the finale. “As the shows heaviest woman ever, I want to come back to the finale and show America that I can do it.”

Carla’s teammate Joelle is also at home in Michigan moving forward. Joelle is using everything she learned on the ranch to make better choices and have a healthier lifestyle. While adjusting to home life, Joelle finds herself mixing it up in the gym a lot so she “isn’t getting bored” because we all know how tedious the treadmill can be! Joelle is loving her kickboxing, step and core strengthening classes and has even inspired friends to incorporate the incline training she learned from Bob Harper.

“It takes a village to create change,” says Joelle, and her village consists of personal trainers and the support of her family and friends. Not only is Joelle enjoying watching the pounds fall off, but really excited to be enjoying the more “feminine” things in life we sometimes take for granted. For instance, balancing in high heels and shopping through her own closet! Joelle is excited about the finale where she looks forward to shining and reaching her goal of being under 200 pounds. The Silver Team is on a mission and I think their success to this point speaks volumes.
