Mini Bio

SunShine was a high school competitor in both synchronized swimming and competitive swimming. While she has always been heavier, her selfless attitude has made it difficult to allow time necessary to meet her weight loss goals. Family gatherings often leave SunShine tempted by food, and her job as a restaurant server leaves her surrounded by unhealthy dishes. She knows the decisions she makes now, at a young age, and the patterns she establishes for herself, will determine what her future. SunShine thinks the future is not as bright as it should be if she is not able to lose weight.

I would also like to show my support of Sunshine and the entire biggest loser cast. I think that this season has some truly beautiful people, inside & outisde. However, Sunshine struck me as being special from day 1. She is a beautiful young woman, and I do hope that this experience will help her find the self peace and comfort that she is seeking. Best of luck to you, Sunshine!! For whatever it's worth, I'm proud of you and the determination that you bring to your journey.

I just want to give some distant support to Sunshine and her Dad in there efforts toward success on the show. I just noticed the Yellow team in week 5 and I'm floored by Sunshine's being. Whether she chose to lose the weight, or some other goal it's great that her Dad is assisting her in her stride.Whether a contestant or not, Sunshine is very attractive. I hope to one day meet her in person to express how attractive she is. Even after the show is finished, she will still be gorgeous.If you're ever on the East Coast, you have a personal tour guide!
