This past week, Biggest Loser 9 contestant Andrea Hough was eliminated. Returning home after her elimination, her saddened mood was quickly uplifted once she was greeted by her family and friends, who had not seen her since her stay on the Biggest Loser Ranch. It was here that she fully realized just how far she has come on her transformative weight loss journey.
Her elimination did not come as a surprise to her. She knew it was coming and as she packed up her things from the Ranch, she harbored no hard feelings towards any of her fellow contestants who collectively decided to vote her off.
Andrea started the Biggest Loser 9 series at 298 pounds. Now back at home in Ann Arbor, Michigan cruising around in her new 2010 Mazda, which she won on the show, Andrea is now at 206 pounds, but she is not stopping there.
Since she has been home, she has learned that her hometown of Ann Arbor is actually a very healthy town with numerous outdoor areas that Andrea takes advantage of to stay in shape. Despite her new wheels, she is quick to lace up her running shoes and walk to the grocery store to do her weekly shopping for healthy eats.
Listen here to learn how Andrea plans to inspire others with her weight loss story in her home state, Michigan, which has one of the highest obesity rates in the country. She also discusses her future plans for her having a family of her own one day.
