The people on Biggest Loser aren’t just trying to lose weight. Most of the time, they have personal, deep-seated issues that need to be overcome. For Anna Wright, it was putting the pieces back together after the death of her 3-year-old son, which was then immediately followed by the death of her father. She dealt with those losses by eating, and that pushed her to a starting weight of 330 pounds.
A long-time fan of the show, watching since season one, Anna had tried out four different times for a coveted spot at the ranch. She says her fourth audition was the charm! Then, when she was so close, a challenge in Atlanta was all that stood between her and the shirt. She lost the race, and her chance to go to the ranch, and says the look on her son’s face as he watched her lose killed her, and was the driving force she needed to lose more than 30 pounds at home on her own. That weight loss earned her the spot she’d longed for and she spent three weeks at Biggest Loser before being sent home last night.
Anna talks to us about what she did at home to lose the weight, which included a trip to the Biggest Loser Resort. She also talks about the rampant game play this season and how she felt naive to it. Listen now and then continue reading to learn more about Anna.
