Alexandra Alex Reid
Biggest Loser 14 Contestants
Consuming unhealthy fast food and sugary beverages caused Alexandra "Alex" Reid to gain at 18 years old. Born in North Carolina, but ended growing up in Texas because of her parents divorce.
Weighing 240 pounds at age 24 her wake up call came when she told a friend she couldn't be a bridesmaid a week before the wedding. She was afraid she couldn't fit into her dress and that she would stick out like a sore thumb in front of the slimmer bridesmaids. Alex says her weight is holding her back in life, "I want to be the best me that I can be in all aspects of my life, including winning this losing battle with my weight. I no longer want to be insecure and self-conscious." Like any normal young woman, Alex wants to be comfortable in her own skin and looks forward to outdoor adventures like rock climbing and hiking.Next Prev Slide 5 / 18
