Biggest Loser Season Winners, Helen Phillips exercises in Warren, Mich., in December as she strives to keep off the weight she lost on her way to becoming a “Biggest Loser.” She has lost 140 pounds. Helen Phillips shows the T-shirt she wore when starting on her weight-loss journey.
Pete Thomas poses in front of a picture of his former self in Ann Arbor, Mich. Mike, left, and his father, Ron Morelli, talk about their experience on “The Biggest Loser” near life-size “before” photos at a market in Grosse Point, Mich., in June 2009. Pete Thomas works out in Ann Arbor, Mich. “Your biggest tool is your mind,” he says.
Helen Phillips made the same New Year’s resolution almost every year of her adult life: “I’m going to lose weight.”
She would kick off the year with new gym shoes and workout clothes to match her motivation. However, her enthusiasm would wear out before her new shoes.
Like many of us, she would end the year with no pounds lost or – worse – far more gained than she had temporarily lost.
That changed in 2009, when she became a contestant on NBC’s reality weight-loss show, “The Biggest Loser.”
Phillips, of Sterling Heights, Mich. proudly became half the woman she used to be, dropping from 257 to 117 pounds.
Other Michigan residents have lost big on the show too:
n Pete Thomas of Ann Arbor shed 185 pounds and was the show’s biggest at-home loser in 2005.
n Since Ron Morelli appeared on the show in 2009, his entire South Lyon family has changed from fat to fit.
n Carla Triplett of Detroit is 100 pounds lighter but still on her weight-loss journey.
These four “Biggest Losers” now spend time encouraging others to lose weight.
As many people make America’s most popular resolution this time of year, they offer their stories and tips to help.
