Biggest losers reunion: See how we kept the weight off!

Their weight-loss achievements inspired us – now we catch up with past contestants to see how they’ve survived after the show.

Many thought they’d go back to their old ways once they left the house, but all our contestants say there’s no way they’ll ever return to their former selves – unhealthy, unhappy and uncontrollable.

For a few, The Biggest Loser experience has been so profound it has even spurred them to help others. And they all agree that a certain TV show gave them an opportunity for a new lease on life – one in which food is about choice rather than compulsion. They will never be the same again...

Teresa Mackay: “I had no friends and my husband left me”
“I decided to move to Newcastle, NSW, after the show ended. I’d never really had friends or been part of a team before. I’d never lived my life. Now, I have awesome friends and a wonderful new life.

“Before the show I was married. My ex-husband left me before the auditions. He wasn’t happy and neither was I, but he was the only one who had the balls to leave. “I am back working as a personal trainer and I play indoor netball and soccer. I’m back into kickboxing, and I go running on the sand.

Daina Bottrell: “I used to pretend I was happy”
“I put on a couple of kilos after the show, but that’s natural. It’s such a fabricated environment in the house – the only thing you can binge on is an orange! “I’m a size 12 still and I’m really happy with that. I feel fit and healthy. I play netball and I go for runs – I recently did a 10km run to raise money for [cancer charity] Canteen. Now I’m focusing on fitness rather than weight loss.
