Thought to share the letter I entered to be considered for becoming part of the Team Wolf Biggest Loser:
There are tons of reasons I can give you as to why I want to be apart of your team. To look and feel better, to fit in my old clothes again, and to look into a mirror at myself and not be disgusted by what I see. But most important the reason I want to join is because of ME! My name is Stacy and first off I weight 225 pounds! That is 75 pounds over where I want to be. I have dealt with a lot of criticism in my life, but nothing compares to the pain I feel when I am made fun of because of my weight. On top of the emotional effects of being over weight I am now starting to show signs of the physical ones. I was burned when I was 6 years old. I have 3rd degree burns all over my body. My weight has effected my scars to the point where I start to loose the weight or in the future have to have surgery to relieve the pulling of my scars. But that is not the main reason as to why I want to join your team. I have tried to loose the weight myself. I was partially successful but now I am at a fork in the road where I think I need to be pointed in the right direction. I would love to be apart of something where not only I can be taught how to loose the weight but also to keep it off. I come from a family of overweight people. In fact my grandfather was severely overweight and it caused his death. I can't let myself get that way. I have two wonderful little boys I need to be there for them. To be in shape so I can keep up with them because right now I barely can! I need direction and I want to belong to a team I know can motivate me. If you choose me to be apart of TEAM WOLF I will make you proud. I have nothing to loose but weight!
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. Only 4 days left till the start of my new life!!!
