As a way of dealing with pain and heartache after her husband left her while she was pregnant, Biggest Loser contestant Ana Alvarado turned to food for comfort and gradually became obese. Suffering from arthritis in both knees, lower back pain and high blood pressure, she aims to live a healthier lifestyle so she could travel with her daughter.
Ana initially weighed 255 pounds and was one of the Biggest Loser contestants who were eliminated early on the competition. This, however, did not stop her from reaching her goal to lose weight. She proved this in the finale when it was revealed that she lost 109 pounds, bringing her weight down to an impressive 146 pounds.
