Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Ali Vincent, the first woman to win “The Biggest Loser,” said that she has regained almost all of the 112 pounds that she lost on the NBC show eight years ago.
According to reports, the 41-year-old reality star now wants to slim down again. Vincent took to Facebook to share the regaining of the weight after the anniversary of her “The Biggest Loser” win. Back in 2008, the 5’5” star entered the competition weighing 234 pounds and was down to 122 after it was over. In the years following the aftermath of the competition, Vincent appeared to be maintaining a healthy lifestyle. She even documented her fitness journey in the reality show entitled “Live Big with Ali Vincent,” which aired on ABC from 2011 to 2014.
She, however, said on her Facebook post that she was struggling despite the healthy lifestyle she has showed to the viewers. She said, "When I struggle, I shut down, I feel alone, I push people away, I hide, I sleep all day, I eat. I try to feel satisfied and comforted but do nothing to allow true satisfaction or comfort. I swore I would never be there again, be here again. I couldn't imagine a day again that I would weigh over 200 pounds. I feel ashamed. I feel embarrassed. I feel overwhelmed. I feel like failure."
Aside from her Facebook post, Vincent also appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN series entitled “Where Are They Now.” While appearing on a Skype chat, she said that she is at a low point after she read comments about how fat she was.
Vincent continued to share on her post that she recently joined Weight Watchers and said that she is starting with her daily Shakeology and 10,000 steps. She shared, "Yesterday was my first week weigh in at Weight Watchers & boy was I anxious. I did lose 5lbs this week and that is motivating. However, I know that I can't control the scale so I don't want to give it too much power; I'd rather give the power and strength to myself."
