You Must Be a Priority
Season one's third runner-up, Kelly, 28, described herself as a relentless giver who ignored her own needs and ate to satiate the emptiness she felt. After training with Jillian Michaels and losing a stunning 82 pounds (her starting weight was 242), she learned that nurturing herself is paramount. She could be a better daughter, friend, and role model if she lived in a fit and healthy body. With newfound dignity and self-worth, she also unlocked the possibility of having someone else love her in return. The lesson: Be your own high-stepping, baton-twirling majorette. The best way to inspire other underdogs is to set a constructive example; you never know who might take notice!
