Kimmy Stone was eliminated last week from The Biggest Loser, after both she and her daughter fell below the yellow line – meaning one of them would be going home. Kimmy sacrificed herself, pleading with her fellow contestants to send her home so her daughter could stay. Despite being the lesser threat of the two, the ‘Biggest Loser’ contestants showed a little compassion and give her daughter more time on the Ranch, sending Kimmy back home.
Was Kimmy worried about going home and facing the challenges back at home? Not at all! She knew she would be just fine. In fact, she says it was a no-brainer! She reveals:
“I didn’t feel like I would be going home to face failure. I felt like I was already a winner, that I was already successful and that I was going to be just fine. And I felt like I wanted Megan to have more time to spend on the ranch to continue to lose weight and to continue with her fitness program.
And as a parent you know you always want the best for your child. That’s a natural instinct and I had the feeling that sacrificing my position on the show in order for Megan to stay was a no brainer for me. It was very easy. It was a sacrifice that I was more than willing to make.”
Kimmy says she’s still following the same diet she was on at the Ranch, making sure she has plenty of snacks in between meals, and always being prepared. She explains:
“I try to keep my protein at about four ounces per meal and I try to make sure that I have a low calorie snack in between my breakfast and my lunch and between my lunch and my dinner so that I don’t get that starving feeling.
I kind of compare this to going to war. And I want to have my artillery and my cavalry set up before I ever do anything. So what I do is I pack myself an ice chest full of food and snacks that I can take along with me no matter where I go so that I make sure that I never get to that point where I’m so hungry that I’ll just reach for the first thing that comes in front of me.
And fresh fruits and vegetables for me have become absolutely crucial. I make sure that I have plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables surrounding me at all times. And my whole family is picking up on this now. And it’s a wonderful thing. It’s brought a lot of positive changes. My husband’s actually lost 45 pounds now.”
