Thirty-seven-year-old Lisa Rambo says her primary motivation for going on "The Biggest Loser" is to be strong and healthy and a good role model for her four children, ages 5, 7, 10 and 11. She remembers watching the show and making the eye-opening discovery that the starting weights of some of the contestants were very close to her own weight, now 246 pounds. Lisa also watched her aunt's life- threatening health struggles when she was in her 50s and realized she needed to make a big change to avoid serious health problems down the road. Poor diet, no exercise, working for many years in the food service industry and being a busy working mother of four have all contributed to her weight gain and have left Lisa with little time and energy to take care of herself. Inspired to work with special needs children by her aunt, who has Down's Syndrome, Lisa is now a special education assistant for high school students and hopes to one day open a special needs gym in her community to help her students who are overweight. She is also very involved in community activities and directs community service activities for her church. Once the weight is off, Lisa looks forward to clothes shopping, hiking, canoeing and enjoying other outdoor adventures with her family.Close X
