Here is my audition tape for season 11……12 and 14 to come!!!
At what point does an over weight, out of shape mother of four look in the mirror and say “Something has to give?” That is where I was when they announced the Biggest Loser casting was coming to the Minnesota State fair to cast season 11! So I knew I had to go!
I was 5’6″ weighed 245 pounds and did not know how to take care of the weight I had been ignoring. I knew if they were looking for a passionate, down to earth woman, who is sure to make you laugh…I WAS THE GIRL THEY WERE LOOKNG FOR! I knew I needed help. I was not looking for an “easy” button. I knew losing weight is hard work. I had lost the same weight over and over again playing diet games. I was desperatly looking for someone to step into my life and break 35 years of unhealthy habits and radically change my life! I needed to lose the weight so I could keep up with crazy ideas I have and enjoy them (like climb to the top of half dome & do the 3 day walk for the cure). I had also been watching my children start getting excited about being athletes and I wanted to be an athlete too. I also had a deep desire to live a long life of adventure with my family!!!
So off I went to the State Fair. I stood in line, filled out my shout application, forgot my picture, had a ton of fun, got to know new people, sat around the casting table, and got a call back!! They asked for more footage, then NOTHING!! who knows why?It just was not my time. I will go on to casting call for 12 (no callback) and then 14…….So for those of you who have gone, tried before and are thinking of going again. I SAY GO!!!! Pursue your dreams! Make it happen. I had spent decades looking at a disappointed and defeated girl who kept saying ” I’d love to look better, I’d love to feel better, I want to be strong!!!!… BUT I just don’t think I can do one more diet.” I have to ask is there any greater defeat than thinking you can not change? I now believe all things are possible and dreams do come true!!!! GO FOR IT!!!!!
