HOUSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One former fatty is a real life Benjamin Button.

Competing on The Biggest Loser: Couples is so life- changing, it can actually turn back time for its contestants.

That’s what Vicky Andrews found after the on set doctor told the 22-year-old that healthwise, she’s actually 45 years old and has a high risk of breast cancer, heart attacks, and diabetes.

However, after lots of blood, sweat, and tears, Andrews has successfully turned back the clock on her body.

She says, “I went to age 28. You don’t realize how bad you feel until you feel better.”

Since going back in time, Andrews feels “genuinely happy,” more energetic, and finally looks at herself as a “beautiful” woman.

With her stronger, younger body, she’s been hitting the streets with her running shoes on long-distance jogs, something she was never able to do before.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
