‘Loser’ Whips Family Into Shape

MESA, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Losing weight is a family matter for one former reality fatty.

After getting the boot from The Biggest Loser: Couples on Tuesday (Apr. 28), Filipe Fa is making sure he and the rest of his family adopt a healthier lifestyle, even if they hate it.

He says, “I don’t know if they loved working out and stuff at first, but my family loves it now. I got calls from cousins after workouts saying ‘Oh my God, I’m sore in places I didn’t know existed.’ My daughter loves eating healthy now though.”

Since getting voted off, Fa and his cousin Sione – who was his partner on the reality weight loss competition – work out every morning and have a friendly rivalry that keeps the other going.

According to Fa: “If our trainer says to do five reps, I do extra, then he’ll do extra. It’s a little competition every morning. We trash talk to each other every day.”

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
