Kai Hibbard came in second on last weeks season finale despite losing a record-setting 118 pounds.
Still, she feels like a winner even though she sometimes sees her former 262-pound self when she looks in the mirror.
Plus, losing the lard has had an effect in other ways. She admits: I feel more vulnerable now. Im used to taking up space.
Now, shes taking up law. Hibbard has been accepted to the University of Maine Law School on a full-ride scholarship.
Although the native of Alaska admits a cold weather climate may have made her prone to packing on the pounds, she is vowing to cope with the pressures of school by running on a treadmill instead of chowing down on pizza and beer.
