‘Loser’ Eliminee No Sucker To Temptation

SHIOCTON, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Biggest Loser reject has triumphed over temptation.

Wisconsin native Cathy Skell was eliminated from The Biggest Loser: Couples this past Tuesday (Mar. 17), but she is a winner in one respect.

When contestants were allowed to return home for a week, the yummy cakes, candy, and high-calorie meals that were available to Skell just didn’t seem that appealing.

She says, “I was pretty good with the temptation. My biggest temptation is if we go out to eat so I avoided that. I felt absolutely great that I could overcome all those temptations.”

The fact that all her family has gotten involved in her weight loss and started working out and dieting themselves provided Skell with the fuel to keep on track.

Now she looks forward to “doing things I’ve never been able to do because of my weight,” like swimming, hiking, and waterskiing.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
