This past Tuesday (Oct. 13), Mo Dewalt eliminated himself from The Biggest Loser, but hes still a hero to his family and the students he works with as a youth mentor.
Dewalt came into the reality weight-loss competition at a whopping 355 pounds as a result of his nasty habit for fast food, but has now dropped 80 pounds and become an inspiration to his loved ones.
He says, My family calls me a hero, and they really think I am. Im just a man trying to lose weight.
Though he admits dieting and working out has been really hard as a result of ongoing injuries, Dewalt assures hes not a hero.
He may not be comfortable being called Superman by his daughter, but he is happy to be the driving force behind his family getting fit and losing a combined weight of 105 pounds.
The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
