Driving A Big Obstacle For `Loser'

Biggest Loser cast-off Andrea Hough hates sitting still while driving.

Biggest Loser cast-off Andrea Hough hates sitting still while driving.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One former fatty is putting the brakes on driving.

Since being voted off The Biggest Loser: Couples this past Tuesday (Apr. 13), Andrea Hough has been making big changes in her life, including ditching her car.

Contestants hardly go anywhere while they’re at the Loser Ranch, so Hough says it was hard driving again because her newly-active self “forgot what it’s like to sit in a car and not do anything.”

Instead of parking her butt in a driver’s seat for 30 minutes to get groceries, Hough figures she can now walk to the market.

She’s also taken to bicycling her way around town as an alternative to driving.

If she does need to get behind the wheel, the sweet ride she won on Biggest Loser has been a godsend after years of driving a bucket the size of a go-kart.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
