This is just heartbreaking! Former ‘The Biggest Loser’ champ Ali Vincent has revealed that she’s gained back nearly all of the 112 pounds she lost on the show because of some horrible personal setbacks. Keep reading for why her weight has become a struggle again.
Ali Vincent, 41, became the first woman to win the NBC diet competition show back in 2008 with her remarkable 112 pound weight loss and was so proud of herself. But now she’s spiraled back into struggles with her figure after some hard times. “The Biggest Loser gave me the opportunity to believe in myself and I don’t know that I ever really did,” she revealed to T.D. Jakes on the Dec. 5 episode of the pastor’s OWN talk show. “Everybody wanted me to and I wanted to for them, and I had results to prove it,’ she continued. “But do I really deserve to have everything that I dream of? Do I deserve to have this happiness?” OMG, how sad! Of course you deserve it Ali!
She went from 234 pounds to 122 pounds during her season and has slowly gained it back over time. Ali feels horrible about it now, but over the course of the past eight years has dealt with a number of things that have caused her weight to creep back above 200 pounds. “I know that there’s stuff that I have to deal with, and I know that it goes back way far, but then I also know that I’m 41 years old — when am I going to own my own stuff?” she said. “When can I just let go?” How devastating!
It’s been a rough few years for Ali, as she revealed to Oprah earlier this year that she had been sexually assaulted in 2015 while getting a massage. ‘And I woke up to — I woke up to some one feeling in my vagina. And I was just like in shock, like what’s going on, what’s happening? And then I just jumped up and I ran out and just hid. And I was sitting there in a ball and I was just shaking, and I don’t know how to explain it. But I just was so afraid. I was scared.” She said that caused her to shut down emotionally and crawl into a spiral that she’s still dealing with. We’re sure that with T.D. and Oprah helping Ali along, she’s on her way to getting her weight and emotional health back.
