Suzy Preston, third-place finisher during Season 2, started the competition at 227 pounds and finished 95 pounds lighter. Suzy may have placed third on the show, but she placed first in Matt's heart! Suzy and Matt were married the year after they met on the show.
In 2008, Suzy and Matt had their second son...just one year after their first. Like Matt, Suzy has struggled with the mental aspect of the weight loss. "Your body can change, but if you don't change the way you think about yourself, your body will go back," she says. "I think getting pregnant was the best thing for me because I had to start gaining weight back. I had to change the way I saw myself and realize it's not all about the number on the scale. It's how you feel about yourself—how you see yourself."
