hi guys! my name is amanda leigh tyson and i am a 23 year old born and raised in a beach town in maine. i am currently on the journey of my life right now – my weightloss journey!
tipping the scales at 260 pounds, i knew it was time to make a change. i decided to take a chance and auditioned for the biggest loser season 12. i ended up making it as a casting finalist for the show & they flew me out to LA with 30 something other BL hopefuls. after more than a week of appointments and interviews, i was told that i didn’t get on the show.
after that letdown, i made it a point to say that i COULD and i WOULD do it on my own.
my weightloss journey officially started in december, 2011 when i spent a week at the biggest loser resort in malibu, california. the biggest loser resort ultimately changed my life. it opened my eyes to a world full of new possibilities and made me do things i never thought possible.
my life is now focused on inspiring others who are going through the same thing. i am here to motivate and guide people in the right direction. i graduated college with a degree in exercise science so that i CAN achieve these goals!
this blog is going to be a place where i share my struggles and my achievements while on this journey.
because i AM worth it.
