I don't expect to be at my goal weight by the finale. If I can get down to 140kg by the finale I'd be ecstatic. I'm 50kg lighter now but I'm still morbidly obese. There's still a long way to go.

    • Damien: (on 'Biggest Loser' contestant Chris) He's young, he's cocky, very confident, and that rubs people up the wrong way. He's had two massive weight loss weeks, he's got to hit a wall sooner or later. You look at him and see he can't have that much more weight to lose. He eats a very low amount of calories. He got quite sick two weeks ago and everyone could see it coming.

    I watch the show every night just to see how Damien is going. I love the fact that despite his size he will give anything ago. I have, on a few occasions, nearly cried watching the pain on his face as he exercises never once giving up or saying I can't do this. My brother is obese and Damien reminds me of my brother. Damien if you ever read this know that you are truly an inspiration and you are proof that despite the odds being against you, you can achieve anything. You Damien have touched my heart and I know I don't speak just for myself.You have jumped the biggest hurdle in your life and I believe that anything you do now will be conquered with ease.Good luck with what ever you do!
