Megan Stone describes herself as a “fun loving, comedic, artistic and high-spirited young adult who is
missing out on enjoying life” because of her inability to do things that most 21 year olds can do. She
hopes “The Biggest Loser” will give her the “extreme life overhaul” she needs to finally get healthy.
Megan was raised in Dittmer, Missouri, the youngest of three children.
She was popular and active in
high school as president of the choir, co-captain of the color guard team and a 4-H member, but started
to gain weight at age 16. A lifelong animal lover, Megan has been riding horses and participating in
horseback riding competitions and rodeos throughout her life, and knew it was time to make a change
when she was unable to get on top of her horse without help.
Now 21 years old, 259 pounds and tired of
her weight holding her back, she wants to get healthy so she can participate in rodeos again and win,
train horses and shop at regular clothing stores.
