The greatest form of revenge is a good body — and Laura Hargrove, a woman who was previously rejected by the weight loss competition show, The Biggest Loser, can definitely attest to that.
The 32-year-old from Indiana, who admits she struggled with a binge-eating issue since she was a little girl, was tipping the scales at 230 pounds back in 2006, but didn't make the cut for the show.

But while the rejection did upset her at the time, it wasn't until two years later when she saw a home video of herself that she was inspired to shed the weight once and for all.
"I did my own thing. I honestly don't understand diets. And, I was tired of failing, so I just faked it," she told Daily Mail. "I didn't count calories or points or carbs or proteins or whatever. I just made smart choices."
And those choices resulting in her slimming down to 130 pounds! At first, she would give herself small weekly goals, like avoiding Starbucks or ice cream, but now that she's a smaller sized woman, she's maintaining her healthy weight with a calorie-counting app.
Laura, who is now happily married, admits she has "confidence" and is "comfortable in her own skin." She currently writes her own blog, Accidental Seamstress.
