Tracey is said to have had one of the most surprising transformations as a contestant in Season 8 of NBC’s hit TV show, The Biggest Loser. After collapsing from heat stroke during a 1 mile run the first day on camera, Tracey spent two weeks on the heart floor of the local hospital where she learned she had plaque on her heart at the young age of 37.
This was the real wake-up call for Tracey and where her true transformation began. The Biggest Loser became a launch pad to Tracey’s new life. Since leaving the show, her weight is now a healthy 130, and she’s down from a size 22 to a size 4. She’s positively impacted her entire family and is once again a woman she can respect. Tracey is committed to sharing her story of hope and recovery to empower women to take the time to take care of themselves. She has a simple philosophy for anyone struggling with weight and self image. Believe in yourself. Live the life you love. That’s something she had forgotten how to do.
Prior to The Biggest Loser, Tracey spent several years on the hamster wheel of weight loss, cycling through endless fad diets and quick fixes while juggling an unhealthy and fast-paced lifestyle courtesy of three young children and a progressing career in the food and retail industries. Her biggest question was whether she’d ever get back to her college weight.
After the birth of her fourth child and a decision to hang up her suits and heels to manage her home, she fell off the wheel completely, climbing to 250 pounds and completely losing control. At her lowest point, she was hiding from her family in the bathroom, eating cookies while beating herself up, ashamed of the woman she had become. But she turned her life around and believes others can to.
Tracey is currently training to run the Boston Marathon and raising money for Homes for Our Troops. Her speaking engagements, boot-camps and workshops on diet and nutrition are helping women across the country reclaim their lives.read less
