Lisa Rambo, the eliminated contestant from Week 5 on the popular NBC weight loss competition ‘The Biggest Loser,’ was a guest this morning on the TODAY show to talk about shedding more than 80 pounds.
The secret to her success? She had high praise for her trainer Dolvett Quince and acknowledged that prior to ‘Loser’ she had never been on a treadmill. “Who knew that diet and exercise would actually work.”
With just six weeks to go before the final weigh-in to determine the grand prize winner and at-home champion, Rambo and her husband Tony have lost a combined 150 pounds.
She joked, “Between the two of us, we’ve lost a healthy adult, right?”
The Special Education assistant at Hudson High School has made her journey a family affair. The Wisconsin mother of four has incorporated winter activities in the scenic St. Croix River Valley region as part of her exercise routine. Lisa gets her burn going while sledding and snowshoeing with her kids. We’ve included a family photo that was taken before mom and dad slimmed down.
After her Rockefeller Plaza TODAY interview she and Tony braved the Manhattan chill and stood in line to score tickets to ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.’ The show host arrived while they were waiting and he posed with Lisa. Her husband @PastorRambo tweeted, “Look who Lisa ran into @jimmyfallon.” We’ll be watching tonight to see if he gives her a mention during the show.
Check out the TODAY video featuring Lisa and Tony … and be sure to tune in tonight for the newest episode of NBC’s ‘The Biggest Loser’ at 8/7c.
