Man Sheds Half His Body Weight

Jeremy Britt sheds more than half his body weight.
Twenty contestants had started out on the journey - but only one could become the Biggest Loser.
And in the finale of the 13th season of the show, viewers saw 22-year-old Jeremy Britt
take the title and the $250,000 prize after losing a whopping 199lbs - more than half his body weight - over the course of the show.
The banker from Michigan started out at 389lbs at the beginning of the series and lost 51.6 percent of his body weight to sculpt a trim 190lbs frame.

The percentage weight loss was the fifth best out of the all the winners of the show's series.
He almost lost his chance at winning the grand prize when he was eliminated in week 14, but was brought back as part of a surprising twist.
'It feels great,' 22-year-old Jeremy said of his experience on the show, before he was announced as the winner. 'I felt like I was supposed to be here... I fought for it.'
Before learning he had won the show Jeremy joined his sister Conda Britt and fellow finalist Kim Nielsen for the final weigh in.
Second place: Kim Nielsen lost 118lbs, 46.83 percent of her body weight
Second place:
Third: Jeremy's sister shed 115lbs, 39.12 percent of her body
Third: Jeremy's sister shed 115lbs, 39.12 percent of her body
While Jeremy was victorious both Kim and Conda also demonstrated impressive weight loss, with former wrestler Kim losing 118lbs, 46.83 percent of her body weight, while Jeremy's sister shed 115lbs, 39.12 percent of her body.
Britt wasn't the only winner of the evening - Mike Messina won the at-home prize after losing 160lbs which amounted to 44.69 percent of his body weight and for that feat he was presented with $100,000.
Mark Cornelison and Buddy Smith who had quit the show over the 'twist', were absent from the final, as was Joe Messina, who left to spend time with his family.
