Michelle Aguilar          

Winner of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" Season 6, Author, Motivational Speaker

Michelle Aguilar entered The Biggest Loser looking to lose weight and resurrect her relationship with her mother. She emerged a champion on both levels. Aguilar was crowned The Biggest Loser: Families champion during the NBC reality weight-loss series' sixth season.

The 26-year-old assistant director from Ft. Worth, TX started the competition at 242 pounds and lost 110 pounds for a 45.45% weight-loss percentage, claiming the show's $250,000 grand prize.

Michelle Aguilar’s journey began at the age of 18, when she received a phone call at work from her mother, saying she was divorcing her father. Michelle felt somehow responsible, and that there was something wrong with her. She began to internalize the pain, becoming estranged from her mother and ceasing all communication for 6 years.

As Michelle became more depressed, she began using food as a coping device, all the while concealing her pain and guilt to the outside world behind her beautiful smile.

Through the advice of a friend, Michelle Aguilar and her father auditioned for The Biggest Loser. Weeks later, Michelle was called back to audition for Season 6, when her father suggested she invite her mother. Both Michelle and her mother went on to become contestants of Season 6, during which Michelle learned that forgiveness is possible, thus beginning the healing process.

Michelle Aguilar has since been featured in numerous magazines and has worked with the “got milk?” advertising campaign.

Today, you can find Michelle touring nationally with Women of Faith and speaking on her first book, Becoming Fearless.

Michelle Aguilar was married in the spring of 2009 and continues to live in Texas.
