When Sam Rouen began the 3rd season of The Biggest Loser, he was a 19-year-old kid who weighed over 330lbs. When it was over, he had dropped over 150 of those and picked up some excellent habits that would stick with him and change his life.

“…10 years, hey. What a time. So much has happened, good, bad, everything between. Highest highs and lowest lows. All I know is I’ve got some amazing people in my corner and I’m unconditionally appreciative of that.”

Sam shared this before-and-after photo of him as a chubby teenager and as a ripped fireman, and, honestly, it’s hard to believe it could be the same person.

“I’m addicted to working out now, I definitely love running and working out with my brother. I play a bit of sport to stay in shape and also work out in the gym.”

Even though he has some leftover anxiety and body-image issues, Sam is definitely doing well – and is surely the poster boy for Biggest Loser success.
