Tumi Oguntala  Biggest Loser Season 15 Contestant Bio! Oguntala’s hometown is Clifton Park, New York . Her occupation is a Brand Strategist.

“When Tumi Oguntala was just 14 years old, she lost her 39-year-old mother to cancer. That life-changing experience, she says, “made me scared to start a family because of the fear that I, too, would leave young children behind. Achieving a healthy weight will go a long way towards giving me confidence that I can be here for my loved ones in the future.” Tumi was born in Phoenix, Ariz., and raised in Somerset, N.J., the middle child of three daughters. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University and later received her master’s degree there in business administration. Tumi became overweight after graduating from business school, attributing her weight gain to inconsistent exercise, yo-yo dieting and emotional eating. She says her “aha moment” came this year when she had to return for a second mammogram because the size of her breasts and the weight she had gained since her last mammogram made it difficult for her health care team to interpret her initial results. At age 41, weighing 319 pounds and suffering from high cholesterol, Tumi looks forward to focusing on achieving a healthy weight without the distractions of her day-to-day life at home. Once she loses the weight, she plans to marry her fiancé and start a family”

The Biggest Loser will make it’s season 15, on NBC with fifteen new contestants. It will air Tuesdays from 8-9 p.m. ET.

The Biggest Loser is premiere their premiere of season 13 for their second part in the second night ths how tonight is called ‘Get Moving’ where football star Antonio Gates guest stars.

Celeb Dirty Laundry reports: On last night’s show the white team lost the weigh-in, there was a red line and the person with the lowest percentage of weight loss was sent home be going home. The person who headed home in week 1 was TC. This was unbelievable, this guy deserved to be there and this was all Nikki’s fault. TC felt really great about himself, like he had a breakthrough and didn’t think he deserved to go home. Jillian gave TC a pep talk, then it was hugs for everyone and he was gone home. The good news, we got to see glimpse of TC and he lost another 41 pounds at home on his own.  Did you watch  last night’s part one of the premiere show?  We did and we recapped it here for you!

On tonight’s show the contestants are encouraged to “Get Moving,” and find themselves pushed to new limits when they are introduced to the new outdoor gyms that each trainer has custom designed. The stakes are high, with another red line looming for whoever loses the least amount of weight, and the dreaded “week 2 curse” that has instilled fear in all the contestants. Dr. H visits the ranch, giving the adult players an eye-opening wake-up call about just how unhealthy they really are, and one trainer has a heart-to-heart talk with their team to try and get them on track.

Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels Attacking Childhood Obesity Head On

Biggest Loser`s Jillian Michaels Attacking Childhood Obesity Head On

Jillian Michaels, personal trainer and best known for her appearances on NBC’s The Biggest Loser and Losing It With Jillian,  will be tackling childhood obesity head on when season 18 of The Biggest Loser returns to NBC.

Jillian told Al Roker on the Today show that she was an overweight teenager and that is what inspires her to want to help other teenagers. In the new season, three teenagers will be featured, but they will not live on the ranch or even participate for the cash prize. It’s all about helping them to get healthy.

Last year nearly 20% of America’s children were obese and something definitely has to be done to help these children who will eventually struggle with many health issues such as; diabetes, heart disease and liver problems, to name a few. Jillian is determined to help children, the right way, “It’s obviously something that needs to be handled with kid gloves, but it’s something that needs to be handled, for example, we won’t be saying things to kids like, ‘How much weight did you lose?’ It’s about getting them healthy, using wordke ‘healthy.’ We won’t be getting them on a scale; it’s about getting them on a softball team — things like that.”

Basically it comes down to reducing calories and increasing physical activity. Sounds easy, but it’s not and children need the support of their families, medical professionals and devoted trainers.

 

Jillian took a break from the show to adopt her daughter and spend time with her new family. She will join regular trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince to work with the teenagers along with medical staff and childhood obesity experts.

The Biggest Loser returns in January 2013 on NBC although there has not been an official air date released yet.
