Michelle Aguilar is from Dallas, Texas. Michelle had a weight problem because she turned to food after her parents got divorced. She joined The Biggest Loser competition in Season 6 with her mother Renee (who she hadn't spoken to in 6 years). Michelle credits God for helping her stay in the competition when she was tempted to be the first person in The Biggest Loser history to voluntary leave the show. She stayed and would go on to narrowly become the winner of The Biggest Loser competition in Season 6 (Fall, 2008), losing 110 pounds.
Her website says, "Michelle credits her faith in God for her ability to emerge a stronger woman, forever changed by the circumstances of her life, but not defined by them (Source)." The following is a video created with Michelle Aguilar as part of the I Am Second series in the Spring of 2009.
