Biography

Adam's motivation to lose weight stemmed from a devastating personal loss - losing his best friend and mother Nancy at 51, due to massive heart failure brought on by complications of diabetes and obesity. At that point, he knew he had to honor his mother by changing his life and getting healthy. Adam was always overweight, a combination of poor diet, lack of exercise, and over-eating. He grew up with his younger brother in Santa Ana, California, and attended Orange Coast College and Cal State Fullerton. Now 402 pounds at age 26, Adam wants to finally lose weight and help motivate others, including family members struggling with obesity. He wants to feel good about himself inside and out, and looks forward to traveling with his brother and enjoying an active, healthy lifestyle.

Adam's mother worked as an administrator for a medical center, where she helped with an annual Christmas toy and food drive for local, low-income families. Adam and his family are continuing the successful, 15-year program, which the medical center renamed Nancy's Miracle Toy Drive to honor his mother.

I kinda felt bad for him getting voted out, but he really should have used that 3 pound advantage and they would have won the challenge, and the target would have been off his back. He was thinking TOO far ahead. As for his teammates, I think they will regret voting him off instead of the girl, because he was putting up good numbers every week. SInce they are so worried about gameplay, they should have gotten with him and made him promise to unload the pound advantage thing next time (would have been a 4 pound advantage for their team) and they would keep him. They might NEED it because everybody except the one that counted put up good numbers, so they could be down a bit next week on number of pounds lost. Dumb people....

Now, on to his at home reveal - he did AMAZING - he has lost almost 150 pounds and about half of that at home on his own. He has a really good shot at the at home prize.
