Vinny Hickerson Before and After Pic - Biggest Loser Season 12

Vinny Hickerson Before and After Pic – Biggest Loser Season 12

Last Friday night I got to work out with Vinny Hickerson. If you don’t know who this is, I googled him for you.

Vinny was on Season 12 of the Biggest Loser and is in the band, Trailer Choir. He is a real inspiration!

Weighing 453 pounds, Vinny decided he needed to change. He decided it was time when he was stuck in the hospital. Sometimes that’s what you need…a health scare. A decision to change your life and way of living.

Vinny has lost big – 211 pounds! He did this strictly by working hard (even with a hectic schedule) and eating right. He added exercise and lost weight before he was on the Biggest Loser. He cut down his portion sizes and cleaned up his meals.

I loved hearing his story. He talked about his past and events that led him to an unhealthy life. He talked about his goal to lose weight but not let that be overshadowed by a big number. Instead, concentrate on making the right decisions every day.  He continues to strive for better and makes new goals after all these years of working hard.

He has kept off the weight for four years. His new goal is to compete as a body builder. He has added supplements to help him reach his goals and is now a Labrada sponsored athlete as well.

You can’t change your past but you can #findyourstrength for a healthier future!





I write blogs about my accomplishments, my failures, my doubts, my goals, and my inspiration. But, it’s really not about me. It’s about real life and the challenges we each face and continuing to find your strength along the way. I want to inspire people, but I also want them to see the real me. I am just a normal person trying to do the best I can with what I was given. This is my journey and you have yours.  Nobody is perfect…all the time. We all suck at things. -Mary Sheckler
