Crowned this season’s The Biggest Loser on tonight’s live finale of the hit NBC show, Danni Allen, who lost a whopping 121 pounds, opens up in an exclusive interview with In Touch on how much she has truly gained by shedding her bad habits. “My entire quality of life has improved. I never knew how happy I could be!” the 5-foot-6 advertising account coordinator exclusively tells In Touch of her “biggest loser” status.
Currently training for the Chicago Marathon this fall, at 137 pounds and a size 4, 26-year old Danni says she can finally wear what she wants. “I had moments in the past where I thought I was sexy — but never beautiful,” she shares with In Touch, explaining: “I’m wearing the clothes [now]! The clothes aren’t wearing me.”
With the help of trainer Jillian Michaels, she not only revamped her workouts — but her entire lifestyle. “I made my apartment a safe zone by removing all foods that were unhealthy or triggers for my binge tendencies, like ice cream,” the Illinois native describes. “It still amazes me how I absentmindedly find my hand over a chip bowl at parties!”
Though she admits her goals are a work in process, Danni is determined to keep the pounds off. “When I’m asked if I have a boyfriend, I say yes,” she jokes with In Touch. “His name is Gym!”
Great job, Danni, and congratulations!
