Becoming the fifth place semifinalist on Season 2 of NBC's hit series "The Voice" was a career high for 26-year-old Erin Willett. But behind the scenes, she was also dealing with the devastating loss of her father to pancreatic cancer. To cope with the stress and scrutiny of being in the public eye for the first time, Erin turned to food, adding over 40 pounds to her already-overweight frame by the time her season on Blake Shelton's team was over. Erin was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland, with an older brother, and graduated from Hofstra University, where she majored in marketing with a minor in music. She thinks bad eating habits, a hectic schedule and the struggle to balance emotional milestones, such as her father dying, all contributed to her weight gain. Tired of being ashamed of her weight, feeling out of control and having never been able to lose weight in a healthy way, Erin is now 238 pounds and ready to get healthy. Once she loses the weight, she says, "I look forward to feeling unstoppable and powerful, and taking control of my own destiny instead of just going through the motions of the day."
