Overweight most of her life, Lauren Clark was bullied and teased for much of her childhood and turned to food for comfort. She was born in Lumberton, North Carolina, the second oldest of five children, and raised in Bladenboro, North Carolina, where she still lives. Lauren graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in nutrition and dietetics, and works as a nutritionist but worries about what her clients and others in her profession think about a nutritionist who is overweight. Now 234 pounds, the 32-year-old single mother of a nine-year-old son says, "I've realized it's time to stop worrying about what others think or say and to start living for me and mine. I want to be healthy for my son and to stop the unhealthy habits I've passed on to him, to be an active mom and to be the example I'm supposed to be in my community as a nutritionist." She is also licensed to teach Zumba and enjoys Crossfit, but says she doesn't deal well with her emotions and still reverts back to emotional eating. Once she loses the weight, Lauren looks forward to running again, being able to get in the pool and go down water slides with her son, and sharing what she learns on the ranch to help others going through similar struggles.
