About Us

Biggest Loser sister team and Season 11 Winners Hannah Curlee & Olivia Ward are uniting here at their blog MyFitspiration.Com to share with you Fitness, Fashion, and All Things Fun!!

Hannah’s  biggest motivation for going on NBC’s The Biggest Loser was her overwhelming desire to overcome depression and gaining a life without limitations.  Like her sister, Hannah, too was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).  She  earned a bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations at the University of Alabama. In her high school days, she was the homecoming queen and star athlete, but avoided her 10-year high school reunion because, she says, “I was too ashamed to let everyone see what I’ve become.” Weight didn’t become an issue for Hannah until she was 20 years old. She had an accident, which resulted in emergency back surgery and ended her collegiate sports career. Feeling defeated, she began to gain weight.

When 32 year old Hannah stepped onto the scale for the first time at The Biggest Loser she weighed 248 pounds and 22 weeks later she wowed 8.5 million viewers, having lost 120 pounds. Today, Hannah tours the country speaking about the importance of nutrition and wellness and maintains her weight loss through cardio workouts and early morning boot camp regiments.

Olivia’s biggest motivation for going on NBC’s The Biggest Loser was being 261 pounds, 35 years old, diagnosed with PCOS and being told she would likely never have children if she didn’t lose weight. As an opera singer, she was also tired of losing coveted roles to people who looked healthier – it wasn’t enough to just have a great voice. She received a degree in vocal performance at the University of Alabama, and master’s degrees in vocal performance and opera performance from the New England Conservatory of Music. A poor diet and no exercise led to her obesity, and the weight gain continued as she was diagnosed with PCOS when says she “completely gave up.”

After spending 22 weeks on the Biggest Loser Ranch, Olivia lost 129 pounds and gained a new happier and healthier life. Olivia continues to maintain that weight loss and inspire others as an instructor at SoulCycle in NYC and travels the country to speak about fitness, fashion and all things fun!

Hello I was wondering if you could do a video about dealing with your pcos. Also I would like to hear about what all you have done to get the weight off. I can work my booty off for hours and hours a day for 6-7 days a week and eat really well and I just can’t seem to lose the weight. I have pcos and I really struggle finding what helps get the weight off. Also that the weight can come back so fast. Cannot wait to hear what has helped you dealing with pcos while trying to lose weight and keeping it off. You both look amazing!

Walking 10 miles 7 days a week is all that I have found that as worked for me. I lost 35 lbs in 3 months. Then I lost 14 lbs in 30 days. But I get at complete standstills for months and months. Any tips would be great!

Hi Ashley! Walking is awesome, however switching things up helps. Keep walking at least 5 miles and throw in some high intensity classes. Also, any body weight exercises or even weights would be an excellent addition!

We have talked about this in our earlier videos. Here is what I can tell you! PCOS, unfortunately, is like having diabetes. Sugar and carbs are VERY hard for us. We are very insulin sensitive. We watch our carb and sugar intake and we sweat! The thing about PCOS is consistancy and staying away from sugar spiking binges. It takes longer for our bodies to balance out so I still deal with fluctuation. When my carb and sugar intake is lower, I do better. On the show, our only carbs came from veggies and berries. THAT’S IT! It is hard, but you just have to work harder than the average person without PCOS and be consistent. It can be done!!! 😉

Hi Hannah,

Firstly I just wanted to thank you both for inspiring so many thousands of people across the world. You’re two beautiful women who everyone can relate to, who can see what you achieved through hard work, blood sweat and tears. I have 40 lbs to lose and have already lost 14lbs. My question is: How do you maintain your motivation with your diet and exercise? One week I lose 4’lbs and the next gain 2, and this is how my pattern continues. Please help? Xx

I just finished your season of The Biggest Loser (I know, I’m behind!) and I am so inspired by you two. I was diagnosed with PCOS earlier this year and am 10 weeks into my weight loss journey so I can have children. I didn’t know you had PCOS until the end but your stories are very motivational. I will get there one day!

Hi! I just wanted to reach out and let you know what an inspiration you are to me! I randomly stumbled upon the Biggest Loser while flipping through shows on Hulu a few weeks ago. THANK GOODNESS I randomly clicked on season 11 as I am not sure if any of the other seasons would have been as enlightening to me. Seeing where you are today, how far you have come and that you have been able to maintain your goals has given me so. much. hope. I am just starting out very close to where you guys were when you started the show… i’m in my 30’s, at Olivia’s exact starting weight and I also have PCOS and want children. Seeing your continued success lets me know it’s possible and makes me want it for myself. After watching your season, I looked into applying for Biggest Loser myself but unfortunately don’t have a partner that would be able to join me so it looks like I am doing this on my own. Which is fine, I feel like things have ‘clicked’ for the first time in my life and I feel so inspired to fight for my goals. I have just started a complete overhaul of my life. I am on week 2 of Whole30, I rid my pantry and fridge of ALL food that will get in the way of my success and I have started exercising 6 days a week. Anyway, got a little sidetracked there, I just basically wanted to let you know that you guys are still an inspiration and are still touching peoples lives. Congrats on your continued success! It’s just what I needed to see. Keep it up girls! You are fierce!
