If you don’t enjoy a long post, then you’re going to want to go right onpast this one! Ok...you've been warned.
2 years ago today (January 29, 2015) I, along with 19 other castmates/lifelong friends, stood on a stage in front of millions of people to see who would be crowned The Biggest Loser! If you had told me 30 minutes before I walked on to that stage that I was going to lose, I would have said “You’re Crazy!” I did everything right! I ate correctly, I exercised correctly and I gave it everything I had. So did Toma! So did Rob! The chips just didn’t fall my way that night…Toma beat me fair and square. He deserved it! He is such a hard worker and a tremendous man of integrity and honor. I learned a very valuable lesson that night. Sometimes you can do everything just right and things just don’t go your way. However, we still have a responsibility to win AND LOSE with grace, mercy, integrity and honor. Maybe some of you have done things just the right way and things haven’t gone your way. You’ve lost a job, you’ve lost a contest, you’ve lost a relationship, you’ve lost something and it hurts. I just want to take a moment to encourage you not to give up. Don’t give up on you because you’re worth it! You’re worth the battle...you’re worth the fight to keep going. Always remember that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond to it. Be people of integrity…do the right thing even when no one is looking because that’s when it truly matters.

2016 was one of the hardest years for me. It was my first full year after the show learning how to do things on my own (away from the show) and trying to figure out what worked best for me. It was difficult, I admit. But I've learned some things walking through 2016 that I thought I'd share with you today on the anniversary of our Finale. {the rest of the post is in the comments}

I can't believe it has been 11 years since this photo was taken. When I came across it the other day I wished I could go back and tell 15 year old me one thing about our relationship. I wish I had known then that the good AND difficult times ahead were equally important. The dates. The quiet movies. The first time I took his hand to hold. That first kiss. The long talks. Dinners out before there were babies. Enjoy it all. But love, and live, and forgive through the hard times too. The first fight. The sleepless nights. Bills that get overwhelming. That feeling of betrayal when the other person lets you down. It is there that relationships are strengthened the most. The hard times make you stretch in a way that will either make you worlds stronger or tear you apart. It is up to you to decide. And it is a choice that both people have to make every. single. time. When things get tough remember that it doesn't last forever. I am so thankful for this faithful, selfless, sweet cutie that grew up to be my husband. Our relationship is so so far from perfect, but a perfect God brought us together and modeled a selfless eternal love for us. The bad and the good. They are both equally necessary, and we wouldn't be able to truly appreciate one without the other.

They're real and they're spectacular! Ok, they're actually a lot of tinting, highlighter and gel.
I have come to terms with the fact that my social media life is overwhelmingly sporadic posts related to my love of shaping eyebrows and being a cat mom. While this appears annoyingly trendy and overdone (I get it) it's actually quite genuine. If you traveled back in time you would find that 7 year old Stephanie had her bedroom decorated with cat wallpaper. She rounded up the hoards of cats living outside to dress up in doll clothes and ride in her bicycle basket. 12 year old Stephanie was armed with tweezers and from that point forward looked for opportunities to shape the brows of unsuspecting friends and strangers alike. Slumber parties were a big market for this. It was 1998 and I somehow knew then brows were abused and underrated.
I say this not to tout the "I liked that band before they knew they were a band" sentiment, but just to say that if there was ever a time in life where the things I enjoy could be truly celebrated by the masses that time must be now.
One day I'll invest in someone to build my online brand, diversify my content and post at market tested times of day. Until then I see a generous portion of posts with brows and cats, a splash of Walking Dead spoilers and pinch of new hair color pics in the future.
I also just don't have the energy to learn how to use the Snap-chats at this point in time.
Love ya gals ❤😻🎉🌟✌#confessions #sugarinducedrants #longestpostever #brows #catsofinstagram

Goodbye friends! Despite many-many obstacles I finally got to a place I was supposed to spend my birthday at. Tomorrow, I begin a Vipassana meditation course in Dhamma Mandala, Myanmar. 10 days of silent meditation in the middle of nowhere surrounded by palmtrees 🌴
No phones allowed, no social media, no speaking, no interacting with others. No reading, no writing, no yoga (oh, and no killing mosquitoes). Just meditating from 5am to 9pm everyday 🙏
The entire practice is actually a mental training to develop a healthy mind.
The term Vipassana means seeing things as they really are. It is one of India's most ancient meditation techniques. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.
So friends and family, I won't be answering your messages for the next 10 days. Just know that I'm not dead, I'm simply working hard towards a healthy mind... and I'm more than excited😊

Rule your mind or it will rule you, my friends! Namaste!

He's growing up right before my eyes and my heart is trying grasp it all. This little one made me an auntie and I'll never stop unraveling the gift that is.
My Levi, today you handed me a flower out of the bouquet you gave me yesterday and said "here you go," just so I could take in the smell of fresh flowers a little longer. You said "cheers" with our morning smoothies, reminding me the celebration of a new day. We sipped lemonade in your treehouse and laughed at the wind blowing my hair, and made the coolest fort out of a big cardboard box. I watched your little feet run straight to the ocean and get soaking wet with not a care in the world. We ran around popping "bubbles on the sand" made from the waves and you thought it was the most amazing thing.

Tonight we had "dinner and a movie" In your favorite little play room. You grabbed my hand and said "dance with me auntie" and we did the "waltz" all around the kitchen and I was out of breath carrying you while laughing so hard watching the joy on your face. After we got in our Jammie's we sat outside and listened to the crickets while eating apples for a bedtime snack, and soaked up the last minutes of this full day.

My Levi, thank you for making my heart be still so it could expand for the littlest of moments. They all truly make this life full of beauty and wonder. I love you precious one. #auntiecam #bepresent #thesimplethings #dontmissit #longestpostever

Kissing TN goodbye in less than two months. Saying hello to a new life of makeup in California where I know a handful of people with no family to turn to if something goes wrong. I'm making that 36 hour drive with a car load of things & starting over. I will push to strive to make my dream come true where I won't have to make that drive back. Success is never an accident so you best believe I am going to work until I no longer have to introduce myself.
Thank you to @iambrittanylane for listening to me complain for 7 hours at a time.
Shoutout to my girl @mayabenberry for taking me under your wing, listening to me, and telling me to never give up! Look where it got you!
To anyone who isn't following their dreams, be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire & I promise you will be successful.

Look who stopped in for a haircut! First time meeting @namnamnamm in person, aka the person who changed my life completely! 3 months ago I didn't know the first thing about the gym and ate pretty much whatever I wanted. Now going to the gym is my favorite part of my day (literally gives me a high feeling and huge stress reliever) although Ive gotten so sick of eating the same thing every single day, I've gained self control and will appreciate food so much more even when this is over. My attitude has changed, I've became more confident. I loved being by myself and doing absolutely nothing all the time, now I'm not so much of a loser. Met cool people, made awesome friends. Used to be lazy now I have a hard time sitting through an entire movie.. I sleep better, wake up easier. The list goes on and on. so many little things that I never would of expected out of this lifestyle change, and so hard to explain all the emotions. So thankful that I got to start it out right with the absolute best trainer I could have ever asked for. As my prep comes to an end I never want to let him go! Thanks for putting up with me even tho I'm super annoying 🤗🍩👙👙#longestpostever #lifechanging

Ten days after my brother died I found myself living in the Caribbean with my partner who HAD to put all of his focus and energies into his school otherwise either of us being there would've been pointless. I was heartbroken from the loss my brother, not happy with my first job out of college and absolutely in the truest sense alone. I got Carl under the pretense that I would foster him during my two years on the island and then I'd find him a new foster home when I moved back to the states because I felt I needed to take care of something. This grumpy butthead laid with me as I grieved a huge loss and transformed Jake and I from partners to family. He didn't get a new foster family but instead a first class ticket back to the USA.
We miss you, Carl chicken cat 💛
Just oooonce, adopt the old cat and give him a great last leg.🐈

It may have taken 18 months but I'm finally free from the hell I was dealing with in the top picture, my skin was the first thing everyone would talk to me about and the anxiety of knowing people were looking at it was horrible. I can't thank miss @ciaraforeverliving and @biofreshskincare enough for their amazing natural products! Honestly the biggest weight off my shoulders. It terrifies me sharing this but people need to see how good these products are! Anyway, rant over! 😂🙌🏼 #biofreshskincare #biofresh #acneout #AloeVera #adultacne #excusemybrows #nomakeup #nofiltersatall #bedhead #longestpostever #notevensorry

A year ago today my 'next chapter' began. I underwent #gastricsleevesurgery in the hopes that it would bring me and my fiancé @panduhhh_o a little bundle of joy. We had been trying but due to my weight and some medical issues (PCOS and hyperplasia endometriosis) we had had no luck. I had been big my whole life. Don't not get me wrong I wasn't depressed or sad or felt like I was 'missing out' in life growing up as a big girl, but there was something I wanted so much more in my life than that extra cheese burger or that second (ok ok third) ice cream cone. Now 50kgs lighter I am healthier happier and closer than ever to our little bundle. I decided to be open about my surgery because there may be people out there who are considering doing it but are scared to ask questions. All I can tell them people is DO IT! I promise u won't regret it. I never have 😊 #longestpostever #sydneysleever #weightlossjourney #petaleeandthesleeve #fertilityjourney #wlscommunity #allforyou👶🏽

Dan has always been really good at jumping into action to help people. But today he really went above and beyond. He helped push and jump one little old lady and two rough young men in the span of 20 minutes. I was hesitant to ask if they needed help both times - I just wanted to get my couple mile run in! But I was thankful for Dan's eagerness to counteract my reticence. •
The little old lady kept saying "Thank you! Nobody helps nobody anymore! I knew Jesus would send you!"

I've been thinking a lot lately about what it means to be a good and moral person outside of religion. Sam Harris and his podcasts have helped me a lot. •
"Consider it: every person you have ever met, every person will suffer the loss of his friends and family. All are going to lose everything they love in this world. Why would one want to be anything but kind to them in the meantime?" - Sam Harris
