Country girl gets eliminated from 'The Biggest Loser'

Twenty-one-year-old Megan Stone of Missouri was pushed and pushed by her trainer, Bob Harper, throughout the most recent episode of NBC's 'The Biggest Loser.' She got up before the rest of the contestants on the show to get in an extra run on the treadmill and went to bed after her fellow contestants just so she could burn a few extra hundred calories on the stationary bike. However, that wasn't enough to keep her safe from elimination. Stone fell below the yellow line along with youth pastor Mark Cornelison of Texas. When the rest of the players were asked which of the two contestants below the yellow line should be sent home, most of the votes were cast in favor of Megan.

"All I can say is I'm bummed that I got sent home," said Stone. "Regardless of how hard you work, you could be going home. Never once did I think I was safe."

Since losing weight on the ranch and at home, Stone has been able to enjoy her passion for horseback riding once again.

"The first time I really got to ride my horse again, I was in tears. It was so much easier than I remember it being, which I guess is because I'm more fit," explained Stone.

This country girl has also gotten engaged since her time on the ranch and is planning a September wedding where fellow 'Biggest Loser' contestant Conda will be one of her bridesmaids.

"I feel America hasn't given Conda a fair chance. Everyone has a different approach to this journey. America shouldn't be so judgmental," said Stone. "She's a great mother and great motivator and I have nothing negative to say about her. She speaks her mind and that's it."

As Megan continues her weight loss journey at home, she says she makes sure to always start her day off with a run.

"I wake up at 7 or 8 in the morning and I run a 5K in my neighborhood. Then I eat breakfast and start working with the horses. I eat lots of little healthy meals constantly throughout the day and after dinner I meet with a personal trainer," explained Stone.

When asked who she thought could end up being this season's 'Biggest Loser," Stone was vague.

"I don't know. It's anyone's guess. I'm happy for whoever gets it."

To see who will be eliminated next, tune into 'The Biggest Loser' Tuesday nights at 8 p.m.
