Erik Chopin’s season 3 transformation was one of the most dramatic in the history of “The Biggest Loser,” as he went from 407 pounds to 193 pounds. (185 kgs to 87 kgs)

But when trainer Bob Harper heard that Erik, whom he had grown especially close to, had gained all the weight back, he dropped in for a surprise visit. “I put some weight on, obviously. A few months ago I was at 368, which was very close to where I was at the start of ‘The Biggest Loser.’

Bob understood how hard it was to keep the weight off. For many people it is a constant struggle, he said.Erik said that he got down, knowing how hard it was to lose the weight the first time and knowing that he’d have to go through that process again.

Bob told him that he shouldn’t go back to the “strict life,” instead finding a balance he’d be able to do for the rest of his life.

“You know how to take it off and you know how to put it on — what you don’t know is how to live your everyday life,” Bob said.

Bob told Erik that he couldn’t bring home food treats for his family because he was sabotaging his own health. They then went to a local boxing gym, where Erik planned to start a regular fitness regime.

“I think about my journey on ‘The Biggest Loser.’ I come in a 407-pound guy, I lose over 200 pounds, get to this weight and the story should end there and I maintain my weight,” Erik said. “But my story is different. I gain the weight and fail and my story ends there. But my story doesn’t end there. I’m going to lose that weight. I’m starting off as the biggest guy, losing a tremendous amount of weight, struggling and figuring some things out, then lose it again and then maintaining it.”
