Mid-South's Biggest Loser: Cassie Linton

Here is why she wanted to become one of The Mid-South's Biggest Losers:

"I should be selected as Mid-South's Biggest Loser, because I need to lose this weight, so I can play more with my son, and I want to do this for me. I am a single mom with a rowdy six year old and I have worked my way up the employement ladder, now an Operations Manager for a cell phone company. After I had my son, I just kept putting on more and more pounds. I cry to myself most days because I have just let myself go. I would like to lose around 75 to 100 lbs, and I am willing to do anyting to do that. I will push my self hard everyday to accomplish this goal, and I want to keep at it for the rest of life, so I will be there in the future for my son. So please choose me, I really want to do this for myself. I am 5'7" and I weigh about 252 lbs, and I want and need to lose this weight. I would love to back in a size 12 or even smaller would be so much better."
