Earlier this week, The Biggest Loser crowned a winner, Danni, in the season 14 finale of the NBC show. But the newly-size 4 Danni isn't the only contestant who slimmed down and got healthy in the process. Below, you'll find runner-up Jeff's weight loss success story, in his own words.

Name: Jeff Nichols

Age: 25

Height: 5'10"

Before Weight: 388 pounds

How I Gained It: My weight gain started from a young age when I was put on steroids to help fight off the asthma that I had as a child. My father passed away in 2005, when I was a senior in high school, which quickly took me from a chubby teen to becoming very overweight. I headed off to college soon after my dad's passing. Three a.m. meals, little to no exercise and living a very sedentary lifestyle were some of the biggest contributors to my weight gain.
