Hattiesburg church hosts conference with former “Biggest Loser” contestant

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Temple Baptist Church Women's Ministry held a brunch and conference Saturday morning with Abby Rike.

Dozens of women from around the area attended the event to listen to former 'Biggest Loser' contestant Abby Rike's testimony.

Rike lost her husband and children in a fatal car accident in 2006, and it wasn't until three years later that she decided there was more living to do and went on NBC's hit reality series "The Biggest Loser" and lost 100 pounds.

As Rike continues her healthy lifestyle she feels compelled to share with others what she's experience firsthand and how she is a living example that even in your darkest hour, there is always hope.

"I want people to know that you can know joy despite hideous circumstances," said Abby Rike. "It doesn't matter what's going on in your life, there is hope for the hopeless."
