Sonya Jones was a star softball player at Greenville University and became known nationwide for her appearance on season 16 of the television show “The Biggest Loser.”
She lost 144 pounds during the show and that physical transformation changed her life.
Jones has written a book, “44 Lessons From A Loser,” which focuses on her life, and experiences on the TV show. 44 is her favorite number, being the uniform number she wore at Greenville University and as a semi-pro player.
She told us she wanted the book to feel like a conversation between you and her at a coffee shop. She wanted each story to have a life lesson that helps to always see the silver lining in each situation.
