"At 35, I look better than I have ever looked," Hadden told Us, which is saying something considering she's a former beauty-pageant participant.
"I've always had an enormous bottom, so it's nice to put on size-4 pants! My husband thinks I look awesome."
Hadden isn't the only one whose weight-loss via The Biggest Loser is paying dividends with her significant other, as fourth-place finisher Isabeau Miller said she's also enjoying a more comfortable relationship with her boyfriend of two years.
"I feel I can live our life together much more fully than I would ever be able to at 300 pounds," Miller told Us.
The 21-year-old from Franklin, TN began the competition as the heaviest female contestant in The Biggest Loser history at 298 pounds, but was able to shed 113 pounds for a 37.92% weight-loss percentage. She's been able to keep the weight off thanks to a two-hour-a-day, five-days-a-week workout regimen and an 1,800 calorie diet.
"I look in the mirror and don't recognize my body," Miller told Us.
Hollie Self, a 28-year-old who finished third, began the competition weighing 255 pounds and lost 105 pounds for a 41.18% weight-loss percentage.
Self recently relocated from her home in Phoenix, AZ to Los Angeles, CA and is "excited to wear halter tops" as she lives the single life.
"Before I felt I was this big, round shape," she told Us. "I'm proud of my body. I know what it's been through."
