Suzanne Mendonca is a 26-year-old New York police officer from Franklin Square, New York.
Mendonca is one tough NYPD cop who had yet to meet a challenge she couldn't conquer – with the exception of her weight. The feisty Mendonca is the typical "Monday dieter" who fails by mid-week, only to start again by the following Monday. But she is now motivated to lose weight for her wedding so that she can wear the dress of her dreams. But she acknowledges that chocolate is her weakness -- and temptation will be her greatest obstacle.
