Emmy Lou Munoz from "Biggest Loser 2014" is one of the contestants featured in Season 16 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is a substitute teacher from Woodson, Texas.

At 32 years old and 260 pounds, Emmy Lou Munoz is a married mother of two whose primary motivation for going on the show is to get fit so she can be active with her children. She says, "In 2011, when I could not catch my then 4-year-old son, I knew I needed to change my life."

Overweight her whole life, Munoz was often bullied because of her size. Not knowing how to handle the emotions, she used food as comfort. She was born and raised in Woodson, Texas, the youngest of five children. A high school track and field star, she won district and advanced to regionals in discus all four years of high school. Munoz was in the top eight for regionals her senior year, and also played varsity volleyball for four years and softball for eight years.

Marrying right after high school, she left the world of sports to start her family, which now includes a 10-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. She looks forward to losing the weight and being a healthier role model to her children, rejoining the co-ed softball league in her community and one day running a half marathon.
