She won “Biggest Loser” Season 5, but Ali Vincent's weight loss journey isn't over.

The reality star, who lost 112 lbs. on the ABC show, revealed on Facebook this week that she has regained nearly all the weight.
Ali wrote that the past eight years have had their fair share of highs and lows, and that some of those struggles have gotten the better of her. “When I struggle I shut down, I feel alone, I push people away, I hide, I sleep all day, I eat, I try to feel satisfied and comforted but do nothing to allow true satisfaction or comfort.”
She later added, “I remember wondering before if I was unhappy because I was heavy or heavy because I was unhappy, I realized it didn't matter because both were true and I needed to do something about it.”

Vincent, who married Jennifer Krusing last year, continued, “When I realized this, something just clicked and I did do something about it. It's different now though, I'm not unhappy with my life, there are A LOT of GREAT things in my life. I FINALLY have a loving relationship that I trust in wholeheartedly… I'm hopefully finally going to be pregnant.”
Ali plans to shed the pounds with Weight Watchers, but she said signing up is one of hardest things she's ever done.
“I joined Weight Watchers and weighed in close to the weight I started at on 'The Biggest Loser.' I swore I would never be there again, be here again. I couldn't imagine a day again that I would weigh over 200 pounds. I feel ashamed. I feel embarrassed. I feel overwhelmed. I feel like failure.”
Ali is turning over a new leaf and has “decided to feel proud of myself again!”
“To hell with shame!” she wrote. “I've been so afraid and worried of public shame and ridicule that I've created more pain for myself than anyone else can but not anymore.”
Ali plans to lose the weight with the help of Weight Watchers, Shakeology and the DietBet game.
