It's the season of "second chances" on NBC's "The Biggest Loser" and a Plainfield mom of three will get her chance to get healthy -- and win the $250,000 top prize.

Tanya Winfield, 41, is one of 15 contestants — including "American Idol" winner Ruben Studdard — this season. Winfield, who is COO of a Chicago-area fast-food franchise, said she wanted to get fit after seeing a family friend die of obesity-related health issues.
