Hi I'm Blaine Cotter

I'm a Father. I love my Wife. I was not the Biggest Loser. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 kids. I am married to a wonderful woman that has to put up with me all the time. After 10 years I am still going to college but will be done soon. I was on NBC's the Biggest Loser and lost over 100 pounds and will probably for the rest of this life deal with weight. I love apple computer, iphone, ipad, and I know I talk about them too much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. If I find myself unhappy (which I have from time to time in life) I can turn to my Heavenly Father and live by Christ's teachings and I am happier. I at one point in my life did not care much about the church or living by its teachings and I simply was not as happy as when I did choose to live by the teachings of the church. I know it is the church on this earth that is all truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching it to my children. I also teach it to the other children in our congregation. Seeing such young boys and girls know who Jesus is and what he did for us helps my faith in him to increase. I try to live my faith everyday by the example I set for others. It is an example of how to be truly happy and I am lucky to have that in my life.
