UND student featured on MTV reality series about weight loss

Posted on 3/1/2011

University of North Dakota freshman Kelly Sanders, a marketing student from Faribault, Minn., is being featured on the finale of MTV's reality series "I Used To Be Fat." Each week, the series focuses on one person's struggle with eating and the challenge of losing weight.

Those featured in the show are aided by tough-love personal trainers who guide them through pitfalls and triumphs on the way to reaching their individual goals. Sanders story revolves around the tendency to overeat to compensate for the death of her father.

Throughout the program, Sanders wears a UND T-shirt, showing support for her University. The show also follows Sanders to the UND campus for her first days as a freshman.

The program airs again Wednesday, March 2, at 1 p.m., and 7 p.m., on MTV (Grand Forks cable channel 64). It can also be viewed by going to the show's website at
