'Biggest Loser' Star

Sued By Fitness Company

You Can't Get Fat Again!!!

As if re-gaining a bunch of weight wasn't bad enough, former "Biggest Loser" star Tara Costa is now being SUED for porking up again ... and it could cost her a lot of money, TMZ has learned.

FC Online Marketing -- which owns ILoveKickboxing.com -- has filed a lawsuit against Costa claiming it entered into a fitness promotional agreement with the reality star ... but she didn't hold up her end of the bargain.

The deal breaker ... FCOM  says Costa -- who famously lost 155 POUNDS on "The Biggest Loser: Couples 2" back in 2009 -- had re-gained "far too much weight" in 2011 to represent the brand in photo shoots and public appearances.

FCOM says it paid Costa's foundation $45,000 in exchange for her image and likeness ... but since she got fat again, her image has lost all value to the company.

FCOM is now suing Costa for breaching the don't-get-fat agreement, demanding unspecified damages.

For what it's worth ... from Costa's recent Twitter pics, it appears she's back down to her fighting weight (or close to it) but FCOM insists the damage is already done. Attempts to reach Costa were not successful.

Did she like have another baby or something? I think that could be an excuse. But all in all weight loos should not just be about dieting, but also about changing your lifestyle.

Did anyone even look at her twitter pics...recently. Like 2013. Jesus, looking at various articles about this woman, I don't know who is about this bull****, but when there are allegations of both parties trying to sue each other...hmm....makes me want to use my brain. (Unlike some of you reddit users, I mean. Well.) Money, the root of all damn issues.

98% of all the contestants on the show have gained back all of their weight plus more. It doesn't make sense how they go on the show and cry and say how being fat has ruined their life, then once they lose it all they decide to start eating like an animal again. Someone can give me 45,000 and tell me not to be a fat ass, I'd accept that challenge
