Hi, I’m Marni :)
During: 115 lbs
I’ve been struggling with body image and weight loss since I was in high school. I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 17 and it caused me to get to my highest weight of 150lbs. After 2 years of getting my body down to 130lbs with exercise and dieting, I was able to get my PCOS under control and haven’t had to go back to the doctors since. I hit a plateau with my motivation and dieting and I finally decided to get serious about living a healthier and more fit life style. I’m down to the weight I set as my goal over 5 years ago and I couldn’t be more happy and proud. I try to get to the gym at least 4 days a week and I eat lots of lean meats, veggies and fruits. I’m working on maintaining, toning and building muscle at the moment. I hope to train to run a few 5ks and eventually a big marathon for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society to raise money in honor of my dad who passed away from cancer in ‘09. He was one of my biggest inspirations and to the day motivates me to keep moving forward. I know he is happy and proud of me.
