Marilyn Stewart

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably noticed that Marilyn Stewart isn’t the woman she once was. In June 2008, just a week before Round One of our Biggest Loser Challenge, Marilyn started a diet and exercise regimen that’s paid off in more ways than winning Round Two’s individual category. Stewart has lost 46 pounds since June through walking, some running, and watching what she eats.

She says she’s not counting calories, she’s just being sensible. So if you’re looking for tips or inspiration, ask Stewart for some weight loss pointers.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the challenge!
