At 220 pounds, borderline diabetic, and hypertensive, Marlene knew that some changes had to be made to her lifestyle. Determination was her new game plan, as she had a burning desire to look better in her clothes, be energized, and gain control of her appetite. It took her 6 months on her new plant-based journey and exercise routine to lose the weight, and regain her strength and vigor, and determination to live.
