Mary attributes much of her success to staying accountable through her weigh-ins with Adriana, Peggy’s Wednesday night spin classes, and having the support of her BTF family. “I look forward to going daily and meeting up with friends, I am happier and I feel great.” Her journey has just begun and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store. Congrats on the accomplishment, Mary!
