The actress posted before and after pics on her Instagram page, revealing she’s dropped nearly 50 lbs.
“If you have been following my story’s you know how hard I have been working out with Keith Anthony to get healthy,” she wrote. “Truth Covid scares me. I checked off all the boxes, I am HIGH RISK! So I started working out at home with Keith via zoom classes and eating healthy to have a fighting chance.”
She continued, “In all honestly I also needed something to focus on have a goal. 6 months later I have lost almost 50 pounds. We have been here before. I was scared to post photos, it’s really one day at a time for me when it comes to food. But I thought, Covid isn’t over we are all sitting ducks maybe I could inspire someone ANYONE to chose to fight! Forget how amazing this dress looks.”
Marissa said she hasn’t had asthma in months, but her “anxiety is at an all-time high,” because of the state of our country.
“The hour or two a day I focus on working out my sadness turns to productive energy.” The cancer survivor added, “getting my self as strong as possible to fight it at least makes me FEEL like I am doing something . It makes me FEEL like if I can kick cancers ass I can do this too. Thank you for always being part of my YO-YO journey. I can only say Today I feel strong. Today I feel like I can do anything . Today I don’t bury my head , I will workout and email our senators wear a mask and make sure Family and friends VOTE !!”
