The Story Behind Marie in Cracking the Happy Weight Code

Marie is inspired off of one of my good friends Baileigh. Baileigh never judged me on how much I weighed when I was in middle school at two-hundred eighteen pounds. When I reached my highest weight, I suffered low self-esteem, confidence, isolated myself from my friends that I formed in the sixth grade when my mother was seeking love and acceptance from the people around her and finding true love. During the time, I kept another good friend of mine named Erica who plays Emma in the book. At the time, Marie helped Alli to get in shape by walking, jogging, doing strength training exercises, and much more. Marie never quit on Alli as her weight went up and down as they trained together.
