Guest Bio: Marilyn McKenna, Author
Marilyn McKenna In 2007, after being morbidly obese for decades, Marilyn McKenna began her journey into weight loss and fitness. Since then, she has lost 120 pounds and transformed herself into an athlete who runs marathons, competes in triathlons, practices yoga, and participates in a wide variety of athletic pursuits.

Marilyn received her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Washington. There she met Rob McKenna, to whom she has been married for more than 28 years. During her husband's career as an elected official on the King County (Seattle) Council and as Washington State's attorney general, Marilyn was a very public political spouse who was hiding a very private pain.

Now, she is a passionate advocate for wellness, committed to helping others who want to transform their lives and the lives of their families through healthy eating and physical activity. She and her husband currently reside in Bellevue, Washington. They have raised four children, who of course never eat anything that's bad for them.
