Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla’s shared that she ballooned up to 178 pounds after giving birth to her daughter, Isabella. She was much bigger than she was during pregnancy, and even weighed heavier than her husband, Robin Padilla.
Apparently, motherhood had taken a toll on her body.
The reason was, in order to provide an sufficient supply of breast milk for her daughter, Mariel had to eat more than usual. Before she knew it, her weight had shot up higher than she ever expected. When she finally realized, she said she felt like she had lost herself. “I felt like I wasn’t myself anymore because I couldn’t see her anymore,” Mariel says.
To fight this problem, Mariel underwent different programs with Marie France to cut off the post-natal weight and she slowly regained a sense of confidence again. She began her weight loss program with Plasti-Dermi Treatment (PDT), which helps break down stubborn fat. Physique Inch-Loss helped tone her skin and cut excess inches, and FMS Elite melted fat by speeding up calorie-burning process.
Additionally, two other treatments she revealed are the Thermo Magnetic Pulse, a fat-reducing, body-recontouring, skin-tightening slimming solution, and the Endermologie+, which Mariel likens to a hard massage. Eventually, months after constantly undergoing different treatments, she is more than 40 pounds lighter and slimmer than she was at her heaviest.
“But I knew FAT IS NOT FOREVER! I was not going to let that be the new me,” she noted.
The pictures come after Mariel lost 40 pounds through beauty company Marie France’s non-invasive weight loss program. She shared a photo of her body before and after the program, and her new figure shows off a trimmer waist and thinner arms and legs.
