Host of Extra and recent Dancing With The Stars contestant Maria Menounos has a bikini body most women would die for, but it took a lot of hard work and motivation on her end to achieve her fit physique.
Maria graces the cover of Shape magazine this month as the inspiration for achieving that toned bikini body for summer, and she tells us from experience her struggles with weight gain and her transformation after.
“I gained 40 pounds in college,” explained Maria. “I left the nest and I left all the healthy cooking at home…I found like pounds of baklava.”
So in honor of all her hard work and Shape cover, Extra is asking fans, “Who keeps you moving to achieve your weight loss goals?” in a Twitter contest running until Friday.
