Two years ago back in 2015 Renee Everhart weighed in at 310 lbs. “At one point I saw 318 on the scale but I don’t claim that because I don’t have documentation,” Renee told us. Today she’s but a shadow of what she once was. Active. Running. Weightlifting.

On the upper & lower right Renee at her heaviest of 310 pounds. Through diet, exercise and commitment, she’s dropped 130 pounds. On the upper left Renee with her friend Sarah Works at the Face The Forest race about two weeks ago in Lynchburg, Virginia. Renee continues on her weightloss and fitness journey.

So with 130 pounds now in the rearview mirror Renee says it’s about improving on what she’s already done. “Working on my muscle tone and strength. I have about 30 more pounds I’d like to lose, but if I’m happy and healthy I’ll be good with that too. With what I do as a firefighter, I and my team depend on me. So just working on becoming the best me!”

Congrats on the fitness Renee and see you on the trail!
