Marie's Ageless Beauty

 "When it comes to beauty, it's very simple to me. Exercise, sleep is important."

Her Weight Loss Struggle

Marie once opened up about her struggle with weight loss and why it was vital for her to shed the extra weight she accumulated in her younger working years.

She explained that she received a lot of criticism on her added weight from people, but the one that hit the most was from her son. She recalled her son saying to her,

"Mom, you're all we have. We can't lose you. I don't want to hurt your feelings, but you've got to lose weight."


Osmond revealed that she spent four months dieting and following the carefully-prepared food schemes from Nutrisystem, a platform she credits for their effective diet/weight loss plan.
