She also had a dream to one day open a dance studio for the less fortunate. TLC viewers got to experience Marie and follow her weight loss journey on the show.

Marie started her journey on the TLC show weighing 700 pounds, but while there, she did not lose the weight that she was intended to, so she later took matters into her own hands and managed to lose an impressive amount of weight.

After exiting the show, the star sued Megalomedia for mental health issues, drama and stress caused, saying they made her eat huge amounts of food to paint the picture of a person struggling to keep her diet in check.

Others who've sued the production company on similar claims include David Bolton who featured on season 6, sued the company for negligence, saying they did not cater to the contestant's mental health.
