Will power and dedication made it possible for her to drop all that weight in just two years, which is pretty remarkable.

She managed to do it on her own--without going on the Biggest Loser or any of those weight loss reality shows. Making this sort of drastic change on your own is the hardest part and she managed to overcome it.

"It's only two shakes a day, and then the other three meals that I'd have would be just regular food, so I wasn't limiting myself to the shakes," she revealed. Also, once she got used to her walking exercises, Rhonda started biking. Her "mini goals" made a big difference. "For me to be under 200 pounds, I never thought that would be possible," she said.

Now she runs marathons and completes triathlons! This woman is a superhero. She is inspiring so many people to live healthier lives. The best part is that this woman looks alive.
