Rachel Oliver inspires
February 21, 2012
Charleston Southern University kicked off “Body Image Week” Monday with special guest speaker Rachel Oliver tonight at 5:00 p.m. in the Gold Room. Oliver shed 161 pounds on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition last summer.
She inspired those in attendance to get healthy adding, “I am not done yet,” she told Good Morning America. “I am a work in progress. This is all about balance. That’s what I’m doing right now is finding that balance.”
At one point, Oliver weighed 399 pounds. She lost 30 pounds before the show and 161 more during her appearance on the show.
Charleston Southern’s “Body Image Week” continues all week. The schedule includes:
- Tuesday: Free health screenings and “Boot Camp”
- Wednesday: Zumba class
- Thursday: Kinesiology Club Boot Camp
