Marie Pearl before Biggest Loser 2013 Season 15
Marie Pearl from "Biggest Loser 2013" is one of the contestants in Season 15 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is a senior staff accountant at a community college in Springfield, Missouri.

30-year-old Marie Pearl, now 249 pounds, says she can't remember a time when she didn't struggle with her weight. Born in Sioux City, Iowa, and raised in Ash Grove, Missouri, Marie is the middle child of three daughters. Bad eating habits, combined with a lack of exercise and an inability to cope with stress, led to her lifetime weight struggles. She has been very accomplished in her professional life, earning a bachelor's and master's degree in accounting from Missouri State University, and she currently works as a senior staff accountant.

Married for six years, she has tried unsuccessfully to conceive for the last four years, which her doctor attributes to her weight. Marie has also been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), and her primary motivation for coming on the show is to get healthy and start a family with her husband. "After being blessed with many successes throughout my life, I am finally ready to focus on the one failure that has held me back from completely loving the woman I am," she says. "I hope to gain self-confidence and love myself inside and out so that I can be the woman — and hopefully, the mother — I've always dreamed of being."

She looks forward to being much more active once she loses the weight and enjoying all the physical activities she couldn't participate in previously.
