From Obese to Cover Girl: A Conversation with Tosca Reno

Living Your Life with Lianne Laing – Ep. 2

Happy Day After Valentines Day! I’ve never been a fan of the Hallmark holiday so why do I bring the concept of love into this newsletter? You’ll realize it once you’ve listened to my podcast with New York Times Best Selling Author Tosca Reno.

Tosca was one of those guests I was very excited to meet when she first came to the set of CTV Morning Live. I had seen her Oxygen Magazine covers, flipped through her Eat Clean best sellers and googled her name more than once. Even in my late 20’s, 30’s and now 40’s I aspired to keep the youthful energy, mentality and physique she carried with her into her 40’s and now late 50’s. There was an immediate connection for us both and the start to a beautiful friendship. Tosca was a true trooper driving over 14 hours in a brutal snowstorm to make it to Ottawa for the podcast. She was also the first person I called when I was looking to create my rock star lineup for the Wellness Cruise I am hosting with Expedia Cruise Ship Centers of Ottawa in August of 2019. She jumped on board right away and I was invigorated by her energy, experience and excitement.

As we make our way from A-Z and cover the story of her transition from obese to fitness cover girl, all in her 40’s, you realize her journey is a love story. A love she owed to herself and her daughters, and one that blossomed into a remarkable journey with her husband and business partner Robert Kennedy. There are twists and turns, roadblocks and cliff dives that keep her story moving and so compelling! I hope you are able to take something from her story, and use it as the fuel you need to make the changes you desire.

Over the course of the podcast you will want to toss the sugar, break out the spandex and pull out the Kleenex. First and for most its the reminder that the greatest love story… always within yourself
