Conner Rensch before and after her weight loss.

Conner Rensch of Omaha appeared on Inside Edition last week to share her 130-pound weight-loss story. The 26-year-old's story went viral after she wrote a guest essay for about winning a figure competition the first time she wore a bikini in public.

"I have stretch marks and scars," she told IE. She calls the marks "battle wounds" and said "they tell a story and that is beautiful."

Rensch says the marks are a "daily reminder of the battle I won and (am) struggling with."
