Personal life[edit | edit source]
Garcia has struggled with her weight for her entire life. Diabetes runs in her family as her father has type-2 diabetes. In about 2013, Garcia discovered that she too was at risk of diabetes when she was diagnosed as prediabetic. At that point, she turned her lifestyle around by being more conscious of her diet and by exercising regularly. As of January 2016, Garcia has lost about 70 pounds since her lifestyle change.
