“At the beginning of 2015, I was 55 years old, weighed 224 pounds, and felt hopeless. In nearly 30 years of obesity, I had tried every diet, yet the surgical options scared me. My size caused me to miss out on my own life–declining to attempt Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica, being publicly shamed/banned from riding a trail horse with my daughter on vacation–even having to wait all alone for hours while the rest of our traveling family made memories hiking the mountains of Bavaria.
I felt isolated in a self-imposed prison. Finally, when my health began to deteriorate in my mid-50s, and multiple medications invaded my life, enough was enough. I swallowed my pride and turned to my friend who was a health coach, desperate for a lifestyle overhaul. With her support and an amazing optimal health program that taught me that vegetables are nutritious AND delicious, I am not only 80 pounds lighter, but my lab work is now normal, I can manage stairs again, and I even crossed off my bucket list of a 5K! I am finally living the life of freedom I wished for decades to have; if only I had known about such a program when my children were young! So now, four years later, I thank God daily for this do-over to live an active life with my three grandchildren!”
