Check out what Melinda has to say about her life altering transformation!
“He Who Has A “WHY ?“ Can Endure any “HOW ?”
My testimony…. At 46 yrs. of age I found myself at a doctor’s office with a torn meniscus to my knee. I was 296 lbs. and on meds for high blood pressure and other health issues. The doctor looked at me and said,” There is nothing I can do for you. You’re fat and you know what you need to do.” He left the room and the nurse handed me a prescription for pain meds. I said, “ I can’t live my life on these! That’s it?”. I left crying and hurt. I found a new doctor and waited 2 months to get an appointment to see him. He was one of the top 10 joint replacement doctors in the country. He changed my life! I was severely obese and needed a knee replacement. He said he would help me. He connected me with a health coach and told me her weight loss story. “Give her a call,” he told me. I went to my car and cried. I thought….” I can’t do this… I just know I will fail.” The next day I told myself to just jump in with both feet and see what happens. I made that call to the health coach, I was scared, but after our talk I felt empowered to change my life and knowing I would have a vast support group was everything to me. I started in November of 2017 and lost 94 lbs. A few months later, it was time to have arthroscopic knee surgery. I knew I needed my health coach and support group during this difficult time. I called my heath coach and got back on program. I have recovered from knee surgery now, I’m eating well, and I feel Great. I can’t wait to start exercising again. I love my support group. I’m so moved by hearing their personal testimonials of health and weight loss. “
So proud of you Melinda!!
