At 247 lbs, I felt the real me was trapped in an overweight person’s body and I couldn’t get out. Now, I’m able to look in the mirror and smile.
I am a mother of four children and I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancies. I managed to lose the weight until the third child; trying to lose weight at age 40 was an entirely different ball game.
I started becoming depressed, ashamed, and embarrassed with my weight gain. I started to isolate myself from people who knew me when I was thin. I finally took a good look at myself and realized that I wasn’t trapped; this was my body and I needed to figure out how to lose the weight and keep it off.
I started researching programs online and read so many positive reviews about Medifast. The success stories motivated me and made me want to be on that side, telling everyone how I lost the weight.
I started the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan on May 9, 2009, and lost 19 lbs in four weeks! I went from 247 lbs to 147 lbs in nine months; it seemed like the weight just fell off.*
Now I can get up on my horse without my husband’s help into the saddle. I can chase my kids without being completely winded. Now I am on the other side, telling everyone how I lost the weight?with Medifast!
*Results not typical. You should not expect to experience these results. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan is up to 2 to 5 lbs per week.
