Before starting the program, Alan weighed over 500 pounds. After joining Medifast, Alan is now half the size. Over the past three years, Alan has been astounded by the progress he has made and how his body has changed. The counselors have really helped him stay on track through their guidance and encouragement. Now Alan enjoys going shopping and wearing clothes that didn’t even fit well when he was in high school. Alan is so thankful for the team and the program that helped him not only see who he could be, but also helped him get there, and continue to be there for him every step of the way.
Alan now sees himself influencing others in his life to lose weight and be healthy. Although he never really saw himself as a role model, he can see how inspirational his excitement for the Medifast program is and how people around him are gaining the confidence to make their own health changes.
