Our Weight Loss Story
Our story isn't entirely different from countless numbers of others. The difference is, we are writing a new ending by restoring our Health... and ultimately our happiness!
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, then. No wonder he proposed 7 weeks after I moved to town! Something to celebrate? Let’s eat! Feel sad? Let’s eat! Happy, Anxious, Excited,...20% chance of rain? Let’s eat!!
Do you see a pattern? So do we, but it took thirteen years for us to break the cycle. We decided we were so sick and tired of being sick and tired. Plus, we didn’t even recognize ourselves anymore. We would see photos of us together and it was...well, shocking.
So, here’s the good news. Since this past Summer, we have lost a combined 100lbs! For real. That’s an entire other person right there. We started our journey with exercise alone, but quickly realized that there was no way we could ever out-exercise our poor eating habits. Then, a friend of mine, who is a nurse, introduced us to OPTAVIA. I had been following her health journey, and after witnessing her incredible transformation (-77lbs to date!!), I knew that I wanted that for us, too.
How about you? Did you find yourself nodding in agreement as you read along? When is the last time you felt incredible? Can you remember the last time you went to your closet and picked out what you wanted to wear, instead of what you “could” wear? What would you do with all of the extra money that you didn’t have to spend on prescriptions for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, acid reflux...?
It can be better. Your health can be restored, and if you will let us, we can help.
We help people achieve Lifelong Transformation, one Healthy Habit at a Time™
We recommend that you contact your healthcare provider before starting and throughout your OPTAVIA weight loss journey, especially if you are taking medications (e.g., diabetes medications, high blood pressure medications, Coumadin (warfarin), lithium, thyroid medications etc.)
Do not use the OPTAVIA Program if you are pregnant. If you have a serious acute or chronic illness (e.g., heart attack, diabetes, cancer, liver disease, kidney disease, anorexia, bulimia, etc.) do not use the OPTAVIA Program until your healthcare provider says you have recovered or that your condition is stabilized. The Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan™ is NOT appropriate for teens (13 to 18 years of age), sedentary older adults (65 years and older), nursing mothers, people with gout, some people with diabetes, and those who exercise more than 45 minutes per day. For special medical or dietary needs, refer to our program guides online.
NOTE: Rapid weight loss may cause gallstones or gallbladder disease for those at high risk. While adjusting to intake of a lower-calorie level and diet changes, some people may experience lightheadedness, dizziness or gastrointestinal disturbances. These usually are temporary.
