I couldn’t believe it when the doctor weighed me (no, I had not weighed in a long time). He told me to lose some weight or risk being bed-ridden and living a shorter life. I was really scared, and being on 22 medications plus using a CPAP at night to sleep, made me even more determined. I had tried to lose weight before and had been successful to some degree, but never learned how to keep it off. I worked with a doctor to get started, and lost a total of 150 pounds. Along the way with stress and a loved one dying of cancer I started slowly regaining. I knew it was time to find a way to get back on track and get to a healthy place. I was invited to a fashion show at Metabolic and while I was there I realized that not only were these people being very successful, but it would be a great place to work. While I lost a lot of weight on my own, I could not reach my goal weight on my own. After being stalled for a year, I started the MRC program and lost 34 pounds. I was shocked that after 25 years of struggling with my weight, this actually worked! For the first time in my adult life I had a healthy BMI. I could wear the smallest size clothes that I had worn in decades, and I felt and looked years younger. My family has a history of heart disease and diabetes. Having lost a sister at 36, as well as a brother at 41, this certainly gave me a better chance to live a long healthy life. I could actually fly without a seat extension and I could cross my legs! This may seem like trivial things to some, but not to the person who has been embarrassed on a plane by having to ride in the back where there no seatbelts! While I was proud of my success, I knew now that I could be an even better version of myself. After watching and learning from my clients, and my training at MRC, I had the confidence and courage to actually become THIN, a word I never thought would describe me! I finally felt strong enough and I lost my last 26 pounds. My cravings have stopped and my body fat is in a healthy range. I feel better than I have in years, and I am in control. That is very empowering! And to make it even better, for almost 8 years I have been able to help others and watch lives be changed! If you tried and failed, as I did many times, what I can tell you is: Try THIS Program. See what a difference it makes when there is someone there to guide you all though your journey, you no longer need to do it alone!
