At 51 years old, I was feeling the symptoms of aging and hormones: I was gaining weight throughout my hips, thighs, and waist – and it wasn’t coming off as easily anymore. A bit alarmed by this realization, I begged both my primary care physician and OBGYN (both females themselves) to check my hormones. Neither of them would test me, and they simply told me, “it’s part of the aging process” and that I needed to deal with it. I was already physical and mentally miserable…and now had to add to that a high level of frustration at my physicians’ lack of support for my well-being. I was not just going to let the aging process defeat me – I was determined to get my life back.
Thank God for a former co-worker and client of MRC that shared his experience of losing weight with MRC. It all started for him with MRC’s Hormone Imbalance Test. I knew that’s just what I needed; so, I immediately made a call to MRC in a last-ditch effort to have someone listen to me, support me, validate me, and get me back to looking and feeling the way I knew I could (and deserved to) feel!
After my free consultation at the center, I was so excited and ready to get started, rebalance my hormones, and lose the weight. While I was on the program, I was surprised how much hormone, a balanced menu, and even a determined mentality could impact my weight (and my success). I actually never felt deprived (there were so many foods to choose from and endless combinations), and I found that I had so much more energy than I had felt in a long time. I was even sleeping better than I ever had!
What was most amazing to me was the support and encouragement of the staff. They were amazing. They actually listened to me, helped me, and cheered me on every step of the way to my goal. They helped me navigate my menu and were able to answer any questions that I had. My MRC menu allowed me to change my eating behaviors for the long-term (rather than a temporary or fad diet). I was able to make my own meal choices with my own foods, and the natural supplements helped me feel better and reach my goals without any crazy or unwanted side effects.
Now that I’ve reached my goal of losing 50 pounds and 50 inches, I feel so many amazing feelings: blessed, confident, thankful, healthy, and even a little sassy! I went from a size 14 to a size 4; I got my life back, and it was worth every penny to me. The only regret I have is that I didn’t know about MRC sooner! If you can relate at all to my story, then I’m telling you right now: go to MRC and get your hormones tested! Get on a balanced menu plan, have a determined mentality, and before you know it you’re going to be enjoying your life to its fullest!
Truth be told, my experience with MRC had such a profound impact on my life. It helped me improve my weight, my health, and my wellbeing. So much so that I actually decided that I wanted to do the same for others as MRC had done for me. So, I joined the MRC team and am now the Center Manager of the Greeley, CO office. I have such a passion for this program – I’m a living, breathing, real-life example that it really works – and I just want to help people get to the same point that I did and see that it is so real and it is so doable!
