I have had a weight problem since I was 11 years old. I was born with allergies and asthma that prevented me from being an active child yet still was a healthy weight until puberty hit and the pounds started piling on. I tried too many diet plans to count over the years. I took prescription diet pills that didn’t seem to do anything for me but prevent me from feeling hungry and yet didn’t seem to help my weight. I come from a very health conscious family who thought they were doing things correctly and had focused on a cholesterol lowering diet since I was a child due to my father’s own health issues. I had eaten what I thought was healthy foods all of my life. I forced myself to eat salads even though I hated them. When I would count calories, I found that I could survive on about 800 calories a day and would maintain my weight instead of losing. I would starve and do what I could to workout for a while and manage to lose a little weight but no matter what I did it would always come back.
When I found my way to Metabolic I was at my heaviest weight still after about 6 months of trying to watch what I ate and walking with a group of friends in an attempt to lose just a few pounds so that I wouldn’t have to buy clothes in a larger size. I was exhausted! Almost every day I would come home and crash on the couch and take a nap before I would do anything else or even think about dinner. When I walked into the center for a consultation all I was interested in was getting back into the clothes that I had hanging in my closet. That was it. Little did I know that Metabolic was going to be the solution that I’d been looking to find for over 20 years. I found a connection to people who didn’t just understand my struggle but had been through it and had solutions to help me.
Metabolic offered me an easy way of living without having to obsess over my foods. Metabolic offered hope that I didn’t have to be fat! I found a place that encouraged me to eat and to enjoy food! I lost 5 pounds in the first week when I’d been unable to lose that in 6 months of trying on my own. There is no feeling like seeing immediate results! I saw results every week and continual encouragement from people that were solely interested in seeing me succeed! This was a life line for me! I didn’t just lose that 20 pounds that I needed to be able to fit into the clothes in my closet… I weigh less than I ever have as an adult and I am a very happy woman!! I have energy for the first time in my life!
After having watched my results, my sister followed me to finding hope for a new life. MRC has been so fantastic for myself and my family that I wanted to share the help that I’d found with others so I became a consultant. I am here to help you on your journey to energy, hope and a new life.
