Meet Debbie! Debbie started as client at our Wichita Falls, TX location in 2003. She lost 50 pounds and has maintained her loss ever since! In 2010 she joined the team and now helps others reach their goals. We interviewed Debbie to find out some of her secrets to success.
What has improved in your life since losing weight?
I love, love, did I say love my grandkids! After losing 50 pounds I can keep up with them, have fun with them, and be the energetic grandmother they deserve. I also feel so much better about the way I look, I am proud of what I see when I look in the mirror.
What advice would you give to others who are considering losing weight?
For me this is a lifestyle. I lost this weight in 2003 and I have turned this into a way of life. It is not a diet, I think of this as the optimal way to live. This kind of thinking made the difference for me, it allowed me to keep the weight off!
What's your favorite MRC recipe?
Food has to taste good! I love lots of great recipes but my favorite is the Party Meatballs. I make them for dinner, I take them to parties, and I love to bring them to the Center for samples and in cooking classes. Two of my other favorites are Texas Chili and Veggie Pizza, both are excellent!
What's the most rewarding part of your career in weight loss?
Watching others change their lives and getting to be a part of that transformation.
