I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

I started the Take Shape for Life program in August 2007. I weighed 288 lbs and felt desperate to find a way to control what seemed so uncontrollable to me. I had tried every diet I knew of. I was tired of watching others live. I realized life is not meant to be a spectator sport. The first week of the program was hard but watching the scale go down each day made me recognize that this plan was different, this one I knew I could do. The structure of the program let me know exactly what to eat and when! I set mini goals in the beginning because I wasn't sure I could get all the way to a healthy BMI, it seemed so distant and so slim, but as I reached those mini goals I knew I could take it all the way to slim and trim and beyond. I reached my goal in just a bit over a year . This is a life long journey and during the weight loss phase and beyond we need support to continue such changes, for that you need a coach and a support team. I lost 165 lbs and have maintained a size 4 for over 2.5 years. I know and love this program and would love to help you get to living instead of watching.
