Jeannie: "At 210+ pounds, I had spent 15-20 years trying every weight loss plan and diet; reading self improvement books; doing twelve step work.... I couldn’t remember a time when seeing photographs of myself or walking by a mirror didn’t cause me to cringe in shame I just couldn’t believe that this size 22 woman was me. But nothing I tried to change about my appearance worked for any length of time. Even exercising 5 days a week changed nothing. In total desperation, I had gone so far as to get quotes for lap band surgery. Fortunately (and I only say that now), it was not financially feasible. I started this amazing program in at the first of last year and nothing has been the same since! The simplicity, straight-forwardness, affordability, as well as the consistent weight loss and high energy level I felt, made the days fly by. By fall, I had reached my goal!!!! Actually, I surpassed it because I thought I was being unrealistic to strive for a size 14, and in November I was a size 6-8! I have more energy than I can ever remember having, even when I was much younger, and I never want to go back to life before."
Debbie: "My husband and I have been married for over 35 years. We pretty much do everything together. We gain weight together, we lose weight together, and we gain the weight back together. Our lives have been a yo-yo! Then our daughter referred us to a health coach who actually showed us how to create healthy habits to live by, changing our lives forever.. Together we lost over 170 pounds! I lost 70 pounds and went from a size 16 to a size 6 pant. I was finally able to go into a retail store that never carried my size and have fun shopping again. I am now very confident when I go out and yes, I have been having lots of fun replacing my entire wardrobe!"
Craig: "I have been married for over 35 years. In that time, I had gained over 100 pounds. I was already on medications because of my weight, struggling to put on my socks and having a harder and harder time fitting into restaurant booths. The problem was, I had already tried almost every diet known to man and had no idea what to do next. That is when my daughter after giving birth to my first grandchild, introduced me to a health coach that put me on a program, which has changed my life. I lost over 100 pounds and I am no longer on my high blood pressure or cholesterol medications! I can honestly say I feel better in my 50’s than I did in my 40’s. I am so thankful I had someone care enough about me to tell me I was out of control and something need to change. Thank you baby girl, daddy loves you!!"
Trey & Jenn B: "In June of 2009 we began our journey. Trey was in treatment for an autoimmune disease and had spent a year and a half on chemo and steroids trying to beat it. He knew that he was not in a healthy state and that the foods that he was putting in were not helping him create health, so he knew that is was time for a change. He really wanted to see what his body could do to heal itself if he were closer to a healthy BMI. Jenn was not ready for a change. She was very reluctant to start the program because of some of her concepts about what a "diet" should look like. And she had given up hope. Hope that she would be anything but a morbidly obese wife and mother. She agreed to start with Trey, on the same day, so that she would not be the reason that he failed. Trey dropped 105 pounds and Jenn shed 187 pounds. After losing our weight our activity level sky rocketed. Trey started coaching our daughter’s soccer team, trained for a marathon (injury prevented participation), and has competed in the Wild Canyon Games three times. Jenn has ran 5K’s, 10K’s, a half marathon, obstacle races and participated twice in the Wild Canyon Games. We now consider ourselves ‘half the couple’ we once were and are not looking back. Trey has maintained for over 3 years and Jenn has maintained for 2 years 11 months."
Sarah M: "One afternoon, I was with my 7 month old daughter and as I watched her happily playing. Because I was the heaviest I had ever been, I couldn’t play on the floor with my daughter without having a difficult time getting up from the carpet. I wanted to be the mom that had energy, joy, and could keep up with an energetic little one! About that time is when I found a program that completely changed my life. I began the program thinking this was just another “diet” but soon realized that this was a path toward finding my true self…the person that was inside my overweight body this whole time. Through my journey I lost 101 lbs! I had an immense amount of energy, my cravings went away, and I was filled with joy. The best part for me was being able to play on the floor with my daughter and not struggle in getting up! Losing the weight wasn’t the end…I learned through this amazing program how to maintain my weight and create habits that led me to a happy, healthier me!"
Stacy: "I saw my weight going up and up every year. I turned 30 and hit an all time low, my weight was controlling my life. Optimal Health was offered to me, and I can't express how glad I am that I stepped out of my comfort zone and accepted that gift! I've lost 60lbs... but what I didn't expect was what I would GAIN when I set out to lose some weight a few months back... and it's SO much more than I could have even imagined. Food no longer controls my life. Health, hope, and freedom have truly been restored! I am thankful beyond words!!"
Linda: “Obesity has been my life, wearing size chubby 14 skirt the 1st day of kindergarten. A lifetime of feeling miserable on the inside, wanting and dreaming of a better me & body. Trying several diets, exercising, to only lose and regain. The cycle continued, until a physician who suggested if I lost 40lbs, it would help reduce the inflammation I had in my hips introduced me to this program. Reluctant, protective of my health as I have MS, I started the program to lose 40lbs. My dream became a reality, 80lbs down and feel great! This has changed the course of my health and life to unimaginable levels! I’m managing the MS beast inside me with a healthy lifestyle of optimal health choices! My life is truly in the palm of my hand and now a passion to share this amazing program.”
