It was 5 years ago when I looked in the mirror and I couldn’t believe what I saw. I was ashamed and I was sad on the inside, but on the radio, I was happy and laughing along with everyone else when they made fun of me for being fat.
November 2011 was a big turning point in my life. It was just a few weeks after my mom died and I just wanted to live a healthier life. I called KENT who owns the Medifast Centers in San Diego. I asked if I could meet with him. He came to the radio station and I opened up to him and told him I wanted to live better and to lose weight. He immediately told me to see his staff and get started.
I wanted to lose weight. didn’t want to look in the mirror anymore and see what I saw.
So, I started the Medifast Centers program November 1st, 2011. I didn’t cheat at all for the next year or two. I was PERFECT with all that I did on the Medifast Centers program.
My weight flew off fast. I lost 50 pounds as the stroke of midnight hit into 2012.
I went through Thanksgiving, Christmas, the Holidays, New Years, Valentines, St Patricks Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Summer losing weight overtime I stepped on the scale. I reached my goal summer of 2012.
I LOST 90 pounds!
I felt so good, but the best thing of all was that I got healthy. Yes, I lost weight and all those fat jokes disappeared, but I gained self confidence.
I started showing up places and going out and doing things in the community more often instead of hiding at home because I didn’t want people to see how fat I got.
Today, 5 years later, the Medifast Centers have become family to me. I know everyone at all seven centers, I speak to listeners that were just like me.
As the holidays approach and 2017 is right around the corner, take a moment and perhaps do something for yourself. I did and now I feel I’ll be around for my kids longer and I am having the best time of my life.
