Denise lost 152 lbs!

One of the best decisions I've ever made!"

"My husband and I think it's funny that he's been accused of cheating on me. One person even thought we'd gotten divorced and my husband had remarried!"

Even in high school I was overweight, and over the years I had just resigned myself to being heavy. I was always told I was beautiful, but by the time I was in college I was a size 20 to 24, and didn't feel beautiful. I tried to be outgoing and funny to cover my insecurities.

Although my blood work was normal, I started having a lot of health issues, including swelling in my foot that required me to wear a boot for six months. My husband was afraid for my health and worried that I wouldn't be around to help raise my children.

I attended my employer's health and benefits fair, where a Take Shape For Life Health Coach introduced me to the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan. I knew at the time we couldn't afford it, but I kept it in the back of my mind. Two years later my husband and I agreed that we would find the money and that I would do this. I lost 18 lbs in the first month!*

My family and friends can't believe my physical and emotional transformation. I no longer have knee pain or huff and puff as I walk up stairs. I especially enjoy doing things with my kids, and not having to worry that the seatbelt won't fasten when I'm on an airplane. Clothes I would never have dared to even try on before look amazing on me!

*Results vary. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan® is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter. The success story represented in this success story is a Health Coach for Take Shape For Life, a Medifast support program.
