Jackie Powell

Jackie lost 100 lbs*!

I feel healthy again - more energetic and happier. It's been life-changing.

At 247 pounds, I felt the real me was trapped in an overweight person's body and I couldn't get out. Now, I'm able to look in the mirror and smile.

I am a mother of four children and I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancies. I managed to lose the weight until the third child but trying to lose weight at age 40 was an entirely different ball game.

I started becoming depressed, ashamed, and embarrassed with my weight gain. I isolated myself from people who knew me when I was thin. I finally took a good look at myself and realized that I wasn't trapped. This was my body and I needed to figure out how to lose the weight and keep it off.

I started researching programs online and read so many positive reviews about Medifast. The success stories motivated me and made me want to be on the other side, sharing my own weight loss success story.

I started the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan and lost 19 pounds quickly! I went from 247 pounds to 147 pounds. It seemed like the weight just fell off.

Now I can get up on my horse without my husband's help. I can chase my kids without being completely winded. I am finally on the other side, telling everyone how I lost the weight with Medifast!
