Laurie Brown

Laurie lost 42 pounds!

I'm 28 years old and since the birth of my two kids, I gained a lot of weight and couldn't lose it. When my Aunt Brenda lost a lot of weight on the Medifast program, I decided to give it a try.

I started Medifast in January, weighing 182 pounds. I was on it for two months and lost 42 pounds! The program was a lot of fun, it was like a game to wake up every morning and see how much weight had fallen off. The scale dropped the first couple of days and continued until I reached my goal. I now weigh 145 pounds and have never been happier! Thanks to the Medifast program, I dropped 4 pants sizes. I am finally able to get dressed again with out feeling depressed and overweight.

Being overweight affected my personal life in so many ways. I never felt confident and I would never want to wear dresses or shorts like I once did. Since I am a stay-at-home Mom, my weight made it hard for me to keep up with the kids and I found myself not wanting to do certain activities.

The Medifast program is the only way to lose weight and keep it off! The food was great, and I didn't cheat once. It is so easy to do when you're on the go. In the morning I would drink a shake, throw a bar in my bag and head to town. You can eat your lean and green anywhere, it is that simple!

Everyone is so happy for me and my husband loves that he has the girl he married back! The best part was when my Dad told me how proud he was of me, and couldn't get over how great I looked.

*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.
