I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

For most of my life, losing weight was an uphill battle for me. Born and raised a native New Yorker, I now reside in Waxahachie, Texas, a suburb in the Dallas/Forth Worth area. Weighing over 320 pounds, I had difficulty walking and even breathing normally because of my weight. I spent four years?and more than $20,000 ? trying various weight loss products, programs and diet pills with little or no success. After wasting so much time and money with nothing to show for it, I felt like a complete failure and began to lose hope that I would ever be able to shed my unwanted weight. In 2001, I began the Take Shape For Life Program featuring Medifast Meal Replacement Products. My results were extraordinary on this program. In less than one year, I lost 152 pounds and experienced a tremendous increase in my energy levels. As I look back, I realize what an amazing journey this has been for me. Who knew that this program would lead me to Optimal Health? I've experienced improvement in all three areas of the Trilogy: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Healthy Finances. Losing over 152 lbs combined with hard work, determination, and commitment, and incorporating the BeSlim lifestyle has now filled my life with people who genuinely want to improve themselves. I realized TSFL was a vehicle that could help so many, and seeing this possibility fueled my passion to help others. Being a Health Coach with TSFL is so much more then just helping clients reach their weight loss goals. That's just the beginning! What we really do is to help them reach the Trilogy of Optimal Health. Helping others reach a healthy weight was so fulfilling to me that I was missing out offering my clients the Trilogy. As TSFL grew fast and furious, so did my client base, which was the heart of my business for years. With the Habits of Health system the mentorship of my Business Leaders, Dr. and Lori Andersen, and my dedicated team. I now offer my clients the same opportunity that I now live.
