Durita McMahon – “I lost 45 pounds, and I went from a size 16 to a size 6. The last time I weighed what I weigh now, I was in my 30’s.  I don’t know how good I look, but people now tell me that I look younger than my age.  I didn’t think that I would ever be permanently successful, but I know I’m going to be now.  I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that this weight is gone forever.  In fact, I’m so confident that I gave away all my clothes that no longer fit me – I’d never done that before.  I’m easily maintaining my weight loss – it’s pretty effortless.”

Ruthie Prochnow – “I’m down 40 pounds.  I was a solid 16, and now I’m wearing a size 8 – I don’t think I’ve ever worn this size pants.  I look better, I feel better, and I’m sleeping better.  The weight loss is happening as a consequence of getting healthy – it’s not about getting smaller, it’s about truly getting healthier.  All the menopause symptoms I was having when I weighed more are gone!  It’s cool that I don’t have hot flashes anymore.  I’m looking for a lifelong success plan and that’s what I’ve found.”

Sheri Monastesse – “I’ve lost 11 pounds. I’ve gone from a tight size 16 to a size 14 (and I can take my pants off now without unzipping them).  I bought white pants for the first time in forever!  My energy levels are off the charts, I’m not out of breath and puffing when I go hiking, and my mood is better – I feel much happier.  I have no food cravings and I’m never hungry.  I don’t feel like I’m sacrificing anything, and I don’t feel deprived at all.”

I haven’t reached my end goals yet but I am well on my way through this journey to living a quality life like I never have before!”
