Take Shape for Life

Well I am officially a Coach for this wonderful program that has been nothing short of life changing for me!  I am 16 weeks in and have lost 41 pounds.  I still have about 10 more pounds to go to get to my goal, but want to shout from the roof tops what this program has done for me.

I have struggled with my weight since having my 2nd child nearly 14 years ago.  After my first I had gained but wasn't as much of an issue.  After Logan was born the weight piled on and on and took many years to figure out some of the issues (thyroid/PCOS/insulin resistance).  I tipped the scales at my heaviest at 218 - once my medications really started working I dropped to 176 within about a year and a half.  176 quickly turned back in to 186 by 2012 and I knew I had to do something drastic.  Just watching what I ate and exercising wasn't cutting it anymore.

Then I saw some of our great friends begin losing weight like mad, and commenting how easy their program was...I had to know more!  I went to a food tasting and the rest as they say is history. 

I only wish I had learned about this program sooner!  It truly is the easiest thing I have ever done and the only "diet" I have NEVER cheated on, never been tempted or had cravings on...amazing!  I certainly didn't set out to become a coach for this program but I can't hold this knowledge all to myself!

What's the catch?  Really, nothing!  If you stick to the plan, don't cheat and do what you are supposed to do, you lose weight.  Guaranteed.  Not joking!  It is a 5 and 1 plan meaning you eat 5 of the MediFast meals a day and 1 lean and green meal (protein and vegies).  Eating every 2-3 hours is key.  Exercise?  Yes typically after 3-4 weeks on plan and then nothing to strenuous. 

There food tastes great and there are so many options - in fact a mac and cheese was just released.  The recipes that are "legal" for the lean and green meal don't seem like they could be - even my hubby and sons like them!

The only "catch" of sorts is that the first 3-5 days can be a little difficult as your body adjusts to the plan and getting rid of all the nastiness we put in to our bodies.  As a coach I am there to help you through not only that first week but every week thereafter!  The support on this plan is amazing!

Another great thing is that this program is nutritionally complete and backed by physicians.   

I could go on and on!  Yesterday I bought my FIRST EVER pair of size 8 jeans and they fit comfortably!  I have NEVER been in a size 8 in my adult amazing!

Below are some pics before and after (40 pounds) and a link to my website.  Please let me know if you are interested in changing your life too!
