“My story began two years ago when I gave birth to my last child. I was an older mom at 44 years old and my body was not in the best shape. I was so exhausted and eating healthy was not on my mind.”
Carrie noticed that she was putting her needs last and was investing all of her energy into her family. As she continued to gain weight, her self-esteem took a nosedive.
“I found myself changing my clothes in the dark, avoiding mirrors, and deleting photos as soon as I saw myself. I was not living the life I wanted for my new daughter.”
After starting the OPTAVIA Program, Carrie began feeling better within her first week. She was hopeful and more determined than ever to make the changes needed.
“I became a Coach in my first month because, as a nurse, my passion is helping others and I knew I would benefit more if I was helping others while helping myself.”
Six months later, Carrie had lost 80 pounds*. However, her biggest transformation was not losing the weight, it was regaining her self-esteem.
“Now I look forward to weekly trips to the park with my daughter and taking photos with her. My relationship has improved with my husband and, best of all, the relationship I have with myself is healthy and positive again.”
Carrie has redefined her purpose in life and is open to the endless possibilities her future holds.
“My purpose has gone beyond having kids and a successful marriage. I am paying it forward and helping others find their confidence again. I feel joy beyond measure to have found this life-giving Program.”
