A Journey with OPTAVIA
In a world filled with countless diets and wellness programs, Threva found herself disillusioned. Little did she know that her journey with OPTAVIA would be nothing short of a life-altering revelation.
In January 2022, Threva was at her heaviest. Having tried numerous diets before, nothing seemed to stick. She was stuck in a vicious cycle, neglecting her own wellbeing while prioritizing everything and everyone else. It was a grim period for her, both physically and mentally.
OPTAVIA entered Threva's life like a breath of fresh air. Skepticism loomed large, but something inside urged her to give it a try. It was a decision that would change the course of her life forever.
The first few months were astonishing; she experienced significant weight loss in just nine months*. What set OPTAVIA apart was not just the weight loss, but the profound insight it offered into her own habits and emotions. Threva came to understand that her unhealthy behaviors were rooted in a lack of self-value. She was merely existing, not truly living.
By September, she had reached her initial goal weight, but the journey wasn’t over; her doctor agreed that losing another 15 pounds was an attainable goal. Threva doubted herself, but when she weighed in that October, she had surpassed her target*.
Throughout this journey, Threva’s independent OPTAVIA Coach played an instrumental role. Her Coach’s unwavering support and gentle encouragement were Threva’s pillars of strength. She believed in Threva, even when Threva didn’t believe in herself. Incorporating motion, adopting mini movements and adding yoga classes became a part of Threva’s routine, providing a sense of peace that had been missing from her life.
“The transformation wasn’t just physical; it was a holistic revival.” Threva went from being unable to perform daily tasks, enduring constant pain and battling exhaustion to feeling revitalized and joyful. Her physical changes were so drastic that people who had known her for years couldn’t recognize her.
One day, a stranger in a restroom complimented her, saying she had the “sparkliest eyes”. It was her birthday and those words touched Threva deeply. A year ago, her eyes would have been anything but sparkly – they would have reflected sadness. OPTAVIA not only helped reshape her body but also reignited the spark within her.
Today, Threva is a better version of herself. She’s learned the importance of self-care and the value of prioritizing her well-being, allowing her to love the skin she’s in. Threva has surrounded herself with like-minded individuals and learned to extend grace to others. Her journey inspired those around her, and she couldn’t be more grateful for the incredible support of the OPTAVIA Community.
Here's to embracing life with open arms and celebrating every step of the journey!
