Savor Every Moment
“I was anywhere from 250 - 320 pounds for a good portion of my teens through mid-30s. I felt I had nothing to offer anybody. I was always the life of the party, making everyone laugh while slowly dying on the inside. It was a very lonely feeling.”
Honey couldn't do fun things that "everyone else" could do without a major mental struggle. She loved riding with her husband on his motorcycle, but now she could barely lift her leg to get on.
“At the amusement park, I would scan the crowds looking for people larger than me to see if they fit onto the ride. And then it happened. One day I didn't fit into the seat of a coaster and had to leave. I was so humiliated.”
After trying to have children for years, Honey decided it was time to go to a doctor for help.
“I was told that I was too overweight to have a baby and I needed to lose weight, so I yo-yo dieted. I was not optimally healthy but I did lose some weight and was able to have two children.”
After having her children, Honey went back to yo-yo dieting. It wasn’t until a friend shared the OPTAVIA Program with her when her life transformed.
“I lost 80 pounds* in seven months and I have never looked back! Now I have the energy and ability to live life to the fullest!”
Honey cannot only lift her leg to get on her husband’s motorcycle; she now has her own bike!
“Nothing is more empowering than putting on that sleek pink and black helmet along with my Johnny Rocket jacket and getting on my bike for a ride! Our family now has season passes to several amusement parks throughout the country. I can ride any roller coaster, anywhere, anytime!”
Now an OPTAVIA Coach, Honey enjoys helping others reach their health goals and live life to the fullest.
“I am able to create treasured memories with my family and savor every moment of life. Most of all, because of this optimal wellbeing Program, I am able to leave a legacy of health, family, relationships, adventure, and JOY!
