Agent of Hope
“I battled my weight for a long time. I remember being made fun of as a kid and, as a result, suffering from low self-esteem. Food became my comfort, and as a result, became an addiction.”
The more Dean ate, the larger he became. He no longer liked what he saw when he looked in the mirror.
“I was so embarrassed with how I had allowed myself to get this size. I didn't feel good!”
This carried over into Dean’s adult years. He unsuccessfully tried diets and exercise to lose the weight.
“Whatever was lost quickly returned because I didn't have the education of how to keep it off. I finally reached a place of hopelessness and didn't want to keep living like this anymore.”
Dean desired more than anything to lose the weight and to feel good about himself. He went on Facebook and saw his friend Pat’s post of how the OPTAVIA Program helped him lose weight, and he invited anyone to reach out to him for information. Dean had finally found his path to hope!
"I started the Program at 300 pounds, and seven months later, I lost 115 pounds*, weighing in at 185 pounds.
