The Turning Point
“Over the years, I was in denial about being overweight. I tried many different ways to lose the weight, including dieting and exercise, but I just continued to gain pound after pound. I knew I had to do something.”
In April 2017, Jenette weighed 378 pounds. She could barely walk up the stairs without her knees hurting or stand for long periods.
“I could not believe that I let my health get that bad. I had to get my clothes online because of the size I wore. I had a low self-esteem, which led to me drinking every day, which now I realize was the lowest part of my life.”
Jenette realized that it was all up to her to take responsibility and lose the weight. She started to eating healthier and drinking less alcohol.
“In three months I lost about 20 pounds, but I could not stop drinking and eating fried food. I was becoming depressed again, and had to start seeing a therapist.”
Then Jenette saw a post from Annie, who would eventually be her OPTAVIA Coach. Jenette was curious about Annie’s transformation, so she decided to reach out.
“I now realize was the turning point that would change my life forever.
Jenette was determined to lose the weight, so she started the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan®. After incorporating healthy habits such as eating small meals every two to three hours, having a daily lean and green meal, and staying hydrated, Jenette’s quality of life had changed.
“I have a whole new outlook on my life. I sleep better and wake up so refreshed. I have not had a drop of alcohol since I started, which made a big difference in the way I feel about myself and my outlook on life. This program has changed my life forever.”
