“I have been heavy my entire life. I would lose massive amounts of weight over and over again only to continuously put it back on.”
Aside from the yoyo dieting, Sarah also found herself to be tired all the time. Even her kids started to take notice. "When asking my kids, 'what is Mom's favorite thing to do?’, they said take naps. They were right; I had no endurance to finish a day without taking a nap."
Sarah saw several of her friends having success with OPTAVIA and decided it was time for her to take action.
By staying committed to the Program, and developing lasting healthy habits, Sarah received the results she longed for many years. “I lost 99 pounds*. This has been my biggest accomplishment.
“I no longer take naps. I sleep soundly and wake up refreshed with energy that lasts all day. My relationship with food is different now. I’m no longer tempted by food, nor does it control me."
Sarah finds that her success has come from following not just one, but all components of the Habits of Health Transformation System by utilizing her Independent OPTAVIA Coach, the Community, and staying consistent with her Plan.
Several of Sarah’s friends and family members have asked about her transformation and said that they wanted to join her.
“Even though my life is crazy and I work full time, I’m now an independent OPTAVIA Coach. I knew a part of me needed to help and support others on their journeys.”
Sarah is enjoying all the opportunities that being a part of the Coaching Community offers.
“It’s crazy because once I started Coaching, I ramped up my weight loss. It allowed me to get back to the basics of the Program, as I helped others. But the most exciting part of my journey is getting to watch the success of my friends and family that are on Plan with me. I love paying it forward and helping people achieve the same success I did."
