“I always reminisce about my days growing up in sunny Southern California to my children. My summers were spent on the beach, swimming and boogie boarding all day long. It was hard for them to believe my stories because we now live in beautiful Pismo Beach and I would never go in the water. I would not even wear a bathing suit.”
After four kids and a busy life, Anita did not have the health or body that she wanted, let alone the energy or stamina to be active at the beach. After years of yo-yo dieting, she had reached an unhealthy weight.
“My doctor even wanted me to consider weight loss surgery. I was shocked that she would suggest that! I knew that was something I would never want to do.”
It wasn’t until Anita witnessed her daughter’s weight loss success on the OPTAVIA Program that she believed hope was in sight.
“I could not believe her transformation! She had lost 60 pounds* and improved her health tremendously. After seeing her amazing success, I agreed to have her coach me. However, I was a little skeptical because she is in her 20s. For me, in my 50s, I did not completely believe it was possible.”
With her daughter’s coaching and implementing healthy habits, Anita soon started seeing results. She also had the most energy then she had in years!
“I started sleeping better. I started exercising again. I am thrilled to say that so far I have lost over 50 pounds!*”
The old Anita would bring her kids to the beach and set up her chair to sit down and watch them surf and play beach volleyball. But now her kids know she was truthful when she told them she spent her summers in the ocean.
“I am not sitting on the beach anymore. Now I’m jumping in! Thank you, OPTAVIA, for teaching me the Habits of Health®. This wonderful Program has given me my health back!”
