lost 70 lbs. in 25 weeks at MWLC Grandville*
I hit an all time low when my feet hurt so badly, I would crawl into bed or scuff my feet when I walked. My back hurt so badly I had a hard time getting out of bed. I hated shopping because nothing fit and if it did, I hated how it looked on my body. I dreaded going out and found myself sleeping more and more. I felt like I was just existing and not living my life.
How has my life changed?
I am now amazed at how good I feel after taking off 70 lbs. Not only am I walking, I am starting to run without any pain! I have purchased an entirely new wardrobe and for the first time in years, I order online and it actually fits!! Amazing!! I think twice about any food I put into my body. MWLC has given me the tools to make better food choices, but it’s up to me what I do with that information. I have gained self confidence and enjoy going out now. So many people have supported me in this journey and it feels amazing. My goal is to run a 5K race.
My advice to others:
MWLC held me accountable. They encouraged me along the way and helped me work through challenges. They even took a phone call when I wanted to give up. I knew I could count on them. They taught me the value of healthy eating and I quickly saw results. The cravings don’t just go away, but the “tricks” to overcome them will last a lifetime. I am so grateful for all of the coaching!
Food prep is a must to help stay on track. I spend 3-4 hours every weekend preparing food. (and I find I actually enjoy it). Have a system in place to stock up on food. Keep them in your freezer ready to go. I grill all types of meat then measure and label bags to keep it all organized.
My husband supports me 100%. He goes out of his way to help grill and choose restaurants where I can find healthy choices.
Holly from Grandville MWLC always took time to explain things to me. I never felt rushed with her and felt she truly wanted to see me do well. I always look forward to seeing her.
