Before Take Shape For Life, I was obese and very unhappy with the way I looked and felt. I had severe osteoarthritis in my knees, and I would go straight to the couch or bed as soon as I came home from work. I kept getting bigger and heavier. My doctor recommended lap-band surgery, but because I suffer from strokes and TIAs ("mini-strokes"), I wasn't a candidate.
When my Health Coach introduced me to Take Shape For Life, I saw results after week one!
My friends are stunned at my results on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan. And, thank goodness, my husband was entirely supportive. It would have been so easy for him to say, "No, we can't afford this," but instead he said, "We can't afford for you to be unhealthy and unhappy."
I work out at my gym six days a week, and love it. The other day a "newbie" at my gym actually asked me if I was a trainer! I was stunned - me, a trainer! Before Medifast that never would have entered anyone's mind! I love what Take Shape For Life has done for me!
Results vary. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 PlanŽ is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.
