Weight Lost as of 3/2012: 84.5lbs*
*The success stories depicted in this section are representative of these individuals only and do not represent all OPTIFAST patients. The typical OPTIFAST patient loses over 50 pounds in 18-24 weeks. For many dieters, weight loss is only temporary.
Plagued by the aches and pains associated with severe fibromyalgia and filled with anxiety at the mere thought of stairs and airplane seatbelts, excess weight had stopped Shauna from doing many of the things she once loved, including dancing. Thankfully, shedding more than 84 pounds (38 percent of her total body weight)* has changed every facet of Shauna’s life for the better.
Her secret? She says there isn’t one. “Weight loss isn’t rocket science, but The OPTIFAST Program made it simple and provided the support I never had with any other program,” she says. “I doubt I would have persevered without such individualized care.”
Today Shauna is no longer embarrassed by her weight and has seen health improvements along the way. She’s physically and emotionally stronger than she’s ever been and calls her journey an “odyssey worthy of an epic poem.” She’s even started swing dancing again – strengthening her marriage and taking home a few new trophies along the way to remind her of just how far she’s come.
