Wanting to feel better and do the things he once enjoyed in life such as bowling without experiencing knee pain, sitting comfortably in restaurant booths and airplane seats, and feeling comfortable in his own clothes led Kevin to start his weight loss journey with OPTIFAST®.
He was nervous at first, but very motivated to change his life for the better using the products and behavioral training provided by the OPTIFAST® Program. “I am now 147-lbs. lighter*, off my hypertension meds, exercising 120 minutes per day [and] feeling and looking great.** My dad, when he saw me after the weight loss, [said] that I have added 10 years to my life!”
I have a new sense of self confidence that I can make the right decisions about what I eat and how I can maintain my new, healthy lifestyle!
Kevin says he has come a long way from being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, and in addition to his dad’s praise, he is being called an inspiration by his loved ones, has healthy vital signs, feels great in his clothes and makes sure he is active every day.
For others considering joining the OPTIFAST® Program, Kevin had this to say: “Be open with your weight loss journey. I let my family, friends, co-workers and church members know what the program was about, why I was doing it and how I needed their support to be successful. I truly believe that support during the 30-week program, and beyond, is a big reason for my weight loss success.”
