- OPTIFAST® New You Winner

For Kristin, the three words, "I love summer" were never words she understood as an adult. She would hear people say this, roll her eyes, and convince herself that they were lying.

Kristin had been overweight most of her adult life and she didn't realize until this year that summer is HER favorite season too! She no longer finds herself wanting to hide indoors.

Kristin’s starting weight was 240 lbs. and her current weight is 175 lbs. —a 65-lb. weight loss!* Because of the weight loss, Kristin feels so much different physically and still gets surprised at everything she can do.

She used to find herself giving an automatic "no" response to any type of activity, including just even just sitting outside in 80-degree weather. Now Kristin now looks for things to do outside and doesn’t even think twice about it. Among other things, due to the weight loss, Kristin could completely stop her medications for diabetes and high blood pressure** that she had been on for years. The OPTIFAST® program gave Kristin back the life that she hadn’t realized she lost!
