“I had always been a sociable person but deep inside I didn’t feel comfortable in social situations. I didn’t join any events and my life had become dull and boring. I really didn’t think that any program would be able to help me.”
After many attempts to lose weight, Michelle had lost hope and, for a long time, did not even try anymore. It wasn’t until Michelle saw her brother in-law’s success with HMR that she thought “there was still hope.”
“I knew that if I didn’t do anything about my weight it was just a matter of time before I had other medical conditions besides just high blood pressure. I didn’t want to find out what else could go wrong because of my weight and I really liked that HMR was about my whole health.”
After just 6 months in the HMR program, Michelle lost 56 pounds & discontinued her blood pressure medication. Two years into the program, Michelle’s a happier person. She’s lost 73 pounds and most importantly, she has been successful at maintaining her weight loss. Michelle participates in Phase 2 of the program to continue to learn skills for successful long term weight management.
“There have been generations of eating issues in my family and I hope that I have broken that cycle. I’m more careful now with the whole family’s diet, and I’m now a great role model for my kids.”
A size 18 to a size 6, Michelle says, “the best part about losing this weight is not just that I can fit in smaller clothes, it’s what it has done for me on the inside. I really feel good about my life because I have accomplished something that I never thought I could. I’ve seen HMR work not just for myself but for other people as well. Just go for it! It works and it will change your life.”
