My name is Anamaria K. and I am 47 years old. I’m here to tell you a little bit about my weight loss journey and hopefully inspire you to start your own.
Like many adults, I’ve struggled with weight my entire adult life. Over the past 25 years, my yo-yo dieting became almost an obsession, often causing anxiety, depression, and overeating. I’ve tried many different diets, such as Jenny Craig, dr. Brown, Weight watchers, the grapefruit diet, the south beach, and many others. Though they helped me lose weight short term, the underlying issues that were causing me to gain weight were never dealt with and the weight always returned quickly and surely.
Six years ago I suddenly had to deal with a life changing experience that came somewhat unexpectedly and had a lasting effect on my mental health. As my life began to change, I moved to a new place where I met one of my neighbours, who became a close friend. She shared with me about her experience with Optifast, and after seeing her amazing results, I felt inspired and very determined to start my own journey. Coincidently, this moment also marked my highest weight, 171 lb. . For many, this doesn’t seem like a lot, however, for someone of my stature this meant that a substantial weight loss was necessary.
I embarked on this journey with Tatiana, and day by day, week by week, I began to see the pounds melting off. Together, we spent time analyzing and finding solutions to issues that were preventing me to lose and keep the weight off for good. 5 months later, I found myself on the last stretch of my journey to reaching my goal, and finally look forward to continuing with these amazing results and to a new lease on life.
I am confident I now have the tools, both physically and psychologically, that are necessary to maintain and combat the weight from ever returning.
I hope that my story inspires you to try to find your way to your after weight loss happy place. Thank you and all the best to you in your journey!
