I’ve always struggled with my weight. When I was 10 years old, a fellow student told me I was “fat and ugly” and since then I’ve owned that label. I have tried all kinds of weight loss techniques: from a cabbage soup diet to Weight Watchers; from working out 1.5 hours a day to starvation. Nothing provided a sustained weight loss. I came to Learn2Lose on my 45th birthday. I felt that I was in the worst shape of my life.
Early this year my co-worker started the Learn2Lose Program and even though I was skeptical, I decided to give it a try. April 11, 2013, marked the start of my weight loss journey and my first meeting with Jean Marie. The Learn2Lose Program was different because it gave me an easy place to start.
A year ago I was such a MESS! Overworked, stressed out, and overweight. That did not include the checklist of medical concerns starting with a heart problem, shingles, a frozen shoulder and to top it off, I was just beginning menopause.
