Good Morning Take Shapers!
Here are some of the comments I've heard this week:
I bought a swim suit and I wore it to the river without feeling EMBARRASSED! Woopee!!!
Though I can't do thisfor him (her husband),I'm so happyI can do it with him! We are both feeling so much better - I've learned how to shop, cook lean & green meals, and appreciate parties without pigging out! Being "On Program" means so much more to me now. Thank you for all your wisdom and support!
My goals are elusive ... I started Take Shape for Life and the Medifast 5&1 program thinking I just wanted to get skinny! I just wanted the fat off my thighs! Now, though I still value being trim, I really value being fit and feisty!! After burning through the 40 pounds I'd carried around for years, I've discovered that my feet don't have to hurt and I really love to dance!!!

This woman brings a huge smile to my face! Linda shares how she gained TOTAL CONTROL of her life and wellbeing by making the choice to learn and live by the habits of health. She says:
“Obesity has been my life, wearing size chubby 14 skirt the 1st day of kindergarten. A lifetime of feeling miserable on the inside, wanting and dreaming of a better me and body. Trying several diets, exercising, to only lose and regain. The cycle continued, until a physician who suggested if I lost 40lbs, it would help reduce the inflammation I had in my hips introduced me to this program. Reluctant, protective of my health as I have MS, I started the program to lose 40lbs. My dream became a reality, 80lbs down and I feel great! This has changed the course of my health and life to unimaginable levels! I’m managing the MS beast inside me with a healthy lifestyle of optimal health choices! My life is truly in the palm of my hand and now a passion to share this amazing program.”
Results vary: Typical results are 2-5 pounds per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 pounds per week thereafter
Thanks for the referrals, check in often and have a wonderful week!
