Day 9 of 30 Days of Hope and Inspiration: Linda Sue's story

Linda Sue shed 75 pounds
I love Linda Sue's story!  We get to meet the most incredible people whose stories are very similar and touching.

The other day a "newbie" at my gym actually asked me if I was a trainer! I was stunned:  Me, a trainer??? In May 2009 that would never have entered anyone's mind! 

I have more energy, and love to shop for clothes and groceries. I can walk all day without pain.

Before Take Shape For Life, I was obese and very unhappy with the way I looked and felt. I had a lot of pain in my knees and I would go straight to the couch or bed as soon as I came home from work.
I kept getting bigger and heavier, and my doctor recommended LAP-BAND surgery, but because I suffer with strokes and TIAs ("mini-strokes)", I wasn't a candidate.
When my Health Coach introduced me to Take Shape For Life, I saw results after week one!
My friends are just stunned at my results ... And, thank goodness, my husband was entirely supportive.  He said, "We can't afford for you to be unhealthy and unhappy."
My knees don't swell badly anymore and I can sleep easily at night because I'm not in pain. I work out at my gym six days a week, and love it.

*Results vary.  Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan® is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.
