I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

My personal road began in March of 2011, I was 56 and I had a heart attack. I was lucky in a number of ways and after 3 stints and two days in ICU I was back on the road, It was a different road but never the less I was moving forward with my life. Up until then I guess I was like a lot of Americans where I felt I was doing OK. I was never a skinny guy and had always struggled with my weight even as a kid. But as I got into my teens I started running and changed my diet enough to where I thinned out and actually felt I was healthy. Somehow being able to compete in triathlons and run a 3:36 marathon gives you the impression you're in good health. The truth is I wasn't and I needed to find a way and a program that would allow me to get my weight under control and help me lead a healthy and productive life. But how? About year before my heart attack good friend had talked to me about the Take Shape for Life program but I put him off thinking I could do it by myself. Well I couldn't now I was ready to listen. So on September 7, 2011 I went on the 5 and 1 plan and although I had a rocky start I still lost nearly 20 pounds the 1st month and within 9 weeks I reached my goal of dropping 35 pounds. I was amazed not just because I lost the weight and got off all my medications but for the first time in my life I actually felt I had control over my health. You see for me it wasn't just about weight, I needed to get healthy and get my heart healthy and that's what Dr Anderson's Habits of Health and the Take Shape for Life program does. So now what? You need to take the next step and see where you stand health wise. To do that go to my home page and under the knowledge center tab, take the health assessment, then check to see where you stand on the BMI chart and the last and the most important part. Please fill out a client profile, that way I can get back to you and help you along the way. Thanks again for stopping by, I look forward to hearing about your success.
