“MY LIFESTYLE HAS CHANGED COMPLETELY”
All my life I’ve been overweight. I tried weight loss programs but always gained the weight back. This time when I decided to lose weight it was more for my health than it was for vanity reasons. My blood pressure was elevating, my cholesterol was high, and I was suffering from arthritis. My weight was out of control.
