After fifteen years of struggling with my weight, spending thousands of dollars and lots of emotional labor attempting to become thin, I finally decided to get healthy instead and am now an Independent Certified Optavia Health Coach. At the age of 49, I lost 80 pounds and am loving life. I love to help my friends love life, too, and am ushering many of them toward health.
