Testimonial - Maryann, age 65

I am a 65-year-old woman, 6’ 1” tall and I used to weigh 350 pounds. I had arthritis, diabetes and 2 knee replacements.  I was housebound for many years due to my health problems and physical limitations. In June of 2009 Nicole told me she could help me lose weight and have a healthier and happier lifestyle. I was skeptical. I had tried to lose weight so many times before, and now with my physical limitations I thought it was hopeless.  However, I said that I would attempt to do what Nicole recommended.  Nicole designed a menu with healthy food selections and geared an exercise routine to my physical ability.  Slowly, the weight started to drop off.  It was not easy to start the routine but I persevered and soon it became easier and easier to do.  In 6 months time I lost 50 pounds and after 1 year I had lost 75 pounds. I was seeing results and I was keeping the weight off.  I was feeling more energized and healthier and I was looking considerably better. I was once again able to get out of the house and do things that I had not done in so long. I was even starting to drive the car again!

To date, I have lost 105 pounds and have been able to maintain my weight for the past four years. I was a size 4x and am now happy at a size 18, which I had always dreamed of being but had no hope of ever reaching. With Nicole’s guidance and encouragement (and some hard work on my part) I have reached my goal and surpassed my expectations. Now the lessons and guidelines Nicole gave me have become routine and I follow them all the time. Thank you Nicole for helping me to live again.
