I did it! This morning I weighed 189 pounds! That means I've lost weight to the tune of 51 pounds since January 1! My goal was to get under 200 pounds; however, my coach, Lori Andersen, encouraged me to go the extra 10 pounds. Honestly, as positive and goal oriented as I am, I just couldn't believe that I would ever be under 190 pounds again without the "help" of an illness.
The journey has actually been a lot easier than I imagined thanks to the combination Medifast meal replacements and the personal involvement of having a coach from Medifast's coaching division: Take Shape For Life. Co-founder, Dr. Wayne Andersen, is an amazing source of inspiration, education, and vision. His vision for the Health Coaches to get America healthy is one thing. How that vision translates to each client is another. I'm living proof and a huge fan!
[please note, the photo on my blog will be updated with a new one soon. This shot is me at 240 pounds. You'll see the new me soon. Yesterday we had a photo shoot so a new Kevin will be appearing soon.]
