Journey to Success - Carrie

"I love the OPTAVIA program and the support from my coach and community. I love how it has changed my life-and I love how my life is on a different path now. My kids are going to follow me on this path. They are going to see a mom who's happy, and confident, and looking forward to the future."

Carrie Frazier's transformation story began two years ago when she gave birth to her fourth child. "Being 44 years old, I was considered an older mom. And honestly, my body didn't bounce back as it did with my other kids. Although I was thrilled to be a mom again, my body was not in the best shape."

Carrie was tired and exhausted, and eating healthy was not on her mind. As the weight crept on, her self-esteem took a nosedive. "I found myself hiding clothes in the closet, avoiding mirrors, and deleting photos as soon as I saw myself. I was not living the life I wanted for my new daughter."

After starting the OPTAVIA program, Carrie noticed a difference quickly. "My hope returned and I felt more determined than ever to make the changes needed. Within six months, I had lost 80 pounds* and felt ten years younger. My energy has remained high and I look forward to weekly trips to the park with my daughter and being in photos with her!"

As a practicing nurse, Carrie already had a passion for helping others.  "Now I'm paying it forward and helping other people do it. It's so rewarding in my life. Best of all, the relationship I have with myself is healthy and positive once again. I feel blessed beyond measure to have found this life-giving, transformational program!"

*Average weight loss for Clients on the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® with support is 20 pounds. Clients are in weight loss, on average, for 12 weeks.

Gail's Journey

Phenomenal

“One of my proudest milestones was when I could wear my wedding ring again after not wearing it for more than 15 years.”

Gail Bartlett’s transformation story has brought wonderful changes into her life. “I began my transformation journey in September of 2014 by building my healthy mind and enjoying the support of the coaching system.”

“My Coach kept on me. Several months later, I finally became a Client following a three-way story call and was able to experience the full offerings of the OPTAVIA program in developing my healthy body.”

Gail says the changes in her body were nothing short of phenomenal. “I went from a non-sick state to a vibrant and healthy lifestyle. In the past, I was a couch potato—now I get to enjoy exercising five days a week at the pool.” Gail is ecstatic to have lost 130 pounds.* “Even more exciting is that I’ve now maintained my healthy weight.”

In addition to being able to wear her wedding ring again, Gail is particularly proud of another memory. “I’m the mother of two daughters, 16 and 19 years old. They’re now proud to be seen with me and express statements such as, ‘I’m so excited that I can now hug you and put my arms all the way around you.’”

“I can truly say that OPTAVIA was not a diet, but has indeed become my lifestyle—a lifestyle of Optimal Health.™”
