Success Stories

Debbie Dewey

“My motivation for losing weight was the realization that if I didn’t make some big lifestyle changes, I was going to be overweight for the rest of my life. I hated the thought of being tired, heavy, and self-conscious about my appearance for decades to come. I began to develop plantar fasciitis (a condition that caused foot pain when I stood), due in part to being overweight. I realized I had to make a move!”I tried other weight-loss programs, but did not have much success. I lost weight, but immediately gained it all back, plus more. A friend of mine was successful with Medifast, so I figured if she could do it, then so could I. Once I started Medifast, I noticed results almost immediately! I started losing weight within days, and after my first two weeks, I was already feeling better physically.On Medifast, all of the work was done for me: the correct balance of vitamins, calories, protein, fat, and carbohydrates was provided in each Medifast Meal Replacement. All I had to do was follow the program, and I lost the weight – it was very simple!”I surprised my parents when they came to visit. They hadn’t seen me since I started Medifast five months before. They were shocked. My mother pulled open my jacket and asked where the rest of me was! My friends and family have all been supportive, and many of them started to eat healthier and exercise more after seeing me change.

“I now feel twenty years younger! Bike ride with the kids? No problem. Brisk walk with hubby and the dog? I’m there! I really look forward to family vacations that include activities such as hiking, swimming, and horseback riding. I can now shop in the petite clothing department, tuck in a shirt, wear a belt, and run three miles – thanks, Medifast!”
