Brandy’s Success Story

December 16, 2015

Brandy-TestimonialI have been obese since childhood and I have never known how it feels to live without constantly worrying about my weight, health and appearance. After going through 2 high risk pregnancies because of my weight and then developing type 2 diabetes, I knew I couldn’t continue down this path. I had to change my life in order to make sure I would be there to raise my children. April 2013 is when my journey started after attending Dr. Wegner’s seminar. In July 2013 I had gastric bypass and haven’t looked back since. I have currently lost 100lbs and am still losing. My diabetes is in complete remission and I no longer have high blood pressure. I am able to actively participate with my toddlers instead of just watching. I attend a boot camp and fitness kickboxing class 4 to 5 times a week. I have gone from a size 24/26 to a 12. For the first time since I was 8yrs old, I don’t have to buy clothes in the plus size section. It is AMAZING! Living a happy, healthy, and active preschool mom life!
