Noelle lost 233 lbs!
During a 2016 trip to the zoo, Noelle Dawson’s five kids—then ages 3 to 11—“had to sit and wait for me every 10 minutes as I caught my breath and rested,” she recalls. “My husband and I adopted our four oldest to give them a better life, and I was like an anchor holding them back.” She vowed to change—despite 20 years of failed diets. Her cousin told her about Optavia.com’s meal replacements, and with little meal planning or prep to worry about, “I had more energy to focus on being active,” she shares. Early on, “I was really just trying to go around the block.” But as weight poured off—100 pounds in four months!—she got into a regular routine, walking on most days. “That’s all I did for 11 months, and I lost 200 pounds!” Today, she’s 233 pounds slimmer.
