Success Stories

"In November of 2012 I weighed 297 pounds--my diet was unhealthy, my energy level was low and my body was starting to show the effects of a lifetime of poor eating habits. I grew used to fat jokes, having to hold my breath to tie my shoes and feeling uncomfortable in small seats in theaters and stadiums. I expected people to avoid sitting next to me on airplanes. I resigned to the fact that I would probably not live a long life and that I would likely have health issues related to my weight for many years. Sadly and selfishlyJeff Tasker

My name is Haley Harris and when I hit 200 lbs., I decided I need to make a change. My mom started Healthy Lifestyle Secrets and I started just following her. I did well and so we decided to do Healthy Lifestyles Secrets as a team at work. During this process I have learned a lot. I began taking calcium, multivitamins, pro-biotics and now I stopped taking Ampeih altogether. I am going to continue to do Healthy Life Styles Secrets and become healthier version of me!! Haley Harris Dallas, TX Becoming a healthier version of me!

Back in June of 2014 – I started out horrible over weigh, out of shape and on meds for diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and acid reflux. 3 weeks into the first time I took the class, I was off acid reflux med, and reducing my diabetes medicine. By the end of the first time, I was down from 4 pills of Metformin to only 1. My blood sugar has evened out and is so much lower and about 3 weeks after the class, my blood work showed my cholesterol is great and my blood pressure is great andI’m down a total of 52.4 lbs.

I have lost weight and fat mass and want to continue the process so that I can continue on the road to feeling better. Callie McDole Dallas, TXContinuing on the road to feeling better
