While Misty was a little overweight as a child, maybe 15 or 20 pounds, her biggest challenge as a youngster was her battle with Attention Deficit Disorder, slight tics, and compulsive behavior tendencies.

I’m happy to introduce Sandi Russell, our latest success story. A 37 year old stay-at-home mom of two boys, Sandi was a tall, healthy youth, standing 5′ 9” and wearing a size 7. She was one of those people that could eat just about anything she wanted without visible consequences. As the story goes, one day things changed.
