This success story starts with Susan being 380 pounds on her 40th birthday. Like many of us who have struggled with weight, she didn’t like being in photos and avoided them when possible. So when she got her photos back from the celebration, she didn’t recognize herself. “I not only looked bad, I felt horrible” says Susan.
I’m thrilled to introduce our latest success story, Marilyn Brazzle, an inspiring and compassionate lady. A CPA working in management consulting for an accounting firm in Washington, DC, she resides in Frederick, MD and runs a non-profit sanctuary for homeless senior basset hounds. “At any time I’m sharing my home with about 20 old dogs,” says Marilyn. Her exercise includes caring for her home, the dogs, and her commute to work.
If you want true inspiration, you need look no further than Kent Altena. Eight years after starting Atkins, Kent is still literally half the man he used to be. In 15 months he’d shed 211 pounds and reached his goal. He’s since rejoined the National Guard and has become a volunteer firefighter and EMT. He’s also an active runner and has completed a number of marathons.
Laurie Rosen’s journey begins when she was having major health problems such as IBS, heartburn and hypoglycemia. A co-worker mentioned Atkins, and it was such a radical concept that she wondered if there actually might be something to it.
