Weight management had never been an issue when I was younger and more active. When I moved to Bend in 2014 my weight had crept up to almost 200 pounds. I wanted to be ‘Me’ again, healthy and active. I did not like the way I looked, my clothes didn’t fit and bending over to tie my shoes was challenging. My doctor recommended that I meet with Annie to help me lose weight. But the thought of going to a dietitian intimidated me. In my mind I was thinking that she’s probably skinny, clinical and matter of fact. I found Annie to be quite the opposite. Annie was so friendly and warm. She made me feel like l could share anything with her. With Annie’s help I have lost almost 45 pounds! I can wear my old clothes again, I feel healthy and happy and am very pleased with my results.
