"I've always thought of myself as a svelte size six and I've been working to get back to that size since the birth of my second child," says Francis. "In my industry, there has always been tremendous pressure on me to stay the same size I was when I was 17. Like so many others, I've tried different methods to lose weight for years but I really never got the weight off. I was so focused on my family and the day-to-day of my busy life that at some point, I just gave up on making my own health a priority."
"I've chosen Medifast because I know I will succeed this time with the help from a program like Medifast," continues Francis. "Medifast has amazing products that taste great and are completely portable for my busy lifestyle as well as personalized support to help me reach my goals and keep the weight off for good this time." continued Francis.
