“I have been overweight since second grade. In fifth and sixth grade my parents took me once a week to a children’s weight loss clinic, where group weigh-ins and talk therapy were the order of the day. I was an active kid, I was on the swim team and I showed horses, it wasn’t a lack of exercise. By the time I graduated high school I was wearing a size 22/24.

I was put on blood pressure medication when I was 30 and put on antidepressants a year later. Around 35 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos.

That fall, my doctor talked to me about Metformin. He gave me a prescription that I did not fill until February of 2017. When I saw him in June of 2017, he told me that we needed to talk about insulin, I was 420 pounds.

That is when I found Maria Emmerich. In the first few months I lost 35 pounds, enough for my doctor to say I did not need the insulin (yet). At 6 months, my doctor took me off metformin, and the antidepressants. At only 9 months, I lost 100 pounds, and my doctor cried.

In 2 years, I have lost 206 pounds and am 20 pounds from my goal. I am OFF blood pressure medicines and now the only thing I am still taking is for the Hashimotos, and I am working to get off of that now thanks to Maria.
I’m now in a size 14/16, I actually bought a size 12 dress the other day, because it fit! I have not worn a size 14/16 since 6th grade.
Maria has helped me greatly while I have been on this journey, I live in Wisconsin and have been lucky enough to have met her in person now 5 times. Every time I see her it amazes me that she remembers me, her warmth and joy inspire me to continue on with my journey. My only regret is that I did not find this way of eating sooner.

I was finally able to go on a zip line! I cried the whole time because in my mind I was not a 208 pound person on that zip line I was still 425 pounds in my head.  It was cathartic, and made me see myself as a completely different person I am now compared to who I was when I started this journey!

Thank you Maria, from the bottom of my heart, Meredith”
