Medifast California Client Marilyn Nelson Reaches Three-Year Weight Loss Milestone

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Marilyn Nelson, a Medifast California client and radio personality for Sacramento's KYMX Mix 96, is celebrating a three-year weight loss achievement of 110 pounds after successfully completing Medifast Weight Control Centers' Jump Start 5 & 1 plan and its supportive maintenance program.

"Before my journey with the Medifast Centers began, I would shy away from most activities," said Nelson. "I was self-conscious, had lost a lot of self-esteem, and just didn't have the energy or desire to participate. Since losing 110 pounds I finally have my life back."

Nelson weighed 281 pounds before signing up with Medifast, and lost the weight in just 40 weeks with the Jump Start 5 & 1 plan.

"How did I get so heavy? I guess my bad habits finally caught up with me after years of eating the wrong stuff and too much of it," Nelson adds. "As my weight began to climb, so did my denial. I simply couldn't ignore the problem any longer. When I heard about the Medifast Centers opening in the Sacramento area, the timing couldn't have been more perfect."

This weight loss plan distinguishes Medifast Weight Control Centers, and creates results clients need quickly and easily. The diet plan is simple: eat five Medifast Meals, one every two to three hours, and one Lean & Green Meal with lean protein and non-starchy vegetables. Clients can enjoy the Lean & Green Meal at home or in a restaurant, at dinnertime or any other time that works with their schedule. Clients continue on this plan until they reach their weight-loss goal.

After completing the Jump Start 5 & 1 plan, Nelson was on maintenance with Medifast for two years with its successful Stay Fit Maintenance Plan. With this plan, after gradually reintroducing all vegetables, fruit, low-fat dairy, and healthy whole grain items, clients learn portion control, behavior modification, and practical tips to eat healthy for life. A Certified Weight Control Counselor will continue to guide and support clients every step of the way through Medifast's fully supported transition and maintenance plans that include the new Thrive by Medifast products. 

In addition to inspiring others, experimenting with healthy cooking and living a fulfilling life, Nelson enjoys spending time with her husband of 20 years, her two teenage girls, and her dog.
