When she agreed to attend an OPTIFAST® informational meeting with her parents, she thought it could be a great first step before a surgery.

Having to commute three hours a day for a teaching job left Emily passing the time by eating on the road. When she became overweight and could no longer fit into large clothing sizes, Emily believed she was too far gone and thought surgery was her only way out. When she agreed to attend an OPTIFAST® informational meeting with her parents, she thought it could be a great first step before a surgery. The OPTIFAST® Program helped Emily change her lifestyle and achieve her weight goals. Today, Emily continues to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle through her roles as a health coach and in the Missouri National Guard. Emily has also completed four Tough Mudder races, a series of hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle races.
