Joan’s Weight Loss Story!

I was a walking ticking time bomb, tipping the scales at almost 300 pounds! Compounded by health issues and emotional break downs, I was at the end of my rope. After a routine doctor’s visit left me covered in vomit, urine and feces, I was faced with the very real life changing dilemma that I was going to die a very fat woman. Making a decision to change my life came through a great deal of soul searching, a tearful pleading session with my son and an online obsession with learning and educating myself on health and wellness.


That’s where ShapeFit.com came in. I’m now 150 pounds less than I was a year ago, my life has completely altered, I am fit, healthy and above all, WELL! I am also now embarking on a speaking tour to help motivate other obese woman to Put Down the Fork and Get Moving and to get to their local newsstand or go online and start educating themselves on HOW to be Healthy through ShapeFit. Give yourself the best gift you can, YOUR HEALTH and enhance that with ShapeFit.com!
