Here is a guest blog from Coni Campbell, an actual CMWM patient. Read below to share Coni's amazing success story.

coni-campbell-disneylandI was never overweight until I had my kids. Then, I had the 'I just had a baby' issue until my babies were 19 and 23! I finally DECIDED on November 26, 2012 that it was time to get the weight off once and for all. At my annual physical, my doctor and I discussed some stressful issues going on in my life and he advised that I need to be in as good of physical shape as possible to get through whatever life throws my way. In addition, my 23 year old 'baby' was engaged and had set a date for the wedding - August 2013 - and I absolutely did not want to be the 'fat' mother of the bride in all the pictures. Also, the first of November 2012 we took our granddaughter on her first trip to Disneyland. I realized once we came home I am not in hardly ANY pictures - I chose to stay behind the camera for most of the trip. I regret this to this day!

A friend commented on one of her friend's recent weight loss successes on Facebook and I happened to see it. I decided to message her and ask her how she'd done it. She gave me the info and I made the call....and the rest is the EASIEST and BEST thing I have ever done for myself!!!

coni-campbell-profileThe initial visit was so informative and I knew as soon as I met Dr. Barker and his staff that this plan would be different from all the other weight loss products, plans and supplements I had tried without success. They were going to teach me a new lifestyle! This wasn't a diet – it was a new way of eating! I don't think I'd ever tried zucchini or squash that wasn't fried!


The first week I lost 9 lbs!!! I was so excited! The weight literally started falling off. I lost something (smallest was 1/2 lb) EVERY week once I started the program. I averaged about 2 lbs per week.

Coni Campbell lost 74 lbs on Calmwm's weight loss program!

In no time, I was going down sizes. People I knew began to notice and compliment me. The fact that it was so noticeable so quickly gave me the encouragement I needed to go on! I am embarrassed to say I started at 222 pounds - the heaviest I've been in my entire life! By June 2013 I was down 74 pounds! I wore a tight size 18 pants and a 1x-2x top. Today, I am in a size 10 pants and medium tops! Buying clothes is fun again! I don't have to go to the 'fat lady' department to buy clothes! And, I can buy clothes anywhere! I don't have to be embarrassed and wonder if they have 'my size'.

Have I exercised? - a little! Not a lot though.

My BMI has gone from 36.9 (which was the high end of obese!) to NORMAL - yes, I said NORMAL!!! All of my blood work is now 'normal' as well. And, when I went for my annual physical this year, my doctor was amazed! He smiled and told me he was officially unchecking the 'obese' mark on my charts! I can't tell you how GOOD I feel! I no longer ache. I sleep sounder – and I don't snore anymore! Not carrying around all that extra weight makes a huge difference!

My daughter got married on August 3, 2013 and I can't tell you how it felt to know that I 'did' it! I made up my mind that it was time to get the weight off and I actually accomplished it! I promise, if I can do it, anyone can! My only regret is waiting until I was 44 years old to make the decision to lose the weight!


Thanks for sharing your story with us Coni. Congratulations on your weight loss success!
