Transformation of the Day: Jacquole lost 30 pounds. She was tired of feeling tired, angry, stressed, and unhappy. She just wanted to be the best version of herself for her family and see her Crohn’s Disease symptoms improve. The Optavia program worked for her.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up? My Why is I wanted to be the BEST version of myself for my husband and children.
