My name is Laurie Magett & 8 years ago, I made the concious and scary descion to change my life. At almost 300lbs, I was exhausted from being overweight and completely overwhelmed with everyday tasks. I decided to step into a WW meeting to see what it was all about and I cant imagine where my life would be if I didn't. In the first 6 months of my weight loss journey, I learned portion control and started introducing light exercise into my daily routine. I was 55 lbs down when my husband & I actively started trying to conceive. We struggled with infertility and chose to undergo IVF. The weekend before I was to start my injectables, I received a call from my doctor that they had a meeting within their practice and that they collectively decided that my BMI was too high for them to put me under anesthesia so I went back to the drawing board & pushed myself to loose another 40 lbs. I gave birth to twins and 9 months after that I was pregnant, naturally, with our youngest. I was still morbidly obese and now the mother of 3 babies under 18 months old. I decided enough was enough, I had lost myself by being everything for everyone and desperately needed to do something for myself. I rejoined WW for the last time and now have lost over 140 lbs from my heaviest weight. In November of 2018, I trusted Dr. Lee with my mommy makeover to remove an extensive amount of loose skin and I have never felt more confident in my life. I now dedicate most of my days to sharing my story & guiding others to take a leap of faith and trust in the journey of weight loss and help them become heathier, happier versions of themselves.
