Marissa: During middle school, I started gaining a lot of weight because I was eating pretty bad. I wasn't feeling good about myself because I was heavier than the other kids in my school. After I reached 200 pounds, I realized I need to stop.
My doctor recommended the Summa Health non surgical weight loss program. And then I met my nutritionist Alissa. I never thought that I would eat salmon. I love salmon. It's so good for you. There's your 23 grams of protein right there.
I exercise by doing some zumba workouts and by the marching band, of course. I started to lose weight. I felt like one of the happiest girls in the world. I really felt good about myself.
Being in the nutrition program at Summa Health has really changed my life. I hope that I will be a very big inspiration to other girls that are struggling with their weight loss too. I'm excited to see my future now, because I don't know what God has in store for me, but I hope something good is going to come out of it.
