An escalating weight issue:
"At the age of 16 my weight problem had already begun," says Rene P. "Each year I gained more and more pounds. A combination of stress and poor eating habits gradually caused my health to deteriorate."
A health nightmare:
"In April of 1997 my condition had become so serious that I was hospitalized," he says. "My medical report said that I was suffering from 'morbid obesity.' I was barely mobile and had difficulty breathing with the least physical exertion. My circulation was poor, and I had terrible varicose veins because of my excess weight."
The turn around:
"In May 2000, my weight reached an all-time high of 458 pounds. That was when I made the decision that would change my life. On the 29th of May I began the Herbalife nutritional program. After the first week I experienced an extraordinary increase in energy. After one month I had lost 32 pounds. I continued to lose weight consistently day after day."
"I set myself the goal to lose half my weight within a year and was overjoyed when I achieved my objective. I now know that with Herbalife all goals and dreams are achievable. I am living proof that Herbalife products work for weight loss and help you achieve balanced health. My self-confidence has grown and I now enjoy life to the full," enthuses Rene.*
