Prior to my fitness journey I had just graduated. I stopped working out and I ate as I wanted. I became lazy, tired, unfocused, and I was excellent at making up excuses. Before I knew it I had put 20lbs on in a short amount of time. My joints ached and I never felt fully comfortable with myself. I started working with Go Figure 3 years ago and realized that I didn't want to feel like did. I followed Go Figures eating lifestyle and turned myself around. I lost the 20lbs I put on and decided that I wasn't going to stop there. I decided that I wanted to compete in NPC (National Physique Committee). After 5 months of strict training, I accomplished to stand on my first stage and leave with a 1st place trophy. Was it easy? No. Everyone's journeys are rocky but excuses and giving up only make it more rocky. I love helping others set goals and accomplishment them. Whether you have a little or a lot to lose, each day you're one step closer to achievement and I'm so thankful to be apart of Go Figure Missoula.
My name is Denise. In 1994 I had a major foot surgery on both of my feet following it up with several smaller surgeries over the next few years. The healing process had complications and my lymph system became substantially overwhelmed. Swelling had caused the pain levels in my feet and knees to rise and it became harder for me to be as active as I was used to being. Over the years my swelling turned into chronic edema and my lack of mobility caused me to start gaining weight. My extra fluid and weight had given my issues with sleep apnea, high blood pressure, borderline high blood sugar levels, and chronic pain. I had tried several weight loss programs however none seemed to last and nothing relieved my pain. In 2013, I started working with Jerusha Baker who is certified in complex decongestive physiotherapy (lymph drainage/lymphedema/chronic edema therapy). Working with Jerusha and my doctor we started lymph drainage therapy in my massage sessions and my pain levels and swelling started to drop. After getting my lymph system flowing at healthy levels again, at our appointment on April 24th Jerusha recommended seeing the ladies down at Go Figure as several of her clients have been having remarkable results with their program and B12 shots. Jerusha also stated that working with those clients on lymph system became more efficient than before they started. I contacted Misti and met with her on April 28th and decided I was all in. within the first month I have lost over 31 pounds, and 22.25 inches off my body (including an incredible 9 inches off my hips alone), down 2 sizes in shirts, almost 1 size in pants, but most importantly I can move better without the pain in my legs/knees that the lymphedema had caused. I have been feeling great, my energy is up, my pain levels are down along with my blood pressure and blood sugar levels, my sleep is better than ever and I wake up feeling rested. Best of all, I have hope and a realization that I don’t have to live in pain every day and my body can and I getting better. I feel blessed to have found Go Figure and I’m excited every day to see more and more results. The support that I have from an amazing team at Go Figure and Jerusha Baker I feel that I can finally get to where I want to be in the next 6 month and I can’t wait to see what that is.
Hi, I am a 38 year old with a 16 year old son, full time job, and I go to college part time. As you can imagine, I don't have a lot of free time. Cooking and what went into my mouth were the last thing on my mind. Fast food and restaurants is how my family ate. I had absolutely no idea of the amount of calories, fat and carbs I was eating on a daily basis but I can tell you this, when I finally stopped and looked in the mirror, I was 227 lbs. My back hurt all the time and my feet were killing me. I had to do something to get my weight under control. I couldn't do this on my own so I decided to get help.
Go Figure has been a blessing. Not only do they provide you with the information and medication to snap your brain back into shape, they have endless ideas for meals and snacks. I have never felt like someone actually cared about me and my health until now.
I have been going to Go Figure for 10 weeks and I am down almost 35 pounds and countless inches. My back doesn't hurt and my feet feel like they are brand new. The best thing about it is I haven't made HUGE changes to my life yet (still working, kid, college). I have only followed the plan and been committed to the program. If I can do it, anyone can. I am the person that would get up in the middle of the night and eat a handful of cookies because I thought I was hungry.
I actually look forward to going to my weekly appointment. It not only holds me accountable for what went in my mouth the week before, but Misti always has such kind words of encouragement. She makes me want to succeed even when I want to go to McDonalds and eat a super sized double cheeseburger meal.
I recommend Go Figure to anyone that needs help getting their weight under control. It will work for you too!! Thank you Go Figure, and thank you Misti!!!!
P.S. I went from a size 18 jean to a 13 in two months, and still going...
I have found that a high protien, low carb lifestyle works best for me. I am never struggling with hunger and I am more motivated more when I see results and get results with Go Figure."
I can honestly say that Go Figure has helped me change my life for the better. I had always been slightly over weight, but became significantly over weight after having my first child 13 years ago. I could never get the weight off and ended up becoming complacent with where I was at, not really caring one way or the other. I then had my daughter about 6 years later and the weight stayed on and only increased. I had tried programs out there and sure they worked in the beginning, gave you some quick results, but it did not seem to last long and the weight always came back.
What I like most about this program is that, YES, you can eat real food! You do not have to order specialized meals for you and cook different meals for your family. I think that we get comfortable with the conveniences that are available to us. I now take the time to read the labels before I buy, making smart decisions, something I never did before but it does make a difference. Also, I have learned to not deny myself if I have a craving, but I know that a small amount will satisfy that craving without going over board.
Currently I have lost over 80 pounds and at least 10 pant sizes and I cannot express the way I feel emotionally and physically with this success. I am at a loss for words what this program has given back to me. I know from experience the emotions that an over weight person carries, it ranges from depression, lack of confidence, and failure. I am now getting all that back and I have not felt like this in a long time. I could not have gotten this far without the support from my family and the wonderful staff at Go Figure. Thank you!!!
Thank You Misti and your girls and of course my wife for the support and guidance you gave me in my weight loss adventure. As with a lot of us, the “40’s” took their toll on me physically and when I hit 350 it was time for a change or die like the Dr. said. I tried some of the diets, ate cabbage, ate some dumb drops made from urine, but the only real way is a diet and life style change and the “want” to make it happen. Misti at Go Figure made that happen. With her gentle nudges and good sense of humor, along with a little bit of arm-twisting, I’m down to 220 and feel better than I ever did in my 30’s. It really was painless. My back quit hurting with the first #20 and I was one step from back surgery. My knees and ankles quit hurting. I have more energy than I need. (Wife hates that). Just a suggestion for those that try the program, when you hit your first milestone go to a hardware store and pick something up that actually weighs what you lost. For me it was my first 40 and it happened to be a box of joint compound. Go ahead and go pick one up and see what #40 really is. Now go try 120. That’s what I was carrying on my back. So glad that baggage is gone. My goal is 209 and Hope to be there by Christmas.
Try Go Figure Missoula. It works. Thank you again Misti!! You’re a lifesaver, you rock!
I was apprehensive at first thinking that Go Figure Missoula was predominately for women, but after struggling to lose the last few pounds to get to my goal, Misti encourage me to come in and give her program a try. I could not believe how much more energy I had for my workouts and my day to day routine. I was able to lose the pounds and reach my goal in a few short weeks! I would definitely recommend Go Figure Missoula to any male who wants to lose weight or gain more energy.
