My Profile Journey + Pregnancy

August 03, 2016 - Member Stories

Carole came to Profile searching for a lifestyle change and a weight loss solution.  Through a customized nutrition plan, activity education and motivation from her Profile coach, she was able to lose a total of 80 pounds*.  She was excited about her new, healthy lifestyle and was even more thrilled when she discovered she was pregnant after several years of trying to conceive.  Upon sharing the news with her Profile coach, she learned about the MOM program that was developed specifically for pregnant and nursing women to help them remain healthy, experience appropriate weight gain and assure adequate nutrition and activity recommendations are being met throughout pregnancy.  Not wanting to lose her momentum, she started on the MOM protocol.

Carole’s Profile coach created a meal plan based upon her individual needs as an expecting mother.  Her meal plan incorporated a variety of whole foods; including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and lean protein. Carole was pleasantly satisfied with the variety of nutritious foods she was able to enjoy.  She also found the Profile products, such as shakes and bars to be convenient and satisfying when on-the-go or experiencing a sweet craving!

The biggest motivator throughout Carole's pregnancy was to do all she could for her baby to be born healthy.  Her OBGYN eagerly supported her decision to remain with Profile through her pregnancy and was pleased with her healthy weight gain.  High blood pressure was a medicated health issue that Carole was able to reverse through her initial 80 pound weight loss with Profile and it remained at a healthy level throughout her entire pregnancy*.  Carole also credits her weight loss to her ability to successfully become pregnant*.

Now a beaming mother to a healthy and beautiful baby girl, Carole remains a Profile member, down a total of 118 pounds*. She is a true testament to the non-scale benefits that come from significant lifestyle changes and the commitment to taking advantage of the flexibility and customization of Profile.  No matter what phase of life you’re currently in, Profile can help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
