How did this happen? One minute you were slipping into your clothes without a second thought and the next minute you were rifling through the closet in search of a bulky sweater to cover that muffin top.

The pounds have crept on over the course of a few months, or a few years, and suddenly you wake up and realize the awful truth.

You need to lose weight or go to a bigger size.

Before you spend too much time beating yourself up about it, Vickie Evans, owner of Form You 3, would like to introduce you to a proven weight-loss program that can have you dropping 1-3 pounds a week and back in those smaller sizes in no time.

“It starts with an individual consultation, weigh-in and body mass index screen,” Evans explained. “Then we determine which plan is best for you and your lifestyle.”

Form You 3 offers two different options, each tailored to your individual likes and dislikes and each supervised by a personal weight-loss counselor who serves as your sounding board, guide and all-around cheerleader.

“This is a very supportive environment,” said Evans, who has owned the wildly successful Form You 3 since 1991. “It’s not intimidating. We’re here to guide you gently so you can achieve your goals and permanently keep the weight off.”

The Traditional Program is based on regular grocery store foods plus four Form You 3 food products designed to curb sugar and carb cravings. If you can cook meals at home, this is the right option for you. “People on this plan lose 1-2 pounds per week on average,” Evans said.

The Aggressive Program includes one regular meal each day supplemented by three meal replacements. On this plan people can expect to lose 2-3 pounds a week.

It’s important to note that both plans were created by doctors, dieticians and nurses. “These are sound, proven weight-loss programs, not fad diets,” Evans said. “If you follow the program, you will lose weight. Most diets fail because people are hungry or the plan is difficult to follow. Our plan is easy to follow, and you will not be hungry. It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet.”

The beauty of the Form You 3 plan is you can still participate in regular activities, like attending parties and dining out. The difference is you’ll be armed with the knowledge necessary to make healthy choices.

But if shedding fat in a few trouble zones has you struggling to look and feel better, Evans said the center’s new LipoGenics noninvasive laser treatment service, which will be launched this year, could be a perfect option.

“It targets stubborn fat cells, opening them up so they can release what’s inside,” she explained. “Targeting trouble spots three times a week for three weeks results in measurable fat loss and reshaping. It’s a game changer.”

While fat is being flushed from the body even after treatment, folds of skin are tightened, cellulite is eliminated and scars are minimized. You can find out more about introductory pricing for by calling the center.

Enrolling in the Form You 3 program is easy, but a one-year commitment is required. “In addition to the weight-loss phase of the program, there is also a maintenance phase. We’re there to support you all the way,” Evans said.

Once you’ve enrolled and gotten started, weekly weigh-ins and a food journal help to keep you accountable.

Your weight-loss counselor will touch base to discuss events that might be triggering poor habits and help you navigate them. Members also can treat themselves to Form You 3 herbal body wraps or opt for a weight-control patch that helps to curb cravings.

The cost averages out to just $8.17 per week, but in celebration of the center’s 36th anniversary, Evans is offering a 36 percent discount for a limited time. “This offer will not be available again this year, so now is the time to get started,” she said.
