Wichita Falls, TX - A health trend is picking up steam across the country and it involves freshly cooked and frozen foods delivered to your door step.
Newschannel 6 talked with one North Texas woman who managed to lose 150 lbs and has been able to keep most of it off.
"I went to the doctor and they definitely put into perspective that the weight that I was at was going to eventually kill me."
Nicki Thomas at her largest weighed in at well over 300 lbs and now she stands 150 lbs thinner.
For so long, Nicki, a young and vibrant woman, said she had no life, but knew if she wanted to start living she would have to change her lifestyle.
"That was one of the biggest things, I still wanted to go out. I didn't want to feel locked into a diet," said Nicki.
After experiencing health complications Nicki knew it was time for her to take charge of her health.
It was my knees hurt, I was depressed, didn't want to do much of anything," said Nicki. “I had no energy, just wanted to sleep all the time and i was definitely looking at high blood pressure and diabetes."
As a young child in fourth grade, Nicki's battle with her weight began and has been an everyday struggle since. She said she's tried everything to lose and keep the weight off, "diet pills, shakes, protein bars, counting points, counting calories, adding everything up."
Unfortunately, nothing seemed to work, so she turned to personaltrainerfood.com, a food service out of forth worth that delivers fresh-cooked, frozen food, right to customers door step.
"Diets' your kind of imprisoning yourself to something, like you have to stick to one thing and that's it with this, I can go to any restaurant, and I can still follow the program and see great results, " said Nicki.
While her weight loss didn't happen overnight, Nicki said it was the best decision she ever made and it has given her a new found look on life.
"I can do anything I want to do and I proved it. I achieved stuff that people dream of every single day," said Nicki.
