In October 2011, Nan DeGroat sat on her closet floor and cried.

A size 16 dress lay next to her, and not even that would fit anymore. She was 39-years-old and she couldn’t remember a time when she wasn’t haunted by thoughts about weight and size. Maybe sometime before she was 18 and unexpectedly pregnant. Or maybe after her second pregnancy a year later. Certainly the struggle was there in her 20s, as she waited tables, changed careers, became a math teacher. She had tried every diet program imaginable. She had spent loads of money, had eaten hundreds of soy bars, and yet nothing had ever changed.

“I just couldn’t do it anymore,” she remembers thinking. “I was just gonna have to learn to be fat and happy. I was so consumed with what I looked like, how I felt, what kind of clothes I wore… I didn’t want to go to events. I was always the picture taker. All of my photo albums with my boys being little, I was hardly in any of them. So when I look back, I don’t even have memories of us together, because I didn’t want to be seen.”

Devastated, Nan decided to try the diet her aunt Juanita told her about three months prior. It was based on the weight loss protocol of noted obesity physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. The diet incorporated natural supplements to support a low-calorie plan. But it had worked. Nan’s 60-year-old aunt lost 50 pounds in about 4 months.

“It was completely liberating. I felt self-control, had my discipline back. I didn’t mind walking into a room and I didn’t mind being in a photo. I really did find me again.”

Nan lost 50 pounds in two months. Her husband lost 72 pounds in 72 days. Soon teachers and staff were coming to Nan’s classroom to hear her speak about her experience. In August 2012, she resigned from her teaching position and dedicated herself to helping others who had struggled as she had.

Nan formed Breakthrough M2 based on Dr. Simeon’s basic concepts, intertwined with all she had learned over two decades of weight loss attempts. In 2017, Alula Wellness was born, providing a platform from which to help people through all aspects of wellness and health. Breakthrough M2 remains the centerpiece, helping thousands along their own personal paths.
