We are so proud of all of our Children and Adolescents that we get the privilege of working with in our BOUNCE program! We like to feature specific younger patients a couple of times a year and this month we are happy to share Stacy’s story with you.
“Hi everyone! My name is Stacy and I’m 16 years old. Ever since I was young, I was always heavier than all the other kids. This made me feel left out, self conscious, and virtually left me with no self esteem. My mom tried every diet plan she could think of with me, but nothing seemed to work. All I wanted to be was “normal” and healthy. When I entered high school I was miserable, and it really affected my personality and my family. One day my mom came across Dr. Scinta and made an appointment with her.
I was embarrassed about losing weight at such a young age, and decided not to go back, I was foolish and thought I could do it on my own. A few months later I came to the realization I did need help and Dr. Scinta was more than willing to work with me. Not only did she help me lose weight, she helped me to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. Now that I’m closer to me weight loss goals, Dr. Scinta is suggesting specific workouts I can do to tone desired areas of my body and how to gain muscle quickly. She has helped me in so many ways, I can’t thank her and the team enough!”
