Our weight loss journey began back in the fall of 2015. We were at an event and were talking to my Aunt Penny Stevens, who by the way lost 52 lbs. on the medical weight loss plan. She looked great, felt great and had a renewed look on life. Shortly after that I went to my primary physician, for a 3 month checkup, blood work etc. I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol and was tipping the scales at 276 lbs. The doctor wanted me to lose 15 lbs. from my last visit but I had gained weight. He told me I was caught at a crossroads in my life, he said you can continue down this road you are on which is going to lead to heart problems, poor heath and other things or you can make a change in your life. I have 3 children and I would like to see them grow up and have families of their own. I started to really think about my health and my future. My wife Tracy and I started discussing the weight loss thing and getting healthier. We both decided that after the holidays we would make an appointment and see what the program was about.
We started the program at the end of January on the partial replacement plan. I started out at 276 lbs. and Tracy was at 225 lbs. It would be a long road ahead of us but doing it together would make it easier. We’re not going to lie it was tough at the beginning but once you develop a routine and change your eating habits it becomes your new way of life. We also have had so much support from our friends and family that keeps us chugging on with this journey. It has been 10 months and I am at 217 and Tracy is at 177. We have not reached our goal weights but we’re closing in on them. We are confident that we will reach it and maintained our new us! We feel great and it feels humbling when people that haven’t seen us compliment us on how great we look. I am no longer on any blood pressure or cholesterol medication.
Last but not least the staff is AMAZING. We cannot express how friendly and supportive they have been. We couldn’t have done it without any of them they play a key part to our success. Several of our friends have decided to jump on the healthy wagon after being part of our experience and are seeing success with the program. We can’t stress enough how this has just changed our lifestyle and our outlook on life. We now have fun shopping and enjoy the experience unlike in the past. Thank you again to the staff, doctors, friends and our families for making us feel so great!
