Guest Blogger Maria: Introduction

1 Mar

My name is Maria and my journey with Medical Weight Loss Clinic has been incredible! I started MWLC in April of 2015 and I lost 50 lbs in just 4 1/2 months and I’m keeping it off! My 1 year anniversary is coming up in a month.  I am thrilled!  

Since I appeared in the commercial for Medical Weight Loss Clinic, I get asked so many questions, so I thought it might be a good idea to blog about it.  

I feel so grateful for Medical Weight Loss Clinic – it worked for me after struggling with so many other diets and programs.  I’d like to encourage others any way I can!  On a recent trip to Florida, I was able to climb our annual Banyan Tree for the first time in 3 years because of my weight loss!  Yay!  I’ve always been so active but that extra 50 lbs that I gained in the last few years prohibited me from doing fun things like that!

I’m often asked…

“How do you go out with friends or family and socialize for dinner while dieting?”

Honestly, I think when I first started my journey with MWLC, I thought to myself that I was not going to be able to go out to dinner with friends or family while I was dieting . I wasn’t going to like that at all if that were the case, but I found out differently.

I went out with friends for a nice dinner at the beginning of the program and was fine. I usually ask for a large salad with lots of vegetables and grilled chicken and I always ask for vinaigrette dressing on the side. I also ask if there are fresh vegetables for the day and whatever is fresh, I will order. My meal always is plentiful and filling and most of all, I’m having fun with my friends!
