For those trying to lose weight, the summer months can pose a specific struggle. Clothes are thinner, more revealing and if you’re not feeling confident about your body or good about your health, these warmer days come with an extra dose of anxiety – especially, it seems, for women.
“For our female patients during a consult when asked if there was anything they won’t do recreation-wise, most will answer ‘put on a swimsuit,’” says Kelly Hembree, Warren clinic manager at Medical Weight Loss Clinic. “It is hard to put on something so revealing when you are so uncomfortable in your own body.”
Experts like Kelly now know that there is really no need to dread slipping into your favorite swimsuit.
“My advice is to really try and stick to the plan and know that the goal you have set is reachable,” she says. “You will be in the suit of your choice someday. I know I am!”
Kelly isn’t just a clinic manager here. She personally lost weight on the program with Medical Weight Loss Clinic. She says swimsuit season is always a hot topic for her patients. She can relate to their concerns.
“I had never in my life worn a two-piece suit until I lost my weight 2 years ago,” she says.
That’s when she bought her first bikini – and now it’s all she wears come swimsuit season. She orders them online or from Victoria’s Secret and feels confident throughout the season.
“I used to wear tankinis with skirts to hide under and felt very self-conscious in my suits,” she says.
Kelly isn’t the only one who recently rediscovered a love for swimwear.
“Oh my - look at me in this suit!” says Tilla Abel, beaming with pride when sharing new summer photographs. “I would’ve never let you take my picture beforehand. I feel confident and beautiful now.”
Tilla joined Medical Weight Loss Clinic in Troy in June 2018 and is proud to share her successful journey – one that has made a life-changing difference in her confidence. Looking and feeling great in a swimsuit is just one part of Tilla’s transformation.
“Losing over 40 pounds was all I needed to get back to ME,” says Tilla.
“I get out and about I love to kayak and I love to ride my bicycle. I do it with ease now.
“Wish I didn’t work so much so I could do it MORE!”
