lost 59 lbs. in 26 weeks at MWLC Warren*
The biggest struggle I had was pain in all of my joints from the excess weight. I looked terrible in pictures and buying clothes was not fun because everything had to be shortened. Getting in and out of my two door Camaro was very hard. Tying my shoes, putting lotion on my body, clipping my toe nails were all things that took extra effort. Being only 10 pounds lighter than my husband was heartbreaking to me.
When I started this program, I knew it would work because I wanted it to so bad. My family and friends were so supportive and have cheered me on the whole time. Dominek, Jennifer, Renee and Kelly have not only been here to weigh me in, but have guided me and cared about me every step of the way. This has changed my life and I still can’t believe it’s me when I look in the mirror. Thank you MWLC for helping change my life!
How has my life changed?
My life has changed in so many ways. Physically, I feel like I’m in my 20’s again and I just signed up to do my second 5K race. Emotionally I have a hard time explaining it because I get choked up. I never realized how much my weight bothered me until I lost it and now I can’t believe I lived with it for so long. I have gone from a size 16 down to a 4, from an XL to an XS. I have friends and family that have said they didn’t recognize me on Facebook.
My advice to others:
When starting Medical Weight Loss Clinic, first you have to want it. You have to know this is going to be a change of lifestyle, not just a quick fix. When given the journal, you have to use it so that you are accountable for what you are doing. Take advantage of all there is to offer. Ask questions and be open.
