I started the program 17 weeks ago; I didn’t even register on a scale. My self esteem was at the lowest. My significant other, well, didn’t seem interested in me, and left me because I was too big for him. I basically became a prisoner in my own home. I had gotten so large that I didn’t even recognize me. I made a promise to myself that I would make changes in my life and I did. I changed my entire life. I came to the clinic in desperation. It was either do something about this or lose everything and everyone that mattered in my life. I knew that this would take diligence and dedication and I am, just like most tried the “diet” programs and pills that ultimately could have killed me, figured that this wouldn’t work. I was SO wrong.
Every week, I cam and every week I lost something, whether it was inches, pounds or both. I didn’t however lose faith thanks to the support team and all the effort that the staff and management give you when you become a participating partner in weight loss.
I began to really work the diet list, and it actually was simple to follow. Donna, the dietician, she is so motivating, so supportive. She always seems to find a way to take a negative weigh in and turn it into a positive experience. Dr. Lee, he is so patient and so concerned about his patients and the well being of that patient. You’re not in a managed care setting, you are the care, and you have helped to manage that. Karen, the office’s backbone, she makes you feel like you are the only person in the room and she pays attention to your needs as far as product knowledge, and appointments and your payments. In all actuality, the entire staff is beautiful and anyone that makes this decision to lose weight and to participate in the program, that is personally designed to your weight loss needs, can’t go wrong.
I haven’t met my goal yet. I still have 100lbs. to go. I know that there are many of us who are the big, beautiful and watched. I don’t want to be watched anymore, ridiculed when I pick my children up from school because I waddle when I walk or I have to stop every 10 feet because I can’t breath. I can stay dedicated and look at my children’s faces and see the happiness that it brings to them when I come home from these weigh ins and tell them Mom lost more weight. It makes it all much more worth the struggle for my success. I know with the proline protein products (they taste great by the way), the meal plans and the dedication and the support from the staff, I will see my children graduate high school and even college, get married and start their families. I even get to go back to my career in the medical field, now because I have lost enough weight, so far, that I am employable now. As far as relationships go, I have a new love in my life and he is so supportive of me than the one who left. The ex will be eating his heart out when I finish the weight loss.
This was definitely better than buying a Coach purse, I invested in myself. I can wear me now. I really like the way that I am feeling.
