“My name is Jeanine, and I am 55 years old. I have known about Obesity Solutions and the Medical Weight Loss Program, but had never considered it for myself. I thought that it wasn’t for people like me who just needed to lose about 30-40 pounds.
For years now, I have been on the weight roller coaster, up and down. I have tried many diets and would lose weight but that is exactly what they were, diets. I could never manage to keep the weight off. It seemed I would gain what I had lost and more. The Medical Weight Loss Program is much more than just losing weight.
I was always very self conscious about my weight. I didn’t want my picture being taken because I didn’t like the way I looked. I didn’t want to go shopping for myself because nothing fit right. Before I started the program, I had gone shopping and I refused to buy the next size up. I knew I had to do something.
I decided to try the Medical Weight Loss Program. After having blood work, an EKG and meeting with Dr. Javellana and Sheenagh King in September of this year, I started on the (VLCD) Very Low Calorie Diet, drinking 4 shakes a day for a 6 week term. The shakes are very good and they are very filling. They are packed with protein so you do not feel hungry and they have all the daily vitamins and nutrients you need. At twelve weeks on the program, I changed to the (LCD) Low Calorie Diet, drinking 3 shakes a day and eating one sensible meal.
One of the things I enjoy most about the program is the weekly support groups, where you join together with others on the program to share your accomplishments and challenges. The groups are led by Dr. Javellana, Sheenagh King or other staff members and it is always encouraging. The groups are well-rounded and address every angle, teaching us about nutrition, behaviors and exercise. Yes, it takes determination on your part to drink a shake while everyone around you is eating, but the doctors, dietician and staff at Obesity Solutions are here to encourage and support you.
Since I started on the program, I have lost over 30 pounds and am now on maintenance. I continue to drink 2 shakes a day because I like them and it is easy, with one sensible meal a day. I never want to go back to the place I was before.
I would encourage anyone that wants to lose weight to try the Medical Weight Loss Program at Obesity Solutions. You won’t regret it, I haven’t.”Are you ready to start losing weight?
