BEFORE & AFTER
Lost 50 lbs so far
I am a mother of two boys and I'm a student. My weight has been fluctuating since the birth of my second child. I consider myself a "stress eater" - whenever I'm stressed out, I feel the need to eat. In addition, I love to have snacks and desserts every night.
My experience with Diet Doctors and their staff:
I discovered the Diet Doctors Medical Center while driving by. I then checked out their website and decided to visit their office for a complimentary consultation to see what they offered. All of their staff is very friendly and supportive. What I appreciate the most is that they listen to my questions and comments, and then offer helpful suggestions.
What motivated me to lose weight?
I want to be able to keep up with the activity levels of my two growing boys. Furthermore, I suffer from asthma, which is out of control at times, making breathing very difficult. I also began feeling pain in my feet due to the additional weight.
What were/are my biggest challenges?
My biggest challenges are the holidays and family gatherings because I'm constantly tempted to snack on appetizers and drink alcohol while socializing. And hearing my family say "you look good, but you need to eat" isn't very helpful either.
Special tip(s) I would like to share:
Making small, smart choices every three hours in addition to drinking water all day helps me with my weight loss. I've also developed a routine, which is very helpful: I visit Diet Doctors every week to get weighed, have my blood-pressure measured and receive my Vitamin B-12 injection for additional energy. This routine also allows me to get my questions answered immediately, which again, is helping my weight loss progress.
