I'm not where I want to be, but thank you Jesus I'm not where I once was. I encourage everyone to make the change and make it today. Don't wait or waste anymore of your life.
What do you do when you're feeling hopeless? I have struggled with my weight all my life, and at age 46, I was at my wit's end. Nothing had worked long term. I felt horrible about myself and felt hopeless to change that.
My doctor at Gill Family Medicine suggested their weight loss program as an option just to try it out, so I gave it a shot. But 500 calories a day? How in the WORLD would I do this? But I decided it was time to take a drastic step, and this seemed to be right, with doctors, a nutritionist, and nurses, not just me and my weak will.
So over the last 2.5 years, I have stuck to it. It has been a transforming experience for me. I have lost 100 pounds, no longer have high blood pressure, don't need my sleep apnea machine anymore, and still going! I attribute all of this to the complete system the weight loss clinic has developed.
In 12 weeks of the GFM Rapid Weight Loss Program, I have lost 61.8 pounds.
For many years I have struggled being overweight. I am naturally a big guy. Food is a weakness for me because I LOVE to eat! I have tried a few different diets and they work for a little while. I lose weight, but then I go back to my old habits.
I have been a patient at Gill Family Medicine for over 20 years. For the past 10 years or so every time I have had an appointment with Dr. Gill we have discussed my weight and my need to lose weight. In June 2013, at my semi-annual check up, Dr. Gill did not mention weight loss to me at all. Since I had been expecting it and was prepared for the conversation I was a little surprised so I asked him about it.
