Joyce’s Weight Loss Success Story
I Feel Like Myself Again:
I was told by my orthopedic surgeon that breaking my shoulder was a life-changing event. I thought he didn’t know how resilient and healthy I was, but I learned that he was right. He and my physical therapists were able to do wonders with my shoulder, but I was not allowed any exercise outside therapy. They were also right that had I fallen, I would not even have been able to catch myself. At the surgeon’s insistence, I was on Percoset (two days of therapy), so I could not even drive for 7 months. My body atrophied and I gained weight… a LOT of weight. I felt like my body had been taken over by an imposter that I did not even recognize in the mirror, and I was SO TIRED all the time.
I was able to lose much of the added weight over a three and one half year period, but it was taking way too long. My doctor recommended Dr. Ziltzer at Scottsdale Weight Loss Center. I lost twenty pounds back to my weight before breaking my shoulder in just two months… and this is while traveling and vacationing! Then, I continued to lose another twenty pounds back to my weight when I met my husband twenty-five years ago!! And I did it on the food plan. And it was easy. Though I was given a prescription if I needed it for hunger, I never filled it. How can you be hungry eating every 3 hours?
I feel like myself again. I have gone from a size 16 or even 18 to a size 10, and my energy level is back.. ask my friends. I fell like doing fun things again. We are working out at the gym frequently and golfing again. I am also looking forward to playing tennis again, so call me for a game!
The only constant about my weight is that it has been constantly changing. With the help of Scottsdale Weight Loss Center, I have every confidence that I can maintain a healthy weight. THANK YOU, Scottsdale Weight Loss Center. I feel like you really care.
