The staff at SWLC would like to recognize Richard as August’s Patient of the Month. Richard has lost an incredible 57.5 lbs! Losing the weight has taught Richard the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits. For someone who never enjoyed exercising, Richard is now excited and motivated to work out and stay active. He is also off several medications and has found that his own weight loss has sparked inspiration for others to lose weight and get healthy. Here is what Richard had to say about his weight loss journey:
“The weight loss I have experienced with the assistance of the Scottsdale Weight Loss Center has been nothing short of life changing and was the easiest thing I have ever done. Being overweight for the better part of 15 years led to a steady decrease in my health and lifestyle due to issues such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, acid reflux disease, and pre-diabetes. My joints were hurting and I was horribly out of shape to the point that everyday activities such as walking and bending over were getting to be a chore.
The weight loss program at SWLC is a lifestyle change that helps you develop proper eating and exercise habits and they are there every step of the way to encourage you and ensure your success. The food products made it easy to regulate my food intake and writing down everything I ate also made a huge difference. The first week on the program I lost approximately 15lbs and it became a competition for me to see how much weight I could lose week after week until I reached my goal. I’m not a person who likes to exercise but once I started seeing the results, it actually made me want to exercise. My overall health is greatly improved; I don’t have to take medication for my blood pressure or acid reflux anymore and my blood sugar is normal.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t get compliments and comments from family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances regarding my weight loss but the most surprising thing has been the number of people who have come up to me and said I have been an inspiration to them. Being an inspiration to someone by losing weight never crossed my mind but it’s nice to know that with the help of SWLC, I not only made a positive change in my life but in other people’s lives as well.”
