Patient Results

I have been struggling with my weight for 25 years and have tried every diet out there with marginal success and ultimately failing, always gaining all my weight back each time. I heard about Scottsdale Weight Loss Center from a co-worker who had had great success, but was hesitant to try another plan. However, I finally decided I was mentally ready to try it. That’s something I feel is extremely important. You MUST be mentally committed to make these life style changes and I would go further to say if you’re not, then don’t bother. [Read more]

Thank you to Dr. Ziltzer and staff for helping me meet my weight control goal. I now have more energy and am much more active than I was, lugging an extra 65 pounds around with me. I had decided that I was retired from hiking Pinnacle Peak, because I was too old and out of shape. Pinnacle Peak is now back in my routine. It feels like a backpack has been removed from my shoulders and I am so much lighter on my feet. I am using different muscles to walk and I have a spring in my step that I didn’t remember, because I have been so overweight for most of my adult life. [Read more]

As soon as I walked into the Scottsdale Weight Loss Center office, aside from feeling embarrassed for allowing myself to get so heavy, the consultant made me feel very comfortable and confident I could do the program. She explained what the program was about and then she mentioned “Classes”! My first thought was “oh no classes” where am I going to find the energy to attend classes? [Read more]

In December I felt terrible about myself. I had let my weight climb higher than ever. I knew I had to do something and FAST! I loved the structure the meal replacement plan – no thinking involved and the meals were delicious! I remember in one of my first office visits I asked Dr. Ziltzer if I should change my goal weight to something more attainable but he reassured me that I could do it. [Read more]

When I walked into Scottsdale Weight Loss Center (SWLC) I wasn’t expecting much. I knew I wanted to lose weight but I did not know how. I knew I wanted to be healthier but I had not really taken action to get there. I was tired of the physical and mental load I was putting on myself but I remained motionless. The choice to come to SWLC was not easy but on the first day I made the decision that no matter what I was going to do this, no excuses. [Read more]

What an amazing journey with Dr. Ziltzer and his wonderful staff. They transformed my life by giving me hope, skills, support and unwavering commitment to make my plan successful. They completely understand how to help their patients go through the process. I trusted them from day one, followed their guidance, attended informative classes and it made all the difference.

I found the plan to be very easy to follow and lost weight very quickly and consistently. The classes have been extremely helpful in educating me about the choices I make and how to be successful at maintaining my weight. I have a new nick-name from my friends, “skinny.” [Read more]

Before I started my weight loss program I was pre-diabetic, and my blood pressure fluctuated from 140/92 to 136/92. I slept a lot and was tired most of the time before, and I didn’t exercise regularly. I was frustrated. I wore 2XL shirts, and my waist was a size 44. [Read more]

I had tried many “diets” before- Weight Watchers, phen/fen (>15 years ago), healthy eating—really? But, when I got to the point of buying larger and larger clothes and looking at pictures of myself- I made the decision- IT’S TIME! I was now convinced by that little voice in my head and the constant lectures from my daughter- herself a Personal Trainer and nutrition specialist- that it was time to get healthy. [Read more]

My weight loss adventure started over a year ago. I had just turned 42 years old and my weight had gotten out of control. Even when I was pregnant with three kids I had weighed less. I worked out three to five times a week, but my eating habits were horrible. I had a very good friend who had lost over seventy pounds from Scottsdale Weight Loss Center, and she had kept it off for over three years. I finally got the courage to make my first appointment and mentally made a decision to change the way I felt and looked. [Read more]
