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.

Twyla’s Weight Loss Success Story

They Changed My Life

I was always a thin, active person until about my mid 40’s. Along with some medical problems and menopause, I gained a substantial amount of weight.

Being heavier lowered my self-esteem, I felt tired, added more medical problems, such as high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, depression etc. I could lose a small amount of weight, but would give up and gain it all back. My daughter suggested Scottsdale Weight Loss Center. I was not confident, and I would give reasons such as, what if it doesn’t work and I waste my money. She told me, “Just try it, and if it doesn’t work or you don’t like it, stop going.”

Jennifer’s Weight Loss Success Story

They Changed My Life

One of the best feelings is walking into Scottsdale Weight Loss Center and seeing Dr. Ziltzer. My journey started in September 2015. Having struggled with my weight for my entire life, I was on the brink of despair as nothing seemed to work. You name the diet, exercise program, nutritional angle, I had done them all over the years with little or no success. Every where else in my life I felt like I had a way to meet my goals except for my body.

I worked with the amazing staff at SWC visiting them weekly, following the plan Dr. Z and I made together, attended classes and after 5 months hit my goal of losing 40 pounds.

Kim’s Weight Loss Success Story

I have more energy and can hike or walk for hours.

I have struggled with weight since having my kids. My weight has been up and down for years. I have tried several diets both self-driven and other major plans. Scottsdale Weight Loss was a plan my sister in law and I came up with while sitting on a beach eating candy. We knew we needed to do something and we chose to check out this place. We came in shortly after our return from our vacation in July 2016. I haven’t worn a bikini since my honeymoon and thanks to my time here with Dr. Primack and staff, I wore a bikini when we went to Costa Rica to celebrate my husband’s birthday in March of 2017. I felt great.

Gina’s Weight Loss Success Story

The Goal Isn’t To Be Perfect. The Goal Is To Get Better and to Never Ever Stop

My struggle in managing my weight began shortly after I was married in 2001. Between my full-time career as an Industrial Engineer and raising 5 children, I had very little time to think about myself and overall well-being. Carting the children to and from extracurricular activities meant there were many nights passing through a drive through window. It was our norm!

Chuck’s 66 lbs Weight Loss Success Story

The best thing I did was call Scottsdale Weight Loss Center… I’ve lost 66 lbs. in 5 months!

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.

Roger’s 65 lbs Weight Loss Success Story

All of My Fat Clothes are Gone

“I will never buy bigger pants!” That is the mantra Dr. Ziltzer taught me when I met my weight loss goal. All of my fat clothes are gone.

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.

Dolores’s Weight Loss Success Story

Made me stronger not to fall back to my old habits.

When I kept gaining weight and I had no energy to get off the couch and be active or at least go for a walk, I was referred to Scottsdale Weight Loss Center by my primary doctor. I had no idea what Scottsdale Weight Loss Center was about but at my heaviest I have ever been I had to make a change in my life.

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? Then I stopped and thought about it, we all prepare or have a checklist for the important events in our lives camping, grocery list, vacation, but when it comes to our health and losing weight we tend to find every excuse in the book not to prepare or follow through a program. But remember I was willing to do anything to lose weight.

Traci C Weight Loss Success

“I feel GREAT and my family and friends have witnessed a total transformation”

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.

Fady’s Weight Loss Success Story

“This decision is yours and no one can make it for you”

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.
