Kirk M: Weight Loss Success Story

My weight loss journey started about a year before I came to Scottsdale Weight Loss Center. I was tired of feeling and looking the way I did, and I did not like what I was seeing in the mirror every day. I started swimming for my exercise since at that time going to the gym to participate in high impact exercises was not realistic for me. I joined LA Fitness in South Gilbert and had to relearn how to swim in a more efficient way to aid in my weight loss. I was eating healthy, reading food labels and exercising, but I was still gaining weight. I couldn’t figure it out so I made an appointment with my primary care doctor. I found out I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol and was given medications to treat the symptoms. I didn’t just want to treat these conditions, I wanted to fix them! [Read more]

Joyce S: Weight Loss Success Story

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 F: Weight Loss Success

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.” [Read more]

Jennifer K: Weight Loss Success

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. [Read more]

Kim C: Weight Loss Success

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. [Read more]

Gina: Weight Loss Success

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! [Read more]

Chuck H: 66 lbs Weight Loss

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]

Roger D: 65 lbs Weight Loss

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]

Dolores M: Weight Loss Success

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]
