“My life has changed dramatically in a relatively short period of time”
We are so proud to announce Dan as May’s Patient of the Month. Dan has achieved phenomenal accomplishments here at SWLC. He has successfully reached his goal weight by losing a total of 64 lbs and is now actively working to maintain. Dan has seen incredible changes in his life and is living in more balance due to the physical and mental changes he has made on his weight loss journey. Here is what Dan had to say about his weight loss:
“I often think about my success at SWLC and reflect back on how it was that I got here. After all, my quest to lose weight started over a decade ago and unfortunately, I must admit, it did not start with SWLC. Rather it began in the deepest recesses and darkest depths of the dieting world: The Fad Diet. The allure of which is self evident but with every inevitable failure looms the self-perpetuating downward spiral of confidence, motivation and hope.
And spiral I did!
Food offered solitude from the demands of life but came with an ironic twist; the more I consumed the better I felt but the worse things became. It was not until I found myself staring at my own reflection in the bottom of a peanut butter jar, spoon in hand, that I knew I had finally reached rock bottom. I needed something different. I needed a program that would enable me to change on the inside as well as the outside. I needed a proven process not a fad. What I needed was Scottsdale Weight Loss Center!
The team at SWLC equipped me with the tools to persevere through the three stages of my weight loss journey: The Physical, Mental and Perpetual!
Dr. Primack worked with me to design a custom plan that met my unique and specific needs. Not only was I able to make the plan work with my daily schedule but the weekly medical monitoring with Melissa added a level of accountability that helped me remain disciplined.
I found that when I finally committed to attending the lifestyle education classes my results accelerated dramatically. The classes helped me take a deeper look at the reasons behind my weight management struggles and led to a great deal of self discovery and improvement. I realized that in order to create lasting change I needed to define who I am, what I believe, where I want to go and why I want to get there. In so doing, I was able to find the motivation I needed to change old habits and redefine myself for a new future.
The classes also gave me the tools I needed to help prepare for life after reaching my goal weight! The lessons on fitness and nutrition provided me with the education I always needed but never found with previous weight loss initiatives. I feel I now have the knowledge and resources to create lasting changes for the rest of my life!
My life has changed dramatically in a relatively short period of time. Accomplishing my weight loss goals has led to a considerable boost in confidence and significantly impacted other areas of my life. I am living a more complete and balanced life and I approach each day with newfound zest and excitement!
Thank you Scottsdale Weight Loss Center!”
