Debbi’s 50 lb Weight Loss
This program helped me not to get lost in sadness and instead move forward to an exciting and special second chance in life!
I started my weight loss journey at the end of 2008 at the insistence of my then husband. I hit this program running and was fortunate enough to meet a girl named Karen in one of my weight loss classes. Karen and I began hiking five days a week and the weight just seemed to fall off. During this time my husband informed me that he wanted to end our marriage of 26 years. Needless to say I was devastated! Besides my faith and family, which both mean the world to me, I had the support and encouragement of the staff and friends I made in Scottsdale Weight Loss.
Instead of wallowing in depression, I threw myself into taking care of myself inside and out! I continued to lose weight and maintained my exercise routine even as I moved into a condo, started a new job, and began living life solo for the first time ever at the age of 46. My weight loss success as well as the constant encouragement of the staff at SWLC enabled me to pursue the job of my dreams (Social Work dealing with children in need), and eventually to marry a sweet man who I knew from church. Now at age 51 I have maintained a healthy weight, continued an exercise regimen, and feel great! I never would have thought weight loss would be more than a way to help me feel and look better, but this program helped me not to get lost in sadness and instead move forward to an exciting and special second chance in life!
