Sonia: 65 lb Weight Loss
We are proud to ring in the New Year with Sonia as January’s Patient of the Month. She has reached her goal weight by losing an amazing 65 lbs! Sonia was finally able to lose weight and keep it off after trying for almost a decade. She has discovered what losing weight can do to improve not just one’s appearance but how they feel and function as well. Here is what Sonia had to say about her weight loss:
2010 is the first year I actually wrote down a New Year’s resolution and stuck to it. My goal was to lose 60 pounds and I did it thanks to SWLC. Going from a size 18 wide to a size 8/10 makes shopping for clothes fun again. After trying for 8 years to lose weight, this is the only diet plan that worked for me. I believe it has a lot to do with the meals being ready for you, the products are great, and the visits to the weight loss center were so encouraging, including a friendly staff to help you.
I now love to exercise, I go to the gym every day and it is not a job. I look forward to it. I have been on maintenance for 5 months and have lost a total of 65 pounds. I feel so much better, no more blood pressure pills, and my cholesterol is normal again. Having Rheumatoid arthritis has been a challenge for me, but losing all that weight helps my joints. I am happy to be eating all the foods I love, but I stick to lower fats and watch my calorie count during the week. I have some of my favorite foods I had missed as a reward on the weekend for being so good. I weigh myself at least 3 times a week, but stay away from Mondays! My friends, family and others are still making comments that make my day. Thanks SWLC for giving me a healthy lifestyle back!
