Ted’s 87 lb Weight Loss Success Story
We are thrilled to honor Ted as October’s Patient of the Month. Ted has lost an incredible 87 lbs since starting the program! While Ted is still on his weight loss journey, he has already discovered the amazing benefits to losing weight by improving his physical mobility and creating a closer connection to his family. Here is what Ted had to say about his weight loss:
For the last six years my weight had increased to an all time high. My doctor for 15 years had said for my age all of my numbers in regard to my health had been normal, however with the excess weight I could become Insulin resistant. I definitely did not want to become Diabetic and deal with insulin. At the same time a good friend who I had not seen or talked to for some month’s met. I asked him how he did it? He let me know about Scottsdale Weight Loss Clinic and Dr. Z.
I called the clinic made an appointment last February, and since that time I have lost at least 87 pounds. Many of my friends have not seen me since the weight loss and when we retouched they were astounded at how much weight loss I had accomplished. The first question was how did I do it? I choose not to get in to stories, leveled with them and all I did was follow S.W.L.C.’S plan – eat as they told me and come in regularly (once a week – get weighed – normal tests etc.). I just said do it faithfully and you will lose the weight. It works no kidding – I personally like the classes about how to eat, how to work out and how to think about it all.
I must say this weight loss has given me some great new horizons – before I got heavy I played tennis, hunted and fly fished. The last few years I had cut it out. I no longer have sleep apnea, my lower back feels great, and my left knee no longer hurts. I am now sleeping well with no wake up’s. My weight loss is like a rebirth.
My daughter had not seen me since my weight loss – we met in Scottsdale last week – my five year old granddaughter Morgan said Grandpa your not fat any more – my daughter Lucia hugged me and cried and said ‘ dad I can get my arm’s around you’ – we both cried at the same time.
This weight loss is more than good and healthy it is a Blessing from The big guy (God). Thank you for the opportunity to tell you about my journey.
