Traci’s Weight Loss Success Story
I feel GREAT and my family and friends have witnessed a total transformation
In December I felt terrible about myself. I had let my weight climb higher than ever. I knew I had to do something and FAST! I loved the structure of the meal replacement plan – no thinking involved and the meals were delicious! I remember in one of my first office visits I asked Dr. Ziltzer if I should change my goal weight to something more attainable but he reassured me that I could do it.
I hit my goal weight in April and then lowered it even more. I feel GREAT and my family and friends have witnessed a total transformation. I am happier, healthier, more active and confident. Many people tell me I look younger too! I lost 7 inches off of my waist and I’m down 3 dress sizes.
The hardest part was managing temptations at social functions. I found that asking for support from others and having a plan helped tremendously. When I started walking at least 10,000 steps a day I noticed the weight started to really come off. I have added spin classes, hot yoga and just started taking ballroom dancing lessons!
I attribute my success to Optifast, the accountability of weighing in every week and the classes. I attended all 20 classes and I am sure I will repeat several. The classes help so much in learning the importance of having a plan, being mindful and conquering all types of hunger. I have more tools for success now than ever and I am very confident that I will be able to maintain my weight now.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful the staff is at SWLC. Every time I walk in I am greeted by name and welcomed with a smile. Dr. Z is compassionate, encouraging and inspirational. I can’t thank SWLC enough. They have given me the tools to create a life that I thought only existed in my dreams!
