Mark’s 70 lbs Weight Loss

The genuine caring staff helped me change my way of living and thinking.

Mark's 70 lbs Weight LossI was sent to Scottsdale Weight Loss Center by my doctor because he saw I was not addressing my weight problem and it was beginning to seriously affect my health. As it was once put to me in conversation, “You seem to really enjoy groceries!” I had to finally admit I could not take care of my weight issue by myself.

I thought, incorrectly, I would just pay for some special food and the weight would drop off and that would be it. I wasn’t happy when I found there were classes to attend, but my wife said she would go with me so I grudgingly went. It didn’t hurt a bit. I learned something each class and my wife and the staff at Dr. Rodarte’s location in Chandler were the support combination I needed to focus on winning my personal war with myself.

I keyed on things like 3500 calories equals one pound of fat, and for every pound, I lost I took four pounds of pressure off my joints. Suddenly it did not hurt to just roll over and get out of bed and walk, and soon I found I didn’t have to be a contortionist and exhaust myself just to tie my shoes. After the first 30 pounds, I started exercising with gradual increases so I didn’t overdo it and hurt myself.

I had lost 10 pounds prior to my first appointment because I wanted to start losing right away, and since October of 2013, I have lost 70 pounds, achieved my goal weight, have more energy and my joints don’t hurt anymore. I can still have a “cheat” meal when I really want one, just not a cheat decade.

Thank you to Scottsdale Weight Loss Center and the genuine caring staff for helping me change my way of living and thinking.
