I have been fighting weight gain all my life. When I turned 40, the weight just piled on and I became depressed and unhappy with myself. After multiple failures with diet fads and workout plans, I decided to try LetsLose to see if I could regain my self-esteem again. I reached out to the team in Calera as a last result before trying to go to the extreme of a medical procedure. To my surprise this has been the greatest experience. The support and guidance of the staff has been great. I learned how to eat properly and adjust my lifestyle to help with my weight loss, I was no longer dieting, I was changing my lifestyle. Now 6 months later I am down 35 pounds, 3 dress sizes and still losing. I feel great and I don’t starve myself anymore. Thank you LetsLose for helping me feel good about myself again and providing me with the support and tools to help me achieve and maintain my weight loss goals.
I am 63 years old. I suffered from being overweight with shortness of breath, no energy, and high blood pressure. I started on the Advanced Weight Loss Clinics’ diet in April. After three months, I lost 28 pounds and dropped several sizes in my clothes. I now have energy, my blood pressure is in a good range, and I don’t have shortness of breath. I no longer have to have someone else to do my pedicure; I can now do my own without cutting off my breathing! I feel this is a good program if you are serious about losing weight.
One day I went for my annual physical check. Everything checked out O.K., but my blood pressure was high. I was shocked when the doctor wrote the word “obese” on the diagnosis. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Something had to be done.
I thought that I could lose the weight on my own. I had been on so many diets all of my life only to lose weight, then gain back even more than I had lost. So, when a friend told me about Advanced Weight Loss Clinics in August, I decided to give them a call. That was the best decision of my life. With the support of the staff, Tera, Aquala, and Ragan, I have lost 61 pound so far, with several more to lose.
I have learned portion control. I had been eating healthy food, just too much of it. No wonder the pounds would not come off! I have learned to make mini goals instead of looking at the whole picture. I broke my goals down to 10 pounds at a time.
Now I feel more energetic and more self-confident. I feel so proud when someone asks me if I have lost weight. I still have at least 25 pounds to lose and I know that the staff at LetsLose will be supportive the whole way.
My name is Cari Newlin. I joined Advanced Weight Loss in January. When I started the program I weighed 238 lbs., the heaviest I have ever been. With the encouragement and support of Angela and Debbie I have taught myself healthy eating habits and exercise at least four to five days a week. Today my weight is at 159 and look forward to continuing on my path to my goal weight and a healthier life. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff at the McCalla clinic.
We have been to several different weight loss clinics and have by far enjoyed the one in McCalla, AL. The staff is very professional, polite, and friendly. They make you feel at ease and they are very encouraging and supportive.
I spent most of my time trying not to make an impression. I would never speak up or start up a conversation. I would not do a lot of things that I wanted to do. I always worried about what people thought about me. See, I weighed 321.8 lbs and still going. I could eat a whole pizza and still go back for more. I used food as a shield, a buffer between me and the world. There was nothing you could tell me that I would listen too. I knew I was identified by my weight because all the people around me where not like me. They didn’t have my problem and how could they tell me what to eat and how to exercise. So, there I was a 29 year old and 321.8 lb women. I hated myself and I couldn’t stop eating.
Then I decided for both of my children, especially for my 7 year old daughter’s sake. I did not want her to end up like me. Children learn from what they see. I would not be fat by the time I’m 30. There was this place that just opened in the town I lived in called The weight Loss Clinic. My mom and dad encouraged me to go. My dad even gave me the money to get started. I told myself this will not be another failed attempt. So, I called and set up an appointment. The ladies there made me feel comfortable and not ashamed of who I was. Guess what I came back. I lost 7 lbs my first week. I could hardly walk but I just did a little at a time. I changed my diet and exercised more everyday. Now I can jog. I can’t believe it. I have friends that go with me too. My whole life has changed. I started the clinic in March and by August I had lost 100 lbs.
I’m a different person now. I was always a big girl. I had never lost 100 lbs. I still have about 50 lbs to go. I think me and the ladies at the clinic can do it. My children get a new mommy who is not sad all the time and my husband, who never ever made me feel bad, gets a new wife. Someone he can be proud of. My mom and dad get a new daughter. Shopping with my mom is fun now. I bought 3 new pair of high heels to wear. Before I lost the weight I was afraid I would break them. I don’t worry about what people think anymore and I always want to leave my impression now. I thank God for keeping my will strong, my family and friends for support, and the ladies from The Weight Loss Clinic for their encouragement.
First, let me say I’ve lost a total of 103 pounds. I started my weight loss journey at 343 pounds with Lets Lose in April. My original goal was 250 pounds but I have exceeded that and have set my new goal at 220. Although, it has not been easy, the encouragement of the staff in Prattville has helped me through it all. I think they are great.
The supplements and weekly injections boost my metabolism, give me the energy I need and suppress my appetite while making me feel great.
I can actually get out in the yard and play with my son, even do a cartwheel now. My son is 8 and he can hug me now and get his arms wrapped all the way around me. THAT REALLY MAKES ME SMILE! My weight loss has helped my marital status and so many other circumstances in my life. When asked to give my testimony, I was honored! Thank you.
I have been a patient in the Trussville office since March. As of today’s weigh in, I have lost a total of 80 lbs!
The entire staff has been so amazing through this journey. They have helped keep me motivated and encouraged me the entire way. I have gotten to know Emily especially, and love her bright smile and encouragement whether the scale was up or down or staying the same.
This has been months of hard work, the shots and vitamin mixtures have helped me so much. I did not take the RX that I could have, instead I put my mind in order and changed my life! Along with your program, walking at least 4-5 times a week (2-4 miles) and using MyFitnessPal to track every bite I ate. I am much less the woman I was.
I am a mom to 7 (4 adult, 3 minors), I homeschool, work full time and pretty much have a crazy and complex life. But I decided it was time to become healthy for my family and for myself!!! God placed me in a fabulous church, where I also found so much encouragement – and above all help from the Lord above!
I have never felt (or looked) better. I am not at the end of the journey, just excited about where I am going. I LOVE the Trussville team!
