From a Size 18 Divorcee to a Sexy Curvy Size 12/14 Newlywed

weightlossphiladelphiadietdoctorsCongratulations to Susan who dropped from a size 18 to a curvaceous size 12/14. First let me say that Susan gave us permission to tell her story and she actually insisted we tell her story in hopes of helping people in her same situation.

In our medical weight loss program people come to us to help them lose weight for so many different reasons. Some people may have to lose weight because of health reasons while others are looking to lose weight for some type of family or school reunion and then some are just looking to lose weight to fit into a bathing suit before their vacation.  

And for some losing weight can be a triumphant personal victory and such is the case with Susan. You see Susan was a happily married 57-year-old  woman with 3 children.  But as it turns out Susan’s husband was not quite as happy as she was and he left her for a much younger woman.

Financially Susan was left secure by her husband because he was a very successful businessman but emotionally she was totally devastated.  It took quite a bit of time for Susan’s friends to finally convince her to start dating, to get her life back.

And being good friends they set her up on lots of blind dates but sadly there was never a 2nd date. Finally Susan had enough and she decided it was time to do something about her situation.

She decided to find love again.

Susan’s first visit with us was not easy. She gave us every reason why the program was not going to work for her.  She also told us that she was never a skinny girl. She was never a size 4, she was never a size 6. But just like we tell all of our patients not everyone is meant to be a size 2, not everyone is meant to be a size 4 or even a size 10. You just have to be happy with yourself and be the best possible you that you could be. I explained to Susan that in our program we take into consideration your body type. And we try to help you appreciate the body that God gave you.

If you are a curvy lady be thankful for the curves that God gave you and if you are a skinny lady be thankful for the body that God gave you. Our program is all about appreciating yourself. 

While we do help people that must lose lots of weight we also help ladies (and men) that just need to  lose a tummy fat, thigh fat and maybe some arm fat and then just tone everything up with walking and maybe even some resistance training just using rubber bands that they sell in the stores that are inexpensive. So again our program is designed to help you be the best you. Our goal is to help you appreciate who you are and what you are. And as it turns out Susan also found a gentleman who definitely appreciated her curves.

In her first visit with us we explained to Susan that the appetite suppressant medications work extremely well at controlling your appetite and  we even  showed her little tricks to do if she did happen to be hungry especially late at night. Well Susan put her best effort into the program and now she is enjoying her honeymoon.
