Frank – 33 lbs Weight Loss
My weight loss journey has spanned many decades starting in my late teens and continuing to present day as I’m about to turn 54. My first major weight loss was at 20 years old when I lost 75 lbs. over the course of a year. My success at that point in my life came from the combination of a lifestyle change and the realization that a new routine changed my food choices which then led to an increased level of activity. As the years followed I was able to maintain my weight but it was always on my mind that it could come back someday.
Fast forwarding through my 30’s, 40’s, and now in my 50’s each decade presented a challenge with maintaining my desired weight. The various attempts to lose weight during this time period have included many different diets, gym programs, personal trainers and combinations thereof. All of which led to some level of success for a while but maintaining that weight loss was my downfall. I wasn’t able to hit that right combination of lifestyle change that gave me success in my early 20’s.
When I heard about Medical Weight Loss of New York and how it has been working for some acquaintances of my wife I decided to give it a try. From the first phone call the tone was set for my experience at the center. The staff was helpful, understanding, thorough, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I felt that for the first time I had the total package in my weight loss journey. We approached it from all angles with equal intensity, meaning that it wasn’t just about appearance, health, food, exercise or maintenance. It was about all of these aspects coming together to create a lifestyle change through medical monitoring, nutritional counseling, group discussion, one on one help and the encouragement of the entire staff.
When I started I had a goal in mind that was confirmed through my medical analysis. The plan put in place was challenging but doable with all the support that was available. Not only was I able to reach my goal in three months but I have successfully maintained my weight for more than two months now. I feel confident the tools I’ve been given will continue to aid in my success. My time with Dr. Scinta and her staff has put all the years of my weight loss journey into perspective. The right perspective and a perspective that I can take with me into the next several decades of my life ahead.
