Keep the Change!

We’ve been seeing  a lot of change in our office lately!  No, I’m not referring to dimes and nickels and quarters, or even nurse Kristin’s new hairdo.  The change is YOU, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!  We’re seeing dramatic metamorphoses from athletes, radio announcers, doctors, lawyers, butchers, bakers, students, and grandmas (to name a few), but this cross-section of humanity shares a common denominator…..they have been changed for the better!

Below are some testimonials, mostly taken directly from our Facebook Fan page.  I trust that they will encourage you as you strive to make some positive changes of your own, and begin to “live life again.”

We would love to hear your story too!  Feel free to post on our Facebook Fan Page or send us a message and we can post it in our patient stories section.

Our Patient Testimonials

“1st & foremost, I wanted to change my life, I wanted to change my look, I wanted to be able to do physical things with my son. Like play football, go walking, ride a bike & all in all to do outdoor things.

“It’s a victory for my health.  It’s a victory for my family.  It’s a victory for my life.  I guess you could call it my “new” life.  I have far to go and much hard work to put in to keep my side of the bargain (exercise-and-diet-wise). But I believe I’m equipped with the tools, the plan, the motivation and the doctor I need to help me achieve all of my health-oriented goals.”
- Ben Rogers, Aug. 23, 2010

“I lost 19# & now I weigh 244# which is down from 263#. I spent 2 wks in SA & it was a big test for me to see if I could stay disciplined and focused. I cont to get up at 4-5am every morning & work out. I ate the proper foods and was very happy with the results.”

“My waste is down six plus inches and counting, and my shirts are no longer a Big and Tall store ONLY proposition.  This weekend, I had the pleasure to perusing the thread offerings of the masses for the first time in several years as I now find myself back in the 2X shirt size market — as opposed to the 3XLT area I’ve been camped out in for some time.”
- Ben Rogers, Sept. 26, 2010)
