In my clinical practice I run into these all the time. These are such common issues that I would say I’ve experienced several in my own life. Take a look a them and see if any might fit you as well. If so, consider making an appointment with your physician or our Wellness Nurse, Katie Ellis, to talk about them. These are hurdles not road blocks. With a little perspective we can recognize them as molehills not mountains. We can get over them, go around them, and even blast through them.
How many people do you know, I mean personally know, that have lost more than 25 lbs? What about 50lbs? 100 lbs? 200lbs? I dare say that very few of you personally know anyone who has lost 200lbs. Now throw in that it has to have been done without surgery or without weight loss drugs or fly-by-night clinics. They can’t have been on a game show either.
Terri Stewart, RN, CPT is one of our trainers and wellness coaches at VitalSigns. She has a phenomenal story of improving her health and losing 200lbs of excess weight all by doing the right thing. She worked hard and ate well. She specializes in walking with you through your own journey towards health.
You can connect with her at our VitalSigns facilities and even arrange an appointment to let her help you figure out a course of action to improve your own health.
We’ve documented 340 lbs of weight loss by lifestyle change by patients seen since we put our celebration wall up on Wednesday. Six people have documented normalization of their numbers indicating their illnesses are under control. One person has removed a diagnosis (ie, been cured) and one person has stopped a medication.
