Cindy W. Lost 140 LBS. – Weight Loss Center Cooper City, FL
When I went to visit the University Wellness & Weight Loss Center on March 31, 2010 I was in the worst physical shape of my life. I was 51 years old and felt like I was at least 70 or older. My friend Susan shared the website with me and told me that she had joined and thought I would like to try. She is one of my oldest friends and has watched my weight fluctuate over the last 25 years.
I was on prescription medication for cholesterol, menopause, acid reflux, hiatal hernia and osteo-arthritis. I couldn’t walk very far or stand on my legs & feet for more than 15 minutes.
I have tried every diet or weight loss plan out on the market (Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, Metabolife and the most recent Full Bar). None of these worked for me. I would lose the weight but put it right back on and would get frustrated when I would go weeks losing only 1 to 2 pounds.
I went to my medical doctor to see if he could give me some suggestions and was disappointed when he just said “I don’t care what you do, just do something”! I was at the point of considering bariatric surgery or the lap band procedure.
The night of my consultation with Dr. Schiff and his staff was the turning point for me. I talked with Dr. Schiff about my situation and never once did I feel like I was being judged for the way I looked or the shape I was in. The staff made me feel as though I had joined a special and extraordinary family.
I am no longer on any prescription medicine, my blood work is fantastic, the acid reflux is under control, menopause symptoms are gone and the arthritis still hurts but not like it used to and I have been able to use ibuprofen to treat that pain. I am able to exercise now and my family is now trying to keep up with me.
I am not done with my journey yet, still have about 30 pounds to go but I am confident that I will reach that goal and stay there. I hope that my story will touch someone who is in the same situation that I was in. I thank God every day for putting the University Wellness & Weight Loss Center pamphlet in the view of my friend. I feel that it has saved my life. I can’t thank Dr. Schiff and his staff enough for all of the help, love and encouragement they have given me for the last 7 months and I look forward to living a long and healthy life.
