I have my life back.
My family and friends stood by and watched for years as my weight increased, my health decreased and I was forced to take more medication to balance out my body’s inability to function properly. After too many medications to count, I had worked my way down to my ‘core nine’ for blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, iron and aspirin.
I thought everything would be fine and I was managing my health issues with medication. However, I knew deep down I was only fooling myself. Being overweight and in denial about my health, I had stayed clear of doctors to avoid being told I was overweight. I realize now I did so mostly because I was embarrassed. My daughter begged me to go to the doctor with her. I finally agreed and realized now, it was the first day of my new life. It was a sobering day however.Because of my extremely high blood pressure, I was given the ultimatum to leave by ambulance or the office would send me to a family practice physician next door. This is how I came to Dr. Brouillette’s office and Nuviva Medical Weight Loss.
I now see this as clear proof that everything happens for a reason!
I tried different diet plans before without success and was skeptical that anything would actually work for me. But I asked questions and Nuviva sounded like a plan that I really could follow…no food bars or meal replacement drinks, but real food. I met Jeremy Avner, the Nutrition Coach, for my initial consultation. He told me I could do it and Nuviva could help. For the first time in a long time, I believed I could. I made my decision that day and my transformation began.
By my fifth week, my blood pressure medicines started to be adjusted. In what seemed like no time at all, I was weaned off of all blood pressure medicine! Next, I didn’t need the blood sugar medications. It was incredible…my body was finally able to work the way it should. Last was my cholesterol medication. I was actually able to cut back and eventually eliminate those as well. Just 6 months after I began the Nuviva program,
I have lost 120 pounds and no longer take any medications!
I am so thankful to have my life back. You don’t realize how bad you felt until you feel so good. I have new found energy and I am enjoying all the little things in life that I lost along the 20 years I have been very overweight. I can now shop for clothes in any store I want. I just recently flew on a plane and didn’t have to ask for a seat belt extension and could actually use my lap tray. I don’t have to worry about requesting a table at a restaurant because the booth was too tight. I can go on any rides I want at the theme parks!
