I have struggled with my weight since I was in high school. I am a dancer and have never had the typical “dancer’s body”. I had tried every diet pill, weight loss program, and nutrition regime. At my highest weight when my sister talked me into coming to Advanced Medical Weight loss, my weight was almost 250lb. I am 5’6 and was severely obese. I wore a size 20 +. I had a lot of digestion and gut issues. My son who is an athlete went in the opposite direction and lost 30lbs in one summer at the age of 14. I think he was embarrassed of me. I knew I had to show him a healthier lifestyle. Now almost a year and a half later, I have lost close to 100lbs. My last weigh-in, I was 154lbs. I wear a size 6 and buy tops in size small. It feels so great. I am almost 50 and it was hard work but I am so glad I did it. I eat on my emotions and I am slowly learning how to not play mind games with food and have enough energy to now exercise daily. The food is good. I actually have never been able to do protein shakes and bars and I LOVE these ones.
