When I reached my 7th decade I realized my body couldn’t afford to continue to carry extra weight. It was affecting my health. I had been on every diet out there, and though I could lose weight on all of them, I’d never been able to maintain the loss. This time had to be different.
I didn’t have the ‘heart’ for a slow weight loss program, so I did some online checking and found Advanced Medical Weight Loss, with Dr. Derek Muse. His program consisted of a very low calorie diet with medical monitoring, special diet foods, and medication if needed. I opted to go on the program without medication. It took me from March, 2018, until February 2019 to lose the weight, but I managed to lose 100 pounds. I still have access to purchase the diet products that helped my meal planning, and I’m succeeding in maintaining my loss! I feel 100% more energy and my back pain is gone, though the underlying back condition remains. I’m thankful to know that if at any time I have trouble maintaining my weight, I can go back to Dr. Muse and receive medication to help me. I don’t anticipate needing this extra help. I have a new life!
