Weight Loss Success Stories - Barry's Story
Barry lost 78 pounds on the HMR® Medically Supervised Program
Since beginning the HMR program 24 weeks ago I have lost 75 pounds. During this time my need for insulin (I'm have type 2 diabetes) has decreased from approximately 60 plus units daily to 24 units a day. My most recent HbA1c was 5.3. I'm told this equates to an average blood sugar of approximately 114 over the past 3 months. My overall goals are to lose 80 pounds and to get off insulin. As I near these goals I believe that they are both attainable thanks to the folks at Atlanta Endocrine Associates and HMR.
With the positive well-informed support I receive from my health educator, Jennifer Watson, and with the careful medical supervision of Dr. Scott Isaacs, I know that when I begin the maintenance phase of the program I will continue to be successful. Other benefits of the program include the support of others in my group, an increased energy level, decrease in knee joint pain due to arthritis and better self-esteem.
P.S. I tried to lose weight many times before but continually ran into blood sugar lows (hypoglycemia). After the first week of the program the "lows" were a thing of the past and I was able to really begin to lose weight
P.P.S. Statistical Improvement: 1) Neck size reduced from 19 to 16, 2) chest size went from 52 to 44, 3) waist size went from 48 to 37.
