I made the best decision for my health in 2005 when I attended the orientation class at Atlanta Endocrine Associates . I started Healthy Solutions May 18, 2005. I lost 90 pounds by the next May and am still in the Maintenance program where I have continued to learn how to keep the weight from coming back on.
When I began my blood pressure was elevated and I weighed 242½ pounds, the most I had ever weighed in 54 years! At the beginning I went on blood pressure medicine but because of my weight loss and exercise regimen, my Primary Care doctor took me off the medicine completely. She said I was a walking testimony that eating right and exercise can make a big difference in your blood pressure.
Dr. Isaacs, the health educators and the staff at AEA have been so supportive, informative and encouraging in the process. I am changing my lifestyle in the way I eat and by incorporating physical activity in my daily routine. I like the disciplined approach in Healthy Solutions. Keeping a food journal and keeping up with calories earned in physical activity will be a part of my life from now on. The accountability of the program, the support of family, fellow classmates and staff make the journey worthwhile. It's exciting to know that I am doing the best thing I can do for my health and well being every day.
