Weight Loss Success Stories - Roy's Story

Roy lost 65 pounds

Roy lost 65 pounds on HMR® Medically Supervised Program

I started this program back in August 2009. I was sent here by my Heart Specialist Dr. Niazi from Emory Clinic. I was 244 lbs. and was probably on the verge of a heart attack.  My diabetes was out of control and I was taking massive doses of insulin every day and the numbers kept increasing. My A1C test was in the 8+ range and I have already lost sight in my left eye from my diabetes being out of control for too long. I also had a problem walking when I started. I could barely walk my 10 year old daughter to the bus stop half a block from my house.  When you are overweight it is really difficult. I started out slowly with 10-15 minutes a day. I built it up to 60 minutes of speed walking that I do almost every day.
I have lost 67 lbs and my goal is 80 lbs so I have a little more to go. I am taking significantly less insulin and my latest A1C was 6.0 (goal of under 7.0), my Triglyceride level was at 111 (goal of less than 150) it used to be in the 200+ range and my Cholesterol level is below 100 (a goal 0f 200). I have also been taken off some of my blood pressure pills and had my dosages significantly reduced.
The key thing is I feel great about myself and I have thrown out my old clothing size XX Large. I now get into medium slacks and shorts. I plan to go swimming this summer and I can find a bathing suit that fits. I can now go to the amusement park with my daughters and enjoy going on the rides. One more important subject is Phase 2. Unlike the commercialized programs, this program teaches you to eat right and keep the weight off. Some of the other quick weight loss programs do not discuss with you what needs to be done to keep the pounds off after the program is completed. Well I am feeling 1000% better and I have a new lease on life. I feel good about myself and I thank everyone at Atlanta Endocrine Associates for their support. You have put together a great program and provide the necessary support to get the job done. Don’t think about it, do it…it will help you have a healthier life!!
Thank you for your invaluable support,.
