Weight Loss Success and a Healthier Lifestyle
2011 was a journey for me. A journey from death to life. I had five heart surgeries in 2011; three of which were open heart, resulting from aneurysms. I have always led an active lifestyle, including leading up to the annual physical where they discovered my problem. I had been playing racquetball three days a week without symptoms. I was fortunate; my caregivers told me that the first symptom I had could have resulted in instant death. Thank God for employment physicals!
Leading up to my multiple visits to the CC Country Club (Cleveland Clinic) I had lost 60lbs. During the recovery period from my heart surgeries I had gained back 64lbs in 3 ½ months due to the medications I was on. I needed to do something quickly and safely to get the weight off. I noticed that a number of my friends had lost significant amounts of weight while I was away. I asked them their secret and all of them shared that they were successful with programs that included education, support, exercise, supplements and medicines and, of course, diet.
Right away I went to my cardiologist and asked him what he knew about that sort of weight loss and healthy living program. He informed me of a physician that he met during his residency that was running a spa called UniqueU Medical Weight Loss & Wellness. He said that he had referred a number of his patients and that the feedback was great. I made the call.
In April of 2012, I went for my free consultation. I was not certain that I would qualify for the program because of my recent medical history. After going through all the tests, in late April, I was cleared for the program.
During the first phase ( for me 3 weeks) I lost 29lbs. I was hooked and highly motivated. As of this writing, November 3, 2012, I have lost 89 lbs. and I am 31 lbs. away from my goal.
I travel a lot in my job; yet I find the program easy to follow. I have become more disciplined with my workout routine and I am learning nutritional behaviors that will sustain me for life.
My wife has also joined the program and is enjoying success of her own. I am very proud of her.
Anyone that has suffered through multiple diets, as I have; only to gain the weight back, will find this program to be both manageable and sustainable. I would recommend UniqueU to anyone who is looking to get healthy for life. They certainly gave me my life back.
Note: As with any weight loss program results vary from individual to individual and these may not be typical. Our weight loss program includes a healthy diet and exercise to produce the best results.
