Maria’s Weight Loss Journey

maria weight loss.jpg

I am first a mom. I was running a rat race of working, transporting kids, organizing at home, running a household, completing my workload; life. I’d forgotten about me. I looked in the full-length mirror one day and realized I needed a change. A big change… I wanted to resume a life that included ME… positivity for myself. I wanted to change the way I looked and I knew with that, I’d be empowered to know that I deserved that change. When I discovered Elevation Weight Loss, I was at the end of my personal confidence….it was all up from there!

I am now thinner and happier. I’m energized and evoked to stay the course. The course is easy to continue as the results are evident! Every day I am positive in my continued journey. With my weight loss, energy level, and continued confidence; I simply don’t waver. I have a goal in my life and the apparent accomplishment of it continues to hearten and fuel me on a daily basis.

Thank you, Elevation! I don’t like cliches and I’ve never believed in them until now; but I am new, changed, fresh, and WORTHY. With my personal goal achieved, I know I can do anything.

Go out there and grab your brass ring, you’ll be so proud of yourself. I am proud for the first time in a long time. The number on the scale is smaller, but my confidence is exponentially larger!

This program was truly the catalyst I needed to change physically; and, in turn; change internally. I am forever grateful.

-Maria

Physician’s authorization is required to purchase this item.

  • 1 ml injection of Vitamin C on buttocks once daily for increased immunity.
    vitamin-C
    DESCRIPTION: Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) is a water-soluble vitamin. It occurs as a white or slightly yellow crystal or powder with a light acidic taste. It is an antiscorbutic product.

 

  • On exposure to air and light it gradually darkens. In the dry state it is reasonably stable in air, but in solution it rapidly oxidizes. Ascorbic Acid is freely soluble in water sparingly soluble in alcohol insoluble in chloroform, ether, and benzene.
  • INDICATIONS AND USAGE: Ascorbic acid is recommended for the prevention and treatment of scurvy. Its parenteral administration is desirable for patients with an acute deficiency or for those whose absorption of orally ingested ascorbic acid is uncertain. Symptoms of mild deficiency may include faulty bone and tooth development, gingivitis, bleeding gums, and loosened teeth. Febril states, chronic illness, and infection (pneumonia, whooping cough, tuberculosis, diphtheria, sinusitis, rheumatic fever, etc.) increases the need for ascorbic acid. Hemovascular disorders, burns, delayed fracture and wound healing are indications for an increase in the daily intake. CONTRAINDICATIONS: There are no contraindications to the administration of ascorbic acid.
  • WARNINGS: Diabetics, patients prone to recurrent renal calculi, those undergoing stool occult blood tests and those on sodium restricted diets or anticoagulant therapy should not take excessive doses of ascorbic acid over an extended period of time.

Stacey L.’s Weight Loss Story

staceyl.jpg
Having had my oldest son 18 years ago, at age 20, I’ve struggled with my weight for most of my adult life. In March of this year, I’d had enough. I committed to attaining a healthy weight and lifestyle. For the first couple of months, I did okay, I lost almost 10 pounds. I felt like it could, and should have been more; losing the 50+ pounds I needed to lose would take forever at that rate! I needed a boost. That’s when I heard, from a friend, about Elevation.

Since joining Elevation in June, I’ve lost 25 pounds and 4+ inches from my waistline. The different products and programs they offer and the ability to combine them, has been just the recipe that I needed to get me to my goal! I am so thankful for the friendly and knowledgeable staff that has helped me on my journey. For the first time in a long time, I am so close to my goal that it actually feels attainable!

A Year of Caring…

Elevation cares is something we established last year.

The goal of our first year was to give two local, non-profit charitable causes.  We pledged that if our patients would leave a review on our social networks, or Google, we would donate $3 per feedback.  Our patients came through for us.  We were able to contribute to Weirton’s “Shop with a Cop” and the Brooke County Animal Shelter last year.

Our second year was not a disappointment.  This year we extended our program, and donations were made to the following four charities. We couldn’t be more proud.

WEIRTON COMMUNITY BREAD BASKET

The Community Bread Basket provides utility assistance, rent assistance, Food Pantry, Gabriel Room, Information Referral to the needy of Brooke and Hancock Counties in West Virginia. They are a wonderful charity that provides food to many families in the area.

Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue

Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue has been established to provide for the rescue, care, and placement of cats that have been abandoned, neglected, abused or which cannot be kept by their previous owner(s). Cats adopted through Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue are placed exclusively as indoor family pets. All cats are altered and vaccinated prior to adoption. All cats are currently kept in foster homes; therefore, Merlin’s Safe Haven Cat Rescue feels more knowledgeable about the cat and can help a prospective adopting family make the best decision adding a new family member for themselves as well as the cat.

Make a Wish/ PA and WV

The Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia chapter has grown steadily with the help of caring people who volunteer their time and support. Thirteen wishes were fulfilled in the first year. Now, 36-years later, more than 19,000 wishes have been completed. At any given time, there are between 300 and 450 wishes pending. They are the first chapter in the world to fulfill more than 700 wishes in one year.

Annual Memorial Coat Drive for Adam Morris

There is an annual coat drive in memory or Adam Morris, a young man who unexpectedly passed away in a car accident.  His family is keeping his memory alive by collecting coats, hats, and scarves for children in his honor.

We feel honored to be able to participate in these charities, and we urge you to click on the links and donate if you feel moved to do so.  They are wonderful charities and would benefit from anything you could give.

We will continue to give to our Elevation Cares charities and are excited to see what next year brings.

Nikki’s Weight Loss

skelly.jpg
It was the last week of April 2018 and it was my oldest daughter’s first holy communion and I went into my closet to find a dress to wear for her big day. There was nothing! Nothing fit! My weight gain was so gradual over the last four years and it hit me like a ton of bricks that day. I had a closet filled with beautiful clothes and nothing fit. I was wearing stretch pants and an oversized T-shirt. I had no energy to keep up with my two young daughters. I was stress eating all day and would wake up in the middle of the night and eat more. I knew that day that I didn’t want to go buy new bigger clothes and I wanted to run and play with my girls.

I called and made an appointment at Elevation Medical Weight Loss office. I weighed in on May 8, 2018, at 165 pounds and my waist was 32.5 inches. I started that day taking the supplements and I was no longer overeating and I had energy right from the beginning. I quickly started to feel like myself again. I was back to being the mommy that I wanted to be.

August 8, 2018, I weighed in at 147.6 pounds and my waist is 30 inches. I was happy again, my clothes in my closet fit and I was running and playing with my kids. Today I weigh 143 pounds and I am the thinnest I have ever been my whole life. I am not hungry, I have energy and it is all thanks to Elevation Medical Weight Loss. I am so thankful for the supplements and the easy weight loss plan. The staff is amazing and encouraging. I recommend Elevation Medical Weight loss to anyone who has weight to lose. It doesn’t matter if it is 100 pounds or 20 pounds this plan works and gives you your life back. Don’t wait any longer! Get your life back too!
