Elevation Medical Weight Loss is proud to announce the result of the first installment of our Elevation Cares program.

The goal of our first program was to give to 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.

Our two charities were:

SHOP WITH A COP: A Hancock County-based program which provides children of low-income families an opportunity to receive gifts this Christmas by shopping at local stores with deputies. This marks the 30th year the department is organizing the program. Deputy Patrick Hoder is the administrator of this program and told us that so far 63 children have signed up with more expected. Deputy Hoder was happy to accept a check from Elevation Medical Weight Loss for $150.00.

Our second charity was:

BROOKE COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER:  Brooke County Animal Shelter is a wonderful facility that houses many dogs and cats that need loving homes.  They are dedicated workers who provide love and care to these animals until they find a forever home.  The shelter was happy to accept our check for $150.00 from our employee, Courtney L.

We were very proud to distribute the checks on behalf of the work of our patients. With the success of this campaign, we hope to find more ways to contribute even more to charitable organizations and will keep you updated on the progress.

In January I remove turning that dreaded 40.. yes I was over the hill. I thought to myself that I could either get busy living or get busy dying. I made the choice in early February 2018 to make a life-altering decision that would completely redefine the person that I am today. I was determined to not only lose weight but to live a healthier lifestyle. I had to change the type of choices I made each day. I knew I couldn’t do this alone. I needed professional help! I needed help from someone that understood where I have been and where I wanted to be. That’s when I decided to visit Elevation Medical Weight Loss in Weirton, WV.

Their weight loss professionals helped put me on the right path to a new healthier life. They provided me with the daily meds and a diet plan that would be most suitable for my current lifestyle. I was amazed at how quickly the plan worked for me. I lost 12 lbs after the first 7 days. As I moved into the 2 weeks I noticed my energy and stamina increasing during my time at the gym. I noticed I was able to continue the treadmill for that extra 15 minutes. I started eating healthier and drinking more water since I wasn’t craving sugar. I started moving away from carbs and leaning more towards vegetables and foods high in protein. When I started lifting weights and watched my body transform into a younger me. I have three daughters that are all under the age of 12. I was now able to join them in activities and even wrestling with them in the backyard without getting winded after 5 minutes. I had lost a total of 41 lbs in 3 months and regained the endurance and muscle. In addition to my weight loss, I dropped 9 inches off my waist.

I’m in better shape now than I was in my late 20’s.  I recommend Elevation Medical Weight Loss to anyone who wants to feel good again, anyone who refuses to give up, and anyone who wants to make that life change for the better. It’s not easy my friends!! You must be willing to alter your lifestyle. You need that drive to exercise when you are tired after work, order the broccoli instead of fries, and stop making excuses on why you can’t do it!! Yes… I promise you that you can do this. If I could do it anyone can. My kids are happier now! I’m happier now! Life has a funny way of keeping score. I’m glad I chose the winning team. Thank you Elevations Medical Weight Loss for guiding me to a new life I’ve always dreamed of having.

Your forever client and friend,

P.J. K.

“How’d you do it?” is the main question people ask how I lost weight. When I first started the program at the beginning of May– I weighed 181 lbs. I have lost 18 pounds since my last weigh-in, and I’m continuing to lose more. It hasn’t even been a month yet!

I had quite a few things that have helped in my weight loss. One big tip is to drink lots and lots of water! Drinking water before meals helps me feel full so I don’t overindulge.  I was a huge soda and sweet tea drinker, cutting them out has helped a ton. Now I drink unsweetened tea and water with lemon. I jog every day at least 3 miles and try walking as much as I can. The final tip is sticking to the Elevation Weight Loss program! Without this program, I would not be where I am today! I feel like a new woman, comfortable with myself. Thanks, Elevation Weight Loss 🙂

In continuing with our “Elevation Cares” campaign, we have noticed that many of you are losing so much weight that you probably have clothes that are now too big for you.  We have decided to place a rack in our “weighing room” for those of you who want to get rid of all of your “too big” clothes.

We would like nice, clean, and untorn (unless it’s the style) clothes that are too big for you, so that we may make it available for someone who may be on their way to their goals and in need of “in between clothes”. If you drop off something, take a look at what we have, there may be something that you want… if so, just take it.

clothes-donate.jpg

We encourage people to not hold on to their bigger clothes.  If you donate them and get them out of your closet,  you are more likely to keep the weight off.

So come in and browse our gently used clothes and if you need to try them on, you can! This is our way of saying “Congratulations” on your weight loss.   You do not need to be a patient to participate, so if you bring someone, they can look too!

I started the Elevation Medical Weight Loss program a little under three (3) months ago. I was kind of skeptical and hesitant in the beginning because every time I tried to lose weight before; I always failed.  So, I thought to myself; let me just try this out because my niece told me about this program. She said she lost 20 pounds since she started the program. In the first month alone, I lost approximately 4 pounds.  I was so excited. Loosing that 4 pounds gave me more of an incentive to keep going back. Now, I have lost about 24 pounds total in three months. I believe this is a great way to lose the weight and keep it off.

I just followed the program they gave me.  I eat 1600 calories a day, and I am not hungry.  I feel full. If I do get hungry; I drink a bottle of water, and I am good.  I found drinking water throughout the day and watching my calorie intake helps me a lot.  You really don’t have to exercise to lose the weight. In the beginning, I didn’t exercise at all and I lost 4 pounds.  I do walk quite a bit though. I walk my dog every morning for about 45 minutes or so.

About a month and a half after starting this weight loss program, my job started a “100-day global challenge”.  This challenge is to help you get healthier. There are seven of us on a team. We all got a max buzz watch that counts all our steps, our calories, and our heart rate.  Our team is trying to stay on top. This has also helped me with my weight loss journey. I go into work early, park my car, and walk for about an hour a day. I try to have at least 7,000 steps before I go inside to work.  When I take my cigarette breaks, which I get two a day, I walk while I smoke which gives me more steps.

I feel so much better since I have lost this weight.  I am more alert. I don’t get tired throughout the day anymore.  I can do so much more than I thought I could. I am more active now than I have been in a long time.  I went to the doctors and they sent me for blood work because my cholesterol was high before I started at Elevation.  Since I have lost the weight, my cholesterol has gone down drastically.

I would recommend this weight loss program to anyone.  Don’t give up on yourself, give yourself a chance, and keep going back!  It really does work!

Fall is here! As we welcome to shorter days, crisp air and colorful leaves, we should think of the new season as a chance for a fresh start to your healthy habits.  As we pack up our swimsuits and flip flops and bring out those sweaters and toboggans, let’s not use the change in wardrobe as an excuse to forget our fitness goals. Some of us tend to gain weight in the summer even though we seem to be more active thanks in large part to, barbecues, graduation parties, weddings, and other gatherings. Fall, however, is the perfect time to undo the damage, since while Summers tend to stay busy Fall affords many of us more opportunity to slow down and refocus on our health and our families.

Below are a few Fall tips for getting the most out of the season:

  • Pumpkins aren’t just for decorating–they are rich in phytosterols, and loaded with vitamins A and C. Some studies show that adding pumpkin into an already balanced diet can lower cholesterol.
  • Don’t forget to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  Your skin will thank you and so will your immune system especially in the cool windy weather.  Probiotics have been known to boost our immune system which seems to always be worse in the fall.  You know another source of immunity booster? Pumpkin!
  • Turn the computers off and put your sneakers on and go outside.  Nothing is better than walking with the crisp air and fall foliage.  Spending time outdoors have been known to improve your concentration and your mood, especially as the daylight hours diminish.
    fall-is-here2
  • If you must perform yard work, you can also use that as an alternative to a workout in a pinch.  For a 150 pound person, 30 minutes of raking leaves, or planting/weeding, or playing with the little ones can each easily burn up to 150 calories. (Just wait until you see how many calories you can burn shoveling snow in a few months)
    fall-ishere.jpg
  • Autumn veggies are filled with heart-healthy vitamins.  Try roasting fall veggies with a little oil and salt & pepper, the extra fiber will also help avoid the urge to overindulge in all of the pumpkin spice treats we get surrounded by this time of year.

Fall doesn’t have to be the season that we dread just because it gets colder and grayer.  With these tips, we can make fall a fun, healthy time of year.
