Andrea M.’s Off To a Great Start!

andrea-m.jpg

Hi! I started my journey with Elevation Weight Loss in Weirton on March 9, 2018. I was tired, sad and could barely walk up my steps. When I walked into Elevation, everyone made me feel very welcome and comfortable. One of the first questions was did I have a goal weight I wanted to achieve? I figured I had a lot of weight to lose, so for now, I will set a small goal of 50 lbs since I had soooo much to lose! Now, here I am 2 months later and I’m down 43.5 lbs so far.

I’m feeling wonderful at this point and have no intention of stopping at 50 lbs! I have more energy than I had for a long time. Participating in aerobic swim classes and now even starting to attend a trampoline ounce class… I’m looking forward to the next few months to achieve my goal weight and to keep on going further– no stopping me now! Thanks Elevation for giving me that extra little help I needed to start to change my life!

-Andrea M.

I started my journey at the beginning of 2017 when I decided it was time for me to get myself back together after years of diet struggles, failed weight loss attempts. I had tried everything g under the sun at this point. I have struggled with weight issues my whole life and it seemed I would lose but never be able to maintain it, and wasn’t interested in being on a diet my whole life nor saw enough results to continue being motivated.

In January 2017 a friend of mine was telling me she was about to start a program to promote weight loss as she just had a baby and wanted to lose the weight. She notified me of how things were doing for her as she started the program and she was getting a lot of success. This intrigued me, so I called Elevation Medical Weight Loss and made an appointment.

I was nervous, skeptical, and hoping that this was my answer to my weight loss troubles. I got to my appointment and even brought my mom with me. The staff and doctors were very nice, informative and supportive of my situation and goals. So I committed myself to the program and this started day one.

I adjusted my food intake and paired with the medications they gave me, I could see the weight coming off in the first week. Although I would have loved to have spent time in the gym as part of the process, it just wasn’t feasible as I  work two full-time jobs and go to school full time. I continued on this program for six months and lost a substantial amount of weight but I was nervous about what was going to happen once I stopped the program. So I decided to try that and see what happens. I stopped the program for six months and I continued to lose weight about 30 pounds over that period and although it wasn’t as fast it was still good progress. I decided to go back on the program in February of 2018 to reach my goal weight and it’s is working, I am still losing the weight! I couldn’t be happier and so grateful for Elevation Medical Weight Loss for their continued support in my journey. I also used their vitamin B shots to aide in my process. I would recommend them to anybody who has a desire to finally lose the weight. Give them a call!! I know I’m happy I did. My starting weight was 285 and my current weight is 167. Check out my pics for proof!!

Increase Your Protein Intake to Lose More Weight

Frequently we will have clients come to us with questions regarding how to lose weight more quickly or to continue losing when they have hit a stand-still.  As previously discussed in our article, 7 Tips on How To Break the Weight Loss Plateau, one of the easier options is just to increase your protein consumption.

If your physician has medically cleared you to consume more protein, you may want to replace a 300-400 calories meal with a side of green vegetables and several ounces of very lean meat (turkey breast, chicken breast etc.) OR 2-3 scoops of a lean protein powder.

Look at how slim we are, and we just take pictures with the protein

We have personally taste-tested and reviewed in detail nutritional information on more than half a dozen protein powders.

Our personal top pick is OPTIMUM NUTRITION WHEY PROTEIN
Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder
Double Rich Chocolate or Vanilla flavor
5 Pound for $58 at GNC stores or Amazon.com *

DSC_7596
Remy + Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein

When you drink 3 scoops of protein mixed with cold water, you are consuming 360 calories and that has 72 grams protein & 9 grams carbs. This will serve as a meal replacement for your busy schedule and help you get more protein in your diet.

I am a single mother of 2 grown sons that I devoted my entire life too.  They came first, along with all of their activities and such, and I put myself last.  Over time I just got used to being heavy and thought that is how my life was going to be.   I tried every diet possible and had success at times,  but it never lasted.  I also battled a few health problems and I contributed that to some of my weight gain.  But I had to finally admit to myself, I like food, and lots of it, and I had to get control.

A few of my friends were on Elevation Weight Loss program and they were having amazing results.  So I reached out to them and they told me how wonderful the program was and how amazing doctors and staff were.   I made the decision, after Christmas I would go and find out about the program for myself.  So on January 9, 2018, I drug one of my best friends with me, and we went and took the plunge and signed up for the program.  It was honestly the best decision of my life.

I have lost 50.4 pounds so far and would like to lose about 20 more.  I have amazing energy and feel absolutely wonderful.  I kicked the habit of drinking Diet Coke (which is a large feat for me) and learned to drink lots of water now, and eat the right way. The best thing of every week when I weigh in is the text messages I send to my sons telling them what I lost that week and their replies saying how proud they are of me.  It’s all worth it!  The combination of the program, exercise and phenomenal support group, I know I can reach my goal.  Thank you Elevation Weight Loss for giving me my life back!

What to Expect During Your First Visit

We all know that carrying extra weight often comes with emotional baggage, which can include depression, low self-esteem, social isolation and more. This is among the many reasons many want to start a weight loss regimen. The first step is often the hardest, sometimes walking through the door looking for help is very scary.

We, at Elevation Medical Weight Loss, know that sometimes you just need a place to go where you can find non-judgemental, empathetic people who want to see you lose excess weight as much as you want to lose it.  Congratulations! You have found us and we are here to help you on your way to your goals!

To make getting started as convenient as possible, we offer both appointment and walk-in hours. If you are a walk-in patient, please expect to wait. Hopefully we can fit you in without delay, but we always prioritize our appointments first so please understand if we have to ask you to wait. *Shots and weigh-ins NEVER have to make an appointment.*

Our prescribers are usually not here every day.  We have several offices between which they have to travel.  The ONLY time you can get a refill on your medications is when a prescriber is present in the office.  There are NO exceptions.  Shots and weigh-ins are every day, and any time we are open.

Let us walk you through your first visit so you will know just what to expect.

Paperwork 🙁 Everyone’s favorite! Yes, but it’s not too much. Most of it is just consent forms. Two pages, front and back.

Photo ID – We need a photo ID on just your first visit. We will make a copy of it for your chart.

After all of the paperwork is done, you will be asked to go into the room and the first thing we do is weigh you (to get that part over with), after that is done we will ask you if you would like any injections. We offer B12, Fat Burner, Energy (with Anti-Inflammatory), B-Complex shots. These are weekly injections. You can choose to get them as you come or buy them by the package. We will take a waist measurement also. We also may take a blood pressure and heart rate. It’s very easy and only takes a minute.

When that is done you will be sent to the prescriber. Our prescriber will go over all of the plans with you and you and she will decide what is best for you according to what you want to lose and all the information that you give her. She will tell you exactly how to take your medications or to use your injections, whatever you choose. You will leave with paperwork and all of the necessary things you will need to start your weight loss program.

Once all of your decisions have been made you will come out to the reception area. Any program you choose, you will leave with. Payment will be required when you leave.

We accept CREDIT/DEBIT CARD, CASH, CARE CREDIT
*We do NOT accept Checks

Now you will be on your way to start your new adventure and we will be there for you every step of the way! We encourage you to weigh in once a week. We understand some of our patients live very far away and are unable to do that. We still would like to keep in touch with your progress and so we ask our patients who are not local to email us with their progress.

There you have it. Now you know what to expect when you come in for the first time. Now don’t be a stranger!
