Hannah’s Weight Loss Story

hannahbowlan2

I graduated High school in 2016 at 135lbs. I then Started working full time as a CNA and then a few months later I started a part-time LPN program. My life was super busy, I’d go to work for 8 hours and right after work I’d go to school until 9:30pm. Eating healthy wasn’t necessarily easy for me so I ate out A LOT. Long story short I gained 30 lbs.

Summer of 2017, I went on 2 vacations which I refused to swim because I felt so disgusted in myself. All summer I wore big t-shirts and stretchy shorts because I was so disgusted with the fact I let myself go from a size 7 in jeans/shorts to now a size 12. To some, it’s not a big difference, but to me it was and I wanted and NEEDED to change it. Everybody used to tell me I looked great and would try and make me feel good about myself, but I never felt it. I was 5,2 and overweight and that’s all I could think. As I was driving through Weirton one day, I saw the Elevation Weight loss sign. I called them and scheduled an appointment immediately.

On February 2, 2018, this place has changed my life! I weighed 161.6 lbs and my waist was 36”. Valerie was so nice and explained how the program worked and since then, as of today 6-12-18 I’m now down to 137.8lbs and my waist is 31.5”!! My goal weight is 130lbs and I’m only 7lbs away!

This program has given me my confidence back and all around made me healthier! I gave up fast food and now meal prep, I go to the gym at least 2-3 times a week, and  I drink at least 7-8 bottles of water a day. I feel absolutely AMAZING inside and out!! I can go swimming again, I can wear crop tops, jean shorts, and all the cute summer clothes I have Always wished I could Wear when I couldn’t before! My advice to anybody on this program is to stick with it even when the scale doesn’t move! Everybody is different and some may take longer than others, but this program WORKS and you will be satisfied!

Tiesha’s Weight Loss Success

tiesha-weight-loss elevation.jpg

I’ve always been on the smaller side growing up. I could barely hit 100 lbs in high school! I got pregnant with my beautiful daughter in August 2016. Throughout my pregnancy, I was extremely swollen and retained a lot of water weight. I started out at 130 lbs and delivered at 180 lbs! I was devastated, although I had lost about 25 lbs after delivery from breastfeeding and just watching my diet. I had my daughter in April, and a friend referred me to Elevation Weight Loss Clinic with the promise of how it’ll basically change my life at the end of May 2017. I went in, talked with the doctor, was prescribed the medications, given a shopping list and some tips.

My first experience at Elevation was fantastic and I felt extremely comfortable and it has been that way ever since. Combining the Adipex, water pills and carb curve pills with a low-cal, clean eating diet and a Planet Fitness gym membership, has provided me with results I hoped and wished for. I have lost a little over 15 lbs and couldn’t be happier! Elevation Weight Loss Clinic has given me back my life after becoming a Mommy! I love my daughter more than life itself, but she did some major “damage” to her Mama’s body! I still have a ways to go, but anytime I hear a friend express they have tried everything to lose weight and just can’t get where they want to be, I ALWAYS excitedly tell them about Elevation and say “It’ll change your life!” Thank you for giving me MY life and confidence back!

Joyce R’s Journey to Weight Loss

When a woman turns a certain age her whole-body changes. Well, when I turned 50 I looked at pictures of myself that were taken at my 50th party and I thought to myself “What happened to me”? I was at least 40 lbs overweight. I was miserable. So, I mentally got my mind set to start watching what I ate and to start taking better care of myself.  I did do just that, and I lost 40 lbs!

It was very slow and hard to do! I slowly became more active, started to exercise, do 5K walks, weight training, the works. I felt awesome. I kept that weight off for over 4 years. Then in one day, my life changed drastically. The heartache, loss, and circumstances that I was dealing with left me extremely stressed and depressed. It led me to eat constantly. Eating seemed to be the only thing that made me happy and it didn’t take any thinking to do it. 

I ate my way to gaining all 40 lbs back and more all in one year. I stopped exercising and walking. I did nothing but work, eat and lay around. I was miserable. I tried several times and several ways to diet and get the weight back off. Nothing would work! The weight gain made me even more depressed. Finally, a friend told me about Elevation Weight Loss. I wasn’t thrilled about trying it but after realizing that I could not mentally lose the weight myself I called and made an appointment. I met with the doctor, received my pills, shots, and information and left thinking this will never work! One week later when I went to weigh in I had lost 6.4 lbs. I was so amazed and so happy! It worked! The pills curbed my appetite enough to make me not eat as much or to crave things. I drank water again because I was thirsty, and it tasted good. I continued the next week watching my calorie intake, which wasn’t really that hard because I just wasn’t hungry. The weight continued to come off every week.

In a little under three months, I had lost 22 lbs. and several inches. My attitude changed, and depression started to leave. I felt so much better, happier and active again. I started to get back to being myself. I can’t even explain how Elevation has helped me in so many ways. If your overweight and it’s making you miserable, depressed, unhealthy and you just can’t lose the weight then try Elevation. It’s easy and wonderful. The ladies are all so nice and so encouraging. I still have a few pounds to lose but I know I can do it!

Pam D.’s Weight Loss Story

pamdougherty

When I started at Elevation Medical Weight loss, my starting weight was 139.6 pounds. This may not seem like a lot to some, but to me it was. I was always active when I was younger and never had an issue with weight. After having 2 children and getting a little older, my energy levels had gone down and the pounds started going up. I hated trying clothes on and having to get dressed and go out somewhere because I just felt so uncomfortable in everything I owned.

In the first month, I lost 11.8 pounds! The second month, I lost another 5.8 pounds. That’s almost 18 pounds in just 2 months! I was so glad to find a program that actually worked. The weight was coming off and my energy levels were back up. I no longer had the “sluggish” feeling all day like I had before. I felt more confident when I was getting dressed to go out and loved going to try clothes on again. I was able to enjoy being outside and playing with my kids again without feeling completely exhausted.

Some advice for those going through this or those hesitant to try it, it is worth it! The results are amazing and you will feel so much better. Just stick with the meal plans and program as directed and you will not be disappointed. Overall, I am feeling so much better on a daily basis and enjoy being able to do the things I was not able to do before.

Farin W.’s story

My journey started in August 2017. I had been on a low carb/high protein diet for 2 years and had lost 30 lbs already, but just couldn’t seem to break through the plateau I had hit at 185 pounds. I heard about Elevation from a friend of mine, so I made an appointment and here I am 10 months later down  2 lbs below my original goal weight of 165 lbs. That’s 22lbs… I haven’t been this size, physically fit or as healthy since HS. Being on this program has given me the control and energy I needed to break through my plateau and make great strides to getting to my goals! Losing weight has always been a struggle for me, and I have tried every diet fad out there and never had the results I’ve seen with Elevation. I highly recommend giving it a try! The products are easy to use and they work. Period. The staff and Doctors are always friendly, helpful and encouraging! I have set a new weight goal of 155lbs. Don’t hesitate to take the first step to the new you! I promise Elevation gives you the tools and support you need to get there!

Lee C. looks great!

I started off my weight loss journey in December 2017! I have always been a yo-yo dieter my whole life no matter what you do once you stop doing it you will gain the weight back so why not make it easier on yourself with a little boost from elevation weight loss! The program is so easy to follow and you can set your own pace!

In just 7 months time I have lost over 54.6 lbs and have also kept them off!!  Losing lbs is nice but losing the inches are the best part I started off with a 45-inch waist and got measured today in the office and I am down to a 37-inch waist! That is 8 inches off…. I have gone down in pants sizes from a size 18 to a size 11/12, most tops I can fit into a size medium and the most exciting this is I can cross my legs again yippee! I really never thought I would get back into sizes I was in as a teen but those days are fast approaching!

Every single day I get compliments and encouragement to keep going and I can say that it is possible with a little help! Why wait to make yourself feel better!! I did a little motivational exercise and I went to the store and picked up a 25 lb bag of sugar and walked around with it for a few minutes I was winded and my arms hurt! I can’t believe I was actually carrying 2 bags of that on my body! How did I ever get around day to day? I don’t want to go back to those added extra bags I will keep it off with the help of evolution!

Kurt’s Weight Loss Story

I started this process a little over 5 months ago. My journey began at 336 lbs which is by far the biggest I have been. I’ve always been a bigger guy and was ok with that, but it had gotten out of control. I needed a jump start to get me interested in losing the weight without getting discouraged.

The staff at Elevation in Weirton was more than helpful and full of positive reinforcement. In a short time, I noticed an increase in energy and motivation. I followed the meal plan the best I could and was seeing results. It was just the start I needed to keep me focused on the journey.
I’ve since lost 90 lbs. It’s by far one of the best decisions I’ve made!! My original goal was 50 lbs and to be honest I never thought that was possible. By the time I hit my goal I was all in and didn’t want to stop there.

I’m continuing to follow the meal plan and going to the Weirton office. I’m excited to see where this journey will take me.

Sheena M.’s Weight Loss Story

After having my second child I was so upset with the way I looked. I never had to try to lose weight before… I always had stayed around the same size my whole life.

 

For months after he was born, I tried everything. I worked out 5-7 days a week. I ran every day. Tried the 21-day challenge, counted calories, took Hydroxycut, tried to do AdvoCare again (which I loved when I had done the 30-day challenge about 2 years before) and only lost about 10lbs in 6 months. My body was tighter overall and I’m sure I built muscle but my goal weight was still 50lbs away and I was getting married in a year. Something had to give!

 

I started a new job and was recommended by a friend as well as other colleagues to go to Elevation Weight Loss in Green Tree. I made an appointment and began my journey with Dr. Cooper and her husband. There have been bumps along the way… I unexpectedly lost my mom and our wedding venue closed which resulted in us moving our wedding date up by 5 months!

 

I went to Dr. Cooper about the wedding to come up with a plan to get to my goal within 4 months. At this point, I had about 30 lbs to go. With her support and direction, I accomplished my goal by my wedding date! This guidance from the Elevation team along with the regimented diet and medication to help curb my appetite is the only reason I’m back to feeling like myself again!

 

I will be forever grateful and highly recommend anyone to give this a chance before you give up!

 

Thanks!

P.J.’s Weight Loss Story

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,

Kristina V. Weight Loss Story!

“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 🙂
