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!

Over 115 Pounds Down, Marijayne’s journey

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!!

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.

As a child, teenager and into a young adult, I’ve always struggled with weight. I would go
home from school as a 3rd grader, crying to my mom about the other girls who made fun of me or what another kid on the bus said. My mother would always tell me I’m beautiful and to not let others get me down. As I got older I always had to have my hair perfect, my makeup perfect and my nails done every other week, but my weight was never a concern to me.

Going to college, I ate like every other college student and continued to gain weight.
Always feeling self-conscious and never letting go of the little girl inside, I always felt bad just never let it show. I would try diets, work out and cleanses, which would seem to fade away within a few weeks. I never made any significant progress or felt better.

It wasn’t until I started with Elevation Weight Loss that my life started to change. I began
to eat more healthy, become more active and began feeling better about myself. I was able to not only meet my goal but surpass it. I am able to lead a more healthy lifestyle, not to feel self-conscious and continue to make new goals to meet. I am no longer worried about health issues that could arise due to being overweight.

What I thought was going to be the most difficult thing to do, become more motivating
with every day that passed and every pound that was dropped. I am able to maintain my weight loss by drinking a lot of water, maintaining low carbs and avoiding sugars. I now eat a lot of greens and venison, which is lean and lower in calories than beef. While I am still on my journey to become more healthy and leaner, I could not have started, achieved, nor keep going without Elevation Weight Loss and support.
