Eight months ago I couldn’t make it up the hill in my backyard without being completely out of breath. Fast forward to today, and I’m able to run 3 miles without feeling winded.
My name is Allison, and I’m a mother to 3 energetic young boys who keep me on my toes. Around Christmas time of 2017, I had a friend who said they were going to check out a weight loss clinic someone at work had talked about. It got my mind working, and I thought at this point I would give anything a shot. I was 26 years old, 182 pounds with a 35.5” waist. No matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to lose the extra weight I was holding onto after giving birth to my boys.
The first time I walked into Elevation Weight Loss Clinic, I knew I’d made the right choice. The staff and Doctors are so friendly and knowledgeable. The clinic is kid-friendly and inviting. They got me set up with the right regimen to help me succeed, and I haven’t looked back. I started my new routine and was consistent, which really helped. One of my biggest hurdles was my overeating. The medicine given to me helped me curb my appetite back to a healthy intake, and they also gave me a cheat sheet to point me in the right direction in the grocery store and around the kitchen.
Once I got started feeling better about myself, I had more energy. I was lighter on my feet when I wasn’t overeating and I got myself moving again. I started with what I was physically able to do and did not push myself too far in the beginning. I began walking, graduated to running, and explored the world of weights and machines at a local gym. I feel amazing now! I’m down to 149 pounds with a 31” waist.
Eight months ago I couldn’t make it up the hill in my backyard, now I’m enjoying my life with my children instead of sitting on the sidelines. Thank you Elevation for making it possible!
