When I first came to Dr. Liu I wasn’t sure if I would be able to stick with the program so I just wanted to obtain some information. Once I started hearing the results other patients had and their journeys I knew I had to make a commitment right then and there. If I were to leave the office that day without making the commitment to change my life I would never come back. When I started I was 285 pounds. Growing up I was a lifelong athlete and then I had my two daughters. Working a full-time job that was very time-consuming and raising two young daughters I found myself drained and tired most of the time. At the age of 33, I didn’t have the energy to play with my own daughters let alone workout. I was a size 16-18 in clothes. I knew I needed to make a change. In the beginning, the program was difficult because I would see my family and loved ones eating their food while I drank my shakes. After the first week, it started to get easier. Once I saw the pound start to shed away it was easier and easier to follow the program. I started to notice I had more energy to play with my daughters and work out. I made working out a family activity that we could do as a family. This program isn’t just a fad it is a life-altering change. It is a commitment that you make to yourself, to put yourself first. Now I don’t eat as much as I once was. I’m not hungry like I used to be and I don’t crave high-fat foods. I can’t even eat fast food anymore nor do I want it. This program has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I now weigh 205 and wear a size 12-14. I’m still engaged in the program and plan to lose another 20 pounds. I recommend it to everyone I talk to. When most people gained weight during Covid I have come out of the pandemic a completely different person!!
