43 pounds DOWN and still going!

December 7, 2015

We are so proud of this young lady!
In the last 10 years, I have struggled with my weight going up and down, having cravings, eating out of boredom, and just dealing with the issues of yo-yo dieting. Being diagnosed with endometriosis and needing hernia repair led me to having Laparoscopy surgery in April 2015. Even after a successful surgery, I continued to eat unhealthy. I was eating plenty of bad carbohydrates and gaining more weight, which in turn lead to me being even more unhappy with myself and my appearance. I finally decided after talking with Dr. Paschall about my weight gaining issues that something had to change. I finally made my mind up that the only person that could change my situation was myself and if I was going to do something different with my health I would have to become committed. I started to follow a low carbohydrate lifestyle on July 21st, 2015. My starting weight was 216 lbs.!
I also started walking and getting involved in local 5k events, which I believe was also a very good way to keep myself motivated and on track with my
new healthier lifestyle.
I have felt so much better since completely weaning myself from the addictive feelings that bad carbohydrates can make you feel, physically and mentally. As of now December 2015, I have lost a total of 43 lbs and I am only 8 lbs from my target weight. Yes, there are times that I still eat something that is not considered a good choice, but I continually tell myself that it is okay to mess up sometimes. However, I’m never going to quit.
I actually want to dress up now and I feel so good about myself. I just feel so revived and like a new person. I thank God every day that I received the opportunity to work with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and meet the awesome physicians here at the practice. Dr. Paschall and Dr. Fox have helped me more than they will ever know and in turn it has made me a new person. A person that has wanted to make a change and wanted to help herself.
Sincerely, HeatherIMG_4600
