Summerville Patient Loses 47 Pounds!

I started with Physician’s Plan Weight Loss and Wellness in November of 2018 to start a better healthy lifestyle.

Some of my challenges were my eating habits and not having exercise plans. I overcame them with having to be accountable by weighing in every week and really wanting to change.

The three things that Physician’s Plan offered that helped me the most in my weight loss journey were the weekly weigh-ins, Lipo B12 injections, and the monthly visits with the doctor.

The best part of my weight loss journey is getting back to my “old self”. I feel great and it has motivated me to keep pushing.

The friendly atmosphere is great at the Summerville Physician’s Plan. It really helps with coming in weekly. I appreciate it.

Local Registered Nurse Loses Over 100 Pounds!

I started Physician’s Plan because at 318 pounds and 50 years old, my health was starting to fail. My bones and joints ached all the time, particularly after a 12-hour nursing shift. I had to take the elevator because my knees couldn’t take the stairs carrying all that extra weight and I would become winded and sweaty from very little exertion. I was always bloated because my diet consisted of a lot of salty, fatty foods and I was eating at least three times the calories I should have been. I didn’t like the way that I looked in or out of clothes and it made me feel self-conscious.

Summerville Dad Loses 80 Pounds

I started this weight loss journey to be overall healthier. I wanted to have the ability to be more active in my daughter’s life and also at work. I want to be an inspiration for my daughter and show her she needs to be healthy while she’s growing.

The biggest challenge I faced during my weight loss journey was kicking the desire for fast food, junk food, soda, and especially sweet tea. The convenience of fast food was probably the hardest for me, but I overcame the urge to eat those things by always having some type of healthy snack at my side. Giving up sweet tea and soda was hard for the first week or so…I didn’t realize caffeine had such a hold on me! I overcame those sugar cravings by drinking a gallon of water a day to make sure I wasn’t thirsty.

Busy Mom, Vegan and 40+ Journey of Weight Loss

The day I turned 40, I was the heaviest I had been in my life (other than pregnancy, and we all know that number doesn’t count).  The scales read an alarming 155 pounds. I knew it was time to do something, but I didn’t know where to start. Being a vegan made things a little harder. Squeezing uncomfortably into my size 8 pants (knowing it was time to move up to the 10’s) meant it was time to get back down to a healthy weight.

Young Professional Loses 15 lbs.

Life seems to come in phases, some of which can be more difficult to navigate than others. Life after school, in between 25 and 30, can feel like limbo. “What am I going to do next?” “What life goal do I need to check off the list?” “Are my ducks in a row?” “SHOULD my ducks be in a row?” As a twenty-something, finding the answers to these questions can be exciting, but it can also be stressful. For me, stress = weight gain. While balancing work, friends, family, school, etc., personal health and fitness can be a struggle to keep up with. Enter the oh-so-relatable me:

Mother’s Weight Loss Journey Inspires Son to Lose Weight

George Lemacks knew he needed to lose weight, he was walking with a cane and got winded walking a single flight of stairs. It wasn’t until he saw his mom successfully shed some weight that he decided to take action. He explains, “My Mom had been doing Physician’s Plan for a little while and was having success.”

George reached out to the Physician’s Plan team in Charleston for help, the same team that supported his mother’s weight loss journey. Says George, “Physician’s Plan has been great. The staff is friendly and encouraging and makes the whole process fun. The nutrition counseling is a big help. Once you learn how to eat it makes making healthy choices so much easier.” The team formulated a weight loss plan customized to George’s weight loss goals and medical profile. The plan helps to speed up metabolism, curb hunger, improve health and increase energy. Says George, “Physician’s Plan is the easiest way to lose weight that I have ever tried. It has been so easy for me to stick to the program.”

As an employee of Physician’s Plan Weight Loss & Wellness for 3.5 years, I provide patients with nutritional counseling and other tools for weight loss success.

After talking with the other weight loss coaches at Physician’s Plan, I became motivated and made a commitment to improve my health and normalize my eating habits. I also told myself I needed to lose some weight to see if that would help with my back pain.
