Roger P. from Honolulu:
I have been overweight for most of my life. I have also struggled with trying to lose my excess weight, and have always found it to be too difficult to do. I am just like many others who have tried different kinds of “diets” and other weight loss ideas. The bottom line is nothing ever worked for me. Whatever the reason was, excuses or not, it seemed like I was destined to be “fat”, “chunky”, “thick” or whatever else I called myself.
One day while reading the daily newspaper, I came across a full page advertisement from Island Health Weight & Wellness Clinic. I looked at it for a while and decided I would hold on to that ad and think about how the program could change my life and my current state of health. I thought about it carefully every day for several weeks, and finally decided one afternoon to take that first big step and make a phone call to set up a free consultation.
I am so glad and forever satisfied that I made the decision to visit the Island Health Weight & Wellness Clinic. The program was and is very simple to understand, the choices in which individuals can lose weight are easy to follow. The professional, extremely encouraging and positive staff there helps to make the experience even more satisfying. Obviously it takes courage, a great desire and a strong will from each person to make this choice and to make it work, but once you get to the clinic, you will find that there are really good and sincere people there that want to help you!
I started the program weighing in at 223 pounds. I have been following the OPTIFAST plan for roughly seven months, and to date, I have lost a total of 40 pounds!! My blood pressure has dropped significantly, I have gone down 4 waist sizes in pants, my blood glucose level has dropped and I feel so much better about myself and my outlook for the future.
From the moment I walked in, until this time as I write this testimonial, I have never met such a great, professional, enthusiastic and sincere group of people like the ones at the IHWW. I want to especially thank Meighan, Lindy and Roanne for always being there for me, for always greeting me so cheerfully, and for always being so positive and encouraging. All of you have given me the motivation and inspiration to keep going and the guidance I have needed to attain my weight loss and lifelong goals of living and staying healthy! I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my humble and sincere heart for everything you have done for me! Without you, I would not have been able to get to this point, and be as successful as I have been! So again, to all of you, and to Island Health Weight & Wellness…Mahalo!
