Alexian Brothers Weight Loss Solutions
Medical Weight Management Patient

Mary Beth T

My name is Mary Beth T. I started with Alexian Brothers Weight Loss Solutions in January 2013 and lost 65 pounds in the first 4 ½ months. I can seriously say I have never felt better. I have been fighting with the scale for most of my life. I can’t even remember how many different diets I have been on, many worked, but not for long. For the last few years my weight has continued to go up but I called myself a “healthy, fat person”. As my blood pressure and glucose crept up, I couldn’t avoid it anymore. My life had kind of been in turmoil for awhile, so when I saw the notice about the information session, I decided it was time to take control of something in my life.

The program is so much different than anything I’ve done. It was very easy for me from the beginning because I felt so much better than I had before. I had been experiencing numbness in my hands...this went away within the first month. My blood glucose and blood pressure have returned to normal and I am now off my blood pressure medicine. I feel safe under Dr. Auriemma’s care. He is very thorough and listens to what I have to say. The dietitians are great, as is Dr. Laura. I have really enjoyed the weekly classes. They keep you motivated and help you continue in the right direction. The staff is there for you whenever you need them.

I think the fact that you have to make a two-year commitment is perfect. You know that you will have the support you need to reach your goal and keep it. People ask if it is expensive, but I spend less on food now because I’m not picking up fast food or snacking all day. I have become more active since beginning the program. After about a month, I started walking and doing a video at home. About a month ago, I joined a gym and have a personal trainer (having never done anything like this before I needed some guidance).

My plan now is to be a very fit 60 year old. I have so much energy and zest for living. I still have 50 to 60 pounds to lose, but I know I can do it. This whole experience has changed me personally. I have so much more confidence in myself. I think the people I work with will tell you how much I have changed for the better. My coworkers have also been a tremendous support and encouragement to me daily, which has really helped.
