I began the program the Sunday after Thanksgiving and in eight weeks I lost 35 pounds and 11% body fat. I really liked Dr. DeGroot’s emphasis on getting me to a healthy body fat percentage rather than specific weight.

I visited the 30/10 Weight Loss for Life Clinic in Renton the week before Thanksgiving. I thought I needed to lose about twenty pounds, but after consulting with Dr. DeGroot, it turned out that I really needed to lose about thirty-five pounds. My body fat percentage was at 28%. My doctor had been raising the amount of blood pressure medication that I needed to maintain a normal reading about every three months. I had gone from 10 mg daily to 100 mg. I had high cholesterol and had trouble sleeping. The thing is, I didn’t look obese, they said I was “skinny fat”. In other words, I carried the extra weight all over, rather than in one part of my body. It was clear however, that the weight was beginning to impact my life in a negative way. I made the decision to take control of my health and do something that I hoped would positively impact my life.

Most important to me is the drastic change in my health. After five weeks on the program, my doctor took me off all blood pressure and cholesterol medications. I am sleeping soundly every night and I wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead. The drastic change in my physical appearance has prompted numerous people to ask what I am doing. A number of those who have asked are now on the program themselves. I must be a pretty good walking billboard for the 30/10 Weight Loss program.

 

I have just begun the Maintenance Phase of the program and I am encouraged at the level of support they provide after you have reached your goal. I joined this program, not to just lose the weight, but to keep it off for good. Thanks to the support and the accountability, I am confident that I will be able to meet this goal as well.

 

Thank you 30/10 Weight Loss for Life. Dr. Degroot and her staff have helped me to change my life in a positive way. They have given me back control of my life and have taught me how to lead a healthy lifestyle. Needless to say, I am a big believer in this program. If you need help in losing weight and learning to eat in a healthy way while receiving just the right amount of support, give them a call. Your health will thank you.
