My name is Sonia Frank. I’m 51 year old and, what anyone would consider living a pretty healthy life style, but still struggling with my weight. Hypothyroid was also part of my life, along with Fibromyalgia. Two years ago I made the best decision of my life, “I quit smoking “cold turkey.” I started feeling better the minute I stopped, even though I wasn’t a heavy smoker. Then came a little bit of the problem, my clothes were getting tighter, months went by, and then menopause became a friend along with my weight problems. Even though my size wasn’t that bad (8-10), my problem was buying pants. I was getting worse and worse, everything was going to my tummy and started looking like my front was my back, I became very depressed and frustrated specially considering that I worked out almost 2 hours a day and was eating a very healthy diet, even had my own trainer at the gym! I also tried many things that they claimed would help you lose weight. I would lose maybe a pound or two, but the sizes stayed the same.
The beginning of last year came to the point that even though, it scared me to death, I was going to get a tummy tuck! I ended up going to my family practitioner and gave it another try. He prescribed me Adipex,,, OMG lost 5 pounds but almost killed me,,, I felt like a 80 year old woman, all this within 3 weeks. I shop at Publix and have looked at that sign for Dr Rob’s clinic (AlternaCare) many times, and finally one day, I got the courage to go in. ”That day changed my life”. We started the program without some of my lab results and I gained more weight, my world came down and start thinking OMG what have I done? Another, take my money deal,,,,,,,,That’s when I met Dr. Rob and he explained to me that I needed to be patient, as well as wait for the lab results so he can do his job. Boy was he right!! He started the treatment and like magic, I started saying bye bye to my pounds, but most important to my inches, I felt like my life was beginning! I was no longer having hot flashes, my migraines were going away, and I was getting “My sexy back! I lost over 20 pounds and many inches and have gained back my confidence and many more positive things. My pouch is no longer with me. I went for my thyroid appointment last Friday and the Dr. was stunned when he saw me, especially when he looked at my lab results and my levels were better! Oh, did I mention that all this has been happening in less them 4 months? You read right, now my son has become a patient for different reasons, and my husband will be next. If you’re like me a couple of months ago, don’t wait, I promise that the Dr. will help change your life. I will always be grateful to him and the rest of the staff.
God bless them all
