Total Pounds We've Helped Our Patients Lose
I was often hearing advertisements on the radio about how awesome Riverside Weight Loss was, and how well their program worked. Though I know businesses pay for advertisements, when the radio personality (in this case Samantha Knight) is expressing how effective it was for her personally it brings more to consider. I have been to other places in an attempt to do something about how I look and how much I weigh. The program at Riverside Weight Loss works. The plan is easy to manage with little supervision, and I still get to eat foods I enjoy. The staff is friendly and supportive, and they regularly follow up with any concerns I had about how things would work. Now that I am in the maintenance phase, I am finding it easier to manage any cravings I previously had, and meal prep has become quite simple as well. I have been able to save hours in a week to do more things I want to do and have the energy to do it as well.
Lost 38lbs and 14 inches
I started my weight loss journey June 2022 (weight was 253 lbs.) after my husband took a picture of me and I really did not like what I saw in the picture he took. Wearing a woman’s pants size 20W- Shirt size 2X. I always felt tired at this weight so I really started watching what I was eating and started to change my eating habits. I started back logging my food at each meal, I also weighed everything I ate.
In January 2023 I took the next step and I started the weight loss program through Riverside and Spine and Medicine. My starting weight was 222lbs still wearing the same size clothes. I really like how it taught me how to eat more healthier than before. Still weighing and logging my food at each meal. I ended the program on May 19th 2023 weighing 164.6 lbs. I lost a total of 57.4 lbs on the program and felt so much better with the weight loss.
I continue to eat the same way I was eating on the program, and I still weigh my food and log everything I eat. I have added foods back in my diet that I was not allowed to eat while on the program like rice, potatoes, desserts, pretzels, but only in moderation. I also walk 2 times a day and my goal each day is to get 10,000 steps or higher.
After ending the program I continued to lose weight. As of Oct 14th 2023 my weight is 154.1 lbs. My current clothing size: pants misses size 8-10 and my shirt size misses Medium. My total weight loss right now is 99lbs.
I highly recommend this weight loss program to anyone wanting to lose weight. The staff in the weight loss program are wonderful and they will help you through your weight loss journey.
Lost 40lbs and feeling more confident than ever!
“I’ve struggled with weight issues and the accompanying shame my entire adult life, at one point wearing a size 18/20. I’ve always hidden in clothes that were too big, hoping no one could see what I really look like underneath.
Over the past few years, I managed to hold a fairly comfortable weight, but then menopause hit me hard. I was gaining more quickly than I could buy clothes. I was embarrassed. Miserable. Constantly tired. Could barely go up steps or walk up a slight incline. Ashamed. Suffering in silence because of the shame.
I kept hearing radio ads for Riverside Weight Loss, and listened to the wonderful testimonials. I wanted to call, but didn’t; it just couldn’t work for ME. One day, I just decided to do something for myself and make that call. After all, just going in to talk couldn’t hurt. I didn’t tell anyone I was going, though, just in case I failed.
I signed up, and had a glimmer of hope that I could do it. I went home, and decided to get real with the woman in the mirror. I reluctantly put on my sports bra from the bottom of my drawer, went in the bathroom, and shut the door, and faced my shame in the mirror. I tearfully took my “before” photos, not truly expecting to have wonderful “afters.” After finishing the photos, I tried to sneak past my husband, but he saw me. I stopped in my tracks and bawled. “Look at me. Look what I’ve allowed myself to look like.” He’s loved me through thick and thin, literally.
Fast forward 3 months…
That phone call was THE BEST decision I’ve ever made for my health and vitality!!! Forty pounds of actual FAT gone. Nine inches melted from my waist. Several inches of back fat gone; never before has that happened! I wish I had measured my legs before my weightloss, but my shorts stay down on their own now. NEVER before have I worn a size 4/6, but I do now. I even wore a two piece bathing suit to a water park, and I haven’t done that in 20 years!!! I have SUSTAINED energy. I can RUN up steps. I can walk up STEEP inclines.
You’re seeing my before and after photos only because I’m no longer ashamed! If I can do this, anyone can. Really, you CAN!”
