Owner, Medi-Weightloss® - Woodstock, GA
Hello! My name is Arthur, and I am the owner of the new Medi-Weightloss® location in Woodstock, at the intersection of Highway 92 and Trickum Road (in the Publix shopping center). For my first blog post, I thought I would tell you a little about myself, and how I came about joining Medi-Weightloss®.
I’ve called the Atlanta area my home for my entire life; after working in Corporate America for 25 years, I was burned out, and ready to find out what else was out there for me. In other words, I decided to find a career that was more meaningful. I didn’t know what that was until I heard about a franchise opportunity with Medi-Weightloss®. I did a lot of homework about the company, as well as other business opportunities I was also considering. In the end, my decision was a no-brainer - Medi-Weightloss® was exactly what I was looking for.
My decision to open my own business was based on not only the financial numbers and research I did on the Medi-Weightloss® Program, but I also faced weight issues growing up. You see, I have struggled with my weight since I was a little boy in elementary school. As I grew older, my relationship with food remained complicated. When I think back on how being overweight made me feel, I feel sad, as so many years were spent feeling self-conscious, uncomfortable, teased, and unhealthy.
With Medi-Weightloss®, I was given the best “do-over” ever. Through the program, I have learned more about my physical self than I’d ever learned before. There’s a reason why the Medi-Weightloss® slogan is The One That Works!® – because it truly DOES, for several reasons.
Let’s face it: There’s no getting around the fact that when people walk through our doors for the first time, they’re facing a subject that is difficult to discuss. Others come to us after a doctor has recommended them due to a medical condition, such as type 2 diabetes, heart problems, high cholesterol, hip or knee pain, and more.
Our physician-supervised program provides individualized weight loss plans for each patient that is tailored to each individuals needs. Additionally, through our cutting-edge technology, we can learn about each individual’s body composition – including how much a person’s bones weigh. How cool is that?
Medi-Weightloss® gives our patients the tools and education that helps them maintain their weight, even after they reach their weight loss. This brings me back around to what life is like since opening the Medi-Weightloss® location in Woodstock. To be honest, I could not have predicted how fulfilling my new career would be since opening just a few months ago. In fact, I have had more personal rewards, as a Medi-Weightloss® franchisee than I ever had in all the 25 years of my Corporate America career.
These days, I experience the joy of patients who realize their lives have been changed by their weight loss. Being there from the moment each patient walks into the door, until they leave after their final appointment allows me to have the best front-row seat imaginable. I watch men, women, and teenagers go from the same self-conscious, uncomfortable, and unhealthy person as I once was, and transform themselves into people who walk taller, smile more, and feel a wonderful sense of pride in themselves. The best part about celebrating their success week after week is knowing that each patient has changed his or her life in a safe, health-conscious way.
At the end of the day, I am here because I care about people, and want to help them feel better, physically and emotionally. Being able to share in the struggle and ultimate success of each person who joins the program, provides me with a feeling I can’t express.
