Jean lost 80 pounds! †
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogrens Syndrome, and Cervical Radiculopathy. I am on the very severe end and every moment I have pain even if I do not display it. If you ask my husband or children, they know I have days when I cannot walk, sit down with ease, or turn my head in a certain direction. I have close friends that have had to tie my shoes for me and I deal with it every minute of my life. But weight loss was the path to some relief. If you see me on the treadmill or working out at the park, it is because I can. Losing the weight helped my condition tremendously. When the extra weight came off I was able to have more energy and less pressure on all of my joint. Medi-Weightloss® has helped me make healthy choices and with it being physician-supervised, I have the tools I need to manage my medical weight issues and other things that come along with my Rheumatoid Arthritis. Unfortunately, I will always arthritis, there is no cure, and people out there that have it know that there is not a simple "pain pill" or "massage" that makes it better, it has to be truly managed. Joining this program has helped me do just that. Sometimes my RA flares and I have to go on and off steroids, so if I fluctuate because of water on my legs, etc., when I have my Medi-Weightloss® appointments, they tell me what adjustments to make to stay on track. I want to take up boxing, and I hope to learn to properly dance the tango and the waltz with my husband (he doesn't really like to dance, but he will do it for me)! Those are my new goals.
