Starting Weight: 199 lbs.
Current Weight: 159 lbs.

Wendy was pre-diabetic, had high cholesterol and struggled with depression. After trying numerous diet fads that failed, she decided to try medical weight loss. She says: “I really considered this my last hope – and it’s working!”

What changes have you seen since losing weight with Iowa Weight Loss Specialists (changes in medical conditions, etc.)?
Since starting the program with IWLS I am no longer considered pre-diabetic. My cholesterol and triglycerides are in the excellent range. My depression has decreased, my sleep pattern has improved greatly and I have a lot more energy!

What made you decide to try medical weight loss at IWLS? I tried almost everything you can think of to lose weight. All of the quick fixes, pre-packaged meal plans, fads… you name it! I really considered this my last hope – and it’s working!

Besides the external changes you have experienced, how has your weight loss altered your outlook on life and your relationships? One of the biggest changes is that while before the weight loss I hated having my picture taken. Now I don’t mind it at all! I am much more confident about myself and although I still have moments of insecurity, those moments are becoming further and further apart.

What would you say about the Iowa Weight Loss Specialists team? The IWLS team is truly there to help you change your eating habits. I can tell they sincerely care about me, my feelings, needs and wants. They seem to know just where I need the help. I know they want to see me be successful in this journey.

What would you tell someone who was considering medical weight loss? Don’t waste time on all of the fad diets. Lose weight the right way – make it a life change, not a diet! Seek a medical weight loss team who can help you every step of the way mentally and physically. Choose IWLS, they want to help you succeed!
