Weight Loss

“About six months ago I changed my lifestyle. Eating clean, exercising regularly, getting more sleep and seeing Dr. Heidi more frequently. I successfully lost 70+lbs! Then the holidays hit, life got busy and stressful; I hit a plateau. Right after the first of the year I got a note from Dr. Heidi, inviting me to a weight loss/detoxification challenge. I took the challenge and for the last six weeks, got back to eating clean, exercising and getting more sleep. I lost 30.4lbs in 6 weeks, 17 in the first three weeks doing the detoxification. I feel great and am more focused to continue on my journey.”- Misty

“With my wedding approaching in June of this year, both my fiancée and I told each other that after the holidays we needed to start to get in better shape so we looked good and were healthier when we started our life together. We were leery of calling it a New Year’s Resolution, because no one ever sticks to them. When I got the Viva Loss Vegas Weight Loss Challenge from Oak Springs, I knew it was the extra motivation we needed. When I started, I started the program I was 260lbs. I wanted to be between 200 and 210 by the time I walked the isle, so I knew I had work to do. Gone were the pizzas, the fast food, and the hardest thing to say good bye to, Ben and Jerry’s. I replaced all of those things with fish and chicken and vegetables, I know… boring! There first two weeks were tough, but as I stuck with it, it got easier. I also make sure I drank at least 100oz of water per day and we implemented a walking routine that I knew we could stick with. Put the water, the new diet and walking all together and after the first six weeks, my weight was 231.4lbs. I had lost 28.8lbs and 11.1% of my body. To put that into perspective, pick up a 30lb bag of dog food and try to carry that around with you all day. I would bet you can’t, but that is what I was doing for so long and I know it was killing my body slowly. I now have very minimal joint pain; I sleep better, breathe better and feel so much better than I did back in January. I now know that I can easily reach my goal of losing a full 50lbs by June 11th. I can’t wait!”- Chad

“I feel better than I have in years! I could go on for hours about the different ways that creating wellness has changed me and my life. In 15 weeks, I have lost 22 pounds and over four inches from my waist and hips. I have decreased my blood pressure and increased my strength. I lowered my cholesterol enough to get off of my medication. Creating wellness is the best thing I could do for myself!!! Thank you!!” – Mary

“When I started, my wellness quotient was 68, when I ended it was 111. I lost 21 pounds, my blood pressure went down, my lung capacity went way up, all of my strength numbers went up by hundreds of pounds. I also sleep much better and have been able to ride my bike over 1,500 miles this summer.” –  Brian

“As a registered nurse I see everyday the effects of improper nutrition, lack of exercise and poor lifestyle habit can have on a person. I looked in the mirror and saw I was headed there myself. Creating Wellness was like a breath of fresh air. My Wellness Quotient rose almost 30 points, I’ve lost 25lbs, smile all the time and have the energy and lifestyle I’ve always craved.” – Connie
