Success Story - Carolyn
I had been overweight all of my life and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetic in 2007 at the age of 47. When I started at MRC, My Hemoglobin AIC was 7.6 (Anything over 6.5 is considered diabetic.) My doctor had me on a non insulin-medication that I injected into my stomach daily along with the oral medication I had been on for years, and my A1C still wasnâ€™t coming down. I started with MRC on 7/1/14 because I needed to improve my health and I didnâ€™t want to be on insulin, which was the next solution.
I followed the MRC plan which included many menus and I consistently lost weight. In December 2014, I was down 50 lbs. when I received the results of my latest blood panel from my doctor. My A1C was 5.6. Anything under 5.7 is consistent with the absence of diabetes! My doctor took me off of all diabetic medications! No more daily injections, medications, or glucose monitoring.
Today, I have lost 72 lbs. and I am determined to keep it off. I still go to MRC to weigh-in twice a week, I drink all of my water each day, and I keep a food log. I feel healthy for the first time in my life. I swim 1/2 mile twice a week, and I do the elliptical at least three times a week without my hip, knees, or feet causing me pain. I never thought it would be possible for me to get healthy, but with Metabolic, I am. I think about my weight every day, but instead of being frustrated, I have a plan and I gave myself my life back!
If I had one thing to advise a new MRC member, it would be that this program really works. It is less expensive than a trip to the hospital. I tried everything (as I am sure you have) to lose weight. I feel like I have been given the education and tools needed to maintain my weight. With Metabolic, you can stay on track. Even now itâ€™s a daily struggle, but Iâ€™m worth it!
