I started my journey with Vitality Weight Loss in December of 2019. I was referred by my nephrologist because my kidneys were failing due to all the fluid my body was carrying. We had worked with different combinations of diuretics for 18 months with no results so it was decided we were not going to get control of this till I lost weight. I started the actual diet in in January 2020 at 537 pounds. This time I was determined that this time would be different. With the help of all the people at Vitality I am down 79 pounds, 2 dress sizes, off my blood pressure medication and even had to move my seat up in my car twice!. All by making small changes a little at a time, I cut fast food out of my life, stopped eating processed food as much as possible. The weekly guidance has helped me stay on track during a pandemic, through the death of my father and the death of my dog. It has not been an easy year but taking all these small steps has added up and recently it was determined I was no longer in Kidney Failure!!! I did it for my health and it is actually working and it is an individualized program that I have made my life choice. Vitality helped me change my relationship with food and for that I will always be thankful. The journey is far from over but if I can lose weight during the chaos that has been 2020, I can do anything!
