Patient Stephanie Eisenberg Shares her Journey as a G.O. blog Contributer

Hello Go Weightloss fans!

My name is Stephanie Eisenberg and I wanted to introduce myself as the newest contributor to Greater Orlando Medical Weightloss. I’m 27 years old, and not even halfway through my weightloss journey, but I’m feeling great and loving the program.

A little over 12 weeks ago I made a phone call that changed my life. I called Greater Orlando Medical Weightloss and made an appointment.

After taking a good long hard look in the mirror (and subsequently breaking down into tears) I knew I had a problem. I saw a fat person looking back, and I was scared. What I didn’t realize is that I wasn’t just overweight and unhealthy, I was morbidly obese. When you’re not even 30 and the words “morbidly” and “obese” come out of a doctor’s mouth,it’s hard not to pay attention. So, I started the program.

I was scared at first. The word diet is a pretty frightening word, especially when the person following one has been on and off diets for the past 15 years. But, this program is different. I get to eat, and eat a lot. I started out having to take in 165 grams of protein a day. That’s a lot of protein! Now I’m down to 145 grams.

I started the program in the middle of April. Since then, I’ve lost 35 pounds, and I’ve discovered a lot about myself, and the best part is, I’m still in the discovery process.
I’m excited to share with you what’s becoming my future: a healthier and happier life. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and remember, you’re worth it. You’re worth taking control of eating issues, weight problems, and most importantly your health.

I know I’m worth it, and I know every minute I’ve spent on my own transformation has been worth it.

Always,
Stephanie Eisenberg
