Management Program - Before and After Photos
My name is Denna and here is my weight loss story. Before seeing
Dr. Stege almost 5 years ago I was sure that I would never be able
to loose weight and accept myself as I was, yet I felt helpless
and hopeless. When I first went to the office I was 189 pounds.
In a 52 body, battling depression, had a fast heart
rate, just found out that I developed Type II diabetes and felt
terrible about myself.
Dr Stege worked with me for 5 years to get the weight off. Often
times I did not think it was possible but with the support and encouragement
that he and his staff have given me I have finally been able to
completely change the way that I feel about myself and my life entirely.
For the first time in 33 years I actually feel comfortable in my
own body. Not only has the weight loss given me confidence that
I have never had, it has also improved my health greatly. My diabetes
is diet controlled only no pills or shots, I take half the
inderal (for fast heart rate) that I did when I started, and I am
no longer ashamed of who I am.
Some doctors are not understanding or helpful, however, that is
not true with Dr. Stege. He understands and has the knowledge to
know that we are not overweight because we want to be, we have a
disease and sometimes we as humans need help to control the disease.
This is exactly what Dr. Stege does.
