Just wanted to share a note from a patient who has reached a milestone in her quest to get healthier…….

Dr. Tapia,
Just wanted to share that for the first time in 17 years the scale finally registered a number less than 200. For all the other times that I gave up for various reasons in the struggle to lose weight, it finally makes sense with my behavior changes and your professional guidance. Thank you. Feel free to share with other patients if you like. I’m sure there are more like me that have battled to get below that 200 mark for years and might have come close but just never got there and gave up. My goal weight at first appeared forever far away and difficult to imagine what I might look like if I reached it, but now I say, “Game On!” I can see the goal and that drivea me even harder to get there. On top of it all, I’m still not allowed to work out, but learned that eating the right foods and the right portions all for the right reasons can still allow me to lose weight and feel great doing it.
