Carla Before EditedCarla After Edited At her peak weight, Carla was depressed, tired, and miserable.  The only thing she found happiness and joy in was food.  Weight loss surgery was an option, but not one that Carla wanted for herself.  She felt like she had no options.  That all changed when she came to Olivera Weight Management.

“I almost didn’t come because I didn’t want Phentermine, but I heard there were more services available and wanted to try them out.”

Carla decided to try Lipotropic injections weekly.  At a follow-up appointment she also spoke with the Registered Dietitian, Cassandra, as she had a few questions and wasn’t losing weight as quickly as she had hoped she would.  After incorporating some simple, straightforward suggestions from Cassandra, Carla’s weight started “melting off like butter.”

“I lost seven pounds in a week!  That shot and Cassandra’s advice saved my life!  It’s amazing.”

Carla started exercising and implementing the recommended changes to her diet.  “It’s a lifestyle change,” she says.  In a few short months Carla has lost a total of thirty-five pounds.

“I will be forty-nine next week and I now feel refreshed, energized and have a more positive attitude.  I feel like I’m in my twenties!”

When asked what advice she would give to others who want to lose weight, she said “You have to want it and to work for it or you won’t have it. It gets so much easier – even if you’re really tired.  It just becomes a priority once you realize how much better it makes you feel.”
