JennyLiz’s photographic timeline of her success! From 2015 to today!
In 2015, two years after having her daughter, JennyLiz was unhappy with her body weight of 208 lbs. She heard about the appetite suppressant (Phentermine) based program at Olivera Weight Mangement and decided to try it. She started the program, and worked toward lifestyle changes recommended by the medical staff. She decreased her portion sizes and tried to get more active. Six months later, as seen in the second picture, she was down to 180 lbs.
JennyLiz has three children, ranging in age from three to twelve. As all moms know, this can make focusing on yourself quite a challenge, but at this point JennyLiz has some advice for parents. “You have to be consistent and take care of yourself first. When I put myself first, I take better care of my family. My kids will grow up healthier because I am putting myself first.”
Once JennyLiz had this realization that she needed to put herself first, she became more consistent in her exercise and eating habits. The Phentermine helped increase her energy levels, making the exercise easier for her. As a result, she started exercising six times per week and switched to healthier snack options. She reports that she doesn’t follow any strict diet, but instead followed the advice provided by the medical staff at Olivera. She quit eating fast food, chips, soda and a few other foods, and drinks a lot of water. “It isn’t anything super strict, but I also decreased my portion sizes, and I stop eating when I am full.” With this increased consistency and dedication, she is now down to 135 lbs!
Today, JennyLiz reports all of the work is well worth the reward. She loves to see her kids adopting her healthier habits. She adores hearing “Mom, you look so pretty!” and “Mom you look so good.” She finally feels like she is the role model she’s always wanted to be.
What does JennyLiz have to say about Olivera Weight Management?
“Everybody is so friendly and is here for a purpose! They are there to help, encourage and educate, not judge. No matter how much or how little I lost, people were positive and congratulated and encouraged me.”
And her advice for others?
“Stay committed, even if it is only twenty minutes a day dedicated to reaching your goals. One thing at a time is okay. It is also okay to get help. It isn’t cheating – its getting some extra help. Coming to Dr. Olivera gives you the extra positivity and encouragement you need. The whole program is super energizing for me. It helps me stay focused on what I am eating and drinking while the Phentermine gives me energy and helps suppress my appetite.”
