Vicky Vanatta from Spokane, WA
My name is Vicky Vanatta and I live in Spokane, WA. My occupation is a home health aide. I heard about Positive Changes through the paper and the billboards. I felt really depressed before I came to Positive Changes. I just wasn't doing well. I felt really bad. My doctor told me I needed to lose 80 pounds and I was not able to have weight loss surgery. I just didn't know what I was going to do and decided to give Positive Changes a call.
I've been overweight off and on most of my adult life. I've lost 102 pounds since coming to Positive Changes. I now wear a size 6/8 or a small in most clothing. It's taken me nine months to lose the weight. I've tried many different diets in the past. I've tried low carb. I've tried the point counting program. The list goes on and on. I've lost weight, but I always gained it back.
My program at Positive Changes was just great. They helped me with a lot of different things and I was able to lose the weight very easily. I was really not on a diet. I saw results within the first week. My weight loss has been about two to three pounds each week.
It took about a month to notice I was changing my eating habits. My behavioral changes have been great. I now drink water, whereas before I used to just drink a lot of Coke and Pepsi. I'm doing a lot better. I don't drink pop anymore.
I did not feel in control of my eating habits before coming to Positive Changes. I really had a lot of bad habits. I ate a lot of ice cream, chips, pop and other things that I just don't eat now. My eating habits have changed about 100 percent. I have smaller meals. I drink a lot of water and I don't have all those old bad habits anymore. In addition, my husband has lost 70 pounds just eating the same foods that I am.
I saw my doctor and he was very impressed with this. He wanted to know all about Positive Changes. I no longer take blood pressure medicine. I'm able to walk a lot longer distances and am able to walk at a faster rate. Before I would have a lot of breathing issues when I was walking. I had stopped walking for quite awhile because my knees hurt so bad when I walked. Now they don't bother me at all. I also walk my dog all the time now whereas before I always needed to stop and rest. Now my dog needs the rest before I do.
My friends and family have all noticed a big change. They have made a lot of comments on how great I look. Losing the weight has given me a lot more confidence in the way I feel. Before coming to Positive Changes, I would never talk to anyone because I just didn't feel comfortable. Now I've got much more self-esteem.
I felt the cost of the program was justified. I did a lot of thinking about this and I've had so many improvements. I just can't tell you how much I've improved. I am very satisfied. The most valuable benefit I've had from Positive Changes is my health. My health issues have just really improved. I'm very happy with it. The most wonderful thing that's happened since I've joined Positive Changes is my daughter made a comment to me one day. She said, "Mom, I'm in awe of you," and it just really made me feel great.
I believe that my weight loss is permanent. I will never go back to being overweight and not eating right again. I'm doing this for life. I would recommend Positive Changes to anybody who wants to lose weight.
* By following our program, our clients lost more than 4 lbs. on average in their first 3 weeks.
