Before visiting the Functional Medical Institute, I was very depressed and not feeling well. I was overweight, not happy about it, and didn’t know what to do with it all. I was running 6-9 miles per week, eating 1,200 calories per day, but not loosing any weight. I felt like I was putting in a lot of effort but not seeing any results.
I originally saw Dr. Michele and was an emotional basket case the day I came in. She talked to me at length as to where I was on very many levels. It was the first time I opened up honestly about where I was emotionally. She read something to me that was quite appropriate and then she prayed with me. I walked out of there with some hope that I had not felt in a long while.
Within about 3 weeks I was starting to feel more like the real Phyllis again. She then suggested that I see Dr. Mark, which I did a week later.
Now, I am down 41 pounds (16%) of body fat. Best of all, I feel much better and no longer hurt all over. I feel like myself again and have regained my confidence.
PS – In the past, I would join a popular weight loss program to lose weight after I had a baby. I would always plan on becoming a lifetime member, but after just a couple of months I would get discouraged and stop.
Dr. Mark’s PRIME Lifestyle Program is the only thing that has worked for me.
