Barbara Success Story - Step Ahead Wellness
Before XXX lbs.      After XXX lbs.

“Over the past year, I’ve lost 200 pounds. More exciting to me is, I no longer take blood pressure medication, my blood sugar is normal, and I walk five to six days a week, without pain. I have my life back.”

Barbara’s Story

By the time I got to Step Ahead Wellness Center, I’d been on every diet at least once in my life and failed.

Chronic pain in my hips, legs, and feet, made walking difficult. I had high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and was looking at starting medication for high blood sugar.

Dr. Neiman worked closely with me, looking at my history of weight loss and gains. She suggested exploring bariatric surgery in conjunction with Step Ahead. It took a while to realize that although my dieting had failed, I was not a failure.

I started out on the 12-week Optifast program and then, working with my Step Ahead dietitian, began adding fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.

Over the past year I’ve lost 200 pounds. More exciting to me is, I no longer take blood pressure medication, my blood sugar is normal, and I walk five to six days a week, without pain. I have my life back.
