Noel’s weight loss journey with Calla Slimspa started on July 15, 2009 and by October 26, 2010 she had lost 118.5 pounds on Calla Slimspa’s medical weight loss program.
Weight has always been a challenge for Noel and not just losing it but keeping it off as well. In fact, she’s tried at least 3 times before to lose the weight but with no real success. So when Noel decided she needed a new weight loss program she wanted one that was medically supervised and one where she could eat regular food. She found both of her requirements with Calla Slimspa and as an added bonus – it provided her with a tax benefit.
We asked Noel the following questions about her weight loss journey with Calla Slimspa .
I wanted a program that I ate regular food on and one that was medically supervised. The “diet” was unbelievably easy. The hard part is maintenance. I have an addiction that I will fight every day of my life. I am hopeful that I can continue the maintenance part of the program for that long.
WHAT DID YOU “GAIN” BY LOSING THE WEIGHT?
The “gain” is the confidence to walk into any clothing store and know that I will find something that will fit me and not be ashamed. I was never small. I am smaller now that I have ever been in my entire life. I wore a skirt the other day that I made when I was 16 or 17 years old. It fits perfectly now. I was always confident but never confident in my body. I have never had men look at me. I was “honked” at for the first time in my life in December and I believe I am still flying on cloud 9. I did not even know when someone was flirting with me. All of the above has changed my life so much.
HAS THE WEIGHT LOSS FROM CALLA’S PROGRAM HELPED YOUR OVERALL HEALTH?
I was on 2 cholesterol medications. In January 2010, my doctor took me off both. In September 2009, I was diagnosed with a fatty liver. By January, my levels fell back to normal range. My doctor has told me that the way I eat now is how I MUST eat the rest of my life. I can not thank Calla Slimspa and the staff enough for “healing” me.
HOW ELSE HAS LOSING WEIGHT WITH CALLA SLIMSPA CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
I was always busy and active. I never let my size stop me. However, I now do things that my size would not allow like kayaking (could never fit in a kayak). I never exercised during my weight loss time. I have now returned to Jazzercise and absolutely love it even more than I did years ago. My recovery time is far less and I love that I can go to a 5:45am session and go off to work and not fall asleep.
WHAT DID YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT CALLA SLIMSPA?
Yes, the medical supervision was the primary reason I chose and stayed with Calla Slimspa and the second was the fact that the diet was based on regular food. But I love the staff. I had the same medical assistant check me each week and I believe that the “bond” we developed is what made my success even better. Kristen is gone and I meet with our medical assistants now during my weekly weigh in. Each one of them are great and are always nice and helpful.
The hard part has just started for me but I know Calla Slimspa will be there for me to offer guidance. Thank you!
