Our Paitent Experiences
I had been obese most of my life but at 67, my weight had spiraled out of control, and I was desparate. A major weight loss program had worked for a short term several years before, but I quickly became derailed and gained back the 75 pounds I had lost, plus another 50. I learned about Medi-Cal through a friend who had sucessfully been on the program. After immediately making my call to the Medi Cal office, I met with Corissa in May of 2021 and began my Medi Cal journey. In one year, I was able to lose over 100 pounds. In 15 months, the total is almost 140 pounds and I feel fabulous! My blood sugar has dropped to a point where I no longer need medication. Going from a size 24 to a 12 is amazing to me. The knowledgeable and emotional support that I receive from Corissa is absolutely invaluable! Have there been slides during this journey? Absolutely! But Corissa has been with me every step of the way with encouragement and making me realize that it’s life to enjoy eating what we love and that we do need to enjoy it. The first month or two were absolutely the most difficult, but I don’t hesitate to tell anyone that this is the best thing that I have ever done for myself.
