I think the Shulman Weight Loss Clinic entered my life at a time I was looking for change not just with my weight but with my life. The support I received at the clinic is invaluable and it's impact can't be put into words. I feel empowered now to take charge of my life because I have been given the tools to do so. I not only learned about nutrition and how to take care of myself but I learned how to live again and enjoy life. I realize now that my trepidation around losing weight was only because I thought I needed to sacrifice in order to gain what I wanted. The staff at the SWLC helped me see that I'm not sacrificing the things I love, rather they helped me find ways I could still enjoy the foods I love but just in a different way. The "side effects" of losing weight and getting healthy have been great! I now have an overall positive attitude and mood, glowing skin, shiny hair and the aches and pains I used to complain about have completely vanished. Today I have more confidence to do the things I've always wanted to do but thought I couldn't. THANK YOU!

Now, I enjoy getting dressed in the morning and my clothes are so much more comfortable. My self esteem has soared and this is all due to the support and encouragement that I received from Dr. Joey and her associates. Thank you! Thank you!
