Jennifer’s 73lb Weight Loss

Being overweight is something that I have struggled with since my teenage years. I had tried several diets before, and even tried Weight Watchers and the Atkins Diets. Each time, I managed to lose a few pounds, but the weight always returned. After a while, I just simply accepted the idea that I would always be “the heavy girl” and gave up trying to lose weight.

It took the birth of my 2nd daughter, within a 2 ½ year time span, to realize that I needed to get healthy, for myself and for my daughters. After having the baby, I weighed an all-time high of 252 pounds. When I finally found my saving grace (Dr. Scinta), my “newborn” was already 4 months old, and I was still 243 pounds. I only managed to lose 9 pounds on my own in 4 month’s time…..

The combination of Dr. Scinta’s medical expertise in obesity and weight loss, along with the caring and compassionate staff of Medical Weight Loss of NY, have proved to be the long term solution I was looking for. In the last 10 months that I have been with Dr. Scinta, I have managed to lose 73 pounds, and I now weigh 170 pounds. In less than 1 year, I have gone from a size 22 to a size 12, and I have gotten my life back. Dr. Scinta has given my daughters and I a truly precious and priceless gift. I will forever and always be appreciative of Dr. Scinta and her expertise in the area of weight loss and morbid obesity. She truly is changing people’s lives and making dreams come true!

All of my love and appreciation to Dr. Wendy Scinta and her Staff.

    SOOO happy for you!! You can tell a difference in your personality alone since you first started. You could tell you were in a low place in your life…never seemed to be truly happy. And when I see you today its great bc you are a more positive and happy person…amazing how changes like that in your life can make such a difference then just the outside appearance.
