My name is Kat and I am 15 years old. When I was younger I realized that I was a little different from the other girls in my school. I was overweight and had to go to the school based health clinic more frequently to check on my high cholesterol problem. I am very self-conscious about the way I look and the way my body looks. So after trying different things and playing multiple sports the NP at the school clinic suggested that I go see Dr. Scinta.

When I first met with Jen I learned that they could help me lose weight and get control of my cholesterol. After different tests I learned that I was insulin resistant. With this information I went home and tried the program out. I was eating 4 meals a day: breakfast, lunch, a small snack, and dinner. I soon realized that it wasn’t all that hard. It wasn’t a diet, but a life style change that has helped everyone in my family.

I had great support from everyone (Dr. Scinta, the girls in the office, and my family), and seeing the extra weight come off me was a great feeling too. In the end I had lost the weight I was looking to lose. I even lost more pounds of fat than in my actual weight. I am very proud of myself and am starting to become less self-conscious.  I would like to thank Dr. Scinta and everyone at the office for helping me succeed at something I have been fighting for my entire life.

Kat has lost 16 pounds. She started our program on 2/16/10 with Dr Scinta’s BOUNCE Program. Kat is now at maintenance with a normal BMI! She has just finished playing softball for her HS and is now playing for a travel team.
