Rose says good-bye to her migraines, her old wardrobe, and 70 pounds!

on May 5, 2015 in Patient Testimonials, Weight Loss, Wellness Blog

Inspired by her husband’s success with weight loss in a Positive Choice Weight Management Program, Rose didn’t want to be left behind. Now that she has completed the Full Fasting Weight Management Program at The Positive Choice Integrative wellness Center, Rose is the one who is leaving others in the dust. Rose has run her way through her first 5K and now has plans to do more fun runs. Rose keeps active with walking, biking, hiking, yoga, and going to the gym.

“I have never been my ideal goal weight EVER in my adult life. The last time my weight was normal was when I was in the 7th grade!” Thanks to the Full Fasting program at Positive Choice I have lost 150 lbs.  My blood pressure is now normal and I have now been able to stop taking blood pressure medication. My starting weight was 325 lbs and I am currently at 175 lbs.  I am looking forward to entering the maintenance program.  The Positive Choice Wellness Center and the OPTIFAST Weight Management Program helped me tremendously.

Cyndi: Lost 86 lbs.

Cyndi: Lost 86 lbs.

on Apr 2, 2012 in Patient Testimonials

My name is Cyndi Kalbaugh and in 2007 I lost 86 pounds in Kaiser Permanente’s Positive Choice Weight management Program. We all have our stories of how we put the weight on, mine started soon after I married.  I was  busy with “life” and pressing forward,  working on my marriage, planning a career, helping my parents, and starting a family. I was devastated when my Dad passed away after losing his battle with heart disease. He had been obese most of his life.  Still, I pressed on.  I had a marriage to focus on, a career to develop, and I was taking care of my Mom who had been ill for many years.  I focused on everything and everyone else but myself.  I thought, “If I put everyone in front of me I won’t have to deal with myself and my emotions.” The pounds were creeping on… first 10 … then 20, then my first son and oops there’s another 20.  A couple years later I had another child and added another 20 pounds.   I had to take care of them, no time to worry about myself.   At least that’s what I convinced myself of subconsciously. I strayed away from taking photos. I kept telling myself “I’m in control, I’ve been under a lot of stress, but if I get this weight off,  I can take care of it from there.”  That was the beginning of several years of yoyo dieting. I’d manage to lose weight, or at least some of it, but when it came to maintenance and I hadn’t dealt with my personal obstacles, then the weight would creep back on. It was hard for me to admit that I could have some personal issues.  Even when my closest friends would tell me it’s okay to need help, I’d think to myself,  “Not me,  I’m in control.” Then a family member called me and shared devasting news of a serious health issue. I was turning 40 and all of a sudden I thought… “Oh my gosh I could be type 2 diabetic or have some other serious ailment and not even know it.” That was the beginning of this new journey. I decided to join Kaiser Permanente’s Positive Choice Wellness Center’s Weight Program. Within several months I had lost 86 pounds, but more importantly, this time I was ready to listen.  Before I would have sat with other overweight people and thought “I’m not like...
