For the last 27 years, I have been a caregiver for my handicapped son. As a caregiver you often find yourself putting others first. It is just the way it is. You never seem to have enough time for yourself. Last October, I was overweight, tired and feeling like I had lost myself. I knew I had to do something or my health was going to deteriorate and I would not be there for my son or my husband.
I was fortunate enough to have a good friend tell me about the Ideal You Weight Loss Clinic in Bend. I looked them up on the internet and stopped by the clinic to talk to one of the weight loss coaches. Everything she said about the program made total sense to me. I really liked that they worked closely with your physician and met one on one with you every week. It was important for me to have that level of accountability and support. I decided right then that it was time to take care of myself, to put myself first and make my health a priority.
I have been on the program for four months and have lost 30 lbs. I feel and look great! I have more energy and have gone off of two medications. More importantly, I have learned that it is okay to take care of myself.
