Prior to coming to Bee Healthy Medical Weight Loss and Wellness in Irmo, Pam weighted 277. She had already begun her weigh loss journey, down 33 pounds when she came to Bee Healthy. Since her fist appointment at Bee Healthy, in March of 2015, she has lost 27.5 more pounds and a total of 4 inches in her waist.
Pam is very dedicated to her goal of “bee-ing” healthy and reaching her weight loss goals. She maintains a positive attitude even when she has difficult weeks. She is diligent in coming in to the clinic every week to receive her injections do her weigh ins. Pam never misses her follow-up appointments. We are so proud of the work Pam has done, and we look forward to celebrating with her as she continues on the path of health and wellness.
Here is what Pam had to say about her journey with Bee Healthy…
Bee Healthy: What motivated you to start your weight loss?
Pam: I felt horrible, I was in a size 24 and I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. I knew with heart disease being in my Dads family that if I didn’t do something about it now it would get worse.
Bee Healthy: What was the hardest lifestyle change for you to adjust to?
Bee Healthy: Are there specific foods that you chose to “give up”?
Pam: Mountain Dew and SWEETS, but now I don’t want either.
Bee Healthy: What is your favorite exercise, and how often do you do it?
Pam: I enjoy walking, but I don’t do it nearly enough.
Bee Healthy: What’s your favorite healthy snack?
Pam: Almonds or Peanut Butter
Bee Healthy: What did you do to get past the weight loss plateaus?
Pam: I just tried to eat more protein and NO carbs after 3:00.
Bee Healthy:What’s been most rewarding about your weight loss?
Pam: My clothes getting smaller, and people telling me how great and healthy I look.
Bee Healthy: What are some things you enjoy doing now that you didn’t enjoy so much before your weight loss?
Pam: I can walk without getting winded or tired.
Bee Healthy: How did you remain disciplined in today’s fast-paced society?
Pam: I just focused on me.
Bee Healthy: How has the staff at Bee Healthy helped you to reach your goals?
Pam: They encourage me and send me little text messages. When I lose they jump for joy, and when I gain they want to cry with me but they get me right back on track.
Bee Healthy: How have your friends and family reacted to the “new you”?
Pam: Most of them didn’t really notice until I put up a before and after picture. Then they were like, ‘ Wow’. All of my family and friends have been supportive and are so proud of me and how healthy I am becoming.
We are so proud of Pam. We love being a part of her journey, and we hope she inspires you. You CAN lose weight and “Bee Healthy”. Call one of our clinics to set up your appointment.
