If you’re like me, you’ve tried it all! Fad diets, low carbs, high protein, keto, the list goes on and on. My name is Tammy Pendygraft, I am the medical esthetician and laser professional at Revive. Losing weight is tough and takes real commitment and discipline. I’m personally writing this blog post because I know what it’s like to have struggled with weight loss. I started my journey about 3 and half months ago and I’ve currently lost 29 lbs. I weighed 215lbs when I started and today, I weigh 188lbs. I still have another 30 lbs to lose to meet my long-term goal but I am more motivated than I’ve ever been. Please believe me when I say you are not alone! Our weight loss program gets true results and has proven in several patients to lose 1-3 lbs per week, a slow sustainable weight loss result.
The weight management offered at Revive Aesthetics in Woodforest utilizes medications designed originally to assist in controlling blood sugar for patients and has now been FDA cleared and is repeatedly effective in assisting with weight-loss! The small-dose, weekly injection is easy, simple and will help not only curb your appetite but keep hunger satisfied longer after you eat!
This treatment, like all weight loss programs, is used best in conjunction with lifestyle changes in diet and exercise. To be honest, for me, I have not been exercising or even changed what I eat but more of how much I eat. This could be different for every individual, we will work with you to figure out the best output. What has changed the most for me is the portions in what actually makes me feel full and the loss of cravings for sugar! I’ve also learned in this very few 3 months that I do not need to put so much food in my body.
Daily exercise and improved diet are necessities in reaching a healthy and sustainable weight-loss goals. With the help of this treatment, one’s daily exercise routine will help the body burn more natural fat as it functions with reduced nutrients stored during daily activities. This simple solution to burning off some of that unwanted flabby tissue we all naturally carry is easier now than ever. Losing the weight has made me more motivated to exercise now that I have more energy. A couple other benefits I have experienced is a lower A1C score as well as a decrease in my glucose levels.
Some great facts about the injection:
- First, the pancreas’s ability to produce insulin is boosted, so that when blood sugar is high, the body can more easily and effectively deal with it, in the natural way.
- Then, the liver is limited in how much sugar it can produce and dispel in the body.
- And finally, the digestive system is slowed, reducing the rate at which the food you eat leaves your stomach, leaving you satisfied for longer than normal after a meal!
- The effectiveness of this medication in regulating blood sugar levels was measured originally within the A1C level of the blood.
