70 Pounds Gone
”My weight was killing me,” says Anibal Asosto, 47, of Clermont, who is now one happy man since he has shed 70 pounds in the past year and has gotten off all of his medications, including blood-pressure pills.
“I feel totally different, physically and mentally. I have more confidence and that has been the most important thing,” Anibal says.
He was inspired to go to Transformations Medical Weight Loss in Clermont after seeing a friend’s success with the program.
“One day I looked in the mirror and thought, ‘I can’t deal with this weight anymore,’ so I just showed up and that is how I started,” he says. “I didn’t know what to expect, but they made me feel very comfortable.”
He lost 10 pounds in his first week, and another 8 pounds in the second week, which was all he need to keep going.
“I was never starving,” he says.
Anabal was pleased his bloodwork improved as he lost weight. His triglycerides, once 350, dropped to normal, and his cholesterol has been in the healthy range.
He enjoys having more energy to enjoy physical activities with his son, and he’s looking forward to running in a 10K race this month. “It’s impressive how losing weight can change your life,” he says.
