I approached Dr. David at Premier Medical Weight Management because I had feelings of despair, wondering if I was just “supposed” to be feeling “this way…” heading the wrong way on a one way at 48 years old!
Dr. David helped me by transforming the way I viewed health, my body, food, exercise and to a degree = LIFE!!! My results have been a new sense of serenity. I now eat when I am hungry without feeling guilty. I exercise because I actually enjoy the ME time. Now, I honor my body and in turn it performs throughout the day both physically and emotionally engaged. Not to mention the 50+ pound weight loss and BMI of 25 heading further down each month. 🙂
I like that Dr. David’s approach is tailored to the individual in front of her. She is truly gifted with the ability to be a Doctor and yet take her knowledge and explain in a simplistic way. She explains the science behind her approach and IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!
I found the experience…emotional – letting go and surrendering is just emotional!!! I’m so glad I finally let my stubbornness go and started really HEARING her:)
I would recommend Dr. David to anyone who breathes!!!!
The transformation process is what I have been most in “awe” about. I am 49 years old and I have lost and gained more weight in my “YO-YO” life than anyone I know. I have attempted to get healthy at every level. Finally, last January I truly believed that “my body” was just meant to be overweight. That was just Me and I should just stop fighting my inherent weight! To love me for me! Then I heard about Dr. David…
Dr. David (in her calm and kind approach) took my Stubborn, Know It All – Female Self and Humbled Me!! Yes, she took my many words and my many tears (many tears) and re-educated me on how I viewed FOOD. I was “Fat Phobic!!” I “could not lose weight without starving myself” – in fact I tried to do her program by not eating! It did not work – I lost the LEAST weight during the weeks I reverted back to my “old thinking self!”
Dr. David “Educated!!” me week after week – until I began listening. Truly, I came in each week crying – crying over what I am still not sure. Maybe my fear if the program did not work, my sadness that I had been approaching food wrong for over 40 years? Whatever the reason, she did not give up on me!! More than once she stated, “You are paying me to teach you this” – so why was I FIGHTING her words? Finally – I surrendered and when I surrendered to finally listen to her, the tears and emotions disappeared and the results kept improving.
Dr. David would take my “stubbornness” and “fight mode” disagreeing with her in a very educational way. She would supply facts and homework. Her homework over the last 5 months included two books. Both were Game Changers in my LIFE. Yes my LIFE. They took my marriage, career and self to the next level.
The final transformation was the “Exercise!” Honestly, I have never enjoyed exercising!! 12 years ago when I was pregnant I just stopped working out – I never liked it but I still did it. Over the years I have walked my dogs, used my Elliptical and Treadmill – but each time was sporadic and painfully boring. As Dr. David and I went through this process, I was introduced to Spin Class. Not only was I educated on WHY exercise was important, for the first time in my LIFE I finally found an exercise that I loved!!!! Now I am at Spin Class 4x a week and loving every minute I am there.
The number one problem that has been solved is that I am finally EDUCATED on my health – Dr. David took all the media, fads, $$ signs out of the equation and honestly just educated me on making Healthy Decisions that last a lifetime. This is not a diet but a lifestyle that is both a conscious balance between living life and making smart (educated) choices.
This program is not treated like a business but instead like a classroom, educating each patient on both the scientific and emotional reasons why we are there!
