Terri Williams - 97 lbs. lost
It was in April 2008 I just looked at myself and thought, "I can't go on looking and weighting this much" . . . at my heaviest of 220lbs. My blood pressure was out of control. I was looking at heart disease and possible diabetes.
I had heard some of the ladies in the office talking about Dr. Girouard and his Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic, and how their friends lost weight and kept it off. So I looked into it, and made the decision to do it.
Now, years later and I love being myself. I lost my weight and my blood pressure is normal (no more medication). I actually love going to work out, I love walking and swimming, which I didn't before. I was out of shape and could not do those things without losing my breath. Being part of the weight loss program has changed my life. If you think, "well I can't do it." Think again, because you can. I did!!!Click on image to view before and after picture.

Camilla Newland - 100+ lbs. lost
After going through 3 pregnancies and experiencing a broken leg I put on a lot of weight that I could not fathom to get off. I could not even manage to get myself motivated to start trying to do anything about it because I was so extremely overweight. My self-esteem was starting to decrease along with my energy levels and my doctor said that it was time to do something about my weight. I asked for advice and he mentioned several different options, so I looked up the information to the Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic and made an appointment.
My first visit was in November of 2008. I first had to watch a video with Dr. Girouard explaining the program and I was immediately INSPIRIED!! The video and staff really helped motivate me to finally get busy working on my weight loss. I expressed on my first visit that I would be happy just to lose 20 lbs. and began a successful journey and managed to lose more than 100 lbs. I feel better about myself and I have so much energy now. This is a wonderful program that equips you with the tools to lose weight, and shows you how to make the lifestyle changes that you need to remain successful.Click on image to view before and after picture.
Jeanine - 44 lbs. lost
The day before my appointment in September 2007 one of my employees said to me, "There's one thing I know about you. When you make up your mind to do something, you do it." As my employee left my office I thought, "He's right. So why haven't I decided to get rid of the weight?" I looked up the number and immediately called Dr. Girouard. I felt the shift in me. I had decided to get rid of the weight. I had made up my mind and nothing was going to stop me.
Dr. Girouard's methods made it easy. I feel energetic when I am on the diet. Better, in fact than I feel when I just eat as much of whatever I want. When I had tried to diet before just through calorie reduction, my energy level would decline, so much so that it wasn't worth it. The weight began melting off me. A lady I work with began calling me "the incredible shrinking woman." I loved that and smiled each time I thought of her saying it.
It took longer to get dressed in the a.m. as I often had to try on several pairs of pants before I found a pair small enough. I donated piles and piles of clothes to Goodwill. I was not going back up the scale. The monthly visits are pleasant. His staff is wonderful, friendly, supportive and caring. Sometimes some of the weight comes back, when I eat a lot of junk, but for the most part I have been able to maintain the "new me" and I know when some weight does come back I can deal with it with the help of Dr. Girouard and his staff.
In 2007 I felt old. In August 2008 I did not think they would allow me to leave Dubai as they did not believe my passport photo was me; I had changed that drastically. Now I feel young, alive, energetic and enthusiastic about life. I am often mistaken for being more than a decade younger than I am, and so appreciate how easy they made it to be who I wanted to be.Click on image to view before and after picture.
