Where is the rest of you?

People were stopping Carl and asking him this question after he lost a significant portion of his weight with W8MD(pronounced weight MD).

Having lost about 75 lbs. in 3 months, he averaged about 25 lbs of weight loss per month, although this is not typical*. Although individual results may vary, this is as fast or faster than what is seen in most Bariatric surgery patients but without  surgery. Watch this amazing and inspiring weight loss success story of Carl titled "where is the rest of you!"

The best news is - his insurance covered his weight loss visits with W8MD. Watch his experience on youtube!


Update on Carl - since the interview on youtube, managed to lose another 25 lbs taking the total weight loss to about 100 lbs and feels great! 

Here are the before and after pictures!

 After losing 100 lbs*


 I spotted a pamphlet in a doctor's waiting room on W8MD. This peeked my interest and I read on. "Are you tired of being overweight?" I was!


As I read further I discovered that not only was this a center for weight loss but also for sleep problems. My husband had told me that I was snooring very loudly at night and that it seemed I stopped breathing at times.

I called and scheduled an appointment with the doctor. Dr. Tumpati was very through in explaining to me the reason for my increased weight was due to insulin resistance. We also scheduled a sleep study and found that I stopped breathing an average of 38 times per hour due to sleep apnea!

I am now using a machine(CPAP) at night to assist with my breathing. I am experiencing more quality sleep and am not tired during the day. Dr. Tumpati explained that improper sleep can also lead to weight gain.

I began a 1000 calorie partial meal replacement program consisting of nutritional supplements as well as one meal daily - 4 oz of lean protien and a green vegetable.

In 12 weeks I have lost 26 pounds and am moving more freely and feeling better every day. I have a way to go but I know what I have to do to continue to successfully loose weight.

Dr. Tumpati is very knowledgeable on weight management and proper nutrition. He is willing to spend time explaining why and how different foods effect our weight gain and loss. I appreciate understanding the effects of what I have been eating and why it is necessary to make changes to improve my health.

 Happy Patient

Hello my name is Elizabeth W. I am writing today to tell you about my experience with W8MD Weightloss Center.


I had been gaining weight for years and couldn’t figure out why this was happening because I have always been a small and petite woman. I was also tired all the time and had severely dry skin. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in 1999. I was put on meds to control this disease and probably will be on it the rest of my life.


By the time I was diagnosed, the weight had already gotten out of control and the food choices I made didn’t help either. Every time I went to the doctor he would ask me did I have any concerns and my concerns were always my weight and how tired I was. I guess after hearing me complain so much he decided I needed a sleep study done to determine if this was the reason for the weight gain and fatigue all the time.


I had the sleep study done at Poly Tech Sleep Services and it was determined that I didn’t have sleep apnea. I was pleased that I didn’t have sleep apnea but I was still concerned about my weight. Once I met with Dr. Prab Tumpati about the sleep study he explained to me that I might have insulin resistance and would I like to try a weight loss program that would not only help me lose weight but also help me to lower my cholesterol and to help prevent other medical issues in the future.


I agreed and started the weight loss program. I was nervous at first because every diet I have tried in the past I failed at it. This time I was determined to lose weight and hopefully keep it off. I was able to stick to the diet. I would drink shakes four times a day have a bar with lunch and a meat and veggie for dinner and drank plenty of water. I did this faithfully for 12 weeks and the weight just started falling off. I couldn’t believe it myself. People started to notice. My clothes were getting too big. I was so delighted I didn’t know what to do with myself. I weighed in once a week and met with the doctor once a month.


I lost in total 30 Lbs so far. None of the scales I weighed in on werethe same so I only went by the one I have at home and it was always a few pounds less than when I weighed in at the office. Of course I go by my scale at home, and it tells me I lost 30 POUNDS can you believe it! 30 POUNDS!


I am still a work in progress but I must say I feel good. I still have 20 more pounds to go before I reach my goal and I am trying it on my own without the shakes and bars. I have confidence that I can do it I want to thank Ms. Laura and Dr. Tumpati for all your help. I now make better food choices I have more energy and more self esteem because of W8MD Medical Weight Loss Center.

 

Happily Submitted,

Elizabeth W.

I am a 51 year old male with a little bit of a tummy and overweight by about 30 pounds. I was taking about 5 medications and all my doctors including my cardiologist at Temple University Hospital were after me to lose weight for the past few years. However, none of my doctors were able to spesifically guide me in losing weight other than tell me to "lose weight". Having tried many things on my own, I decided to seek help from Dr. Tumpati in the North East Philadelphia Office.

Dr. Tumpati spent a lot of time explaining the metabolic risks associated with the belly fat and put me on a weight loss program with about 1000 calories a day. Having lost about 20 pounds and still going good, I went to see my cardiologist for follow up. I was pleasantly surprised to see my blood work that showed my cholesterol and other tests were in the ideal range and I was taken off of all 5 medications.

Personally, I never felt better. Having realized the benefits of losing the weight, I am still continuing the program as I like to lose another 10 pounds. Best of all, Dr. Tumpati accepts my insurance for the visits so that I do not have to pay out of pocket. His staff are very friendly and treat me like family. I recommend Dr. Tumpati without any reservations for anybody that not only wants to lose weight but also learn about healthy life style!

My name is Harry, and a little history up front might explain my enthusiasm. I am 63 years of age and still working in a physical capacity as a maintenance mech/tech, and my joints are noticeably pain free and I’m feeling more agile. Another plus is my sleep partner has commented I’m snoring less.

I’m currently a W8MD Client for 12 weeks and have lost 27.5 pounds. In that time frame, I’ve managed to surpass my goal weight and am now embarking on losing an additional 20 pounds for purely selfish reasons. I’m feeling and looking good, and casual acquaintances are also commenting which is encouraging.

I feel with the continued guidance of Dr. Tumpati and assistant Laura, I fully expect to attain my goal. I have impending abdominal surgery to schedule which was my determining factor to lose the weight. I figure post-op rehab will be tolerable. I also recognize the opportunity presented to get myself back in shape and I’ll not waste it.

So what do you have to lose?........ Besides the weight?......... Good Luck. Harry Q. 7/17/12 *
