Jill Feels Great after Losing the Weight
“It feels great. I’m not ashamed of my body, I’m proud of it. I wear a bikini on the beach now. Whereas before, I wore shorts and a t-shirt if I went to the beach. And living in Hawaii, you want to go to the beach. It’s hard to explain why you’re pasty pale in Hawaii, when your friends knew you love the sunshine. So, but now I’m the first one who says, “Hey, lets go to the beach!”
When I was younger, when I weighed less, I always wore my shirts tucked in. As you get bigger, you don’t, because you kinda wanna hide the fluff. And you finally find nice ways to say that. When I started losing weight, I realized that I started tucking my shirts. And wearing things, I don’t want to wear buggy shorts anymore.
Now I’m a size 8 and I was in a size 16 when I started. So it’s quite the difference. I have nothing in my closet that I wore before.
I don’t wanna be that person anymore. I like who I am now. And my husband, he loves me no matter what. He loved me you know at more than two hundred and ten pounds! But I love me a lot more.”
People are Asking
“People, all the time, would stop and ask me if I had lost weight and what I’ve done to lose weight. And I’m always like, “Dr. Katsura. You need to talk to him.” I told them to talk to him. It’s a free consult. Go talk to him. He might can help you.
They ask, you know, were you working out all the time? And I said no. The main thing I changed was the way I eat. I’ve always been active. And that’s why gaining weight was hard because when you’re already active, it makes it more difficult to exercise more.”
Dr. Katsura Has Changed My Life
“I think for me having someone that monitored my progress every week that I knew okay if I will cheat today how I’m gonna feel in two days when I stepped on the scale. Everybody back slides when there’s a bad week and you eat more than you’d intended and so he’s always very positive, and his staff are very positive. But that minute, you know, that little devil versus little angel on your shoulder always tells me, yeah you gonna step on that little scale and face the music. And you know, comes Thursday, are you sure you really need that cookie?
He’s changed my life! I thank him every time I’m there for the changes I can see and that’s one of the things that scares me most, leaving Hawaii. I know that all I have to do is call and email and I would still have that support but going farther away is a little scary that I have to step and do this completely on my own because he is such a big support and that bright point in my life.”
Jill’s Attitude is a Lot Better
“My attitude, definitely, is a lot better. Not just about being able to do things but the desire to get up and do things. I’m definitely happier and I was always one of those people who believe that your outside look shouldn’t reflect your inside because who you are inside is what matters. But when the outside is wrapped in a pretty bow, it’s a lot easier to be happy in the inside and I feel now I’m wrapped in a pretty bow.”
