After being diagnoses with Type II Diabetes at least 10 years ago and continually gaining weight since graduating high school and countless warnings from my family doctor, I finally weighed in for a physical at 318 pounds. Dr. Sundaram recommended the Center for Lifestyle Medicine. After meeting with Lisa Moeller (now Maher) and the nutritionist, I started watching what I ate, working with a trainer and doing daily cardio exercise. I started to lose weight. After going through a few plateus, I can say I’ve lost 110 pounds! I feel great! In the year 2013, I ran six 5Ks! I have now been cleared of diabetes completely. No more medication! I would like to thank Dr. Sundaram, his talented staff, and also the staff of my gym for helping with my lifetime change. It’s good to go there (Cedar Valley Cardiovascular Center) and see their smiles and hear the encouragement.
