Milt of Frisco Loses over 50 Lbs with Nutrition Coaching of Elect Wellness
Tell us a little about yourself…
My name’s Milt. I work for Crossmark. It’s a retail marketing brokerage and I basically sell candy. It’s a tough occupation for weight loss. And for fun, I like to do woodworking and build furniture.
Why were you looking for help?
It’s an interesting story because I had a friend die; a friend from college. He had a daughter who was a day older than mine. What he died of wasn’t something he had control over, but I realized when he passed away that my wife would probably dig me out of the ground and kill me again if I died because of something that I could control. So that’s what brought me to work with Elect Wellness.
What drew you to Elect Wellness?
I really liked the ability to have options specifically having a dietitian to work with that had you know daily communication and then weekly check-ins just to give me a little bit more accountability.
Tell us about your results so far…
Well, I have lost fifty, fifty-three pounds, fifty-four pounds, somewhere around there, over fifty pounds and losing over fifty pounds is a big deal. I mean that’s, that’s a lot of weight. And I haven’t hit my goal yet. I’m shooting for eighty pounds total. I plan on making it there. My clothes don’t fit anymore so I guess that’s not a good thing, but it’s a, it is a good thing in the end because I need smaller clothes. And you know for nice recognition for a company that Filson actually helped me out with replacing a jacket that I had that I had just gotten before I lost all this weight. So I mean that’s some customer service there. And it was, it was, it was nice to be able to go in and be like, “Hey, I just bought this and now it wraps around me. It doesn’t fit.”
What would you say to others?
I think that you need to take advantage of, of the dietician. Changing your habits completely about the way you eat and the way that you just view food and health is, is key.
Anything else to add in closing?
I’m, I’m just planning on just carrying on what I’ve learned and keeping this weight off. I enjoyed the experience. Every part of it was good. Customer service was good. I think really highly of Brooke. She did a great job with me. And I’ve recommended y’all to my doctor you know ‘cause she asked me what have you done and I told her. And so she you know took down all the information to give to her other clients just because it worked.
