” This past year, I had found myself at heaviest weight I had ever been. I was always tired, my health was declining, my self-esteem was nearly non-existent, and for the first time, I was fearful that I might die young. I knew I had to do something. While surgery seemed the only option, I was told about the Aspen Clinic. I figured what do I have to lose? The morning of my first appointment at the Aspen Clinic was a very emotional one for me. I cried the whole way there. I was angry with myself, I was ashamed of what I did to myself. I was terrified that I would fail at this attempt like all the others. I walked into the Aspen Clinic with defeat already in my heart. When I left the Aspen Clinic, after that first appointment, I walked out feeling different. I walked out with my head held high and confidence that I was going to lose the weight and regain my life back. The staff at the Aspen Clinic were so helpful, encouraging, and informative. They took the time to explain to me what each part of the program included and how it would help me to achieve my weight loss goals. I have been with the Aspen Clinic for over five months now and I have lost over 55 lbs. My self-esteem is back. My health is improving. My overall quality of life has improved drastically. I have not felt this good in years. I still have a lot more weight to lose, but I have no doubt that I will reach my goal weight with the Aspen Clinic and their amazing staff. “
