This is the first step in improving your health and lifestyle.

I'm ready to get started now.

"I am 34 years old and I have been struggling with my weight my entire life. Doctors have pointed out that I'm overweight; nutritionists have told me I'm overweight because my family is overweight, and other healthcare professionals have put me in a class on how to lower cholesterol, not lose weight. I have tried almost everything to lose weight and it would work for a little bit and then I would gain it right back with interest.

"When I met Dr. Gaglione I knew things would be different. She is very upbeat and positive and you cannot help but get excited! I was very excited to hear we could do this without surgery and I knew she would be with me through it all.

"She was very thorough in reviewing my case, even asking about family history. She did not ask what I was doing but focused more on what I needed to do. For me it is about structure and she gave me that from the beginning.

"She designed a plan that I can live with and work into a new lifestyle, not just a quick fix. I lost a total of 64 pounds in nine months, and we are now working on maintaining where I am.

"I enjoy working with her because she helps you find new ways of doing things. Nothing gets boring or routine. She works with the individual and plans the program to the individual's needs and that is what I love."
