Doctors' Weight Management Program Patient, Bob Smagula

What motivated you to join the program?

When I tipped the scale at 335 pounds on my 67th birthday, it jolted me into action. My blood pressure was high and my doctor urged me to consider the Sansum Doctors’ Weight Management Program

What do you like about the program?

The Sansum staff on all levels guided me to success: the health educators were terrific as well as the doctors, nurses, and support staff. The food is quite good as well.

How has the program helped you lose weight?

The weekly weigh-ins and class provided the structure and accountability I needed. Classmates were encouraging to each other throughout Phase 1. Now I’m in Phase 2 to maintain the loss while practicing new weight control skills.
