Overcoming Infertility with Weight Management

“I was tired of feeling like garbage every day and having no motivation to do anything”

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 10% of American women (6.1 million) have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant. Sometimes uncontrollable factors affect fertility, but being the healthiest version of yourself can also help you start a family.

Meet Trisha, one of our Weight Management patients. Her journey will amaze you!

“I was seeing Dr. Naylor for infertility treatments because my husband and I had been trying to start a family for 5 years,” Trisha explained. “I tried Clomid for a couple months with no ovulation success so Dr. Naylor mentioned Weight Management at The Group so I decided to make an appointment and give it a try.”

When Trisha began the program, she was the heaviest she’d ever been.

“I was tired of feeling like garbage every day and having no motivation to do anything,” she said. “I was tired of being on a high dose of 2 different insulins and an oral medication for my Type 2 diabetes.”

In the first 3 weeks of the program, Trisha started to see a difference.

“I had energy and was getting ‘me’ back,” she beamed. “In 6 months of the program, I had lost almost 50 pounds and I was working out more than ever. My goal was to get healthy and not have to take insulin anymore and I was able to achieve that.”

The best part?

“At the end of my sixth month I found out I was pregnant!” Trisha said. “I never thought it was possible but it was!”

Weight Management at The Group taught Trisha how to have a healthy relationship with food and how to exercise at a slow pace.

Her advice for someone considering Weight Management at The Group?

“Go for it!” she said. “I have told my story to so many people. It can work for them like it did for me.”

For now, Trisha is busy taking care of her health and the health of her baby. She says she can’t wait to get back to her Weight Management team after her much anticipated delivery.
