Anthony’s Story

When I entered the Innovative Vitality program in August 2023, I weighed 344lb and had recently become Type 2 diabetic. I have now reached my goal weight of 195lb, my A1C has fallen to a healthy 4.7 and I am building muscle. 

This journey has been incredible. I’ve been overweight most of my adult life, and while I had some success losing weight on my own through various programs and diets, nothing lasted long-term. From the start, I knew this time was going to be different, because it wasn’t just about a number on the scale. Through the coaching and education provided by Meredith Villareal, NP, I’ve learned how to keep my blood sugar in a healthy range and to balance my macronutrients to ensure proper nutrition to support my long-term goals. I started walking 3-6 miles every day, and I hit the gym a few times a week. I have more energy and I’m more confident and comfortable in my body, and have received so many compliments from friends, family, and co-workers.

While I’m now at my ideal body weight, my health journey is not over. I am continuing to work on strength training, protein intake, and focusing on maintaining my healthy habits. One of the things that sets Innovative Vitality apart from other weight loss programs is the data and coaching. The accountability provided by the blood glucose monitoring and the monthly InBody scans were key to my success, along with regular coaching visits with Meredith. I am so grateful I found Innovative Vitality, and I feel amazing!
