Christchurch Man's Incredible 23kg Weight Loss: Thanks Kaiapoi Doctor For "Changing His Life"
After being left “disappointed” at not being able to lose weight for over 20 years, Tony from Christchurch, claims his life has been changed by Dr Jonie Girouard, a registered weight management doctor based in Silverstream, Kaiapoi.
Tony, has tried to control his weight for 20 plus years.
“I’ve just about tried everything. I mean really everything. I would’ve spent thousands over the years.”
“I tried high carb pre-made meals, calorie counting, hypnotherapy and all number of fad diets. A few of them worked for a bit but the results would never last and the weight came back on again. I was pretty disappointed by that.”
“My knees and hips got so painful from the weight that I couldn’t walk up the stairs to get inside.”
“I was tired all the time. Once I sat down on the couch for the evening that was it. I was there for the night.”
“When my wife Elaine told me I had an appointment with Dr Jonie I thought, ‘Here we bloody go again…’”
“Another plate, another diet, another lot of rules to stick with.”
“When we got there, Dr Jonie did a number of tests, asked some questions about my lifestyle, looked at my medications and ran some quick tests.”
“Other doctors said I needed to get my weight down to 90Kg but Dr Jonie said, “That’s not quite right. You’ll be losing muscle weight.”
“Jonie explained that some have more muscle and carry more muscle weight.”
“When I was younger I wasn’t skinny. I had huge forearms, did a lot of swimming, played a lot of rugby, all those sorts of things.”
“She looked at my medications and through the different results and said ‘I think we can help you.’”
“It was the best Tuesday ever. She actually GOT what we had been fighting for 20 years.”
“We discussed a few simple diet changes that I was comfortable with. Really easy things that I could manage at the time. I was still allowed to eat plenty. There was no radical diet like all the other programmes I had failed on.”
“It was a breath of fresh air. Dr Jonie genuinely cared and treated me with respect and it felt like she wanted to work with me and work in with my lifestyle to help me get my weight under control.”
“It was the first time someone said they can work with me rather than me having to change my entire life for their diet.”
Tony’s wife shared, “From the first week Tony began to notice a difference to his weight. He just stopped being hungry. What ever Dr Jonie had given him it was working. Tony was even the one getting up off the couch to make the cups of tea – something he’d not done in years!”
“Every minute of every day I was hungry, food was all I’d think about,” Tony explained.
“Ever since I started working with Dr Jonie, I have not been hungry.”
“Imagine having a rash all over, itching like crazy all day, driving you mad. That was my hunger. Now imagine someone putting a cream on and it goes away. That was what Dr Jonie did for my hunger. It just disappeared and I was free.”
Tony spoke with true conviction for the interview, often repeating, “It’s truly changed my life.”
“I’ve got diabetes and have gone down from 120 units of insulin per day to only 8 units every second day and I believe I’ll be able to come right off it in the next few months.”
“My knees and hips are feeling better. I have more energy. I feel amazing.”
“Two people from work are already going. I’ll tell anyone who listens about Dr Jonie and what she’s done.”
“If you’re looking for help with weight go to Dr Jonie. Just have one appointment and see what she’s like. There’s no hurdles, no radical diets, it’s just easy.”
