"I have struggled with my weight for nearly 40 years. I've attempted quite a few different diet and weight loss programs with no success. Then my wife told me about the Healthy Weight Program at UnityPoint Health – Meriter. I was reluctant to dive in at first, but when I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolism, a life-threatening condition, I knew I had to dig deep and change my life for good. I started the program 14 months ago and I've lost nearly 200 pounds! The support, tools and care I receive from the healthy weight team has been absolutely amazing. I literally owe my life to the Healthy Weight Program. I could not be happier."
