“I entered “LifeStyle 180” in February 2010, less than a year after back surgery. While meeting with my primary care physician several months after the surgery and expressing how fortunate I was with a great surgical outcome, we both agreed that at age 62 I was not on a good health path - overweight, slightly hypertensive, and in poor physical shape. She told me about a startup program at the Cleveland Clinic called “LifeStyle 180.” At age 62, I certainly thought I knew enough about proper diet and exercise, but after attending an introductory lecture I determined that the program was a perfect fit for me. It started to become clear how little I really did know about taking good care of my body.
The program has clearly been a life changing experience for me. Not only have I learned how to shop and prepare food properly, but I have also benefited from the yoga, exercise and mind/body portions of this life-changing program.
I have lost and kept off approximately 40 pounds and I am healthier and stronger than I can ever remember as an adult. Clearly, the program has been a challenge for me. I feel like I am constantly fighting against the many factors in our environment and society that can keep me from succeeding. However, through ongoing classes on healthy eating, exercise and a mental awareness and support on what is good for me I continue to stay engaged. For me, this comprehensive “whole body” program, “LifeStyle 180,” has done exactly what the name infers, created a complete 180 degree turn around in my health.”
“Lifestyle 180 has helped me make the changes I have been trying to grasp for years! It is such a well-balanced program that puts healthy living in perspective one challenge at a time.
I have tried for years to get my weight and activity levels under control, this program opens the door and welcomes you in to start a new journey of healthy living. I never realized how for me personally stress was a stumbling block preventing me from making the necessary changes to live a healthy lifestyle. The stress management along with the yoga made a huge impact on me making positive changes to my day to day living needed to succeed and overcome my lifestyle demons.
I started the 12 week journey September 2012 and have continued on the healthy path ever since, it is not a diet it is forever.
Thanks to the Lifestyle program I have been able to lose 30 + pounds and feel wonderful, I am blessed not to have any major health issues and now am living a preventable lifestyle.
I am very grateful to Dr. Golubic who is one of the most caring, encouraging, down to earth professionals I have ever meet. Our conversations were like talking to an old friend, I always walked away encouraged and empowered with new tools to live a healthy life. I also enjoyed and would like to thank the entire staff who were incredible.
I look forward to attending lifestyle events in the future to help me continue my journey and will not hesitate to ask for help if I stumble.”
