HLM_2018_Q4_sq_Karen

I was overweight, diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and my quality of life was low and only getting lower. I never knew how to get my health under control and needed more support than my primary care provider could give me.

In early 2016, I visited Sherri Jubay, PA, at HealthWorks. She changed my life. By this time, I was horribly depressed and hopeless. Sherri listened to my problems, heard my cry for help, and was there for me when no one else was. I am forever grateful for that.

I was on the verge of several major health issues and Sherri taught me how to approach my health differently. She put me back on my thyroid medication and found me a primary care provider who could better care for my conditions.

I’ve since lost 200 pounds! The extra weight I carried gave me debilitating knee pain. When I started losing weight, I qualified for knee replacement and I was thrilled. Then I continued to lose weight, reduced my paint to a manageable level, and now I’ve chosen to postpone surgery.

I’m finally happy again. I’ve checked so many things off my bucket list! I traveled to Europe for the first time because I didn’t have to purchase two seats. I went zip lining, horseback riding, and rode rollercoasters for the first time in over 25 years. I don’t miss out on anything anymore because I can’t fit, am in too much pain, too tired, or too embarrassed.
