Wow!  At 85 years old, Les Brooks lost 45 pounds in 4 months with the HMR Program at Milestone.  Great job, Les!  Read his story here...

"In June of 2017, at the age of 85, I was at my maximum weight of 238 pounds and had trouble walking, getting up from a chair and putting my pants on.  I was upset.  My friends and family regarded me as an 85-year-old obese grandpa.  I had chronic arthritis, high blood pressure, loss of energy and self-esteem, what to do?  I needed to come up with a plan to change my way of living.  I made a change by enrolling in the Milestone HMR weight loss program!  It was the right decision. 

It was the right choice with the perfect plan me to lose weight, regain my lost energy, and gain self-esteem.  I had a great weight loss instructor (HMR Health Educator) named Gioia Gibbons, who guided me on the HMR weight loss program.  She motivated me and encouraged progress in me!  My weight loss was steady.  I was never hungry and had difficulty eating all the food.  My blood pressure went down, and I was able to reduce my prescription medicine by 2/3.

I have much more energy now and need a new wardrobe!  I have a new weight loss instructor (HMR Health Educator) named Christina Arnold.  She is also a personal trainer at Milestone and a fantastic motivator.  The class I am is in is filled with people like me and we encourage each other.  I plan to lose 15 more pounds and get to 180.  This is a great program!  Current weight 193 pounds."
