Quick Weight Loss Center
Hi my name is Steve Cipparito and
I would like to share with you my weight loss success story.
Before I dive into my personal story, I want you to know that I
am not a doctor or a nutritionist. I am your average
"Joe". Most of what I learned was from reading books about
weight loss, talking to people that lost weight, watching TV and
doing research on internet web sites for weight loss programs.
I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I am very happy with the
end result and my life has changed drastically for the better.
I was not an
overweight child for the first eight years of my life. I
was actually pretty skinny, but this all changed when I went to
a local day camp at the age of nine. That summer I was
known for being able to "out-eat" anybody. This included
almost eating a pie of pizza by myself. For a nine year
old, this was no small feat. I would eat donuts, cookies,
ice cream and anything I could get my hands one. By the
time the summer was over I could no longer fit into my clothes
anymore. I entered school that fall as a different kid.
Some of my friends didn't recognize me. I gained over 25
Not much changed for me over the
next several years. My eating habits only grew. I
tried a few weight loss diets, but drinking chocolate shakes was
not what I considered a "meal". My parents were going to
send me to weight loss camp, but I refused to go. More of
anything, I was afraid I would starve there. My mom said
it is a "healthy weight loss" program. I would have
nothing of it.
In high school, I was 5'11 and
weighed close to 250 pounds. I was a good student, but had
trouble dating and was often picked on by older kids.
Luckily my sense of humor was what kept me going along with my friends business I helped him with.
I'll never forget the day my life
changed. I was at my locker getting books for my next
class and two girls came over to me and asked me if they could
ask me a question. I turned beet red from embarrassment
and said "yes" eagerly. The one girl looked at me very
seriously and said quite loudly - "WHY ARE YOU SO FAT??!?!"
She laughed and ran down the hall. I was so upset with my
weight problem. I slammed my locker shut and decided TODAY
is the day I am changing my life and am going to lose the weight
