My name is Jonathon, and I am the director of the 2 Columbus, OH Physicians Weight Loss Centers. I wanted to start this blog to help bring important health knowledge, tips, tricks, and inspiration to all of our clients, as well as others who are seeking to live healthier lives! But first, I thought it would be important to introduce myself a little.
I currently live in Columbus with my beautiful wife Sarah and our Goldendoodle Paisley:
We both have a good understanding of the importance of health and how difficult weight loss can be. Between the 2 of us, we have lost almost 200 lbs! So when I meet with clients, I truly can relate to the struggles and hardships, because I have gone through them myself. In fact, that's what led me to joining Physicians Weight Loss Centers. I knew I wanted to help people, and this seemed like a great company to make that happen!
I joined the PWLC franchise in 2017. At the time, I had been looking for a career that would serve others and improve lives. When I came across the opportunity to join PWLC, I immediately thought it would be a good fit. I knew it was an area where I could make a difference for others. And upon researching the company and becoming familiar with its products and services, I could tell that what they did was high quality. The programs are safe and effective at not just helping people to lose weight, but also to teach the skills and discipline that it takes to make healthy choices the rest of your life! The products taste great, and genuinely deliver results. I could tell quickly it was the kind of stuff I'd be willing to put my name on.
In my time helping clients achieve their weight loss goals, I have learned so much and grown in ways I never expected. I knew helping people is always rewarding, but I never knew how much joy I would get from seeing the transformations our clients go through. It is truly a blessing for me to see clients who come in for their first appointment feeling so defeated and scared transform into healthy, happy individuals. It is wonderful to get reports of pain going away, health fears being reduced or removed entirely, or simply having more energy and feeling more comfortable with themselves.
I do this because I truly believe that being a healthy weight can make a world of difference in your life. It has in mine. It has in my wife's. It has in every client, past or present, who I've spoken with. I know how scary taking that first real step towards change can be. I know how easy it is to make excuses and to put off what I know I need to do. But I also know how great it is when you finally get past that first step. And how awesome it feels to reach your final goal!
If you have been thinking about taking control of your health, I encourage you to start today. Time only makes it harder. If you need help, don't be ashamed to reach out for it, whether it is a weight loss center such as PWLC, or even just a friend or family member. We all need help to accomplish big goals. Plus, it becomes so much easier when you have the support of others to lean on. And no matter what, I wish you the best in your journey!
