Jason: I've always had an issue with weight management. I've had a lot of ups and downs over the course of my life. Started off in high school, was a big kid, played football. Got up to about 280 pounds. But then, you know, met my wife, had some kids, and Dad weight packed on a little bit. And I found myself around 320 pounds and tried a lot of different diets, and I got myself down to about 215 pounds. It was tough to maintain.


I met with my doctor, and he introduced me to a medicine, Saxenda. And that was really helpful because part of the issue that I had and was really tough to control was the portions. And Saxenda really helped there.


And around the same time, I was introduced to the CVS Weight Management program. And so I got introduced to Frankie. And it was really helpful because Saxenda winded up not being available. And so I was kind of freaking out because I had made some decent progress. It was about 20 or 30 pounds at the time. And it was approaching a really tough time through the holidays. And she gave me some really good advice about how to continue to maintain portion control.


And now I haven't had the medicine at all since October and about 60 pounds loss overall. So I've managed to double what I've lost without medicine at all. It just felt good to have somebody to talk to, somebody that was encouraging and supportive and really giving me successful tips.
