Playing How Supermom Recently Lost 64 Pounds!

The Doctors are happy to shine the spotlight on mom Cindy for her incredible selflessness and to share how she recently made the choice to prioritize her health.

Cindy raised 3 kids and her daughters call her a "super mom" and say she is always taking care of everyone else. They say their mom has always led by example and showed their family the importance of being patient and kind and now they want their mom to have time to focus on her well-being.

When she learned her health was declining (she was experiencing issues with her blood pressure, kidneys, thyroid, and heart), Cindy began a weight loss journey. She had bariatric sleeve surgery and is happy to share she has recovered and has lost 64 pounds so far.

"I feel much healthier, she says, telling us she is happy to know her health will not get in the way of caring for her son who has autism, and her great nephew who has special needs.

Weight loss expert Dr. Mike Moreno, who hosts the Wellness Inc. podcast, joins to share tips that can help Cindy and anyone on a weight loss journey. He says "mindfulness and motivation" are key.

"Think about everything you're going to do before you do it," he says, explaining this might apply to what you eat, what you order at a restaurant if you're going to exercise.

He says to ask yourself, "Why do I want to be healthy? Why do I want to make the right choice?" noting the answer will be different for each person but stresses you need to give yourself time to think about the question and truly answer it. Dr. Moreno says eventually this approach will help you learn how to make the best decision in the moment without too much thought needed. 

Also, Dr. Mike invites Cindy to join his weight loss group. Plus, find out the surprise we have for this super mom from our friends at Intercontinental Cleveland Hotel and Sittercity, in the video below.
