For many people, losing weight is at the top of their bucket list. For others, it is the only way to become, and feel healthy again. Many of us have tried yo-yo diets, or buy the expensive celebrity promoted trends, that pop up in social media and TV and radio commercial hype. The failed weight loss remains, and people continue to be discouraged. 
However, Medical Weight Loss, LLC at (813) 269-SLIM has been proving since 2007 that weight loss, whether 10 pounds or 120 pounds, can be done safely, affordably and successfully!  Many different diseases, such as diabetes, auto-immune and thyroid problems and heart disease, are linked to being overweight. Knee and hip problems are also factors in this area. We know about these things. Weight loss is not just a matter of looking good, but, is a medical program of improving your life and reducing your health risks. Feeling better, is also a great by-product of slimming down. 

Dr. Gail Jachimek

Medical Weight Loss, LLC (269- SLIM), opened in 2007, and is headed by Dr. Gail Jachimek. The main clinic is located at 5111 Ehrlich Road. Their other weight loss clinics are in Wesley Chapel, FL., Lake Geneva, and Waukesha, Wisconsin. Their prices have not increased since they began the medical weight loss practice.   Dr. Jachimek and her husband are both Chiropractic physicians, and have those clinics here and in Spring Hill.  So, they also treat patients that are in pain from accident injuries, and have every day neck or back pain!

Their medical weight loss program combines pharmaceutical appetite suppressant medication, fat burning injections and pills, and a clinically proven diet with medical doctor and nursing support and counseling to help their patients reach their “target” weight goals. 
This physician supervised program helps those who have before tried and failed to lose unwanted pounds. Dr. Gail says, “We opened the clinic because I was entering menopause and gaining weight. When I asked my primary physician, as well as my doctor friends, for help, I got extremely rude responses. I was told to “push away from the table”.   Dr. Gail does not want her patients to go through the same degrading experience. 
At the time, Dr. Gail was living on chicken and salad, and practicing level 3 kickboxing. She says, “I had been thin as a young woman, so I also assumed that anyone overweight deserved to be overweight because they were ‘eating chips in front of the television,’ etc.”   When the unexplained weight gain happened to her, she was then convinced that other factors were involved. She wanted an answer. 
Determined to learn more, Dr. Jachimek joined the ASBP (American Society of Bariatric Physicians) and went to their symposiums for further education and tools. She discovered that there are many contributing factors to weight gain – not just your diet. 
Some of the major contributing factors included hormonal imbalances, thyroid issues, environmental toxins, autoimmune disease, type 2 diabetes, etc.  It was then that she opened the main clinic in Tampa to help people dealing with the same frustrating weight gain frustration she had faced. They have since opened 3 more clinics in Florida and Wisconsin. 
“At Medical Weight Loss, LLC, we have medical doctors, as well as nurse practitioners, that have been treating our patients successfully for years, so that the root cause of these problems can be addressed. Our registered nurses and supportive staff are there for you to help you every step of the way.” 
Medical weight loss plans are not new, and many are similar, but those programs usually involve significant upcharges and hidden fees.  Dr. Jachimek’s 269-SLIM program is different.  Her program is focused on the long-term results, meaning, not only will the process safely take off your weight during the active phase of the program, but also prevent the pounds from returning during the “maintenance phase”…(which is free)! 
This is no diet trend – This is looking at your medical history, evaluating your EKG, bloodwork and lifestyle. Then, their doctors propose a plan for you, and prescribe appropriate pharmaceutical appetite suppressant medication, fat burning injections, vitamin therapy and fat burning supplements. 
“The program is simple, inexpensive and easy to follow. We give you a large list of foods to buy/choose from,” says Dr. Jachimek. “The program is easy, because it is food bought in the grocery store, (no special foods to order) just regular meats, fruits and vegetables on our list. This factor also makes it more affordable, because you don’t have to buy special foods, or cook separate dinners if you have a family.” 

Under the supervision of their medical doctors, patients can drop 20 to 30 pounds in the first month. Dr. Jachimek said that it is common to see 5-10 pounds dropped in the first week.  “We have had patients that have lost 17 pounds in their first week, as well as patients that have lost over a hundred pounds on our program”, says Dr. Jachimek. 
Accountability is also a major part of the program. Keeping the patients safe and on track, their nurses evaluate, and treat patients weekly to provide support and give suggestions on how to reach and maintain their target weight. 
Dr. Jachimek stresses that there are no price surprises at Medical Weight Loss, 269-SLIM. The initial visit is $195 and weekly visits are just $55.  That’s it!  This is what you have been waiting for! An inexpensive, easy and successful way to lose the unwanted pounds that have made you miserable for years.
As their slogans say, “With 269- SLIM (MEDICALWEIGHTLOSSLLC.COM) there are no hidden fees…just pounds gone”…or “Weigh less for WAY less”…or “When you’re done fooling around, call us!”.
