Jim Mange, Office Manager

James Mange is the office manager at Kitsap Medical Weight Loss.

Jim MangeJames Mange is the office manager at Kitsap Medical Weight Loss. Much of Jim’s life has been spent studying the function and movement of the human body. He’s a true kinesiology geek. Jim coached 27 seasons of high school sports (swimming, track and field, baseball and volleyball) and has been honored with coaching awards in swimming and track. He has also been a licensed massage therapist for several years.

Personally, Jim is in his 49th year of competitive swimming, and has been a record holder at the high school and college level, and has won dozens of state titles in Master’s Swimming. He also currently holds several state records in Senior Games.

“I thought I knew a lot about nutrition and performance,” Jim says, “but I really didn’t know anything until Ellen started studying medical weight loss.”

Jim is now 35 pounds lighter than any weight he could achieve through exhausting workouts and trying to starve himself. “Barring surgical intervention, I never thought I’d see the underside of 200 again” he says. Being married to the doctor certainly hasn’t hurt, but Jim has kept the weight off for well over a year now, and he’s a true believer.

“I love greeting patients as they come in, because most of the time I see less of them at every visit.

In under a year and a half, we’ve had patients lose over 4,600 pounds, and the number is climbing faster and faster as we add new patients to the practice.” Jim also notes that many patients are going off medications for other physical complaints as they get healthier. “Blood pressures are going down, cholesterol numbers are improving, and patients are able to go off their insulin. We even had one patient who, because of weight loss, was finally able to get pregnant after trying for 10 years! “I love what we do here,” he says. “This is the best kind of medicine we could ever offer.”

We’ve all been on diets and all failed. Well, this time Skip and I desperately needed help to overcome my limited mobility due to back surgery that didn’t go as expected. Kitsap Medical Weight Loss ISN'T a diet. It’s a life style change that has been the most positive thing to happen to us in years, and years. We learned what our worst enemy is when eating… CARBOHYDRATES. After 5 months we’ve both lost over 35 pounds and have learned we eat to live, not live to eat. Dr. Ellen and her staff have been incredible. The first month was very difficult but we learned what we could and couldn’t eat and received lots of positive support suggestions and recipes to try. And we don’t even miss potatoes, pasta or French fries any more. For the first time for as long as I can remember I can see my toes. Some visceral fat disappears in the first two weeks. It gives you more incentive to keep going. I am more mobile and stand up straighter and walk better. GIVE IT A TRY. You won’t be disappointed.*
