How it works?
- Assessment and
- Customized Weight
- Maintenance Phase
I have been visiting this office for about six weeks now and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. After spending months on Weight Watchers, I had hit my "plateau" of weight loss, and I was starting to feel hopeless. I had already lost 20 pounds on their plan but was stuck and not losing anymore and not having much luck with what my coaches were advising me to do. I decided it was finally time to seek out real medical help so I can maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
Since my first visit at this office I have seen 20 more pounds come off. I am now just 15 pounds away from my goal weight and definitely have a better understanding of my body and my relationship with food. It has been great seeing the results week after week, even when they are non-scale related. Much of what I have noticed so far includes clothes fitting better, and being able to push myself harder because I have more energy.
Like any good weight loss program, it does take dedication and discipline, but you are provided with a great deal of tools and information to make you successful. Every question I have asked and each hurdle I have come across so far has been addressed quickly and I have been given fantastic advice by Catherine, my councilor. I definitely am going to continue to visit because I know I am going to successfully hit my goal with the plan she has given me!
I cannot give a more positive recommendation to anyone who is seeking weight loss of any type. The difference between dieting and medical weight loss is HUGE. Knowing how your body stores and uses energy (food) can change your life forever. Having people like Catherine and Sally around who care about your success and are encouraging is fantastic. I am thankful I gave this a chance and ended up finding an office like this one!
Having a support system is a key component during weight loss. With weekly weigh-ins I feel I have the support I need to be successful. The staff at GOMWL have been great! Kathleen is very knowledgable and has gone the extra step to help finding answers to some of my difficult weight loss questions. If she doesn't know the answer she will be sure to find it for you and I have really appreciated her following up with me via e-mail.
The office staff have also played an important role to being a great support system. They are always friendly and genuinely care about you. They have been wonderful cheerleaders on this journey, especially Sophia. Sophia always greets you with a smile and always makes sure she congratulates you on your progress. I really do look forward to seeing my extra support system every week at GOMWL. Thank you guys for everything that you do!
Thanks everyone for your time and attention during each one of my visits! I appreciate
each and everyone for all you do! Have a blessed and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
