Success Through Weight Motivation

Success Through Weight Motivation

Being on a diet can be scary and confusing, which is why bistroMD prides itself on offering you success in small paces. Most people have the misconception that a diet is supposed to be quick and hasty without a planned-out schedule. We provide you with a schedule that is healthy, convenient, and aimed toward getting you the best results possible. Here are just some of the many people who have benefited from our weight motivation:

Marianne’s Story:

"I have been on the program since New Year’s Day, and I am loving it. I have lost 7 pounds. I love being on the program and I am astounded at how much I love having no say in what I eat. What a relief to not have to think about what to buy and find time to prepare it. A lot of time (and money) was spent on fast food bought on the way home from work when I realized I hadn’t prepared anything earlier. I also find that on my two days “off,” I am eating a lot less than I used to. I can instantly taste the fat in foods that I used to consume without thinking, and I find I don’t want to eat much of it. Though I realize I can’t be on the program forever, I WILL stay on it until I reach my goal, and that is 28 pounds away. I have also been exercising 3-4 times a week since beginning the program, and that has gone a long way to making me feel like I’m going to succeed. Though I put on a bit of muscle, I feel strong and like I’m just itching to move, and it’s such a good, healthy feeling. I don’t want to just lose size, I want to have a lean, firm shape, so it just makes sense to exercise along with the program. The great snacks keep me going, so I never feel too weak to exercise. All in all, I am enjoying the program and filled with hope that for the first time in my 65 years, I will achieve and keep my goal weight. Thank you for designing a program that is really easy to continue!"

Sonia’s Story:

"I have tried it all – Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, South Beach. I am borderline diabetic and am on medication. I’m tipping the scales at over 210 pounds and am only 5'4?. You would think this would scare the heck out of me and motivate me to action, but here I am still stuck in the mire. Like some of the others who have posted, it’s hard for me to believe that this is going to be the time that I stick to something and allow it to work. But I still have hope. My first shipment arrives next week and like Pam, I am looking forward to going on a diet! I just know that if I can have a catalyst, see some movement and feel better, I have my weight motivation to keep going. Thanks everyone for posting your hopes and your successes – it really helps."
