I had to absolutely get my colesterol levels down and I didn’t want to go on medication. I look you guys up, and you were covered by my insurance, which was great news. At the same time I started working towards my weight loss goals, so I thought maybe if they are helping with my colesterol at the same time I can get some assistant with loosing a couple of pounds.
I dieted for two years on more or less 1,800 calories a day, and finally managed to lose the twenty pounds I’d gained but I was hungry the entire time! In the next ten years the pounds slowly climbed back on while my special-needs twins’ became my #1 priority. Eight years later, while at my doctors office being treated for Fibromayalgia I realized I was the highest weight I had ever been! I am 5’ 4” tall and I had hit 162 lbs. I was frustrated, I had been putting my kids first, but not thinking about my own wellbeing. I also realized that if I was unhealthy, both in body and in mind – I was not being the best possible parent I could be and wanted to achieve health for life and pass on a legacy of good health and habits for my children to follow.
Now, I can fit in my old clothes again, which was a really big deal. In fact, I can’t believe how loose my clothes fit.
Our introduction to Take Shape for Life has been truly outstanding! My wife Carol watched me lose 40 pounds in three months. She had also witnessed my significant change over the past year on maintaining a maintenance program with outstanding success. This success has provided increased energy, and what is more important, it has greatly reduced my medication intake. This is significant in that I was diagnosed with diabetes years back. Carol, seeing the tremendous success and ease decided to join the Take Shape for Life program and lost over 35 pounds with similar results. Both Carol and I are extremely thankful for Take Shape for Life, and especially having Kelly as our health coach for always keeping us on track!
I had a great consultation with Samantha. She was very polite, asked great questions, and seem to really care about my personal journey. I felt very relaxed and eased, not judged at all. This has given me a new lease of life through nutrition. Can’t wait for my next session.
Got FSA funds to burn? I learned about @NuWeights from another busy professional, who wanted to make a change. I work with Genevieve and I can’t sing her praises enough. Proper eating is not just about weight loss. I’m a pescetarian and I learned I had been getting half of the protein I needed. Made that small change, I started getting toner and having better skin & hair. Conveniently located throughout the DC area, they work to solve your weight loss and health mysteries. Their services are often covered by insurance and FSA. Why not treat yourself?
I met with Genevieve this morning (on G Street) and had a great experience. She was very friendly, flexible, professional and helpful. She had a lot of great ideas as to how I could improve my diet and did an excellent job of working with my preferences. I definitely recommend!
My husband and I saw Christine. We loved her. I think people are looking for a miracle and to be told something spectacular. She’s a nutritionist! Her job is to teach you how to eat a balanced meal, how many calories, carbs, etc. Can you do this on your own or by looking on the internet? Yes. But apparantly ppl haven’t. Her job is to tell you what how to put together a decent meal, what’s beneficial and not, and have you check in for accountability.
have always had a good experience with the behavioral health services provided by this group. They accept my insurance, the practitioners are qualified, and I have never had any problems with scheduling, billing, customer service, etc. I have also been treated well during the current Coronavirus pandemic. Cannot comment on the nutrition services as I have not used them.
