"I started my weight loss journey in early January 2017, like I do every January. Ive struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. I had been at Disney with my family over Christmas for the trip of a lifetime. The pictures that were taken made me so sad about my appearance. I was embarrassed that I had to check which rides I might not be able to ride due to my weight...I check in with this group of dedicated women daily. I have made friends in this group. I find accountability refreshing and the camaraderie a blessing. I have been part groups related to weight...I've not found another group of people who are so helpful, so kind, and such a great resource for weight loss. I'm down 99lbs in just over 9 months, and for the first time in my life, I feel confident I will meet my goal. I feel in control of my eating. I 'm wearing sizes I haven't seen since high school. Success and accountability have been a winning combination for me, and the physician women in this group are a big part of that!

"From info to inspiration- this group of amazing ladies has helped me to lose 30 lbs. Now, stuck in the dreaded "plateau" phase, I am encouraged on- to at least maintain, and with a plan to make this the week I bust through! I have made such huge changes to my family's eating habits from what I have learned here. This is also my best resource for recommendations- recipes, where to shop, recs for eating out, inspirational and educational podcasts (as it turns out, I eat better when I keep a healthy eating podcast in the rotation every 1-2 days), ninja workout ideas...Basically, love this group, love what it does for my health and for my family's health. On to the next 20 lbs!"

"This group has helped me lose 27 lbs and maintain this weight loss for the past 6 months! I have a more mindful eating process which has helped me maintain compared to doing a fad diet, losing fast but regaining fast."
-Heather MD, Pediatrics
"The vast amount of different information has been super helpful for me in my own weight loss goals. Most importantly, I have learned great information that I can pass along to patients."
-AS DO, Family Medicine
"It is unique to be part of a group of intelligent women with similar lifestyle challenges, who critically think through and question nutrition recommendations, but can provide meaningful support and suggestions."
