“Over the past 25 years, I’ve been on many diets, ranging from various over-the-counter diet pills to fad diets you see and read about on TV. Sometimes the weight dropped off for a bit, but then it would come back and make itself at home, often with a bit more weight as a gentle reminder that I failed.
“My husband asked me to join him at The Hernried Center, and being at my heaviest at 296 lbs. (compliments of back surgery), I was willing to give it a try. I was a bit nervous and overwhelmed at first, but within a few weeks, everything started to fall into place. Seeing immediate results in the first week alone motivated me to continue.
“Today, I’m at 178 lbs. and I feel great! I’m confident the knowledge I’ve learned over the past year will help me keep the weight off. Tessa, Carmelita and Janine were with me the entire time and were available to answer all my questions and talk through my hang-ups. Christian and Loren helped me through and gave me advice on exercise and how to keep my back safe from injury.
“The Hernried Center is a no-judgment zone. The behavioral health educators and exercise physiologists are there for you and will help you get back on track if unexpected life and work events happen. Joining the program was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
