At the time I started I weighed 239 pounds. I have battled weight my entire life. Due to my Diabetes and heart disease, we had to customize my plan. I am happy to say I now weigh 195 pounds. I cannot say enough good things about the program and the staff that helped me achieve and surpass the goals that I set. The help and encouragement was invaluable. Everyone has always been cheerful and supportive. I think that not wanting to disappoint the staff at Midwest Weight Control played a big part in my weight loss program. Now I am going into the maintenance part of my program. I am looking forward to this phase and not gaining my weight back. Once again, thank you to all the great people at Midwest Weight Control.
