I have been a participant in the Mind Body Plate program since February 2018. At 46 I had struggled with obesity, PCOS and Diabetes most of my life and while I always thought I knew what I was supposed to do to make a change, eat less and exercise more, but somehow that just never really worked for me.
After failing at almost every diet out there for the last 30 years, I can honestly say I had hit rock bottom and was desperate to do whatever I needed to so I could be the person I knew I was meant to be. Finding Mind Body Plate has significantly changed my life for the better.
As of today I have lost almost 70 pounds, have been able to reduce my medications (including those for Diabetes) and have had labs come back in the normal range, which has never happened to me before. As a part of getting healthier I not only have more confidence but for the first time, my body feels strong. I know that I will never go back to my old way of thinking or eating, thanks to what I’ve learned through Mind Body Plate.
The personal support I’ve received from the professionals who facilitate the weekly meetings has been integral to my success, as well as the continued communication in between meetings. But equally important has been the camaraderie I’ve found with my peers. No one truly understands the challenges and struggles we face as overweight people other than those experiencing the same thing. We are there for each other to talk through those ups and downs, cheering each other on like no one else can.
Mind Body Plate has helped me to find a lifestyle, not a diet, which is tailored specifically for me and for which I am truly grateful.

I am a 70 year old female that has had a weight problem most of my life. I am 5’ tall and have been over 200 pounds for the last 20 years. Dieting on and off never showed any decent weight loss. Was on most of the popular diets to no avail. Until now. Mind, body plate just clicked. And in a little over 3 months i am down 28 pounds and below the 200 mark. My doctor is thrilled and I am off of blood pressure meds for the first time in 15 years. This is just the beginning.
Thank you, A
