Diet.com is filled with members who are on the right path because of the support and encouragement you all provide to each other. Here is another great story we found among our Diet.com users.

Member Name: wanttodo

Her Favorite Type of Exercise: “Walking and jogging in the house. I also like to use the resistance machines at the gym, when I can go.”

Her Diet Tips: “There has to be eating and behavior modifications to keep going. You have to be highly motivated and get a group of people to help you stay motivated. Diet.com has provided that group of people, and they are absolutely great!! The eating and behavior modifications are a work in progress, always will be and it takes a while to wrap your mind around that.”

What Keeps Her Motivated: “People at Diet.com and now I am using a book called Beck Diet solution weight loss workbook to further that effort by helping me with the behavior modification. I have been overweight by over 50-75 lbs my whole life. I gained more weight this past year and my desire to get back to my ‘normal’ self is really important to me. I thank God for this website because some friends here have really helped me to stay motivated and not give up.”

Her key to success: “Key is staying motivated enough to change and then working real hard to change. How badly do you want to lose weight? That is a key question to help change.”

How Diet.com has helped her: “Some people here became real friends . I think that has surprised me more than anything else. The realization that your friends in here REALLY REALLY do care makes a huge difference. Diet.com has enabled everyone to upload their picture so I know what they look like. The boards and groups also provide another level of support because there are always suggestions and ideas in them. The buddies group also help because some of these guys become REAL friends and recommend books and programs. The upgrade on this website gave me insight on my personality. Boy that was an eye opener. And I am glad I did upgrade because it made me realize how this site stands off from the rest. Dr. Diet and Shauna (the dietician) actually respond to questions.”

How She Motivates Us: Judy has just recently upgraded to a premium member, and has been finding a ton of success with her new program! She’s been utilizing her expert resources and posing some excellent health and nutrition questions to Dr. Diet and our Registered Dietician Shauna Schultz. The more she learns, the more she knows – the more successful and healthy her future is looking!

Inspiring Post: “I love this website and everyone in here. Tomorrow is a new day with new beginnings, whether today was great or terrible. Tomorrow we all start a new slate.”
