1. How did you hear about Welldatrix?
I heard about the weight loss program from Dr. Louise Murphy, CEO and President of ClinDatrix, Inc. Dr. Murphy thought very highly of the program ( i.e., the benefits and advantages over other programs offered, the success rate, etc.). It seemed like a well-thought out program, with all the components needed to ensure weight loss success.
2. How long have you been enrolled in the program?
I enrolled in the program at the beginning of October 2011.
3. Why did you decide this was the right plan for you?
I wasn’t having success in losing weight on my own, and it was becoming increasingly frustrating. Even though I thought I was knowledgeable about making good food choices as opposed to bad food choices, it didn’t seem to make a difference on the scale. After learning more about what the program at WellDatrix included, it seemed like a good plan.
4. What is your favorite part of the program?
I would say the camaraderie of both the participants, and the expert staff that are part of your program support system (behaviorist, dietician, and exercise specialist), are a definite plus. What makes the program unique is that it covers all the bases to not only help you lose weight, but it also gives you the tools needed to assess your past habits, learn how to implement new habits, and the ability to make long term life style changes.
5. How important has it been to have the support of your family during this process?
It’s definitely helpful to have the support of your family and friends, but I also feel it’s your own journey. If you lack that kind of support, you shouldn’t let it get in the way of meeting your personal goals. Your WellDatrix team is there to help you along the way, no matter what!
6. Have you met your target weight?
Yes. At the onset of the program, a weight loss analysis is provided for each participant. Based on various criteria, several weight ranges are identified: Just acceptable, Acceptable, Fit, and Very Fit. Each participant works with the dietician to determine a healthy weight range they are comfortable with. I personally targeted the “Very Fit” category, and I’m almost there!
7. Has losing weight and changing the way you look at food changed your life?
Absolutely. There’s not a better feeling than the confidence you have in yourself when you’ve reached a place you are proud of.
I had a vision of what I wanted for myself and the improvements I wanted to make about myself. I think the term “re-invent” is applicable in my case. As a middle-aged female, I was at that point where I thought “it’s now or never” to make a change, and still have time to enjoy it!!!! For me, I knew that the first step was to get my weight back on track. There was definitely a strong desire to “look good”, but I was also creeping into that “unhealthy” area (pre-diabetes, elevated blood pressure, etc.)
8. Now that you have lost the weight and feel better about the way you look are there areas in your life you are changing as a direct result of losing weight with the Welldatrix plan?
Once again, absolutely. I’m no longer in the gray area with health issues, and the confidence I now have about myself has allowed me to pursue other interests (i.e., jewelry business, back to being more socially involved, getting back into a gym routine and the exercise classes I enjoyed, etc.). I believe the first step toward self-improvement is getting your weight to a healthy spot, and the rest of what you want to accomplish will follow.
9. What would you say was the most difficult part of this process?
What I initially thought would be the most difficult aspect of the program turned out to be the easiest part of the weight loss process. Although there is variety, I wasn’t sure about having just meal replacement packets as my only source of nourishment on the very low calorie diet program. I soon discovered that the meal replacements (shakes and bars) were actually very filling, tasted good, and overall very satisfying. Another bonus was the extra time I had, since cooking and grocery shopping no longer took time out of my busy day.
10. Would you recommend this program?
I would definitely recommend this program to others who want to lose weight and keep it off. If you want something done right, you hire an expert to ensure the job gets done correctly. Choosing a weight loss program is no different. The expert support team provided at WellDatrix is unmatched. Why go about losing weight any other way???
