I gained 50 pounds while I was pregnant with my first child and after he was born, I just couldn’t get the weight off. One of my co-workers was going to Medi Weightloss Clinics of Durham and had already lost 32 pounds, so I decided to give it a try. At my first visit, I found a fully-functioning medical practice. They spent almost two hours going over my history with me, doing a physical, an EKG, a urinalysis, blood tests and explaining the nutrition of the program. I got a shopping list and found everything at the grocery store. In the first week, I lost 12 pounds! It really wasn’t even that hard. Since then, I’ve been losing about 3 pounds each week. They have all kinds of recipes that I love to try so that I don’t get bored eating the same things every week. So far, I’ve lost 34 pounds! They took a picture of me when I started and another one after I had lost 30 pounds and it was awesome to see the difference. I would recommend Medi Weightloss Clinics of Durham to anyone!
I wanted to lose 20 pounds before my wedding last spring, and a friend told me about Medi Weightloss Clinics of Durham. I decided to try it out and I’m glad I did; I lost 20 pounds in a month and have kept it off since then! I looked great in my wedding and honeymoon pictures. The staff at Medi Weightloss Clinics of Durham is very friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They really worked with me to lose the weight and taught me how to read nutritional labels to make healthy decisions. Now I know exactly how I should eat and exercise to lose weight and maintain my weight. They were always available to answer any questions I had or encourage me when I was having a hard time. I still go in once a month because I can’t stay away! I would definitely recommend this program to anyone looking to lose any amount of weight.
It actually works!!! – I've tried a lot of different weight lost programs! This works for me! If you are a "meat eater" then this is for you! The recipes are so good they make you feel like you're cheating!! The staff is great, very helpful and soooo sweet! I lost 30lbs in 8 weeks! It wasn't that hard! if you follow the program you will get the results! Just for the record I never write reviews (however I always read them) but I just want to let everyone know that this REALLY WORKS!!
Medi Weight Loss of Durham Gave Me The Tools To Succeed!! – I seemed to have tried everything, but I was on a roller coaster of weight swings. I used to jump on every fad diet... and they worked for a short time, but the weight would always return. Sound familiar? Then, based on a co-workers success (she lost 43 pounds), I started my own program at Medi Weight Loss Clinics in Durham last June. I just weighed in on Thursday and have lost 36 pounds and counting!!! I even maintained my weight loss through all the Thanksgiving and Christmas parties my husband and I went to! I couldn't believe, I really had finally made a real lifestyle change! I feel great and know I am a healthier person inside and out (not to mention my husband can't keep his hands off me!). No way this transformation would have happened without the doctors and staff at Medi Weight Loss of Durham. They were so helpful and supportive and took the time to teach me how to make these lifestyle changes...shopping at the grocery store, reading food labels, cooking great tasting recipes, I can do it all now!!! THE MEDI WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM IS SO EASY TO FOLLOW! Thank you Medi!!!!
Week 1 Was A Success!! – My wife and I just finished up our first week at Medi-Weightloss Clinics of Durham. I lost 12lbs and my wife lost 7lbs! And it was so easy! First of all, when you walk into the clinic you realize this is something different. It isn’t some hole in the wall where they are pushing pills, this is a real upscale doctors office (its actually in the same building as a bunch of Duke doctors). On our first visit, the Medi team spent over an 1.5 hrs with each of us, really taking the time to get to know us, understanding what we struggle with, what our goals are, checking all of our medical history, doing an EKG, blood work, urinalysis, full physical…it was much more involved then I ever expected. Over the course of the first week, my wife and I focused on our protein calories, making sure we journaled all the time and we made a lot of tasty recipes the Medi team gave to us. I didn’t feel like I was starving myself, in fact by day 5 I found myself struggling to get in all the protein calories I was told to eat. I just had my second visit and now we are starting to add more fruits and veggies to our meals…let me tell you, after eating protein for a week straight, vegetables taste like candy! This program works, its easy to follow and the staff is extremely professional and knowledgeable. My wife and I will reach our 100lb weight loss goal!!
Its No Longer A "Diet" For Me, I've Made a Permanent Change! – Let me start this off by saying that I am 26 and up until March of this year I was a basket case diet addict. No, really, I was. I had tried it ALL- guaranteed. I would lose some weight, gain it back (twice over, typically), find a different diet and then settle in for the evening with a bag of Double Stuffed Oreo's and cry myself to sleep- only to start the same insanity all over again. This form of extreme dieting and binge eating had not only wrecked my self-confidence, it RUINED my metabolism. I was hopeless- not to mention fat, fatigued and depressed. Just when I thought life couldn't POSSIBLY get any worse- I was "summoned" to be in my best friends wedding in 4 months time. Dear, Lord. Mental images of my large body exploding out of my bridesmaid dress sent me over the edge. I "Googled" every crash diet out there. Dead end- I had tried ALL of them. The next day, while crying tears of impending doom over a greasy burrito and cheese plate, I remembered a coworker of mine who had just started trying out a program called Medi Weight Loss and had lost a great deal of weight. I booked an appointment and counted down the days till starvation began. Let me tell you, I couldn't have been any more off base on my expectations of what MWL was. From my first consultation (early March) until now (January), I have lost just over 60 pounds. NO STARVATION necessary! My self diagnosed sugar addiction and the undeniable desire to cram as many spoonfuls of ice cream into my mouth at one time- it's all gone. My life has truly been forever changed. I never would have thought the day would come when I could go out to dinner with my girlfriends and LOOK FORWARD to ordering a healthy meal, exercising regularly and shopping for clothes. It has been just as much an internal improvement as it has an external, which (at least for me), is truly priceless. It's not just the program that continues to give me outstanding results, it's the staff. I walk in there and truly feel home, at ease, encouraged, confident and welcomed. They know you're human, they understand that every week isn't going to be stellar time at the dinner table and also somehow know exactly what to say to keep you feeling like a motivated rock-star. I believe it's because their encouragement comes from the heart, they know it works and they believe in not just the program but in the people that come into their office seeking a change. This is no longer a diet for me. This is something that I hope to continue on for the rest of my life- it would be unwise not to; it's easiness and simplicity is unmatched (and, let me tell you, I would know). I stress to all of those on a weight loss journey to seriously consider and committing to this. Thank you Medi team, for not just being a fantastic support system but for becoming friends of mine, as well. Y'all are too wonderful for words!
CHANGE YOUR LIFE - You Don't Need Surgery – My family at Medi Weightloss Clinic of Durham has helped me to achieve my weightloss goal! I now have the confidence and the knowledge to maintain my weightloss. When I started my journey, I had been through Gastric Bypass (8 years ago) and gained 70 percent of the weight back. I had been diagnosed with Diabetes (not any more!) and was so out of shape I could barely climb the stairs. I debated for a good while when trying to decide if I was willing to go to the expense of this program. All the while my diabetes continued to get further and further out of control, as did my lipids (good and bad cholesteral as well as triglycerides).It was a one way road to nowhere except an early grave in all likelihood. I asked my Dr. about several options and she did not approve of any of them. When I asked about the Medi-WeightLoss Clinic of Durham; which had been recommended by a friend, she said, "Now you are talking." She had several patients who had been successful on the program. I called and made the initial appt. and have been blessed ever since. I have lost 58 lbs. in 12 weeks and have corrected a lot of bad eating habits and choices. The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. I know this will be a life time change for me. I have more weight to lose, but already my blood sugar and triglicerides are down significantly and my cholesterol is normal. I am getting healthy, looking better, and feeling great! I highly recommend Durham Medi-Weight Loss Clinic. I look forward to my weekly visits because I don't just feel like a patient - I feel like a family member.
Its Easy To Lose 40 Pounds in 3 Months!!!! – My family has always been overweight. Diets and exercise never showed results and my schedule never allowed for the time to do what it took to drop the weight. At Medi it is just too easy. Just follow the plan and remember that the carrot they dangle in front of you is self esteem and a slimmer and trimmer you. The cost? Yes, this is something that always comes up. Now let me ask a question. Do you like clothes shopping? Do you enjoy outdoor activities that involve swimwear or interaction with healthy people? Do you eat out at restaurants? Can you afford to give all of that up for about 3 months of your life? For me, I lost over 40 pounds in 3 months. I even had to travel overseas for a month where I couldn't do everything correctly, but I didn't revert back to bad habits either. I still lost a little. Once back I was back on track again. I averaged around 3 pounds a week. Is it worth it to buy shorts or a shirt off the rack? Is it worth it to be able to buy things mail order without trying them on? You bet 'cha! I don't regret it a bit. I can't wait to hit my goal. I started at 230 pounds and I am currently 184. My healthy goal is 180, but I plan on hitting 179. Then I have the rest of my life to be healthy and happy. You can give up anything for 3 months if you think of it that way.
Finally A Program That Works!! – After turning 50, I started to add pounds around my mid-section, the worst place! I weighed more than I have ever weighed in my life when I started the Medi-Weightloss program. I had tried many times on my own to lose weight as well as two well known organized programs. I had minimal success. I continued to add weight each year and was miserable. I felt tired and sluggish all of the time, and was depressed about the way I Iooked and the way my clothes fit me - or should I say didn't fit me. I researched many different ways to lose weight and several different clinics and programs. I decided on Medi Weightloss Clinics of Durham and I'm so glad that I did! Everyone in the clinic is so friendly and personable! They really do care about your health and getting you to a healthy weight. Everyone celebrates your milestones and your accomplishments and it really feels good to have such a great support system! I am more than halfway to my goal and I look forward to reaching my goal.
Medi Weightloss of Durham Is The Best! – I am a huge fan of MEDI WEIGHT LOSS, it really is “the one that works.” The staff is professional, enthusiastic, supportive and courteous. From day one, I have looked forward to going twice a week to meet with staff. In five weeks, I have lost 32 pounds. I recommend the program to all my friends and family members who want to succeed in their weight loss journey. Try it! You have nothing to lose, but all those unwanted pounds. And you will add years to your life!
