Group Wellness Class Helped Me

“I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you, Nutrition Link Services, and the Woodbridge Medical Group for a productive and enjoyable 8-week experience.  I received much more than a 15-pound weight loss during that time.

Admittedly, I was skeptical about this nutrition program at first.  I have been on diets since I was in the seventh grade (many more years than I want to admit).  Between that and all of the information I received from College classes, Internet searches, and what Doctors have told me, I thought I knew everything I needed to know about what and how to eat.  During the past eight weeks, however, I have not only learned a few new things but have also had the things I “knew” reinforced. 

The routine of attending a class every week was very helpful, as was the variety of topics and the support and input of the group.  It made the classes interesting so that I wanted to go back the next week.  I also appreciated your realistic approach to a healthier lifestyle.  The fact that we all face times when it is not possible to eat in a healthy manner (or we just do not want to) does not make us a failure.  As long as we work towards an overall better lifestyle, we are all successful.

As I said at the beginning of this note, I am grateful for the start this program has given me. I have had some medical issues, many of them stemming from poor diet choices. I feel strongly that the things I have learned and put into practice will help to reduce, if not alleviate some of those issues.

I know that this is just the beginning and that it is very easy to fall back on old habits, but I do feel that it is a strong start and that the tools we have received from you will make it a little easier to keep going.  I look forward to the next challenge and hope that I can share it with you and others in the group.”
