Hi there! I’m Mary Ann Del Aguaro, a newbie to Dr. Clark’s e-Weight Management University. I am overweight and have been yo-yo dieting most of my adult life. Wow, that sounded like an intro to an AA meeting! As hokey as that sounded, if I’m brutally honest, it’s true, and I’m afraid of failing again.
I feel that in order to be successful in this next and hopefully last “diet”, it’s important to understand why I haven’t been able to lose weight and keep it off. So here goes!
As a “woman of substance”, if there’s a new diet out there, I’ve tried it. From Weight Watchers, Adkins, South Beach, some chocolate wafer thing, Fen/Fen to Jenny Craig, and those are just the ones I can remember! In fact when the intake interviewer with Jenny Craig asked me to list all the diets I’ve tried in the past, I had to continue on the back of the page! Most worked, I got results, felt good, looked better, had some wiggle room –and wiggled myself right back where I started!
I have always been impressed by Dr. Clark’s programs. In fact, on several visits to Virginia, Karol (she’s my sister!) took us to the Center for Weight Loss, introduced the variety of programs and product and even “treated” my other sister and I to a workout session! It was brutal and I’m glad the evil room of pain will be demolished!–Just kidding! When she gave me this opportunity to try the Weight Management University and online instruction, I wondered…can I be successful long distance? I am afraid of disappointing my family and of not having all the resources I need since I live in Ohio. As I get older, it gets easier to gain weight and harder to lose it, but it’s time to take control and make this work.
Yes, I am committed, excited and ready to make a life change to become a smaller, healthier, smarter me. Thank you, Dr Clark and Karol, for this opportunity.
