“I was not living a healthy, active life. Although I had no immediate medical issues, I knew I couldn’t go on as I was. I needed a change that would stick.”

AGE 45: Active, running Mom
“I was not living a healthy, active life. Although I had no immediate medical issues, I knew I couldn’t go on as I was. I needed a change that would stick. And I didn’t want to just go on a diet, I wanted to re-work my life.
I liked the idea that JumpstartMD was medically supervised and that my initial appointment was based on getting to know where I stood, physiologically, through a body scan. This helped me to trust in the process; it showed that it’s not a fad or something where they’re just trying to make some money off of me. It felt like they’re actually concerned about my long-term health. Also, I wanted individual coaching or meetings. I wanted special attention – action items for me and my unique situation – and accountability through direct one-on-one interaction and not in a group setting.
I’ve now gone from sitting on the couch to completing 3 triathlons in just 371 days. My current goal is to move up to Sprint class on my next race. When Jumpstart asked if I would be willing to share my story, I was like ‘If that’s the thing that convinces people to make the call or take the leap, then that is something that I’d love to be able to help people with because I know, when I first made that call, I felt lost. Like, it seemed so daunting because the likelihood that I could make that kind of change felt next to impossible. But if someone can read this and be like ‘Oh my gosh, this person did it!’, that would be awesome!’”
“I’ve tried to lose weight for many years without success and had basically given up trying to lose weight. Then I was diagnosed with uncontrollable diabetes Type II, and already had arthritis all over my body. I was weighing in at 230 pounds and diagnosed with obesity.”

AGE 53: Focused, medically-challenged Mom
“I’ve tried to lose weight for many years without success and had basically given up trying to lose weight. Then I was diagnosed with uncontrollable diabetes Type II, and already had arthritis all over my body. I was weighing in at 230 pounds and diagnosed with obesity. Also, my blood sugar numbers were running very high even on my medication. And I was not feeling well. I just knew I had to do something for my health. I was just sick of being sick, and I just knew I had to do something about it. If I didn’t, I would end up dying.
I looked around, did some research, and tried Jumpstart. Now, I feel absolutely fantastic. I feel good about myself, I feel energized most of the time, just like a new person. And I feel comfortable in my own skin, too. I’m also not tired anymore and don’t have headaches. And with my diabetes, because my numbers were so high, I was confused a lot. I don’t have that anymore; I feel very clear.
I lost so much weight and didn’t even really have to work at it. And I was just amazed because I never thought I was going to be able to lose weight. Or, if I lost weight, it would be like three pounds, it wouldn’t be like the 50 I’ve lost with Jumpstart. I was just blown away that it just came off, and how easy it stayed off.”
“The first thing that impressed me was their breadth of knowledge, expertise and professionalism. They have highly qualified, educated people on staff, have a great attitude and are extremely positive and supportive.”

AGE 68: Physically active lawyer
“I heard about JumpstartMD from a doctor friend who successfully used the program. The first thing that impressed me was their breadth of knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. They have highly qualified, educated people on staff, have a great attitude, and are extremely positive and supportive. They each have their area of expertise. For instance, one staff member is into medicine, and we talked about nutritional supplements. Another staff member comes from a personal training standpoint, and we discuss muscle building and physical training issues. The clinicians are excellent at analyzing bloodwork and dealing with the important issues such as my heart condition. They are very detailed, but can explain your situation in a way that you can actually understand.
Overall, it felt like JumpstartMD isn’t just a weight loss program. It is a focused educational and informative program and helps me learn about my body, figure out what’s going on and why I felt the way I felt. What happens if I eat this or that, what happens if I gain weight, how do I lose it the right way again, what’s going on with my metabolism and bloodwork? And they have a scientific approach to address all of these issues.
My weight basically dropped nearly 12 pounds a month for the first three months of the program, then I lost about another 11 over the next two and a half months, and then about another nine over five or six months. My weight has been stable at about 175, so overall, about 65-pound loss.”
“So, I’m a mom of three boys. I work out a lot and have always said that I have good eating habits. But my weight was up and I wanted to get back to my wedding weight and I’m done having kids and I couldn’t, I just couldn’t kick my belly.”

AGE 38: Mom and business owner
“So, I’m a mom of three boys. I work out a lot and have always said that I have good eating habits. But my weight was up and I wanted to get back to my wedding weight and I’m done having kids and I couldn’t, I just couldn’t kick my belly. You know, that extra fat around my belly and my hips, from all the babies.
My thought going into the first appointment was, ‘I’ll just go in and get this initial visit and I’ll just see.’ I didn’t know what to expect. I signed up for the monthly plan before I left because I felt like, “I’m gonna come here and it’s going to help me really stick to this and do this.” So I was onboard. I’m like, ‘I’m going to give this a go!’ And then I dropped 10 pounds the first week, and I’m like, ‘I’m done, I’m in!’
With Jumpstart, you drop pounds and immediately you feel more confident in your step. You know, my clothes fit better, some were falling off of me. So it made me feel great about myself. I still feel great. I feel like I’m at a very comfortable weight where I’m not trying to hide anything on my body, which makes me more confident. Jumpstart has helped me to get the weight off that I wanted to get off and it’s a simple, simple way of thinking about food and adjusting it to your lifestyle without being complicated.
Jumpstart is a lifestyle training; a food lifestyle training. It’s a simple way of thinking about food. I stand on the scale every day and check in with my body, saying “Okay, go back to those habits that Jumpstart taught you.” I mean, I love it. I’m so happy I did Jumpstart.”
