"I went to see Dr. Hynes because my blood sugar level was reaching a level at which I would have to take medication for diabetes. Using her common sense approach, I lost 25 pounds in one year and my blood sugar level went from pre-diabetic to no concern about diabetes and all my other medical tests improved too. I was so impressed I decided to stick with the program and lose more weight.”
“I have had a wonderful experience at the GW weight management program. Prior to ‘joining’ the GW program, I was struggling physically and emotionally with weight gain. I wanted some structure that supported a healthy lifestyle and weight. After my first visit, I Immediately I felt like this is something I can do as a life-long approach to a healthy weight.
I have had good experience utilizing the tools suggested/offered by the program. I especially like the websites, books, counseling and visits with Dr. Hynes. Usually, with each visit, I walked away with a new website or a book with a relevant topic to keep me motivated and interested. I did a lot of little things that made a difference over time. I weighed myself each day, ate protein at every meal, utilized positive messaging and exercise most days along with walking 10,000 steps. I limited food but did not deny myself food. This program has made a significant difference in how I view myself and manage my weight. I am 40 + pounds lighter and emotionally feel in control of my eating. I want to acknowledge the role of Dr. Hynes in my success. Dr. Hynes’ manner and approach was supportive, realistic, and encouraging. She provides good practical suggestions to my ‘obstacles’. I believe she genuinely wants the best for each person in the program. I am grateful to be a part of the program; it has changed my life!”
