Jenny’s Story – Lost 100 Pounds

Jenny had always been “a larger girl.” She had started and failed on many different diets. It wasn’t until she found the HMR program that she was able to lose 100 lbs. and begin living a healthier lifestyle. She is amazed at how far she has come from a life of watching TV on the couch, to working as a trainer at her gym. People following the Healthy Solutions In-Clinic program can generally expect to lose 1-2 lbs. per week during the active weight loss phase. Int J Obes 2007;31:1270-1276

“I’ve been overweight my whole life. Before HMR my waist was 58 inches and I was a candidate for a heart attack and for diabetes. I had tried other diets before and would be successful initially, but would never maintain the weightloss. I used to go out for lunch all the time at work and the only vegetables I ate came on a pizza before HMR.


Laina V – Lost 100 Pounds


“Thanks to HMR, I’ve become the person that I always wanted to be.”
At 270 pounds with her wedding less than a year away, Laina knew she had to do something different. After a lifetime of obesity and failed diets, she was, in her own words, “Desperate. I didn’t want to be a fat bride.”

“My doctor told me to try the HMR Program. I had spent so much mental energy berating myself about my weight, I was ready to say, just tell me what to eat and tell me how much to eat, because I just can’t do it on my own.”

In six months, Laina lost 80 pounds, eventually walking down the aisle as an “ecstatic” bride in a size 14–16 dress, which had been altered from a size 22. After the wedding, she entered HMR’s maintenance program and lost another 15 pounds. Today, at 5’ 11’’ and 170 pounds, she is trim and incredibly happy.

“HMR was the silver bullet for me. I had spent so much mental energy hating myself, not understanding why I couldn’t lose weight. With HMR, I noticed the soundtrack in my head was no longer berating me. It was positive instead of negative.”

“I’m a happy, friendly person now because I was able to take control of my life and become the person that I always wanted to be.”


HMR’s published data for the type of program Laina participated in shows 50–60 pounds average weight loss. Many people lose more weight.
