“I feel much better. My blood pressure has decreased. My medication has decreased by half. By next year I’ll be off meds completely.”

I chose Newtopia because I’d never done a program that had a coach, and also because of the genetic testing component. I wanted to see if it could come up with tools to reach and maintain a healthy weight. I’ve dieted in the past and done yo-yo dieting. I wanted to see what it would be like to have support; would it help me maintain my weight? I’m trying to do more things in my daily life to get more steps. I park far away in the parking lot. I take the steps, not the elevator. I’m not as winded when I do a flight of stairs. I used to climb one flight, now I can climb three!
