Our Success Stories

Rhodes Hall of Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center

Beth is enjoying her weight-loss success

Having always been "chubby," weight-loss was something I strived for and failed at daily. Since I've joined the program I have lost over 35 pounds and continue to see progress. The staff at the Healthy Living program have helped open my mind and remove triggers that have always kept me from being successful. They recognize that weight loss success looks different for everyone and have been flexible in giving me what I needed to finally start achieving a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Women support each other’s weight loss goals

'The Sisterhood'

Tamaris, Erin, Tricia and Bridget met during the Living Well class and formed a lasting friendhip. “We’ve been friends ever since and each other’s biggest supporters,” says Bridget. The quartet keeps in touch via social media and in person, helping each other and holding themselves accountable for their newly earned health.

“I know we’ll all be able to keep the weight off and continue the journey of life in our healthy bodies because of the great support and guidance we’ve received from OSU and from the friendship the four of us have created,” says Erin. “It’s become a sisterhood that none of us expected, but we are lucky to have found.”
