Ohio State can help you improve your life

Patient Testimonial

Ethan's weight loss journey

Ethan has shed more than 100 pounds thanks to the Living Well weight management program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

"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." Erin Living Well member
"I strongly recommend the OSU Real Solutions program for consistent and sensible weight loss. Mary, my dietitian, has been a great help teaching and reinforcing the behaviors driving my weight loss. I look forward to our weekly meetings so I can share my latest successes and learn how to keep progressing. This is the best $150 I’ve spent in a long, long time.” Tom Real Solutions member

Weight Loss Success Stories

The Sisterhood

'The Sisterhood'

Tamaris, Erin, Tricia and Bridget met during the Living Well class and formed a lasting friendship. “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.”


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.
