    The Shrinking Woman

    What can we say about Amber? She may be one of the most inspiring GOLO journeys we have ever witnessed. In an effort to help others, she revealed the many struggles –– both physical and mental –– she experienced due to her weight. Throughout her journey[DL1] , her humble and consistent attitude has transformed her into a role model for anyone trying to lose weight and fight depression, all at the same time. Last year, she wrote a lengthy blog post about how vulnerable she felt before losing weight with GOLO. Amber is a great example as to why Non-Scale Victories (NSV) are essential. We couldn’t be prouder of her success, even…

    The Family Who GOLOs Together: Part II

    Eight weeks in the program: 3/8/2020 At the 6-week mark of this program came the dreaded time for us to move our daughter over 3,000 miles away to Vancouver, BC.  She got accepted to a film school that has the exact program degree that she wants to have as a career.  She’s always been a shy kid, but she really wanted this and who are we to stomp on her dreams?  I was going out with her 2 weeks before her program started to get her set up in her apartment.  In addition to this being a sad time of letting our baby go and not seeing her every day,…

    A Kinder Approach to Weight Loss

    ABy: Maria Amado People often think maintaining a healthy weight is simply about looks while ignoring the catastrophic health consequences caused by obesity. Our GOLO customer, Jamey Coggins, put it best: “I had years of struggle, and I was desperate to get back to a healthier weight to take the stress out of my body.” Jamey was a victim to a laundry list of health issues. At 228 pounds, the complications began to scare her. “I was short of breath with no energy and my cholesterol reached a dangerous level of 265 LDL,” she said. Her final warning came when she experienced several TIA strokes. “The underlying cause of a TIA often is a buildup…

    The Truth About Plant-Based “Meats”

    If you are vegetarian, vegan or are just wanting to eat less meat, you might have heard of Beyond Meat or the Impossible Burger. These plant-based burgers are becoming more popular and even some well-known food chains like Burger King, Red Robin, and White Castle are offering them on the menu. But are these foods as healthy as they are made out to be? Beyond Meat products are made of yellow pea protein isolates. These are made by breaking down the yellow pea itself through numerous processes. Sounds healthy right? But it’s not that simple. It is similar to brown rice- when the outer layer is polished to create white…

    The Gift of Health

    By: Maria Amado We feel loved and acknowledged when we receive a gift. But what about the precious gift we should be giving to ourselves—the one we take for granted when we are overweight? Our Health. Deanna turned 50 on January 5, 2019. She had a fantastic party with family and friends, and she received all the gifts she wanted and even more—but she was shocked by the photos from her celebration. Behind her smile, she was hiding extra pounds underneath loose-fitting clothes. She suffered from aching arthritis in her knees and arms, too. The photos showed a clear message: “Do something about your health. NOW.” Before she finally decided…

    The Family Who GOLOs Together, Loses Together (and Stays Together)

    I want to start off by saying that I was asked to write this post because my family and I are in a unique position of doing this all together and are at the beginning stages of our journey to lose weight. The information that is provided is very personal and I was reluctant at first to disclose this aspect of our lives, however after discussing it with my husband, we feel that it is important for the reader to know this information to understand how really unique our situation is. We are a family of 5, myself (the wife and mother), my husband, 19-year-old daughter, 15-year-old daughter and 8…

    Do It Your Way and Lose Weight

    By: Maria Amado These days, immediate solutions are a must. Need to deposit a check? Use an online banking portal. Looking for love? Swipe on a dating app. Hungry? Drive to a fast food spot. But oftentimes, these quick fixes aren’t smart or healthy. The reality is, there is no magic pill we can take to lose weight immediately –– we have to listen to our bodies and put in hard work. Just ask Melanie Yozwiak. Her courage and determination helped transform her life. “I walked into a doctor’s office to get my knees checked, and the first thing out of his mouth was that I needed to lose weight…
