What Participants are Saying
One of the recommendations for successful weight loss is to record your progress regularly. Several participants found recording their progress helpful.
- Suzanne Wood, Green Lake County: "Keeping track of my weight loss each week motivated me to keep going."
- Katelyn Webster, Sheboygan Falls School District: "It was helpful to track my progress. As long as I focused on filling my days with many fruits, veggies, and lean proteins, I was able to see positive results."
- Lynda Lambert, Marathon County: "It was good to be accountable to report progress and final percent lost. I started eating healthier and incorporated more lean protein into my diet."
