Matt, this is a wonderful diet plan. It is totally something I can manage. Easy, not a lot of cooking....awesome. I am really impressed and thankful. WOW. I can't believe a service like this exists on the internet. Thanks again. -- Silvia C

With the new eating regiment that I have been following, the weight is just melting off of me... I am losing inches, and weight. I have went down two pant sizes!!!! Thank you for the exercises... It is great!!! I feel better and have much more energy. -- Marcy H

Thanks for all the great information. I'm doing the meal plans that Changing Shape selects simply because it's easier for me to shop and less time-consuming to think of what to have, etc. when I can just go to the fridge and look up what I'm supposed to make for tomorrow. I'm having a great time with this program and my husband has actually noticed weight loss in me already! -- Stephanie T

Thank you for your response!  It's great actually having someone respond to my questions and having an online coach. I know this seems like a lot of demands, but I'm trying to be as honest with you and myself.  One thing I appreciate about your plan is that it provided me with an approximate timeline for when I can expect to be at my goal weight (if I stick to the plan), which is something that helps immensely, because it gave me a visual image of what I can look and feel like at that time next year.  I haven't had something like that provided to me since I was on the Jenny Craig program back in 1990. Okay, I think I've said enough.  :- Thank you for your help in my quest for good health and good food choices! -- Kelly Y

Thanks for the help thus far. I've been doing much, much better on my nutritional plan, consuming 6-7 smaller, well balanced meals/snacks a day. I weighed myself this morning and found that I had lost about 5 pounds. Thanks! -- Mark R

I am trying to be more conscious of what I eat. Lost 1.6 lbs this week. Have a long way to go. May not seem like a big deal, but it's a great first baby step. I thought of the 1.6 lbs as 6 sticks of butter that just came off my butt and thighs. NOT BAD!!! --Helena H
