I no longer take my blood pressure medicine, it is back to normal, and I feel so much healthier! I no longer experience joint pain and can get around with ease now. I am more active with my kids because I have so much more energy; which in turn gives me a better quality of life.

What did Dr. Darby’s weight-loss program do for you both physically and mentally?

It’s helped me reclaim my life.  I am now more active with my kids and another incredible bonus…it got me off prescription drugs.

Why did you choose her program over other programs?

How will you maintain this lifestyle change?

I have become much more aware of the types of food to eat and the foods I should avoid. I will continue to food journal to keep me accountable and help maintain my weight loss.

I like to share my lifestyle changes with my patients, as well as offer my medical expertise. I have helped many clients start their weight loss journey and successfully reach their goals. It gives me great joy to see my patients lose weight, feel better and most importantly improve their overall health.

This months weight loss transformation started her program with me, in January 2019; weighing 241 pounds. In July 2019 she now weighs 217 pounds, losing a total of 24lbs. Most importantly she feels amazing!

Below you will find key information about her weight-loss journey with Lifestyle Changes, and how it is helping to transform her overall health and wellness.

  1. What has this transformation meant to you?

 Better health! As I age and watch family members age it makes me aware there are many health issues that come up; that we have no control over but have to deal with them.  In addition, there are health issues we bring on ourselves with our daily, lifestyle choices. I am taking control of my overall health before those things continue to creep up on me.

  1. What did Dr. Darby’s weight-loss program do for you both physically and mentally?

Physically, I know the less weight I carry the less stress on my heart, which is better for my overall health. The program is realistic because I see the weight come off slowly and steadily, which helped pushed me positively to keep me going! Each small change in my eating habits and physical activity builds up to a complete lifestyle change, and makes the diet and exercise easier to balance and maintain long term.

Mentally, Dr. Darby is available to help me along on this journey.  She understands how it works and set realistic goals for me to obtain.  She meets my challenges and sometimes complaintswith suggestions re: how to deal with all of that; and meets my victories with joy and encouragement.  She is genuinely happy to see me win!

I actually went into the meal replacement program blindly with Dr. Darby. The program itself is easy and adaptable and the meal replacements have really worked for me. I often come to Dr. Darby with lots questions and clarifications surrounding my weight loss.  If there is something that she does not know, she is great about researching the best approach and solution; and then going over all of those details with me as often and as long as needed.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires daily commitment.  I have to be held accountable for the choices that I make, as it relates to diet and exercise. The summer will be a delicate balance between delicious summer foods and keeping my physical activity up. The greatest thing about summer us that I do find it easier to stay active.  I will continue to follow the program and keep my body moving 5-6 days a week; and by check in with Dr. Darby who helps hold me accountable for my overall health.

Lose Weight, Promote Health, Cure Illness!

My name is Dr. Janine Darby and I have been practicing medicine for 15 years, with a specialization in Family Medicine and most recently, Obesity Medicine. I chose this particular field because I have a vested interest in chronic illness prevention. In addition to my work life, I am also a wife of 24 years and a mother of four.

Six years ago, I turned 40. I felt sluggish, had gained some extra weight over time, and didn’t feel well both mentally and physically! I decided to focus on losing the weight and took the first steps to change my life, by changing my diet. I coupled the change in my diet with a fitness regimen. I lost 30 pounds and felt great about myself; and more importantly I felt more energized than ever.

During my weight-loss journey I became intrigued with the field of obesity medicine. I attended multiple conferences and learned more about this complex field of medicine. I realized that this was what I wanted to devote my time to and so Lifestyle Changes was born. I began to share my story with patients who had their own weight issues; as well as tending to other health needs/issues they may have. I follow evidence-based medicine, to create a comprehensive weight loss management plan and prescribe anti-obesity medications if deemed appropriate for the patient. It gives me great joy to see my patients lose weight, feel better and improve their overall health.

I am thrilled to launch Lifestyle Changes, a virtual medical practice; and look forward to transforming more lives!
