Patient Testimonials & Reviews
I came here after I we came disgruntled with my Kaiser physical therapy. They are aggressive in treatment and push you to get better. The next time I went back to my orthopedic I was cleared for full activity after just 12 visits. If you have an issue go see them!
All staff members take a personal interest in your recovery. They change-up your routine and keep you challenged as you progress through your therapy sessions!
The whole team is awesome. Very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, bilingual, and professional! I’ve been coming in for my right knee level 2 tear MCL and I can feel strength and mobility coming back 100%.
Great therapist and therapy exercises. I love the electrical stimulation.
I cannot speak highly enough of this practice. All the staff are very knowledgeable and provide genuine care for their patients. I am glad I found this place.
Having problems for over two months before I came here – after two sessions, I already see a change. They told and showed me what I could do at home to help myself – they are awesome. I would send everyone here – very impressed.
Amazing staff and excellent care. They really care about their patients here. My injury has had me coming here for close to a year now. Without them, I wouldn’t have the life and mobility that I have. Because of the benefits of being a patient here, I’ve been set up with a metabolic coach to help me eat better and lose weight and I have access to all of the gym equipment during my appointments and I’m in far better health thanks to coming here. I’ve met people of all ages and backgrounds here and it’s like one big family. Everyone looks out for each other. I’ve had PT elsewhere and have found that the level of treatment here is far more hands on. They are serious about helping patients have more mobility and better, healthier living. I recommend that anyone who needs PT come here. You won’t regret the quality level of treatment you receive here. Loren, Ashley, Trevor, Ivette, Mitzi, Frankie, Erin, Felisha and sometimes Alex are all the people that I interact with in Redlands and they have become my second family. I love them and all the others who have worked here! I love this place!!! ❤❤❤?️♀️?
Best physical therapy clinic! I went from not being able to walk without a cane to running, being physically active without limitations, and even completing a Spartan Super because of their wonderful quality of care, attention to patient needs/desires, and follow through. This clinic doesn’t give you a “to do list;” they listen to your goals and create a recovery plan custom-tailored to the patient. They’re not just therapeutic, they’re constructive. They guided me through the tried and true recovery process, gave me advice on workouts upon completing the recovery plan, and coached me on lifestyle changes to help avoid issues moving forward. I won’t go anywhere else!
Incredibly professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. They utilize the most effective and up-to-date equipment. The facility is clean and the staff takes great care and pride in their work and environment. I can’t sing enough praises for the wonderful staff who demonstrate integrity in their work and practice what they preach. I highly recommend Marketplace to anyone who needs PT; it’s hands down the BEST!!!! Thank you, Loren, for changing my life as well as the rest of the Marketplace team.
Dr. Engle and the team at Marketplace Physical therapy have been great. They’re professional, knowledgeable and you can tell they love what they do and they make a great team. As I continue to recover from surgery, the Marketplace Physical Therapy team has helped educate me on ways to strengthen the area without risking injury. They stay up on the latest developments to ease pain and expedite their patient’s recovery; as I saw when they provided me tape for my arm which provided relief from constant pain. They show empathy, provide homework so you can continue to improve, and they also use a healthy dose of humor to put their patients at ease. I have seen steady improvements every week; thanks to their efforts and wise advice. I highly recommend Marketplace Physical Therapy.
Dr. Engle is fantastic! Everyone is so friendly and very professional. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Trust me, tell your doctor that this is the place you want to be referred to.
Physical therapy has given me the ability to walk again without a leg brace. The therapists have been knowledgeable and helpful. Love Megan’s deep tissue massage therapy and James dedicated helpfulness. Everyone has been kind and helpful.
This Marketplace Physical Therapy is the best place to go! Dr. Steve and his staff are attentive to your needs and help you get back to your strong, working self. They are also such a welcoming and tightknit family of people! Couldn’t be where I am at today without them! — Matt, Meghan, and Frankie are amazing. Gabi is the best! James is corgi-cool. 5-stars!!
Clean, spacious gym/facility. Reputable establishment staffed with the friendliest of faces! Tremendous service never goes unnoticed! The PT team has a genuine passion in helping others and care for their patients’ well-being. They go above and beyond for their patients!
Love coming here because the staff is friendly, and they don’t waste your time. The workouts are amazing, and they are helping me become me again. The staff is easy to talk to as well, like you would any other friend. Highly recommend them.
This is my second time here today and all I can say I the staff is very welcoming they pay attention to the main reason you are here and help you out with any questions or exercise. I like how nice and helpful the staff is, so I recommend the doctors here as well they are very nice, helpful and always with a smile.
The staff was great!! Dr. Eric was very thorough with my options of treatment. He’s really knowledgeable and very confident in what he’s doing.. made feel like I’m in good hands. Thank you!
All the people here care about how you feel, they are gentle & good at what they do. If you need or want to get help then this is the place to go.
I would recommend everyone here. They’re very personable. Even when they are running late or crowded they still take time to come to you look you in the eye and let you know what’s going on. They always have a smile on their face and talk to you ask you how are you feeling and so forth, they make you feel comfortable. Love it.
Love this place! They have such a caring and professional staff one can’t help but get better!
Great facility and friendly, knowledgable staff. I highly recommend these guys to everyone for their physical therapy needs!
I was very happy after my physical therapy treatment. I’m thinking about joining their boot camp now.
Everyone is awesome and super helpful. Always try to make sure your comfortable and do the best to help you recover as fast as possible. Everyone is friendly and put your health first 100% would recommend!
This place has inspired me to get healthier and the staff get an A+ in my book.
Dr. Brent and all of the staff have done an excellent job at helping me become a step closer every time I come in and workout and I greatly appreciate their support!
This place is amazing. The staff is very helpful and are able to answer whatever questions that you may have. The facility is well kept and clean.
Doctor Brent Wild, DPT. IS THE BEST Physical therapist. Very nice, professional, and kind. I have had therapy on my broken wrist and arm. Therapy here is the highlight of my day. The most pleasant, professional & nice smiles. Thank goodness.
They are literally the best. Not only did they help me physically but mentally also. They have a unique way to motivate people to push themselves way beyond the limitations of what your mind says you can or can’t do. It was truly an amazing experience.
Always look forward to coming here. Dr. Wild and the entire staff are so knowledgeable. They know what works best for you. I highly recommend joining the program, your body and soul will thank you!!
I couldn’t ask for a better physical therapy place! I love the staff, they make my visits very personal and they always make me feel welcome. They seem to love their job and that makes it a place where I am always happy to go and I always leave feeling better. I love that they make sure that what I do when I’m there helps me, everyone has a similar routine based on why they are there but it is specific to you and how they get to know what is beneficial for you.
I used to feel like working out was a chore, but once I began the prescribed training, I began to feel like it was a part of my routine to help maintain my body in it’s best shape. If we spend time maintaining our cars, why not our body? If you go to the gym and are seeing little to no results like I was, then I highly recommend giving the program at Marketplace Wellness Center a try. The guided workouts are designed by expert staff to optimize your time in the gym and get the results you are looking for. It doesn’t get better than that!
Staff are upbeat, helpful, and good listeners. I can go in feeling down, but I always leave in a happier and more positive state of mind. I look forward to my treatments.
I love every one of the staff as well as the therapist. I recommend anyone needing physical therapy or wellness to better yourself and help with pain, please choose this place. Brent is a good doctor who has taken the time with everyone who is a patient there and made sure all needs are met. To me the best two therapists/trainers my husband and I have worked with are Ray and Kyle they are the best. And the environment to us is better than a regular gym!!!
I was totally impressed with their care & dedication to making sure I was recovering from my knee replacement. I also saw the same care to all the other patients that were being seen when I was there. I will recommend them to; family, friends & the public.
So far, this has been a better experience than I could have imagined. It’s nice to be listened to, when I have input to give. Dr. Wild is very nice, and his staff is, too!
I absolutely love all of the staff at the Beaumont location! They are all extremely helpful and caring! They are professional and answered all my questions, showed me what to do until I could do it right so took all the time I needed to know how to do the exercises. They are awesome!!
After being diagnosed with an L4 herniated disc, I was referred to Dr. Ellstrom for treatment. Despite my doubts, I found Dr. Ellstrom and her able assistant Megan, to be knowledgeable, competent and thorough in her treatment plan, (with a pleasant demeanor to boot). While my back may never fully recover, she has brought me a great deal of relief and increased range of motion than I thought possible. I highly recommend Dr. Ellstrom for anyone needed a great Physical Therapist.
First I would like to thank Loren and the rest of the team. Alex, Brent, Michael and Frankie you guys are awesome! Words can’t express what the crew has helped me with. I fractured my calcaneus last year in December. Started my physical therapies a few months ago. Walked in on crutches and a few weeks later they had me walking. I still have a lot of work to do but I know I’m on my way back to being somewhat normal with my injury. The team is so welcoming with smiles on their faces. Knowledgable as well and very organized. They run a great program there. I look forward to the rest of my therapies and can count on the boys to keep leading me in the right direction. I feel that it does not get any better than this place. They are professional, talented, hardworking and committed to meet your needs. Thanks guys! I really appreciate everything you are doing for me.
The team here is so awesome! I go for physical therapy and Loren and his team rocks. They are very detailed and listen to you. This is my first time in physical therapy and I wish everyone could have the same experience I have with this gym. Thank for rehabilitating my foot.
An exceptional team of professionalism, competency, and proficiency. Their quality of care is unparalleled. I’ve been to multiple physical therapy clinics, and this one is by far the best. The whole team is very attentive and competent. They catered my recovery plan to my goals and ensured I understood the ins and outs of their tried and true process. I went from barely being able to walk with a cane to running and competing in obstacle course races (Spartan, etc.). They even helped me incorporate lifestyle changes and develop workout routines to keep progressing upon completion of my time as a patient.
I recommend them to everyone I know, and I refuse to go anywhere else for therapy.
I was referred to Marketplace PT by a friend, I would recommend Marketplace PT, I have been to other companies for physical therapy treatment however my physical therapy experienced at Marketplace PT was outstanding they are very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and they get results. They assessed my needs and really made a difference in my recovery, they explained the why’s and how of what the therapy consisted of and kept me engaged. I found Marketplace PT passionate about healing and helping me through the process. I highly recommend Marketplace Physical Therapy.
Over the past 15 years I’ve had numerous occasions to utilize physical therapists. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have had 9 or 10 major surgeries over the years including 2 knee replacements, 2 elbow replacements and a number of other surgeries requiring therapy.
I have gone through physical therapy at several other facilities in the area including those at local major hospitals. I first chose Marketplace because they were geographically convenient to my home in Redlands. I have returned to them for additional therapy for three reasons. First, I have trust in them; I know I’m in good hands. Secondly, I know that if I follow their instructions they will fix me. And thirdly they are the most understanding, knowledgeable and professional people I have yet to meet in the medical field (and I’ve met many more than my share).
It was truly an honor and a pleasure to have been “brought back to health” by Marketplace Physical Therapy. I urge anyone with need to call on Marketplace. They will, without a doubt, help you.
Don’t tell them I said so but I am forever indebted to Loren and his amazing, talented and fully capable team.
P.s. Loren does however have lousy taste in movies.
Great place! Jesse has magic hands!
I was in a motorcycle accident and insurance approved and recommended this location for my physical therapy. Glad that this place was it, and glad that I’m doing it. In the long run, with all the amazing care and support I’m getting from this awesome stuff, I’ll be back to my old self; pain-free. Very professional and encouraging, this place is awesome.
I have been coming here since Dec 2017. This place is great! The staff makes you forget why you’re even there. It’s “Happy Hour” without the alcohol haha!
I’ve had 23 visits to Market Place Physical Therapy for a work-related injury. I’m so happy that I was sent there–the staff is very attentive and highly supportive with your recovery; they truly care about their clients. The staff has a tremendous amount of experience that will help their clients recover. It is important to remember that as a patient, you have to want to recover too and work hard to achieve it. With their help and guidance, recovery is achievable. I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for physical therapy, and I thank them for all the help they’ve given me.
I was suffering from chronic neck pain and migraines for years when I was referred to Marketplace Riverwalk. I wasn’t sure it would even help, because I had just gotten used to being in discomfort. And not to be dramatic, but I was uncomfortable the point of being miserable most every day. After an assessment, I got set up with a plan that worked on not only fixing the underlying problem, but alleviating the chronic pain. Dr. Eric explained everything thoroughly, but in a way that actually made sense! And all the staff were similarly knowledgeable; I feel confident working with anyone on my sessions. Plus they make it fun! I honestly look forward to coming here!
Since I’ve started treatment, not only have all the original issues improved greatly, but I am more confident in my ability to eventually move into higher level activities, like rock climbing. That’s a big deal for me! I’ve had physical therapy for other issues in the past, and never been able to gain the level of confidence I feel since working at Marketplace Riverwalk. Definitely recommended.
If you’re looking to recover from whatever injury you have, this is the place for you.
The therapists (Eric, Jamie and KC) at this particular location, are nothing short of amazing. They are knowledgeable in their field and are passionate about your recovery. The staffers (Antonio and Jecenia) are Super friendly and always helping out all patients. They are always making sure your exercises are being done correctly and efficiently.. no matter how busy they get…. and it gets busy.
The teamwork being displayed at this facility is an example of how other places should be.
What sets this place apart from other PT facilities is the gym. You have access to every workout machine you’ll find in a normal fitness center. Great staff with the right tools is the key to recovery…. hands down the best!!
Eric Ryan McGann is really helpful and very friendly…
My wife got bad shoulder pain at work, she couldn’t move her arm and I called Marketplace Physical Therapy since they have the higher rating on Yelp. We set up the appointment on the same day. Dr. Eric did take time and carefully diagnosed, and gave a treatment and rehabilitation advice even we came for a free consolation. My wife did feel better at the time. We are Kaiser member, Eric told us if we go to Kaiser, he can recommend Kaiser’s therapist, or come back if Kaiser charges more copays or take longer time. We will definitely come back at the similar or a little more cost for the great service. In this place, you can feel they care about you not the money.
I highly recommend Dr. Eric and this clinic.
Physical therapy with Dr. Eric and his staff was my favorite part of recovery. They helped me through back to back surgeries for both of my hands for a work comp injury. Every time I visited Marketplace Physical Therapy, Dr. Eric and his staff made me feel special. Right from the start they explained every step of treatment to me and even diagnosed an injury I had not reported yet.
Initially I was being seen for carpal tunnel in my right hand but by watching my mannerisms and range of motion Dr. Eric noticed that I also had carpal tunnel in my left hand. When he asked me about it I told him I had not reported it yet because I didn’t want to be labeled a complainer. In fact, after thorough testing, we learned that my left hand injury was even more severe than my right.
I’ve been back at work for 3 weeks now and the pain has not returned. Dr. Eric and his staff taught me so much about how to work out my hand and build muscle. I know that if I continue doing the workouts on my own, I can prevent my injury from returning.
The care and attentiveness to detail that Dr. Eric and the entire staff provided makes me say their service was excellent!!! I would definitely recommend it to everyone who will listen!
I have been coming here for about two weeks to treat lower back pain. All of the therapists are caring and friendly. The environment is upbeat and welcoming. They offer cupping and tens therapy after completing exercises. They also text you a day before your appointment as reminder.
I can always count on Lorin and his team at Marketplace Physical Therapy in Redlands to relieve the pain in my lower back and hips. With their Hypervolt massager, tens unit and heat coupled with their deep tissue manipulation I am walking out way better than I walked in!!! This place deserves more stars! Thanks Lorin and team!
This is the best place to go for physical therapy!! Everybody is friendly and really care about their clients. I’ve suffered with shoulder pain for a really long time and because of that haven’t been able to progress with my weight training, my back muscles were always weak and small. With the help of minor corrections made by Dr. Eric and Kasey I’ve seen so much progress in my back and shoulder muscles. Can’t thank them enough for not only ending years of pain but helping me transform my body to the shape I want it to be!! Thanks guys!!
The staff here is amazing and very dedicated to patients. They actually care about my progress and well being as well as other patients (based on my observation). I have never been pushed too hard as to result in further injury (which I have experienced in another physical therapy session for different injury) but I am seeing results in my mobility. Hailey is awesome. She’s experienced, professional, and caring.
I was a patient at Marketplace Physical Therapy; although it was a challenge initially because of my injury, they did a wonderful job working with me. Kudos to Hailey, Bailey, and Mylaja. These 3 are excellent, patient-centered and very professional. It was great working with them in my path to wellness. Thank you, ladies, you all are “gems” to your organization and I appreciate all you all done for me.
This is Marisha Vandenberg, Kaili’s mom. She just finished up her PT with you and your staff and I just wanted you to see what you all helped her accomplish this past weekend! Without her playing for the past 3 months for pre and post surgery recovery, her team fell in rank down to almost Division 4. This was her very first tournament back, and she kicked butt! She said that she only occasionally felt like it was sore if she landed funny after a jump, but as you can see, she was killing it!
She and her team did so well, they placed 4th overall in one of the most competitive tournaments in the nation! This earned them a bid to the Junior Olympics which gives them a pass into an invite/earn only division!!! This is a HUGE accomplishment!!! At this tournament of over 260 teams, only 7 teams earn a bid!
Please share with your staff as well!!! Because of your dedication to her strengthening and healing, she was not only able to accomplish her goal of being back in time for this tournament, but she was a key player in helping her team earn this bid!
Thanks again! I will be singing your praises!!!
“My experience at Marketplace Physical Therapy, and Wellness Center was extraordinary. One of the things I love the most about this center is that it is not your typical therapy environment. The open treatment area and people working and talking together make the experience warm and inviting. From the moment you walk in Jessica and Felisha make you welcome. Through the whole therapy session you feel relaxed and at ease.
If only every medical office was like this with regard to therapists. I have had the pleasure of being treated by Megan, Michaela, James, and Matt . I have found them all to be extremely talented and caring professionals dedicated to giving their all ALL to every patient and rightfully expecting it in return.
It is not going to be easy, so we need to be pushed to move out of our comfort zone. Never once did I feel like I was skimping on my treatment. In fact I found it to beyond thorough and was always amazed at how much Dr. Steve and all the staff taught me during my sessions.
They always do a great job and I am thankful to have them in my corner.
Thank you for helping me recover.”
“Hope & encouragement are key to patient recovery…My doctors offered me NONE, just more drugs with no hope of recovery. I did not concur and requested Physical Therapy, which led me to Marketplace (Redlands). The 1st thing that struck me was the warmth of the reception, they were very kind & cheerful. I was in awe of the comprehensive 1st assessment appointment.
Dr. Loren really listened to my concerns, hopes, and agreed with me that I could reach my goal of walking unassisted again. After only 12 sessions with him, Dr. Ashley and Trevor & the team, I was able to walk 20 feet unassisted and cut down my meds with my Primary Care Physician! I truly thank God for Marketplace’s team of experts of body motion. They are the Best, that’s it, that’s ALL!”
“I would like to thank the Marketplace Physical Therapy team for all that they have done for me. I had been wondering about coming to the “Anytime Fitness”gym and when I received my referral to Marketplace after my injury, I found out it was located inside the gym I wanted to join.
I’m a recovering drug addict 7 months clean from my injury, but when I started coming to Marketplace I had more of a desire to stay clean! Now I feel a part of a community of people who really do care about my well-being. Marketplace is my safe haven, and now I’m officially a member of Anytime Fitness! Thank you for everything that you do.”
“This place is like a second home to me, the staff are truly caring and nice, they explain things that are most understandable when I need to know what is needed for the reason why I am here. I’ve been here for a couple of weeks and I don’t want to leave! It’s a very relaxing atmosphere and I love it. I would recommend this place to family and friends. Awesome place for workouts and therapy.”
“Rosalyn is very professional and helpful. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to her job and always greets me with a smile. When the printer was down, she made sure my receipts were emailed and always does great scheduling my appointments.”
“Hi, my name is Dahlia Ramirez, I just want to thank all of you for the new life I have. I was always in pain. Pain used to be on the back of my neck and it was constant. The doctor was really concerned because my blood pressure was always high. She asked me one day if I had a lot of stress at home because the blood pressure meds were not working. I said no, but my neck still hurt all of the time. So she sent me here and it was like a miracle. You really changed my life. I went to a chiropractor for years to no avail. But you have been a beautiful blessing in my life.”
“Very happy & thankful for all of the time & work the therapists have invested in helping me heal my injury! They are all very knowledgeable & will take the time to make sure that they are doing all that they can to help you! They are all very nice & super funny! You are in good hands with them.”
“Hi my name is Rosa. I want to share my experience with everyone that goes to Marketplace. This place is the right place to be, all the people that work there make you feel comfortable. Believe me! They’re very nice, caring and kind! They work hard to make you feel like home and to get well of course. I’m happy to refer people who have physical injuries. And with my experience having hurt myself, they know exactly what I need. I’ve recovered in a short time, I didn’t expect that they were going to help me so quick! I want to thank Matthew Mielak, Michaela, Gabby, and James. His invention of the Monster Walks always kills me, which is good I really appreciate it! Thanks to everyone!”
“Hello, I’m Ken. I came here a year ago with a rotator cuff injury. Loren Middag dove right in, and I improved immediately. Everyone here is professional and friendly.
My shoulder is much better, I actually just come in to say hello to everyone now and see how they are doing. I care about these people. That is the impression they left on me. I recommend this facility to anyone who needs physical therapy. I feel like a part of a family.”
“Since I began coming to Marketplace Wellness, I have experienced more mobility and less chronic pain. The combination of strengthening exercises and pin point massages have helped me cope and be productive when I’d otherwise be immobile and in tremendous pain.
The staff is another incentive to come to Marketplace. From the front desk, therapists, aides, and Dr. Brent, your are made to feel welcomed. Always friendly and upbeat makes all off the hard work fun!! Forever Thankful!”
“After having knee surgery, I researched local therapy facilities. Marketplace had good reviews and the facility was what I was looking for. After my consultation with Dr. McGann, I was impressed with his knowledge of my type of injury and his treatment plan. Staff and Therapist are professional and you’re like family.
What I like is how the facility is connected to a gym. They explain how to properly use equipment and are proficient in any type of injury. They explain the pains, how they are caused and what I need to prevent it. Dr. McGann and staff work on building your strength and getting you better with the up to date equipment and techniques. I truly recommend MPT to friends and family.”
“I have been coming to Marketplace Therapy for like 7 months and I really love this place. They are so helpful and very kind. I Recommend this place to anyone who is looking for therapy. They spend quality time with you and give the best massages. Thank you for all your service and great help, all of you are such a great team.”
“I’ve been coming to Marketplace Physical Therapy on and off for 3 years. I started coming due to severe pain in my neck and shoulder blade area. I could barely stand to put my arm down, it would get spasms, and terrible pain. The Therapists here at Marketplace almost immediately knew how to relieve the pain. The reason I continue to come is due to stress and maintenance. Every Therapist I have had here is very educated as to how to relieve the pain and ongoing tightness in my neck and shoulders. I would recommend Marketplace to anyone in any type of pain or in need of therapy due to any injury or medical condition.”
“Just a note to let Michael know how grateful I am to be able to be a part of the Metabolic Program. I am beginning to lose weight and that is something I couldn’t seem to do without the help I am getting with this program. My diabetes is under control and that makes me very happy. The Healthy Options and Portions along with recipes give you a lot to choose from. I especially like the protein shakes. The best part for me is stepping on the scale to see I have lost another pound or two during the week. So please let Michael know how much I appreciate the opportunity he has afforded to me!”
“I am very happy with all the crew team, they are very caring and always full of smiles. They motivate me on the exercise, the best I’ve ever seen too. Rosalyn is always with a smile, and knows my name by heart when I walk in. She says “Hi Sherri!”-I love that. Gabby is a very sweet girl, very caring. Matt is the Best. Michaela is very caring and the best too. Make sure you let them know! A job well done. And Dr. Steve, that’s why I come back every year.”
“The program is very helpful because of all the various tool’s that it provides; such as the meal plans, along with all the important workouts. The accountability part of the program is the main part for me- Mitzi a.k.a Teacher that is so very important! Mitzi’s constant positive encouragement and outlook really makes me want to be successful. She is a great component of the Marketplace & Wellness Metabolic program!!!!
Let me start by saying, I love food! I’m a mother of 4 at 33, with the youngest being 1 year old. I started my health transformation early march which included the expertise of the Metabolic Wellness Program with Mitzi. Unfortunately due to insurance issues and changes I wasn’t able to continue with the program as planned, but despite that, I incorporated the education and suggestions from Mizi. learning to listen to your body to figure out what it needs, and water intake has changed my life! I’ve learned to cut down obvious “bad food habits” and replaced my daily coffee regimen with a “protein coffee” and that in its self has helped me with trimming and weight loss. Of course staying active as best I can and “not depriving or skipping meals” as Mitzi warned was not healthy is also part of my journey. I have learned not to focus on numbers instead changed my focus on how I feel. I’m more energized, able to do my daily routines without feeling exhausted or moody. I want to add, it does feel great to fit into those favorite jeans from 2 sizes ago and I’m watching the inches go too! If I can do it, anyone can
