But now they can see a dramatic change with their weight loss," she continued, adding that "We try and adjust their diet ac- cording to their metabolism." The key to an individual's weight loss, believes Wendy, is the daily counseling that each of her charges receives. "While their dieting they're learning behavior modification. When they reach their projected goal for los- ing weight, we guide them while they're adding new foods to their diet. We call it our maintenance program." Her daily counseling sessions, six days a week, may last only ten minutes after the initial consultations "These people are encouraged to eat. except I try to plan a diet for them where they know what they can eat and how much of it. and they can still go out and eat at restaurants." Unlike many diet programs that stress a lot of exercise, Wendy feels that half an hour of daily exercise is sufficient. "It doesn't have to be anything of a heavy-duty nature," she emphasized. "Bicycling, swimming, or even walking will do the job, provid- ed they follow their diet, which is for- mutated for them on an individual basis." Wendy's dieters were unanimous in their enthusiasm for her program. Said Nancy Colbert, "I knew I was much heavier than I should be, and I was worried about my health. When I saw Wendy's ad in the paper I decid- ed to give it a try." The results for Nancy were much the same as for everyone else near- ly 50 pounds lost since last May when the center opened. The best thing about it, she pointed out, was the fact that, "It really wasn't a struggle to lose the weight, because we could see the changes everyday. And Wendy helped us adjust our diet according to our needs and whether anything special was planned." For Lane Donnelly, Wendy's schedule succeeded where others had failed. "This was like a last resort," she confided.

(Photos by Malcolm Ater, Jr.) while I did lose weight with all of them I always ended up putting the weight back 'on." When asked why this particular pro- gram worked for her, Lane laughed and confessed that. "This program is different because it costs money and that's a commitment in itself. You want to see results for your mney." The goal for each individual is to lose about three or four pounds a week. "Wendy is a REAL motivating force, and depending on how we did the day before we either get a pep talk or a chewing out," giggled Lane, who likes the program so much that she now in- tends to lose ten more pounds than she originally planned. Ken Lowe bad his own particular goal in mind. Tipping the scales at 247 pounds in May, Ken wanted to slim down to 2OO pounds by his 40th birth- day, which was last Saturday. Despite missing two weeks of the program when he was on vacation ("I got in trouble for that"), Ken got his birth- day wish by weighing in at a trim 199 pounds, a celebration in itself. "You have to eat to lose weight," he said of the program. "I eat two fruits a day / and balance my meals because I don't skip any." Like many other people, Ken remembers trying the popular notion of starving one's self to lose weight. "I was on the Stilhman's Water Diet and lost 37 pounds, but I nearly killed myself because I had nothing but water and protein. All I wanted to do was sleep." The results were far more satisfying for Ken this time as he proudly pro- claimed that, "I now feel 25 years younger, and healthy as can be. Maybe Wendy's program can help you the way it's helped so many other people. Certainly if you've ever thought about losing weight, it's worth the price of a phone call to Mar- tinsburg to find out ff Wendy can help you. Call her at 263-0390. Maybe you'll be like Lane Donnelly and say, "I really, truly feel like liv- ing again."
