Welcome to our Top Diet Patches website. Whether you were looking for us or just stumbled upon our site, it was probably because you are looking for help with your weight. You might be where each of us once was. And by that I mean, overweight and unhappy about it.
Yes, we all know what it feels like to be overweight. We were all carrying more weight than we wanted to, which led to a variety of negative feelings ranging from depression to lack of self esteem to lack of energy with which to enjoy life.
The good news is that we found a way to lose weight and get healthier, and we are now at that stage of trying to maintain our weight loss. Along the way there were successes and many failures before we found a weight loss plan that worked.
What we discovered after trying all sorts of pills, exercise routines, crazy milkshakes and the like, was that there is a really easy, no-nonsense way to get help with weight loss. For us, that way was with a weight loss patch.
By now you might be wondering just who “we” are. Well, we aren’t famous or anything like that. We are just a group of friends and family members who decided to band together in our battle against our weight. We called ourselves the “weight warriors”.
We decided to support each other through the trials and tribulations of getting to our desired weights. It is amazing how much easier it is when you are part of a team working together.
Knowing what each of us went through before we found success, we decided to share our stories with anyone who was interested. So, before we go any further, allow us to introduce ourselves:
My name is Katherine, but my friends call me “Kat”. I am 30 years old and I work as a writer for a magazine. As a result, I do most of the writing on this website.
I was so frustrated trying to find useful and accurate information on the Internet that would help me lose weight, that once I found success with my weight loss I proposed to our team that we create a website to share what we learned and provide a forum for other people like us.
Hence, TopDietPatches.com was created.
I am happy to report that I have lost 25 pounds with the support of the “weight warriors”. I don’t think I would have been this successful without the support of my team.
I know that I will never be a thin person, but I am much healthier and happier now that I am 25 pounds lighter. My current goal is to maintain this weight, so that on the day I turn 40 I weigh the same as I do today!
I am David and I am Kat’s younger brother. I am 28 years old and work for a large financial institution. Like Kat I have struggled with my weight all my life, and working long hours in an office doesn’t give me much time for exercising or healthy meals.
When Kat told me she was forming a team to work together to lose weight I figured I didn’t have anything to lose but a few pounds. I wasn’t sure this would work any better than anything else I had tried, but it was worth a shot, especially if I could learn some skills that would help me maintain a healthy weight.
Boy was I wrong! Through the support of the “weight warriors” I have been able to change my diet, start exercising, and I have lost 12 pounds. I am now a respectable 170 pounds, and I feel great.
Hi, I’m Elizabeth. I am almost 26, and Katherine is my best friend. I also happen to be a computer “geek” and website designer, so when Katherine asked me to be involved in this project I just couldn’t say no.
Actually, I needed to lose a few pounds myself, so I joined the team.
Being a part of the “weight warriors” and learning about various techniques that either work or do not work for weight loss was very helpful for me in designing the site.
More than anything though, I wanted to support Katherine and help her achieve her goal of creating a website to help people lose weight. She really wanted to make it easier to find good information so that other people didn’t have to endure some of the same struggles she did.
In the process of working on this I did lose 7 pounds. More than anything, I have learned some techniques that will help me maintain this new weight for the long term, while living a healthy lifestyle.
My name is Amy and I just turned 31 years old. I know Katherine from back when we were in high school. We have both struggled with our weight since that time, so when Kat told me about this team she was building to support each other through weight loss, I immediately said I wanted to be a part of it.
As a physical therapist I need to be fit and able to work with my clients.
I also should be a healthy weight to set a good example.
Unfortunately I wasn’t either of those things for many years. Sure, I had tried to lose weight a number of times since high school, but nothing ever worked for very long.
That is why I am so thrilled with the results of our “weight warriors” project. I have lost 37 pounds so far. I still need to lose a few more pounds to reach my ideal weight, but the fact that I am at this point would not have happened without the group effort and Kat’s tenacity to find reliable weight loss information.
I am Michelle and I am Elizabeth’s mother.
When she told me about this website she was working on for Katherine, and how this group of friends was working together as a team to lose weight, I thought how great it would have been to have a support group like that when I was younger and trying to lose weight.
Elizabeth kept telling me that I should join the “weight warriors” but I was sure that I wouldn’t have much success losing weight at my age.
I had been overweight for so long that I had begun to think that I had no hope of changing it.
After repeated urging from my daughter I finally relented and decided to give it a try. That turned out to be a really smart move on my part. Guess what? You CAN lose weight at any age, and I am proof of it.
So far I have lost 15 pounds and I feel great. I still want to lose another 5 pounds just to give myself a little room for fluctuations.
It also turns out that my age was a benefit rather than a hindrance, as I was able to share some life experience and wisdom with the younger folks.
I am so proud of all of us for the success we have achieved to date with our weight loss. And I am really proud to be a part of this website to share our experiences with others who are trying to change their lives by losing weight.
