I was tired of being overweight, I wanted energy. I wanted to better my health. I wanted to feel good about myself. I had tried all those quick fixes and fad diets that you never really stick with and sure I lost a few pounds here and there, only to gain them back. That is until I started seeing Dr. Clarke-Bennett at A Better You in Laurel, MD. I not only have a personal physician but also a supportive friend. Her and the staff encourage and support me to keep going. I can tell she really cares about helping me lose the weight. With her encouragement, I gained the tools I need through behavioral counseling, cutting calories, and avoiding certain foods. Dr. Clarke-Bennett at A Better You is one of the biggest factors to my success. Regular weigh-ins keep me accountable. I eat healthier, I keep calories within a certain range, and understand the consequences of making poor eating choices. I know I am losing weight safely and effectively because Dr. Clarke-Bennett keeps regular track of my muscle and water weight using a Body Composition Analysis scale. Today, I can proudly say I have lost a total of 26 pounds and counting. I have more energy, and boosted my self-esteem. My family and physician have been incredible throughout this journey. I cannot thank Dr. Clarke-Bennett and her staff enough for what they are doing for me. – Mary M.
