Weight Loss Testimonials

"I started this program November 3, 2015 at a whopping 189 pounds and pre diabetic. Today March 31, 2017 I am 149.8.and free of pre diabetes. I didn't think that I was going to lose weight due certain medications I take. As I followed this program to the tee and seen the scale go down daily I was amazed. You can lose the unwanted weight and learn how to eat healthy for life with the tools provided. I look at food in a totally different way, I think and analyze food before I make a choice. I am forever indebted to this program. I will live the rest of my life this way. Dedicated, Discipline and Determined to live a healthy life!"

"One thing that's true about the camera is that it doesn't lie. When I looked at photos of myself or in the mirror, I didn't recognize the person looking back. I had ballooned to a size I had never been before. My feet and knees hurt; I got winded going up one flight of stairs, none of my clothes fit, I was exhausted all the time and I was cranky. This is not the person I once knew. New Life Wellness & Weight Loss helped me get back to my old self, quickly, effectively, and in a healthy, manageable way. I lost 45 pounds on 2 program rounds with New Life Wellness & Weight Loss and another 25 pounds just by adopting better, smarter eating habits."

"Started NM February 2015 and lost 35 lbs. Got all my numbers into the green zones, dropped my metabolic age, and learned how to eat and what to eat for MY body. Have had no real trouble maintaining in the 2+ years and have stayed within a few pounds of my weight set point. LOVE my new eating habits and how I feel. This program has been a life-changer for me, and as I move into my mid-50s, I've never felt better! Many thanks to Dr. Frank, the Watchung, NJ staff and ALL who have brought us this program!"

"Started on the New Life Wellness & Weight Loss plan at the end of May 2016 and the diet melted the pounds off. I absolutely loved the staff at the Watchung, NJ office. The team there has been so supportive and entheusiastic. I always enjoy going in for my weigh ins and feel like I am visiting friends when I go. I have lost 67 pouns in two rounds and have already told the team I will be back in May for my last round. I absolutely love the program and I will say I have been on diets all my life and never with any success or results like I have had here. Since losing the weight I have been able to stop my cholesterol and asthma medications."

"Well, after trying many programs and diets I finally hit a wall, turned 50 late last year and I knew with two young children I better try something knew. Dr Frank Donaruma, my chiropractor started providing New Life Wellness & Weight Loss in his office and I thought, why not? Just after the first 40 days phase I can say I have lost 45lbs. I have to admit being a healthcare professional myself, at first I was skeptical, but I FEEL FANTASTIC! I feel so good that after my 3 week reset phase, I will be jumping back in to finish this weight loss, and get back to the weight I was when I was in college."

"About a year ago, (Easter Sunday of 2015 to be exact), I embarked on a journey that changed so much. After going through the life insurance process with my wife, and having my quoted rate double because of the abnormal activity of my pancreas and liver function, I reached my breaking point. 239 pounds..... A number I hadn't seen on the scale in over 15 years had come back to haunt me once again. Suddenly, my priorities hit me in the face, harder than what I probably stuffed my face with the night before for dinner. How could I expect to lead my family, and teach my son how to live a full life, while surviving on diet energy drinks and Pepsi Max by the caseload? My energy levels were at an all time low, and I could not believe that I had reached this point. Instead of feeling bad for myself and eating a slice of cake, as I normally would, I decided to do something about it. I walked into the office of Dr. Frank Donaruma, not knowing what to expect. But I refused to leave without making a change. So I signed up that Thursday, and decided to wait until Sunday for my load day, so I could kick it in gear on Monday. 40 days later, I was 47 pounds down, and it felt GOOD. Made it through phases 3,4 & 5 with minimal pushback, and wound up at a steady 195 as I finished the program. It's funny though, how life doesn't stop just because you want to get healthy. I still had my same responsibilities, and busy schedule that I needed to maintain. As a matter of fact, you could even say that things have gotten even busier since then. But I never gave up. This past January, my wife and I decided to join a gym together. Leaving the house at 4:45 AM every isn't as hard as it sounds, it's harder. But again, this was bigger than an alarm clock. Through that program, with diet and exercise, I've gone on to lose another 12 pounds, and still feel great a YEAR LATER! Just yesterday though, after church, I was walking through our local mall, and I stumbled on this advertisement. Looking up at this picture brought back a lot of memories. Sometimes it seems like time is at a standstill, but I can honestly say that this past year flew by, and I'm so grateful for the changes that happened in that amount of time. I guess I'm writing this to encourage someone who may be on the verge of giving up..... DON'T. Remember why you started in the first place, put your head down, and keep moving forward. Most people today look at that before picture and say, "I don't remember you that big." Well, I do. And I'm planning on leaving that guy in my rear view mirror for years to come. So take every day one step at a time, and leave that person behind. Before you know it, people will be saying the same to you. And if they don't, who cares? You don't do it for them, you do it for you!"

"Words can't express what New Life Wellness & Weight Loss has done for me! Summary… As a former athlete, I have always desired to stay in shape but as I have gotten older it has been increasingly difficult to stay in shape. when the New Life Wellness & Weight Loss program came along, I was skeptical, I have to say, but I figured I would give it a try and see if it could do something other programs haven't done. Well, it has been nothing short of amazing! I went from 231 pounds to 200 pounds in just 40 days, without starving myself and with eating food I loved! The New Life Wellness & Weight Loss team advised and encouraged me along the way, helping me maximize my goals."

"I had a pleasurable New Life Wellness & Weight Loss experience. With the encouragement and support of the staff I was able to obtain my health and fitness goals through the program.

- Chris G.

"This has been the best experience of my life. I have learned soo much about food and how and what works best with my body. Too bad it took 50 years to get it. But I am thankful none the less. Yes, its a process, a lifestyle change and can be hard work. I did the program through Thanksgiving and Christmas. Truly will power was a challenge, but I was so focused on the goal and didn't stray. I wanted to get and feel healthy, the weight loss was just a bonus. But if we are determined to correct and fix what we have done to our bodies, it is so worth it!!!"

"I have always struggled with my weight. When I finally topped out of 205, I turned to prayer for help. I was able to take some weight off myself, but the scales stopped moving. I was very frustrated and starting to climb back up. Then I found New Life Wellness & Weight Loss. My doctor was able explain why I had had hit a wall. I did the program over 2 years ago and I so happy I did! I went from an 12 to 4 on the program. But more importantly, I am no longer pre-diabetic, my blood pressure is lower and my cholesterol levels are perfect! I have never felt this good! I thank God for this program and my awesome doctor!"
