Please Note: All comments reprinted directly from Anne Collins Weight Loss and Dieting Forum. To preserve privacy, all identifying names have been removed.

This is a great place for motivitation, support, ideas, etc. I have literally dieted 38 of my 48 years and I HAVE LEARNED MORE IN THE SIX WEEKS SINCE I JOINED THIS GROUP than ever before. Oh, I knew all there was to know about calories, fat grams, carbs, etc. I could write my own book. What I have learned....actually, what I am learning is about self-image, positive attitude, etc. I knew all the physical stuff but here I am learning about the mental part of weight loss. I am finding out that is an essential part of any weight loss program.


...I'm changing my life because of you!! I'm down 41 pounds already but its my attitude I'm really impressed with (my husband too!). Reading the posts on your forum has definitely taught me a new way of thinking - like it's okay to have a bad day and stuff. Usually I am so tense when dieting but now I am so relaxed.... My husband says I must never stop doing what you tell me!!


I see what people mean about this forum being so supportive! I've never been in such a wonderful wonderful wonderful place. I feel I'm surrounded by people just like me, who really want me to succeed. It all stems from Anne herself, but all you guys are so sweet and so caring. I've been 300 pounds for years and I've tried tons of different diets but NOTHING ever like this. I've lost 17 and a half pounds so far but much more important... I really do think I can succeed this time. No more losing and gaining the same 10 pounds! Sorry for the rant, but I just wanted to say thanks to everyone.

Anne Collins Dieting Support Forum

Your weight loss forum is so inspiring!!! Million times better than anything i seen before. i'm on most days and my whole take on dieting is changing... Anne you are some lady. God bless you.


Thought you might like to know I achieved my 60 pound weight loss target today! My husband's email is offline right now, so I wanted to share the good news with someone!! I think your GI Diet is just A-mazing, and your weight loss forum is AWWSOME!!... Your care and support has made all the difference.... I know at 169 pounds I still have more weight to lose, but I'm gonna go for it and see if I can break the 150 barrier - can't believe I'm even saying this - 150!!


Happy days!! This morning I was weighed by my doctor who was "stunned" to see that I had dropped from 212 to 179 in three months. He quizzed me about what I was doing and I told him about your GI diet and your super forum - boy, was he impressed! The sweetest thing is that usually he is so snappy but today he was so nice... Thanks so much for your help and support over the past few months. It's SUCH a reassurance to know you're always there and that I can visit your forum for help when things go wrong......


You want support. We got support. After joining on Mother's Day (I have two grown daughters), I can't believe the thoroughness (is that a word) of this website. The diet plans are absolutely doable. And the encouragement we receive from likeminded people is the best. We have found the "mother ship"!!


I would like to say a really big thanks to everyone!!! Even though I have only been in the program since Monday, I am totally amazed. Everyone is so helpful and upbeat. The inspiration and encouragement that comes from this group is just awesome. Anne, thanks mostly to you for providing all of us with such a great place to cry, gripe and laugh, and maybe solve our problems. My only regret is that I didn't find this site sooner. I hope you all have a great (and healthy) weekend.


In 25 years I've never come across anyone with your warmth and dedication to helping others. Call me a cynic, but I don't expect other people to be interested in me and my weight loss problem. You have changed all that. I've been a member of your program for nearly 6 months and I have lost 54 pounds. I'd rather not say how much I weigh (not yet anyway) but I will say that you personally have inspired me to lose more than any other program I've tried. I think you are awesome, I think your diets and your forum is awesome - you have been a life-changing experience for me and I can't find the words to thank you enough. So I'll just say "thanks".


Anne,
Thankyou for your reply and for caring. I really feel that you're sincere and help others with their weight loss battles. My blood work and fitness tests have all come back EXCELLENT. I feel great. I've got 20 more pounds to go. I've loss 20 already. I'm on a roll. Thanks again for caring about us all!

This forum is such a great support, it gives us all a chance to chat about successes and struggles and whatever you're going through you can talk about and get support, on good days and bad. all in all its a low key, realistic, no gimmicks plan. work hard, make good choices, have a plan for how to overcome bad choices on bad days, work together and track your progress.


Even tho I have only been a member a short time myself (3 weeks today) I can assure you that this place is just great. There is so much support and inspiration, it makes you want to do good. I had never posted on any kind of message board or forum until this one. Now, I can hardly wait to check the new messages every day.


Even after I lose all the weight I need to I'm staying here because of the great friends I've made. It's like a second family and so much encouragement.


This is place is unlike any other and that's a good thing! Best part you don't have to limit yourself on only one diet, you can change if you want and then change back; until you find the best fit for you!


Such positive attitudes really help me a lot. I print some of them out and during the week I look at them and it helps me to know that I'm not the only one.

I have dieted forever, and have tried to include my family in it, but not like this. Anne gave me a great piece of advice and that was not to change everything overnight. It's really working and I can't believe how lucky I was to stumble across this site.


Thanks to you at least in that area (diet) i do feel confident. You have helped me more than you can know.


I must say I'm doing fantastic! I love your program. So far I've lost 20 lbs in 8 weeks. And it's so easy to follow. I won't say I don't still get cravings for all the bad things I used to eat but they are getting fewer every day.


I knew something was different when I started this program, this time. It really didn't feel like one of the millions of diets I've been on in the past - it felt healthy, a true change of lifestyle.


I want to thank you for making this site so affordable. With 4 children, our expenses are great and we don't make much money. This site is so great and I'm so happy you're not in the business just to make money.


Found my motivation going this week and reread the "Time to refocus" reasons I gave and I was back on track! This would normally be where I would have given up dieting for a couple weeks but now I'm still on track. Thanks Anne.


Thanks for all your support and encouragement. I feel like I've learned in one month a lifetime's worth of information about having a positive attitude about eating.

Anne, just wanted to let you know how incredibly wise you are. I was hesitating to join your program until after New Year's as I have a Christmas Eve dinner to attend and a party New Year's. You answered everything by just simply stating that a little indulging two days isn't going to matter in the scheme of things, it will only take me a little longer to lose the 10 lbs I have struggled with for a year. Thank you for advice I will never forget. I've already gotten my money's worth...


... thank you for being so accessible, providing input and feedback so readily! This site has been a Godsend for me!


... Anne, you deserve all this credit and more! You have believed in me like no one else and most importantly, you showed me how to believe in myself! You truly are a great lady Anne, even with your busy schedule of clients that you see in your office each week, you still take the time to be here for us whenever we need you. I think of you as more than my nutritionist and weight-loss coach, you are a real friend!


I'm starting to take control of my life... thank you Anne for your clear, no-holds-barred, honest, in-your-face help....It just may have saved my life....really!


This discussion forum has really opened my eyes. To be able to talk to so many other women who are my size (300 pounds) and losing weight, and who are SO supportive... it's such a positive experience. Bless you Anne.


Although, weight loss may never be simple, you've come to the place that will make it simplier than you ever imagined. And the best part for me, you will also learn how to manage it in the future. This is NOT a quick fix, but rather a more permanent solution.


Many will be able to relate to your story. I for one tried LA Weight Loss years ago, but unlike you I actually bought some of the products - talk about stupid! But, like you I learned my lesson - I stopped because I realized like Jenny Craig and so many others, theirs was a short term solution that was not teaching me how to live in the 'real' world. I wanted to tools to manage my weight and Anne Collins gives you that.

Like you, I hate being told what I 'have to do', I would much rather have choices. Perhaps that is why I love Anne Collins - so many different meal plans and so many variations within each. I can work with that!


...so far, using the quickstart recipes man it's easy! like 10 minutes max time i have to be doing stuff so far. and less than 30 minutes total time before my meal is ready! i love these quick start meals! besides, i'm an awful meal planner so i'm glad that anne has those quickstarts - i just mixed and matched some stuff that sounded good. it's awesome! so much better than any other diet i've ever been on! it's day 3 now and i still don't feel like a war prisoner!!!


Thank you, I am so relieved. I feel great. My knees don't hurt anymore after a long day and my clothes are definitly loose. I was just worried that it was too good to be true.


I just wanted to let you know, I really love this forum! It's helped me realize that tomorrow really is another day..even later in the day is a different part of the day. So if i'm bad this morning that doesn't mean it's ok to be bad tonight! I think a big part of my previous problems was that when i ate something bad i just said oh wel i'll start again tomorrow and badly the rest of the day....not anymore!!!


Thanks Anne. This program really does work. You are providing a great service to so many of us, and I thank you.


I lowered my cholesterol from 250 to 195 by exercise and eating better (thanks to Anne), Best wishes to everyone, your support is heartwarming!

Wow! I just inspired myself. That's why I love this site - it truly makes you stop and think. I've had many lightbulb moments here!


For years I've gone up and down weight but there has been one weight (16 pounds above my target) I've never managed to get below and everytime I got near it I'd panic thinking I just can't get below that, leave the diet go and head back up again. I broke that barrier 1 month ago for the first time in years ... thanks Anne.


I just wanted to tell you I enjoy the recipes and diet suggestions I found here and I am losing weight. It is easier every day. less like dieting and more like "how I always eat". I've also found that when I fall into my "old eating habits" of too much sugar, my joints and my arthritis seem to flair up. I've lost 21 pounds so far, and seem to have settled into a pattern of a two pound loss per week. I've very pleased with this, and your tips on motivation made a big difference. Once I focused on why I wanted to loose weight I found the process much simpler. Thanks for your advice and information.


Well, this is my fourth week on the low glycemic diet and I lost 4 pounds. this week. That's a total of 12 pounds since March 8, and I actually feel better. I went to the doctor last week and she reduced my insulin dosages, which is terrific.


My sister has had raves about this and said it is easy to follow if you follow the rules and she has had great success with it. That is the road I am going to travel on now too!

For so long I used shame to motivate myself. That's why I check out Anne's motivation tips at least once a day. They are not "shame-based"! They are great touch-stones to make me feel/think that I really can loose this weight and feel good about myself through the whole process.


I've only just joined but am already impressed, above all by the ATTITUDE everyone has, including Anne, who seems to live in the real world, unlike many other diet promoters, and is very supportive indeed.


I want to tell you that I love your site! It is so smart and witty. I was informed and entertained! Thank you!


...you could not have picked a better place than this site. The GI plan is great to follow, I think it is flexable too. For the first time ever, I am truly losing my sweet tooth!!! This has never ever happened to me. I feel very satisfied and for a long period of time.
