Permanent lifestyle changes key to weight loss

Quite often, it takes a struggle to spark change.
Karen Nassib’s struggle was mainly physical, and her turning point was a road trip with her son’s high school marching band that included lots of walking and hauling equipment.
The exercise wore her out, and it shouldn’t have, she thought. Nassib, of Plainfield, who is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 245 pounds, decided it was time to do something new to lose weight.
“My problem was that I didn’t eat a lot, but what I did eat, obviously, was horrendous,” said Nassib, 63, a mother of four, including a 12-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son.
She wanted to be able to keep up with her youngest kids’ busy schedules. Nassib had tried unsuccessfully to lose weight through the years. Now she was ready to commit to a serious regimen. Nassib, who works in the scheduling department at Edward Hospital, decided to try the Edward Medical Weight Loss Clinic. She started the program in December and is already about 40 pounds lighter.
