Beyond the Scale: Celebrating Small Wins on Your Wellness Journey

TL;DR: At Prescribe FIT, we are passionate about transforming lives through our virtual lifestyle health coaching program. We’ve helped patients lose over 100lbs, reach the ONEderland milestone, and reduce their BMI by as much as 20pts. While weight loss is a significant achievement and goal for many of our patients, our focus extends far beyond the numbers on a scale. Our mission is to build sustainable healthy practices that address the root causes of pain, mobility, other orthopedic issues, and various chronic diseases. In the past year, we’ve witnessed numerous non-scale success stories that highlight the profound impact of living a healthier lifestyle.
