At Age Management Center of New England, our Healthy Lifestyle and Fitness program, lead by Nutritionist Kelsey Doyle has helped many men and women achieve their health and fitness goals. Check out this amazing story from our patient, Charlotte:

“To whom it may concern,

I have had the pleasure of working with Kelsey for almost three months now. Although that’s not a great deal of time, it is all that’s necessary for someone of her caliber to make an incredible and lasting impact in your life.

I met Kelsey at one of the lowest points in my life, heavier than I had ever been and feeling incredibly discouraged about the possibility of breaking this yo-yo dieting, gain weight, and then loose it cycle. I was at a crossroads. I knew I needed to change my lifestyle to be healthier for my three children. I was at a point of such low energy and being tired all the time. I knew this was unacceptable and I wanted to give my children a better example. I came to her with high hopes but wondering if my weight loss goals were ever going to be something I could achieve.

What truly sets Kelsey and this program apart from any other is the constant support, understanding, flexibility, and most of all her ability to impart an empathetic view into your story… how you got to this place, and how she is going to help you get back to the happiness and good health that you deserve. I have never felt like just another number at another doctor’s office. Kelsey has taken the time to get to know me and my life and formulated a plan that fits my needs.

Something that often inhibits my continued healthy lifestyle is the inability to find someone with the flexibility to meet the needs of my crazy life. Kelsey has bent over backward, constantly changing her schedule to meet the requirements of me and my two-year-old son (who accompanies me to every appointment). She graciously welcomes us inside hyper-aware that my time is short as is the temper of my toddler, we chat and create a plan for that week, many times through the cries of a tired baby. Never once have I felt a burden or shamed as many times happens in these settings. As a busy mom you know how incredibly rare these people are and how thankful you are when you find one.

I do believe that Kelsey and her program will be the turning point for me and my constant up and down weight gain and loss. I finally feel that I am on the track to lifelong success and it is all because of the tools, information, and kindness Kelsey has shown me. I never ever thought I would be the person who enjoyed going in to be weighed once a week, or the person who was honest about my food intake and how I am sticking to my diet and exercise plan. Now, I can honestly say I look forward to each weekly visit. I have learned so much about myself, what my body needs, and how to continue on this wonderful track I have been set on. I am so thrilled to be continuing my work with Kelsey and I can’t wait to see where it takes me.

My many thanks to Kelsey and her team,

Charlotte C.”
