The dieters here are so supportive and they really want to see you succeed.
I didn’t have any motivation to lose weight before joining Diet.com, but the Challenge gave me the strength to start my journey, and I’ve actually stayed on track the entire six weeks, Brittany tells Diet.com in the testimonial she wrote at the end of the Challenge.
