Success Stories from the National Weight Control Registry

The National Weight Control Registry has tracked more than 5,000 people to better understand how they maintained weight losses of 30 pounds or more. The Registry is now in its 10th year and is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The ABC television show Good Morning America recently highlighted some of the findings from the Registry.
