The program includes low-gylcemic-index meal plans, daily journaling, an educational DVD, a professional and encouraging support system, helpful reading materials, nutritional supplements for weight management, and access to an interactive website to track your progress.

By checking in with a Transitions Lifestyle System advisor regularly, clients feel more accountable for their daily choices and tend to see positive results. Depending on your chosen location, you may also receive one Groupon bonus:
Theodora’s Beautiful Beads, also known as Bead Attitudes, is a quaint shop bursting with quality beads and stringing supplies. A cascading collection of Czech and old German glass (ranging from $2 to $35 per strand) lines the colorful walls, along with a panoply of seed beads and freshwater pearls ($10–$15). Also available is a large selection of specialty beads and art glass, as distinguished and intriguing as a rogue gun-slinging butler. Supplies are neatly assembled to inspire interesting compositions and exquisite designs. Beaders also can feast their fingers on an extensive collection of stringing materials, as well as a treasure trove of chain, sterling, silver plate, and copper (ranging from $1.25 to $30 per foot). The staff at Theodora’s is dedicated to bead-craft and is more than happy to offer advice about project difficulties and expound on the benefits of a bead-based economy.
Clover culls clothing from top designer brands with the intent to provide both casual and upscale apparel and accessories that run the gamut from jeans and T-shirts to designer dresses and handbags. Build a fashionable and sawdust-free foundation with comfy undergarments from Hanky Panky ($16) before sliding into an equally comfortable solid-color tank from James Perse ($44). Naked wrists are endowed with a bit of kai perfume ($44) before being encircled by a bauble from the rotating selection of jewelry ($55+) or complemented by a boldly colored leather Hobo wallet ($75). Designer jeans ($154+) go with almost any upper-body garment, and a Tolani scarf ($85) adds a bit of warmth to prolonged hunts for ice cream after impulse-buying a walk-in freezer.
The garment-charmers at Lipstick Lounge coax their stylish selection of new and gently loved attire and jewelry from local artists, name-brand designer depots, and their clientele's own closets to create a unique fashion potpourri. Designer brands pop up like couture whack-a-moles, and the latest ethereal crop ranges from C&C summer tops ($18) to chic Prada sunglasses ($140) for customers with dangerously bright futures. Match a Lily Pulitzer skirt ($30) with a summery top from Nanette Lepore ($28), and accessorize the snazzy look with a Coach purse ($60) or costume jewelry (under $25). The Lipstick Lounge accepts clothing by appointment only, and requires items to be clean, hole-free, and house-trained before finding them a new owner.
The certified ski techs at Sun and Ski Sports restore spunk to worn snow gliders while outfitting patrons for the slopes with a full range of brand-name ski equipment and apparel.
