“My excess weight was causing a ton of joint pain. Getting in and out of my car, tying my shoes, clipping my toenails and putting lotion on my body—it all took so much extra effort! Plus, being only 10 pounds lighter than my husband was heartbreaking to me. In this program, I used a journal to keep myself accountable and weighed all of my food. I also followed an exercise routine five days a week that was made up of 30 minutes of cardio and another 30 minutes of circuit training. I learned how to focus on the day-to-day tactics to keep the weight off instead of just thinking about the big picture. My life has changed in so many ways. I never realized how much my weight bothered me until I lost it, and now I can’t believe I lived with it for so long. I feel like I’m in my 20’s again! I went from a size 16 to a 2 and I’ve completed two 5Ks (and can’t wait to do another!).”
- Kelly H., 46 years old, Warren
Carrying around extra weight doesn’t just impact self-esteem and confidence, it can also lead to joint pain, trouble performing daily activities and an increased risk for serious health issues like heart disease and diabetes. But losing weight can be incredibly hard—a factor that helps explain why almost 35 percent of Michiganders are overweight and 30 percent are obese.
