“I have been overweight my whole life, and obese my entire adult life. Three years ago, my church posted a picture from our Ladies Christmas party and I was horrified by my picture. I knew I was overweight, but it was that picture that woke me up to just how bad it was. I made up my mind that I had to do something, and it needed to be a lifestyle change, not just a quick fix.
I started eating a healthy Ketogenic diet and began losing weight. I was so unhealthy and out of shape that it took losing weight for about three months before I even felt like I could begin adding exercise to this effort. I searched gyms, but I wanted more than what most gyms had to offer. I needed help with the battle I had ahead of me.
I became a member at the Hancock Wellness Center and immediately knew I had made the right choice. Jonie was the trainer who helped me learn the exercise machines and helped set up a workout program that even I could do. The staff has always been available to give advice and help to get the most out of my workouts. Not just that, but they were my cheerleaders along the way, encouraging me to reach my goals.
Fast forward to today, I am 339lbs down, and I have reached my goal weight. I am now striving to be the best version of myself that I can be, knowing HWC staff will be there along the way to facilitate my success. Because of the amazing support given here at HWC, I am in the process of taking the NASM course to become a Certified Nutrition Coach so that I have the knowledge to maintain my weight, as well as help others in the same ways I have been helped!”
