I wasn’t happy with the way I looked or felt. I was tired, got winded climbing steps, and my clothes didn’t fit properly. After completing the necessary question-naires and a biometric screening, I downloaded my MyHealth Report from the Marathon eHealth Portal. When I saw the scores, I was concerned. I knew I needed to lower my weight and adopt a clean eating lifestyle immediately.
As I considered where to start, a coworker’s body transformation became my motivation. He worked with a health coach at our onsite health center. I decided if he could do it, so could I, and so I began my journey at the Sargento Health & Wellness Center.
I now work with Katie Henning, health coach, and the support and accountability have been priceless. From the very beginning, she encouraged me to seek out what a healthy lifestyle looks like for me. She cares about me, listens, and empowers me to believe in myself. Our connection is genuine and compassionate. With Katie’s help, I have learned how to set realistic goals and have implemented a new exercise routine and healthy eating habits.
My husband, adult children, and friends have all taken notice and are inspired. My husband has also joined Katie in his health journey. Coworkers ask what changes I have made and want me to share my recipes. It feels great to come full circle and now be the motivating factor for my coworkers.
I am six months into my journey and have already seen my biometrics significantly improve. I can’t wait to see what my 2021 numbers are!
