Rebecca Escambia County School District

After a knee injury, I gained weight and my blood pressure began to spike.

Melody Sheetz

Over the years, my weight increased, peaking at 247 pounds. I was ashamed to have my picture taken.

I was at my heaviest. I hated how I felt and it was hard to do the things I loved.

I ate mostly fast food and desserts, and if I didn’t eat consistently throughout the day, I felt shaky and weak.

I have Type 2 Diabetes and needed help managing my condition. I did not know how to eat a diabetic diet and despite walking regularly, my weight and overall health were not improving.

Dawn Lexington County

I had terrible stomach pain - it was so intense that I was unable to eat and didn’t have enough energy to walk from one place to another.
