Why I wanted to be healthy started a very long time ago around 2000!
My cholesterol was high enough for my doctor to prescribe me statins. I didn’t want to be on them from all things I had heard, she said I could try to get some weight off but in the meantime The statins would help me. As much as I didn’t want to, I found a Weight Watchers group. I couldn’t believe how many women were in line to sign up! I almost walked away! I’m so grateful to my inner strength that I stayed! I lost 50 lbs in 6 months, got off the statins. Unfortunately I gained most of that back. So over the next 5 years I joined Jenny Craig and heard about SparkPeople from a JC member. I lost another 75 lbs. with the help from both over 2 years.
I haven’t been on any other program except SP for the past 6 years and my cholesterol is good and am only 10 lbs from my goal weight again.
