20 Tons!

24 10 2011

Yes, that’s correct, since the PEIA Weight Management Program began in 2004, a total of 20 tons (40,000 pounds) have been shed by the approximately 4,700 participants that have ever enrolled in the program. All of you current and former participants reading this should be extremely proud of what you have accomplished in the program, and beyond. You are not only having an impact on yourself, but on so many of the people around you – family, friends, co-workers – whether you know it or not. Be proud and continue to stay vigilant on your quest for improved health.

I hope I’m able to add another ton to the stats.

No — I know I don’t have that much to lose but when it can feel like that sometime.

I was pretty down — but I’m feeling kind of up right now. Feeling pretty grateful to the program — the phone conferences, the reduced gym rate and the dietician have all helped get me where I am today.
