Heather's Success Story
Error loading MacroEngine script (file: BlogPostImage.cshtml)

We are so excited to introduce you to Heather, an alumni of the 20/20 Lifestyles Program who finished in November 2014 and has been working hard at maintenance since that time. 

When did you go through the program: I was in the program from August to November 2014. 

Tell us about how you felt when you started: When I started I was skeptical! I wasn’t sure I would lose that much weight or be able to keep it off. I was really apprehensive about cutting out all sugar and white flour, because desserts and breads are what I loved. I was also reluctant to give up my Diet Coke. I didn’t want to say goodbye to those friends. 

How did you feel when the program ended:  I was impressed by how well the program worked and proud of myself for my accomplishments. The program was so much easier to follow than I thought it would be. Because different food groups are gradually added back in, the diet gets easier over time, unlike most diets which get harder to follow. And once I kicked my sugar habit, I found that I didn’t need it or miss it.

What keeps you excited about the program:  When I see old pictures of me or tried on old clothes that were now huge on me, I recognized the difference. I see that I am a different person now, inside and out, and that makes me see that my new lifestyle is worth it.

What have you learned from your success:  That I can do anything I put my mind to. That all my goals are achievable.

How do you maintain a healthy weight yourself:  The biggest thing for me is meal planning. I have everything planned and ready ahead of time. I know what I’m going to eat almost every day before it happens, so it takes the guess work and last minute decisions out of it. I also don’t like to waste food, so if I know food is prepared at home I am very unlikely to go out to eat on a whim.

How have you surprised yourself or achieved big goals:  I always wanted to be a runner, but I could never run more than 60 seconds. I thought it was a lost cause. At the end of 20/20 I started going to circuit training classes at the ProClub. I love Terry’s Wednesday class! One day I was on the treadmill in class and thought, “What if I just keep running the whole 10 minutes?” And then I did! Now I am training for a half marathon. When I look back, I can’t believe how far I’ve come. 

Anything else you would like to share with readers:  It is totally worth it to change your life and get healthy!

Thank you Heather, we are so excited for what is to come next for you on your health journey!
