It’s been a complete life changer for me.
I started taking spin classes at Cox Monett Hospital. After a few weeks, I wasn’t losing any weight and Nancy, the instructor, mentioned the Journeys from Home program. I didn’t know what I was getting into, but I made a commitment to complete the program.
I did the homework – wrote down what I was eating and completed the activity form and faxed it to her.
I’d use the Wi-Fi where I work to Skype and then I would weigh myself.
The program teaches you to be mindful about what you eat and Nancy holds you accountable. I also learned you have to watch what you eat and you have to exercise.
I got frustrated because here I was doing all of this exercise and not losing any weight. I realized I didn’t know how to eat correctly. Under Nancy’s guidance, she gently served me into the right way of eating.
I’ve lost 42 pounds.
When Nancy came up with my weight loss goal, I remember saying to my best friend laughing – “She wants me to lose 42 pounds. That’s a joke.” Then when you finally reach your goal you really just can’t believe it.
Today, I continue to go biking and exercise at Cox Monett Hospital. It’s a commitment.
