Live Healthy Texas Success Stories

Walk 5 miles mowing yard

I just wanted to thank you for being a part of the Live Healthy Iowa program.  I started the program at the beginning and am still doing it.  I joined Weight Watchers at the same time as this program started and have been successful thus far.  When the Live Healthy Iowa program ended I have lost a total of  29 pounds.  As of today’s date I am glad to say I have lost 42.  The Live Healthy Iowa program gave me the motivation to start and continue.  I cannot believe how much better I feel.  When I started I had severe back and knee problems and now neither one bother me.  I participated in the Relay for Life on Friday evening in Clarinda, Iowa and walked four miles.  I also push mow my yard on a weekly basis and  according to my pedometer it is equivalent to five miles.  I could have never done this without your program to get me motivated to get started.  I have a doctors appointment on  June 15th and cannot wait for the results of my blood work.   My son is getting married in October and I turn 50 in November and so I have two incentives to continue to take off the pounds.  My first goal is 100 pounds and then we will go from there. 

Again I thank you for this wonderful program..  I also joined the Lt. Governor’s Challenge this week for even more incentive.
