Hi! My name is Joy Douglas and I Was Ready to be Healthy.
Two and half years ago my weight was way up, my energy was gone, my back hurt constantly and I was unhappy. On top of this, my doctor was after me because my blood pressure, sugars and cholesterol were too high. I wasn't coping well. Often feeling depressed, cranky or sad. I was starting to realize I would only get better if I took control.
My massage therapist recommended Fred; he said, Joy, Fred knows how to help and you can get the support you need.
I thought the usual stuff: "here I go again", "another diet or crazy exercise program", who has the time for that? Besides, I hated exercising!
I found Fred's positive attitude contagious and immediately drew upon his energy. I felt he would support success and care about my health and me. Fred helped me re-evaluate and understand that moderate lifestyle changes would be sustainable. He said, "Health improvement first, a more fit body second and a healthy weight loss will result".
Each session I learned and my commitment grew. I can see my new lifestyle was set one step at a time, at a pace that was comfortable for me. Now my blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol are healthy and my weight is reduced by more than 50 pounds. Like everyone, challenges pop up and I have learned to stay positive, to start again each day.
Now I walk taller, have more energy, my blood pressure, sugars and cholesterol are healthy and my doctor is happy. Most important I'm proud of myself and confident I can progress.
