“You have to be ready to make a change, and I was. I was tired of not feeling good, not looking good, and not having the energy or stamina to do normal everyday activities.
I’ve had both knees totally replaced, my lower back fused, and one shoulder worked on due to arthritis. With the extra weight I was carrying, my back and knees were continually in pain and I had no stamina. I also had to take high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes medications. I’ve been a member of Baptist East/Milestone Wellness Center for a couple of years now and have read the information about the HMR Healthy Solutions program. During a routine visit with my family doctor, I asked him if he knew anything about the program, he immediately responded with “It’s a great program, as long as you follow it”, and suggested that I give it a try.
After losing around 15 pounds on my own (and struggling to do that), I decided to join the program. I’ve been doing the Healthy Solutions program for just over 15 weeks now. With the help of my very enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, and very helpful Health Educator, Christin Howell, in the past 15 weeks, since starting the program, I have been able to lose another 65+ pounds. I’m still losing and want to continue to lose another 20 pounds or so. The weekly class is so informative; it’s no wonder that anyone in the program will lose weight. You’re taught how to read labels, what foods are good and what foods are not as healthy of a choice. You’re given new recipes and suggestions for food and/or suggestions on how to prepare foods. You even learn what to eat at restaurants and fast food places (if you have to go to one). The above items are just a glimpse of what we learn.Since starting the program 15 weeks ago, my Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar levels, Heart Rate, Waist Size, and weight have all dropped. My doctor had me stop my High Blood Pressure, and two Diabetes medications. I feel much better, don’t hurt as much, exercise every day, look better (per my wife), and I owe it all to the Healthy Solutions program.”
