Thank you to Suwanee Magazine for this great opportunity. It has been life-changing for me. No matter what the results of the challenge, I’ve won. I received a call from my doctor’s office that I have completely reversed my diabetes diagnosis and am not even in the pre-diabetic range. I’ve lost 8 inches off of my waist! The coaching I’ve received from my fitness coach, Angie, and the team at Stage 3 Fitness have really helped me jumpstart my workouts and weight loss. The encouragement from other gym members has been great as well. The counsel I’ve received from health coach, Stephanie Wolfe, has helped me take this health journey to another level by helping me understand my body better and how nutrition impacts everything. My colleagues, friends and family have also been very supportive through this first leg of my journey. It’s not over — I have a ways to go and am hoping to lose another 50 pounds by the end of the year. Actually, it will never be over as this is a journey to live as healthfully as possible for the remainder of my days and be the best me that I can be. Thanks again, everybody! I am truly grateful.
