I absolutely love the Eat Smart Move More Weigh Less program, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I truly believe that it has saved my life, and given me more quality time with my children. In January this year, a doctor warned me that I had to lose weight. The look on my doctor’s face after taking my pressure was terrifying. I was too heavy, wasn’t eating right, and wasn’t getting enough exercise. My blood pressure was dangerously high. Being placed on blood pressure medicine was in my future.
Later that week, I received an Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less flyer. I signed up. I had to do something, and I was determined to make it work. I attended class religiously. I tracked everything I ate and drank, changed what I ate and drank and how much, and moved more. I now love stairs! I also involved my wife and children. We made it a point to find new parks to explore in the Triangle and surrounding areas. We walked and hiked various trails. I now own a bike and go bicycling with my family. During the 15 week program, I lost 28 pounds, and now have great blood pressure. My doctor was ecstatic at my follow-up in the 15th week. I have continued tracking and moving, and signed up for the class again. I strongly recommend this class. It is an excellent way to easily improve your health and life!
