GARY’S WELLNESS JOURNEY
Gary wanted to lose weight, feel better and have more energy so he could enjoy his life like he did when he was younger.
WHAT ROLE HAS YOUR HEALTH COACH AND CHP PLAYED IN YOUR WELLNESS JOURNEY?
My Health coach played a vital role in lifestyle changes because she kept me honest. When I would visit my personal physician for my yearly physical, I would make him promises I knew I wasn’t planning on keeping as far as eating better, losing weight, and making sure I take all medications. It was easy to make those promises because I knew I would not see him for another 6 months to a year.
But when I knew I had to meet with Katherine each month it was hard to tell her one thing and do another. She kept it real to the dangers I was facing as my health started to worsen. Even when I relapsed back into my old ways of unhealthy living, she would encourage me to hang in there and refocus on the changes I’ve made for the good.
