Michelle Loves Her Healthier Lifestyle

By Marathon Health

My weight was at its highest point and I was in so much pain, I couldn’t move well or stand for any length of time. I was losing sleep, my clothes were tight and I was generally uncomfortable in my own skin. My family suffered due to my limitations, so I suffered twice as much worrying about them.

I met with the team at Marathon Health’s Sage Health & Wellness Center, offered by my spouse’s employer City of Grand Junction. We had several discussions about what I would like to see moving forward. My number one goal was to lose weight. I felt that this would go a long way to eliminating or decreasing most of the issues I was suffering from.

With their guidance, I’ve completely revised my grocery shopping, pantry, recipes, ingredients, beverages and dining out… everything is customized to eating healthier. My physical activity has increased, so I walk more, park further from the store entrances, carry items instead of using a cart and spend more time outdoors doing activities I enjoy.

I still have weight to lose and goals to reach, but my overall health is so much better than before. I feel better, more energized, and my blood pressure is fantastic. I’m enjoying every minute of time I spend doing the things I love with my family and taking in the spectacular views around me. I’m loving my new and improved much lighter life!

Feel empowered to get a health evaluation or screening done yearly and discuss a plan of action with your health care coaching team. They’re the experts to guide you in the right direction based on your specific health issues or needs. Tell them what you’ve tried before and let them know what doesn’t work for you. Make your health a priority and make time for YOU. You’ll find your way and change your life for the better. — Michelle Brumbaugh, Marathon Health Member
