I felt unhappy and self-conscious about my weight after having children. My clothes didn’t fit properly andI felt lethargic,whichwas affecting my self-esteem.

Thankfully,I can accesstheAltec Health Center at no cost through my employer-sponsored Marathon Health benefits at Altec, so I made an appointment with Faythe Davis, FNP.

Faythe taught me about weight-loss strategies and encouraged me to set small but attainable goals, including tracking calories, eating healthier foods, and walking a couple of times per week.We also set up regular check-ins to keep me on track and hold me accountable for my goals.

I took Faythe’s advice to heart and committed to making healthy lifestyle changes. I adjusted my calorie intake, switched to more nutritious foods, and started exercising regularly.I now make most of my food at home from scratch becauseI want to know whatI put in my and my family’sbodies.

Since working with Faythe attheAltec Health Center, I’ve lost 39 pounds. I’m happy with the way I look and feel for the first time in my life!I have moreenergy to play with my childrenand have noticed major improvements in my self-esteem and self-talk.

Losing weighthastaught me that if I set my mind to it, I can make changes to improve my own health.It’s different for everyone, but for me,I was able to make healthy habits a lifestyle change afterjustthree months of settingincremental, obtainable milestones.It is possible!
