Kim Moore-Wright: Let’s hear what some of our other teammates have to say about their LifeForce experience.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: There were some things in my family medical history that had me concerned. Things like hypertension and high cholesterol. One day I was sitting with my primary care physician and we were going through my family medical history, and I had high cholesterol at that time, and we were considering medication.
Mary Hilliard Moran: My personal moment of clarity, or getting a kick in the pants, was I was watching a football game with my husband and I was looking at the stats of the football players, and I thought “Oh my God, my weight is the same as a football player. That’s not OK!"
Kat Klaene: I had tried all the fad diets, and I knew I needed help to reach my goals.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: I wanted to lose some weight, I wanted to reduce my cholesterol. I saw this as a good way of doing it because some of the past things I was doing on my own just didn’t work. So I signed up. It was an easy process to sign up, and I had to complete a health assessment.
Mary Hilliard Moran: The first meeting was informative, because now you have a set of data and you know what you are working towards.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: They offered to connect me with a nutritionist and that was just unbelievable, because now I would have the nurse talking with me about my blood work, but then I would also go sit with someone that could craft a tailor-made nutritional plan just for me.
Kat Klaene: I have tried where you start off on very restrictive diets and lots of exercise, do really well for a while, and then crash and burn. So Maureen, my nurse, was very careful to avoid those types of diets and restrictions.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: After meeting with the nutritionist for a six-month period of time, those initial changes have now become habits, and so I have a habit of eating better today.
Kat Klaene: What we’ve talked about in LifeForce is that small steps make a big difference. I get up and walk every hour and I have recruited a whole group of my coworkers to come and get steps with me.
Mary Hilliard Moran: I know for sure that having that exercise, and that time to clear my mind, makes me a better employee, makes me a better family member, wife, mom.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: After about six months of reducing sugars, eating better, eating more veggies, I could feel my energy levels going up. I was brighter at work. The creativity came back.
Kat Klaene: Even before I really started to see a lot of weight loss, I started noticing how I was feeling better.
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: I am here today to say that I have dropped 42 points in my cholesterol, and my weight has dropped 25 pounds, and I am eating totally different.
Mary Hilliard Moran: I went from a solid size 16 in ladies clothes, to now a very comfortable six.
Kat Klaene: I have lost around 125 pounds. My goal is to lose another 50 to 75 pounds, so I am getting there. I am over halfway there and I couldn’t be more pleased!
Carl Neely, CRCM, CFE: I took some pictures on the beach, and the next year after this program I was at the same beach, and I did the same pose. I tell you it was one of the greatest feelings to be able to look at the pictures and see significant results. And not only do I get the benefits of this program but it is incentivized. They are really paying me to be more healthy, that’s just a win-win!
Kat Klaene: Go for it. You have nothing to lose and every benefit to gain.
