Jean's Story: Ice Hockey and a Healthy BMI

A former 'jock' gets her healthy body back

To Her Goal and Beyond

Jean not only met her goal weight of 150 pounds, but surpassed it; she's now a fit 140 pounds.

"I was dreaming of getting into a size 10 but, I am a proud size 8," she says. "I feel great, have tons of energy, am stronger, more content, and bolstered by the lovely compliments when people tell me I look terrific."

And her doctor was thrilled that she was able to lower her blood pressure without medication.

While it took her more than a year to lose the weight, she is quick to point out how long it took her to gain it. She now understands that her body had to adjust to losing weight, and that it requires time and perseverance.

Her advice to fellow members? "Hang in there, stick with the program, and remember your goals when the going gets tough."
