Below are some success stories that participants have recently shared with us:
From Brandi K’s co-worker: “Brandi continued her healthy habits after the program ended and has lost 65 pounds.”
From Fayetteville High School: “Pam McCurley initially accepted the Scale Back Alabama challenge because a friend needed a partner/team member. After she got started she realized how much better she felt. Changing the way she ate and adding more physical activity has become a way of life for Pam. She is no longer just trying to lose weight but instead lives a healthier lifestyle. Her lifestyle changes have inspired her son and now they work together to make better choices. She is also an inspiration for our faculty and is always our cheerleader when needed.”
In January, Daniel B (pictured left) was at his heaviest weight. He reports he couldn’t bend over to tie his shoes without getting out of breath. He signed up for Scale Back, started walking twice a day at work, hit the gym three times a week, and cut back on snacking between meals. He lost 20 lbs by the end of the competition! He has since lost 10 more pounds!!!
