“I was diagnosed with diabetes in March 2016. My goal was to lose 65-70 lbs. and normalize my blood sugar, Hemoglobin A1C and cholesterol profile. I accomplished all of these goals by mid-June 2016. The support from the health coaches, ability to start exercising again, and doing physical therapy for my back injury all contributed to my condition improving and achieving my goals.”

“My goal was to increase physical activity and take my medicine regularly. The medication and physical activity trackers the program offers provide a means for me to remember to take my medicine, and keep me motivated in striving to be more active.”

“The health coaches are great at encouraging me and coming up with ideas to help me achieve my goals. I now pay much better attention to checking my blood sugar for my Type 2 diabetes. The health coaches help keep me on track with controlling my blood sugar (without medication) and meeting my weight loss goals.”
