After 40 years of fad diets and starvation diets (my own idea of trying to lose by eating less than 500 calories a day), I completely caved into my cravings when I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at age 67; and went through 7 1/2 weeks of radiation.
On top of all those years of dieting, I had worked out faithfully every day (even when working full time raising children), but when I went through radiation for the cancer, I was so tired, my work out dwindled down to only a few days a week and shorter and shorter periods of work outs. I was eating more and I packed on the weight. In a matter of a few months I went from 145lbs to 170lbs.
When I found the new well eating program through a friend of mine and I met Janet and all the lovely women who work there, I knew I was truly in the right place.
The eating plan is balanced to bring health and energy to my mind and body; along with the exercise program. I now weigh 135lbs. I can keep up with the kids and grandkids on walks, hikes, golf, swimming, etc. I thought at the age of 67 with cancer that it was over. I didn’t know the Lord had a better plan for me at the new well. Now, at the age of 72, I’m working out on the elliptical and Nautilus machines, treadmill and having fun in Zumba classes- dancing for an hour 3 times a week.
The new welll gave me my life back and introduced me to a much better lifestyle. Thank you to all involved in this transition!! Still maintaining 3 1/2 years later.
