PreventT2 Success Stories

Bobbi lost over 100 pounds in less than a year. "I just wanted to be more active and didn't think I would actually lose any weight,” said Bobbi. “The biggest change for me was that I cared if I was active and about what I ate. I learned a better way of eating and was motivated to be more active.” New groups starting soon! Space is limited! Contact us today to see if you are eligible.

Mike just wanted a lifestyle change to improve his health. “At the age of 58 my glucose level had reached an unhealthy level as had my weight. I was starting to feel old and wanted to make a lifestyle change that could help me improve my health. The program was fairly easy to implement and I was soon losing 1-2 pounds a week. I am sleeping better and no longer rely on acid reducers to prevent reflux. I am benefiting greatly from the lifestyle changes I have made.” New groups starting soon! Space is limited.
