When I was told that my blood pressure was too high, I felt defeated, mentally, physically, and emotionally. But, after meeting with my health coach once a week, I feel like my old self is back. My blood sugar and pressure have dropped and I feel better than I have in a long time. Don't think twice about joining this amazing program, as I can say with a smile that I did it, I'm still doing it, and I feel great!
