I was so excited to hear about the Wellness Ambassador program. I am not a walking miracle but due to great support from friends and family, I have been able to lose about 50 pounds. Because for the great support that I have received, I have now wanted to return that support to those around me. Last summer, I started a Facebook weight loss support group and had approximately 90 participants join. New friendships were started and old friendships were rekindled while everyone supported each other in changing their lifestyles. There has been more than one occasion that my heart has been touched by the sweet comments that people have shared. I am a huge advocate in getting healthy, not necessarily in losing weight. But usually when people start getting excited about becoming healthier, the other areas follow suit soon after. I am living proof that love and support can help anyone reach their wellness goals. I am honored to be a part of a great University that supports great Health and Wellness.
