Be Inspired by Kim's Story

One of our favorite things at Mettler Center is hearing our members' success stories and seeing their transformations.

From rehabilitation to weight loss, each are so encouraging and reaffirm our committment to Mettler's mission and the work we are doing. Occasionally, we get to share these wonderful stories—to inspire and motivate others to live healthier, fuller lives.

Below is one such story. Kim's story is an textbook example of gradual, safe weight loss (as recommended by The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics)—without fad diets or magical products, just good ol' fashioned moderation and movement. And to that, we say, "Way to go, Kim!"

Here's a letter from Kim to her trainer (used with permission):

Hi Jackie,

I just wanted to say thank you for your help getting me on track this year. I was really nervous to join Mettler because it seemed like it could be overwhelming. I am so glad I didn't let that stop me.  I really appreciate the work we've done together and the encouragement and confidence you've given me.

I really like data, so here's some info that I find interesting and exciting. I exercised 202 times this year, for an average of 3.88 times per week. I completed Couch to 5K for the first time ever. My resting heart rate dropped by 20 beats per minute. I lost 12 inches off my waist, and dropped at least 1 pants size. As of this morning, I have lost 34 pounds. And I couldn't have done it without you.

As you know, I take a photo after every workout. It's hard for me to see the progress day-to-day, but there's no denying it when the evidence is staring me in the face. Here is a video compilation of all the photos I took this year.

Once again, I just wanted to thank you for the help and encouragement. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, and here's to a happier and healthier 2017!
