The Y has changed my life. Thanks to their financial assistance program, I was able to join the Y and better my life. I joined the Y a year ago. I’ve always struggled with my weight but last year was a big year for me. I decided it was time for me to take control of my life. I started to lose weight and then I had a 40 lb fatty tissue removed and I was feeling even better. So far I’ve lost 191 lbs and still going. I never thought that I would become the person I have become. People have said I have more confidence, have come out of my shell and smile a lot more. I have done three 5ks this year- what a great sense of accomplishment! I like walking the track, using the bikes and swimming and another great bonus– I can go out to Miller’s and use their exercise equipment and pool. It’s a great place to work out. I like to work out!- never thought I would say that! I want to thank my friends and family for all the love, support and encouragement they have given me. It helps to have a support system because at times it’s not easy. My motto to myself is ‘Just suck it up!’ I have been told by many people that I’ve inspired them, so if I can inspire one person to better their life and become healthier then I have made a difference. You have to believe in yourself and know that you are worth it and that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to! You have to be the one that wants it- not anyone else. I have more goals now than I ever have and I’M NOT DONE!
Thanks to the Y for changing my life. Janet Price
