30 Days of HOPE - Day 30

I wanted to finish up this project with the story that gives me the most hope and encouragement: My sweetheart and I.  We have lost a combined 250 lbs with the help of this wonderful program and it has completely transformed our lives. We feel so blessed to be able to walk alongside our clients and help guide them on their personal journeys to health. We are honored to work with our amazing coaches who are just as passionate about creating health as we are.  And if that wasn't enough, we get to do this from the comfort of our home (sometimes in our pjs!), living in the town we CHOSE to be in and make friends ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! 

It's a BLESSED life indeed!
