Walk at Home is a TRUE inspiration to me and has inspired me to do the following and help others!
In 2011, I lost 75 lbs on my own, by portion control, drinking water and moving (pedometer). I love to help others so I started a Facebook support group “STEPS TO GOOD HEALTH” because I love to help and support others. Through the years, between local media and word of mouth, our group has grown to nearly 20,000 members!
Fast forward to 2018 and I now have close to 20,000 men, women, seniors, tweens…all supporting each other in a POSITIVE atmosphere 24/7, where you can be yourself and no one will ever judge you. As a result, so many of my wonderful members have said that because of our group, they either lost weight, some say their blood numbers have come down, they feel great, etc. As I told them, I am no doctor, no nutritionist, I am just an every day woman who did not lose weight by a diet, it’s called a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
The ironic part of this whole thing is that…NOW…I am looking to these wonderful people for their support.
Because of life’s circumstances (lost my brother suddenly, menopause, etc.). I gained all of my weight back. 6 weeks ago, I started my journey again, at 52 years old and in menopause. Wow! I am so thankful for my community.
I want to continue to spread the word about our Facebook support group. There are so many people out there struggling with their weight and they feel alone. I want them to know that we are here for them.
Below are some of my wonderful members who said that STEPS TO GOOD HEALTH has helped them so much:
“I know I’ve said it before, but thank you so much for creating STGH!! I have struggled with my weight since I was 10 and this group has become a family for me. If you do have a get together this fall I will do everything to be there!! Love you friend!!” – Molly
“Peg you have been so supportive to us all. I started my first steps because of you! (Bought a FitBit) Now I walk well over 10,000 steps a day!” – Linda
“Without YOU and your honesty & desire to help others in our lifestyle changes and weight loss journey, this group would not exist. Not only have you encouraged & motivated us but you’ve given many of us a real sense of self-worth and the desire to motivate others!” – Karen
“The support and encouragement that we receive from this group is beyond words. This group is my motivation when I need it, my strength when I’m feeling weak, my support when the going is tough and the love and friendship that keeps me going. No matter what it is I can turn to this group and know that I will be uplifted. This is all possible because of you.” – Susan
“Because of this group, I learned never to give up and anything worth having requires work. The clock face on my Fitbit reads “it all begins with a single step” , I chose that because this group taught me that it’s not a race but a lifestyle change.” – Michelle
