“I wanted to sincerely thank you for developing the State of Slim program and offering it in the City and County of Broomfield. As a practitioner that has been working in public health for over 15 years, this program was perfect for me at this point in my career because it brought me back to the roots of holistic wellness, along with reminding me of the key principles of behavior change theory and practice. It also made me reflect on why I pursued exercise physiology in undergraduate school and public health in graduate school, which was to make a difference in people’s lives. You may have heard that I decided to join State of Slim because I needed to start modeling the behaviors that I am promoting through public health. In addition, this was the first time that I was a participant in a lifestyle change class versus being the expert or teacher. I must say the process was outstanding. The curriculum made so much sense and touched me deeply at some of my core issues. For example, I needed to get the right mindset and learn to be positive to make this work.
As a result of this process, I lost 34 pounds and I am down to a healthy BMI. But more importantly, I feel energized, healthy, and my stress levels have decreased significantly.”*
