Claudia Ampudia - November Success Story!

The Journey to Wellness has been a lifesaver to me.  I have ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, type II diabetes, fibromyalgia, and other health issues.  Before I began my Journey, I couldn't go grocery shopping.  Walking through the store was too painful for me.
I love going to the Summit now.  It's my home away from home!  I take the HydroFit classes.  The water is great for me.  It is low impact on my joints and it's FUN!  I enjoy SELF also.  The trainer tips are great.  Trina always teaches us something new.  The coaches always guide us to individualized workouts.  I also take the SAIL class - I love it!  There are SO many opportunities for each and every person I can't begin to tell you all about them.
I can take care of my grandchildren now.  Which is such an accomplishment for me!  I can walk through airports!  Before my Journey, my husband had to push me in a wheelchair.  I can now cook dinner for my family.  I've not done that in years.  I have lost 30 pounds!  (30 pounds people!!!!)  I still have a lot to lose but this is a journey.  I'm also off a lot of my medications and greatly reduced my insulin and my A1C is going down!
My coach Gwen has helped me, guided me, encouraged me and has been my friend and cheerleader. 
Thank you Journey to Wellness for giving me my life back.  I'm happy again!
