Dorothy, age 47

“…I’m improving my WQ everyday…” 

 “I always thought I would lose weight without having to "work for it".  With Creating Wellness I learned that you have to be mindful of every bite of food you eat.  You have to ask yourself if it is good for your body and not just an object to use to relieve stress.  We all know that eating does not relieve stress; sometimes it causes more stress; especially when the clothes become tighter instead of looser.  My Wellness Coach taught me many different techniques on how to cope with every mood that might trigger an eating binge.  She used methods of relaxation and exercise to reduce the stress levels we all face in everyday life.  Creating Wellness meetings showed me I’m not in this world alone, or with unique problems.  These meetings and this program showed me how to cope with the situation and turn it into a "Winning" outcome.  I continually listen to the Sound AdviceTM to reinforce positive thoughts, and I learn something new each time.  The assessments were great for gauging how I progressed, or didn't progress if I procrastinated.  The program does work if you follow it faithfully.” 

Erlein, age 65

“…25 pounds lighter and off my diabetic medication…” 

“Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.  My MD put me on medication and told me to take one vitamin a day.  The brand he gave me was a highly commercialized vitamin so I took them along with all 8 pills for my diabetes.  In 2007 a combination of the pills, my diabetes and lifestyle put me in the hospital - I almost died. I have 5 children, 11 grandchildren and one great grandchild.  While in the hospital they took me off most of the diabetic pills.  I still went to my chiropractor because that seemed to be the only way I could feel better.  The diabetes pills had put weight on me – I was now over 200 lbs.  One day my chiropractor asked me what vitamins I was taking and told me about Vitalize and Creating Wellness.  Since I started taking Vitalize and went on the program, I’ve been able to get completely off my diabetes medicine and I have lost 65 lbs. I take my Vitalize every morning with my juice and the exercise I get is tremendous.  Taking my Vitalize is like taking a fresh drink of water and feeling terrific.  My five children range in age from 38 to 50 years and they are now taking Vitalize because they say I am running circles around them.  My MD says I am doing great. I feel great, no pills, just my Vitalize.  I am able to mow my yard; I’ve painted my whole house – while just over a year ago I wouldn’t get around without a walker.  Now I feel free and energetic and don’t need medication.”

Sharon, age 40

“…New attitude, new lifestyle, new me…” 

I am so pleased with the results of my weight loss -10 more pounds that my original goal!!   And, even more important, the changes in my life style and attitude are fantastic.  Because of these changes, my life will never be the same. I now have more confidence and self esteem. I will never sacrifice my health and well being to please or adjust to other’s desires or lifestyles. Exercise has become a welcome part of my life. It is important psychologically as it is physically. Exercise is a great stress reliever. It also helps me to remain focused and maintain a sense of control in my life. My focus now is on living a healthy life style, eating a healthy and well-balanced diet, watching my portions and stopping when I’ve had enough. As well as dedicating myself to challenging my fitness level and setting new goals. The time has seemed to go by so fast. The importance of having support, suggestions, tips, and the tools of success have been immeasurable. To a very large degree they are responsible for my success. To my wellness coach Lisa – thank you so much for your encouragement and support. I have learned a lot from your up-beat attitude. I will always be grateful. 

Connie, age 45, Registered Nurse

“As a registered nurse I see everyday the effects of improper nutrition, lack of exercise and poor lifestyle habits can have on a person.  I looked in the mirror and saw I was headed there myself.   Creating Wellness was like a breath of fresh air.  My Wellness Quotient (WQ) rose almost 30 points, I’ve lost 25 lbs, smile all the time and have the energy and lifestyle I’ve always craved.”

Lorraine, age 40, Bank Teller

“My medical doctor said I needed to change my daily habits for eating and exercising, so he referred me to Creating Wellness.  My first Wellness Quotient (WQ) was 59 – Challenged – but after 3 months of great coaching and a terrific program my WQ is 96….and climbing!  Now I’m living.”

Tim, age 44

“…junk food use to be 90% of my diet…” 

“I just wanted to thank you for all of your guidance and support.  The program was fantastic.  It helped me to improve my physical and mental state.  I was overweight, had little energy and alternated between states of agitation and haziness.  I now enjoy more energy, self esteem and I just feel healthier.  I lost about 24 lbs through better eating habits and more exercise.  Before the program, about 90% of my diet came from processed or fast foods.  I’m now more aware of portion content and size and I’m eating more fruits and vegetables (which is a real accomplishment for a junk food addict).  Even though I’ve completed the program, I know that I will be able to maintain my weight because of my new life style habits.  Through the program, I also kicked a very severe caffeine addiction in which I was drinking between 1 and 2 liters of diet coke a day.  I rarely drank a glass of water. The “Think Well” component of the program really assisted me in dealing with my caffeine addiction and the declining health of my elderly parents.   I think it’s important for those considering the program to know that they will greatly benefit not only from the customized program, but also from the focused coaching sessions.  Going through a life-change isn’t easy to do on your own and does require support from others who can relate to what you are going through.”

Alan, age 38, Teacher

“As a competitive athlete I’m always looking for ways to improve my performance.  Creating Wellness provided me the right coaching, motivation and direction I needed to create those positive lifestyle habits to compete at a higher level.  In my last Iron-Man contest I shaved 21 minutes off my time from the previous year.”

Dr. Douglas, age 50, Chiropractor

“In my profession I need to “walk the walk” as well as “talk the talk”.  Joining the Creating Wellness program I experienced startling changes – I lost 15 lbs of fat, lowered my cholesterol 25 points and took 3 inches off my waist.  I cannot begin to express the important role Creating Wellness is playing in my life.”

Skip, age 64

“…a whole new world has been opened to me…”

I have been on the Creating Wellness program since January 2008; I have been working out for several years but have always been only able to go so far.  Since I have started the program I have lost 20lbs, and kept it off.  The Sound AdviceTM is great for establishing the right eating habits, portion size, eating out and more.  I am taking the Vitalize vitamins, the Metabolize, and Mobilize (joint support) I feel I have more energy since being on the vitamins, as for the mobilize I can not say enough about that, I had hip surgery in my right leg 4 years ago and the Dr. felt the left would following shortly – if I needed to get down to tie my shoes I would have to do it on my knees....after about a 4-6 weeks of being on the mobilize I started realizing there was very little pain in the left leg, and I can cross my legs and bend down to tie my shoes with no pain at all.  The exercise DVDs has opened a whole new world to me, I have added the ball exercise to my strength training program and have enjoyed it, I’ve also noticed a big difference in posture.  These are all things I probably would not have done or been able to do had it not been for the Creative Wellness program.  Thank You for a more energetic life!”
