Calvetta - YMCA Weight Loss Program Success Story

"I initially went to the Linwood Y to inquire about Bitty sports for my then 2-and-a-half-year-old son. As soon as I entered, I noticed signs advertising nutrition classes, healthy living coaches, exercise classes and a program called Kids Zone. At that point, I weighed 221 pounds, had low self-esteem because of my weight, and zero motivation. The staff was so incredibly kind and encouraging! They gave me a seven-day pass to try out the programs. Well, here I am nine months later and 45 pounds lighter! I'm in charge of my life at the Y. "
