Central Sac is where it’s at and it’s all because of great members like Janelle Wheeler! Janelle is a single mom of a crazy, wild and amazing 10-year-old son (her words), works a full-time job at Whole Foods, and still makes time to take care of herself so that she can be her best for those she loves and cares for every day.
Janelle joined Results almost a year ago during the Summer Slim Down program. She had been trying to lose weight on her own but had no clue of what to do for exercise. That’s when one of her co-workers suggested Results! Janelle said that she felt awkward when she began and struggled to breathe during her first workout – now she loves her classes (Tabata and Booty Friday are her favorite days)! The group energy and the exercise programming take the burden of thinking about how to do it yourself and keeps her motivated. The thing that kept her going at first was her desire to be able to play with her son without being tired after 5 minutes. She started out doing all this for him – now she says it’s all for her! Janelle says the best part for her has been the great feeling to toss out all of her old oversized clothes and to start to build up her wardrobe with clothes that fit, look good, and make her feel good. Janelle admits that it makes her proud and feel good when people ask her how much weight she’s lost and how she did it (she has lost 50 pounds so far). Janelle is now a great role model for her son as she plays basketball with him and has become more active overall – no more tired mom!
“This is a long-term journey. There will be setbacks, but I keep going because I’ve got years to live and I want them to be good ones” – Janelle Wheeler
