Quotes from our Participants: "In Their Own Words..."

  • “The key to a successful wellness program is to be accountable to each other and to motivate each other. It is also important to keep wellness alive by talking about it, making it part of your staff meetings, and part of your daily routine.”

  • “I had a lot of stress – everything from moving, to losing a family member, to getting into a car accident – but the [Highway to Health walking challenge] program kept me moving and gave my mind something positive to focus on.”

  • “My blood sugar went up over 200. I made excuses and figured it was just something I ate. But after the wellness program started, I realized that I needed to do something. I needed to start walking again. Once I started walking again, it (blood sugar level) fell back within the normal range, and it has stayed there.”

  • “Seeing your coworkers exercise and actually enjoy it motivates other staff to join in.There’s increased awareness amongst staff about fitness and health and more conversation about who is losing weight and how they are eating better and exercising more!”

  • “Sometimes they (her colleagues) would start off by saying, ‘I’m too tired. It’s been a long day.’ But then, they would see me walking and they would say ‘Well, she works the same long hours we do, and she gets out there and does it – so we can too!’”

  • “Everyone’s lost a few inches. Two have had pretty dramatic results. They’re feeling a lot better, shopping for new clothes, and it’s motivating them to continue. We do the walking video, people have been bringing their own lunch instead of eating out, and we cut our lunch a little bit short so that we have time to exercise. It’s definitely helped with our stress too! We’re all feeling better!”
