“I have a desk job, and I wasn’t moving much,” says Kristen, an actual 2014 participant. “As far as exercise, I would give up quickly whether it was a treadmill routine or going to the gym. I would do it for a while and then I would just stop.”
Listening to Kristen gush about how much she loves the Fitbit® Zip™ she received with the Weight Talk® program, brought to you by Alere Wellbeing and the American Diabetes Association®, it’s hard to imagine that she was inactive most of her life.
At her heaviest, Kristen weighed 250 pounds. She had tried to lose weight many times before, but nothing clicked until she found Weight Talk. “When I learned I could participate for free through my employer-sponsored health insurance, I decided to take advantage of the guidance. It was the best decision I ever made,” she says.
