shannon-wangen-updateWhen I joined TELOS two and a half years ago I never imagined that I would be where I am today. I was over 350 pounds, depressed, and had no self-confidence. With the help of my Ortho-Kinetics® Trainer, I have been able to make a complete change in my life and I feel amazing! By working out 4 to 5 times a week and changing my eating habits I have been able to drop the weight, managed to keep it off, and am in the best shape of my life. I love my weight training and Zumba classes; I still participate in 5K’s and I’ve even participated in boot camp and step classes. Those are all things I never would have dreamed I’d be able to do! I actually feel like an athlete!
Since I started at TELOS I have lost 5.1 inches in my arms, 13.6 inches in my waist, 17.6 inches in my hips, 2.7 inches in my neck, going from a size 30 to a size 10, and have lost 180 pounds. That is 80 pounds since my last success story! Adding that to another 30 pounds I lost before coming to TELOS, I’ve lost a total of 210 pounds!
I tell anyone that’s willing to listen… If I can do it, so can you! It’s a lot of hard work, but if you are willing to put forth the effort, you can see amazing results. You’ll have to make some sacrifices, but it is so worth it in the end!
For me TELOS was and still is a place that I can come to even on my worst days and leave felling like a million bucks. I thank God every day that I stepped through their doorway!!
