Being healthy has always been a value of mine, yet with the stress of work and school, as well as life transitions, I had slipped into old habits and needed some way to get back on track. With the HAWA program, I was able to connect with my HAWA Provider to update her on what I was doing and she offered support and ideas I could try out. My goal was to improve my health and to have a “place” where I could check in, periodically. Her encouragement and support gave me inspiration and accountability. Through this journey, I have become stronger and more healthy - body, mind and spirit, and I was able to lose 20 lbs! The partnership with my Provider helps me recommit to my plan and recognize what I have accomplished, which helps keep me motivated and moving forward.
