“Walking through their door was the hardest part. They were all so welcoming. They accepted me as I was and that was so comforting.” Peggy M.
Read more about her inspiring and life changing journey from Peggy and her family in their own words.
“My mom is an amazing mother, friend and Mina (grandma) to my boys. I can’t express enough how proud I am of her and what she has accomplished over the past year and a half. What a transformation she has made not just in her size but also in her spirit. She has always been a very positive person and has always put the needs of others before her own. It has been great to see her switch roles and make herself a priority. She has shown us that not matter the stage of life you are in it’s never to late to make a lifestyle change! We are soooo proud of her!!!” Amy B.
“I don’t know what lies ahead; but I plan on making it the best I can. Keep on, keeping on with a lifetime of fitness, good health and feeling blessed.” Peggy M.
“About a year ago, I realized I had to do some major changes in my life. I have two amazing grandsons that have changed my way of thinking. They were, and still are, my motivation. I was way over weight with high blood pressure and basically unhealthy. When I realized I had trouble lifting my grandchildren and needed help getting off the floor. I knew it was time to make a change.
I began a lifestyle change, on my own, and then found SLST. Walking through their door was the hardest part. But, it didn’t matter how heavy I was, how old I was, or how out of shape I was. They were all so welcoming. They accepted me as I was and that was so comforting.
I began my journey with SLST about 8 months ago, and I am still going strong. In the past year, I have lost about 50 lbs, depending on the day! My personalized program began with what I was able to do. As I became stronger, my program became more challenging. I am losing weight, but most importantly, I am becoming healthier. I can get off the floor, by myself, and can pick up my grandchildren. They keep growing, so I have to keep exercising!
I was born and raised in San Jose, Ca. I am a retired elementary teacher, but before I began teaching, I took a road trip. I got a job at Sycamore Mineral Springs where I met my husband. That is as far as I got. We moved to Paso Robles and had two beautiful daughters. I have taught in Paso Robles, but found my love of teaching at Lillian Larsen School in San Miguel. I taught there for 25 years.
My fitness goals are to keep on keeping on! My goals are a lifetime of health and good nutrition. As long as I am blessed with fulfilling these goals; life is good.
I might add that in October, I was shockingly diagnosed with breast cancer. Luckily it was found early, and all is well. GET YOUR REGULAR MAMMOGRAMS LADIES. I feel so fortunate that I made a change in my health and wellness before this happened. I turned this experience into a positive motivation to keep going. The SLST staff helped keep my eye on the prize. Daily encouragement, and focus, kept me going.
I have no desire to slow down. If I do, I go back to where I started, and that is not an option in my life. I don’t know what lies ahead, but I plan on making it the best I can.
Thank you, SLST, for your constant support and motivation. Your encouragement has played a big part in keeping me focused on my journey of health and fitness.” Peggy M.
