Barbara’s “Why” is that over a year ago she decided to make her health a priority. She made a lifestyle change by increasing her exercise and visiting a wellness center to speak with a nutritionist about her goal of reaching a healthy weight. She has since lost weight but more importantly feels like she has much more energy.
