Cathy Waller

WellWorks Success - member since 2013

I’m Cathy Waller, the self-proclaimed Queen of Halloween. If you see me this month, I’ll probably be wearing Halloween-themed earrings, if not an entire Halloween outfit. I joined WellWorks and the Risk Reduction program in 2013, when my health had hit an all-time low. It helped me realize that I could change my life for the better, and that diet and exercise really do work, for all of us!

There’s a quote that says:  "We must be willing to let go of the life we planned to enjoy the life that is waiting for us." And that's what I've done. I never thought I would be going to a gym, and not eating meat - and liking it! I feel better about myself now, and feel freer to be who I am. The thing I really love about WellWorks and Risk Reduction is that not one person makes you feel like you shouldn't be here or shouldn't be yourself. All the staff are very supportive and it's not judgmental, it's an accepting atmosphere.
