November Member Story - Todd Fry

November 8, 2017

I moved to Athens ten years ago, after spending years weighing between 400 and 500 pounds. Early on after arriving in Athens I found the resources available at WellWorks for the physical part of my journey to good health. However, I wasn't able to maintain any kind of exercise program until I started to deal with all of the mental reasons that I carried so much excess weight to begin with. I had to fully accept that my eating was out of control and that I had a serious problem. I was able to find the programs and help I needed to begin improving my life. As I made progress over the years, I also reached out to some wonderful staff at WellWorks, who not only taught me about healthy eating and exercise, but also supported and encouraged me when I needed it the most. I have always be able to count on WellWorks staff during my weight loss of over 200 pounds.
