Losing Is Good

Health and wellness are two words used frequently nowadays. Finding the time to keep ourselves healthy can seem daunting.
Vol State employees Karen Waller, Betty Gibson, Shanna Jackson, and Cindy Johns have decided to help each other stay on track by holding each other accountable. Basically these women work out for 120 minutes or more each week, and weigh once a week. They email each other their results and the winner gets praised by her peers.
Karen Waller said, “We started this several months ago, but got off track.” She said that they are doing this again, and want to encourage other faculty and staff to join with the accountability pool if they would like. These four women are excited to continue their goals of losing weight and making healthy choices.
“Nothing tastes as good as being thin," Karen said.
If you want to join them e-mail Karen.Waller@volstate.edu.
