An Inspiring Story of the Power of Positive Nutrition Practices Paired with Exercise!
Weight Loss Challenge contestant Aisha Ahmed Credits GMM for Helping her Begin to Take Control of her Diabetes.
Just because she was recently eliminated from 11Alive’s Wellstar Weight Loss Challenge, don’t expect Aisha to throw in the towel. On the contrary. Now she is more determined than ever to stay on the path to a healthier, more productive life.
Having just begun her weight loss journey, she says that she’ll apply everything she learned during the competition to modify her behaviors so that, in her words, she can now “start to really live.”
“I’ve had to work through a lot. My anemia and diabetes often made me feel very fatigued. But since beginning this challenge, my A1C* went from a 12 to an 8.8 and is still dropping. My blood sugars are stable and my blood pressure is normal as well. I will keep working until I am off these medications. Trust!! I have hard work ahead of me, but I believe I’m up for the challenge!”
Aisha continues, “Let me say to WXIA and all those responsible for putting together the WellStar Weight Loss Challenge, thank you. I am truly honored to have been chosen to be a part of this challenge. To all the staff at Good Measure Meals™, thank you so much for feeding me for the past 2 months. You have taught me so much about portion control. And that I really don’t have to snack as much when my meals are balanced. Of course last but not forgotten, my awesome trainer Sloan. Thank you for helping me deal with issues I had left burried and ignored…[and] for helping me see that I am stronger than what I’ve known. So much more confidence I have gained with this challenge. No giving up!!”
Aisha’s story is an inspiration to anyone facing weight loss challenges, especially those who are living with or at risk for diabetes. It dramatically illustrates the power of positive nutrition practices paired with consistent exercise — a combination that GMM registered dietitians advocate as the secret to success for healthy weight loss.
