Florida Presbyterian Homes is pleased to announce Tammie Miller as the Employee Wellness Star for the 3rd Quarter of 2018. Her journey to a healthy lifestyle has been nothing short of miraculous.
Tammie’s story began when she saw a picture of herself from Christmas 2016. She realized her weight had gotten out of hand. Tammie was low on energy and she struggled to bend down and tie her shoes. She wore a knee brace to help cope with joint pain from being overweight. That’s when it hit her. Enough is enough.
On March 29, 2017, Tammie took control of her life. She started walking at night and making changes to her eating habits. She cut out sodas and candy, routinely opted for nutritional shakes, and she didn’t put anything in her mouth after 6 pm. Tammie went from walking one time around the block when she first started exercising to walking 5 miles a day – every day, without fail. She avoided the temptation to binge eat, but instead, allowed herself small treats along the way.
Her commitment to health went beyond basic exercise and diet; Tammie made a complete lifestyle change. And this change led her to losing more than 150 pounds in about 18 months, while gaining a much healthier lifestyle in the process.
Congratulations, Tammie, on all of your hard work.
We applaud your efforts to put your own health and wellness first!
