1 Sarah Shimchick Director, YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program Arizona Diabetes Coalition May 20, 2011 FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT FOR HEALTHY LIVING FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY YMCA’S DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM

2 OBJECTIVES To provide some participants’ perspective To share some participants’ success stories To inform attendees of upcoming classes To answer questions dealing with program specifics

3 TODD When I started this class I had been trying to lose weight and get into better shape, but did not seem to have success. I knew much of what I should be doing, but was not following much of anything. Stress at work was really crazy, along with stress raising and providing for a spouse and 5 kids. I was not controlling the amount of food I ate and I did eat a lot of fast food meals. The program has helped me to reinforce much of what I already knew, but also gave me the ability to achieve it this time and continue to progress towards a more healthy and happy lifestyle. I have a lot more energy now and am able to be more active with my kids. 3| YMCA’S DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM | ©2010 YMCA of the USA

4 PATTI Seems like I couldn’t do it by myself, I was always putting work and everything else ahead of my well-being. My uncle says some people live to eat and others eat to live. So, now I am trying to eat to live. I am never hungry, but I do watch what I eat, the fat grams, calories, etc. I am also trying to do more exercise by walking, using the treadmill, weight training, [and maybe even] water aerobics during the summer. I try to make sure I have healthy food to eat at mealtime and for snacks, so I don’t reach for something that really is not good for me, but convenient. I do know by eating correctly and being more active, we will have more energy and stamina. As a bonus, I have met some wonderful people. I am very busy with work, but I chose to take the time for me. It is a drive to the YMCA from where I work, but it is well worth it. I am glad I signed up for the program. 4| YMCA’S DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM | ©2010 YMCA of the USA

5 LORRIE I am so glad that I said yes when I got the call asking if I wanted to attend the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program. I received so much valuable information, helpful tools and support to enable me to make significant changes in my daily lifestyle. Our Lifestyle Coach was wonderful and I loved being able to see what my local Y offered during my complimentary membership. Because of this program, I was able to reach my weight loss goal for the 16 sessions, even with a two week cruise, Thanksgiving and all of the Christmas celebrations thrown in!
