Around here, I am known as the office Grandma, and I have seen many wellness journeys in the 12 years I have been working here. I have been asked to share my own story with you this month. I have so many ideas to share, but what I am most excited about is the wellness journey that I am about to start. As many of you know, we are expanding the clinic. Part of the reason for the expansion is so that we can introduce the 8 Weeks to Wellness program, which I am sure you will be hearing more about this in the coming weeks and months.

Beginning in November, all the staff will be going to go through the 8WW program together. Drs. Ross and Amy want us to experience the program so that we might each improve our own health and so that when patients go through the program, we might be able to understand their journey. I am excited and a little scared to take this first step!

I am not in bad shape for a person my age, but I do have physical restrictions, and I know I have been eating too much. I am looking forward to getting my body and my brain back into a safer place. I want to sleep better. I want to be able to go for nice long walks again. I might even try Yoga! My fear is that I have chronic pain that might make it hard to do some of the exercises. I am excited to do this with the rest of the staff because I know I will have everyone behind me, supporting me, and pushing me.

I am ready to take that first step towards this program that I have heard so much about. I know how much it has helped other people, and I can’t wait to feel better.
