A TUSD staff member writes, "Through this training and information, my support circle, plus my commitment to regular, consistent participation I have lost 35 lbs and almost 10% body fat. My body is toned and muscle has replaced fat! It's been exciting experiencing the changes to my body and shopping for new clothes. Furthermore it's not just been about the weight. For me it's been about better mind body & spirit. I feel great! These wellness tools have helped me broaden my activity interests because I now am able to do what I choose to do; like cycling 109 miles in the El Tour De Tucson. Along with the mentoring, enthusiasm, support, and caring from Andrea and Raquel, my journey has been a great adventure. I am forever thankful for and grateful to my knowledgeable leaders. The cool thing is that my journey isn't finished yet. I feel like it has just begun and I can't wait for a new adventure!" More...
