“We talked about how stopping smoking has impacted my life. I quit by using nicorette gum for about 2 weeks in 2015, then just will power and Stephanie reminding me I needed to quit The most important impacted on quitting was the change in my health. After about a year after I quit, I felt as good as I had ever felt. My lungs and breathing were back to before I started smoking. I feel like I have more energy. After the initial weight gain when I first stopped smoking, I lost 25 lbs. I cut down on my caffeine and use about 75% less sugar in my diet. I feel better about myself, while I was a smoker I always felt bad for smoking because I knew how bad it was for your body and my family. There is always the $10 a day savings that is very nice. Also my mother in law quit after seeing that it can be done. My wife is on the right steps to quit but not there yet. I started out doing it for my kids, they get all the credit for me quitting. If I can do it anybody can.”

“Within weeks of participating in the Powered Through Plants Program, I began to see many improvements in my health. The biggest improvement that I feel will impact my life the most was in the lowering of my blood pressure. It was truly amazing to see that just by applying all of the information provided in the PTP program, that it could make such a monumental improvement in my life!”

“If you are looking for the path to good health, then this class (Powered Through Plants) is for you. I loved learning what is healthy and busting myths on what is not. Recipes are extremely helpful, as they take the guesswork out of cooking. Discussing goals and hurdles with likeminded people was eye opening. Eating more fruits and vegetables has increased my energy level. These classes were wonderful and I got so much out of them, so thank you again for doing this! Thank you, Debby!”
