When Lori looks in the mirror, she sees someone who is well acquainted with setbacks. She also sees someone who doesn’t get discouraged.
“There was a point in my life I became overweight and unhealthy. I started having problems with my blood sugar levels, and my doctor said if I didn’t change my habits, I was going to end up diabetic. She also told me I was malnourished. It scared me, and I knew this wasn’t the person I wanted to be.”
Thanks to diet, exercise and commitment, the pounds started to come off. “Of course, I’ve encountered roadblocks in the years since then. We all do — but I don’t get discouraged. I just start where I left off and know that my body will respond as long as I stay consistent.”
As leader of the RealCare team, Lori likes to share the advice she lives by: “Never give up on yourself,” she says. “It’s never too late to start again!”
