In episode 143, Jill and Chris talk with Diane Allen, a member of the Becoming Elli private Facebook group. She’s often posting very motivational things about all of the great workouts and adventures she’s doing.
Like many of us, Diane had that mid-life weight gain and corresponding health issues. When her doctor suggested bariatric surgery, Diane’s daughter intervened and found them a gym and set Diane on the road to activity and health.
Diane says, “In the last four years I’ve tried many new activities; despite setbacks, physical exercise has greatly improved my mental health, my blood sugar and my confidence.”
She lives in North Carolina with her husband. She has four grandchildren and takes them on adventures now that she’s able to do so.
