STRIVE Participant Feedback & Success

Here’s what our participants are saying about STRIVE 2 Survive.

“The program helped me get back on track to reach achievable goals.”

“I’m very happy I attended your program and would recommend it.”

“STRIVE 2 Survive definately helped me, I was motivated and learned alot.”

“It was a very informative program!”

“I feel the program was comprehensive and helpful. I was already starting to make healthier choices but this was motivating to me and having the starting and ending numbers was nice to see what happens with my health too.”

“It helped me to realize little things like reading labels and what not. I just wanted to feel better about myself and what I ate and just get some pointers about how to change a few things in my life to achieve the little goals I have for myself.”

“I have highly recommended Strive 2 Survive to several people. I enjoyed this program very much! It definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things – especially nutrition.”

“As participants of Strive 2 Survive I would like to share a story with you.  I know alot of people including myself think that if we change our eating habits & exercise we will lose weight and if/when that doesn’t happen we wonder why we even try and sometimes throw in the towel. However, recently my husband went into the clinic with tightness in his chest and because of his history of heart disease they decided to do an angiogram to make sure his current stents were not blocked again or that the arteries that had some previous blockage had not gotten worse. To our surprise we found out that infact blockage was not the cause and that the arteries actually showed less blockage than the previous angiogram taken 2 years ago proving that although you may not see the changes from the outside, you are making big changes inside!  Thank you so much for the class, I’m sure it is helping make changes in many people.”
