My name is Amanda Nelson and I am proud to be the Center Coordinator and a Certified Wellness Consultant at the new well of Grants Pass. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, trying one gimmick after another, losing and gaining and losing the same 30 pounds…Until the new well! Within the first few weeks of being a member of the new well I knew I had to be a part of this team of inspirational and amazing women. I am now living my dream of empowering women with struggles very similar to my own and growing myself at the same time. I have now successfully kept off 65lbs for over a year and am confident in my ability to keep reaching my weight loss and wellness goals. My new habits are now how I live my life, healthy, happy, empowered and inspiring others.
I was a professional dieter and master procrastinator for most of my life, riding the roller-coaster of weight loss. You know, lose 10 gain 15, lose 20 gain 25. I started seeing a pattern of gaining more than I lost. I knew I needed to kick the "Diet Mentality" for good, but still did nothing. I found myself sitting in my doctor's office at 34, 330 lbs+, with a brand new prescription to lower my blood pressure. It hit me like a ton of bricks, so instead of filling the prescription I went to the new well. At the new well I was able to find something more than just weight-loss, I found Wellness. I lost 85 lbs through the program and gained wellness through my lifestyle change. The program made such an impact on my life that I decided to join the team! I continue to achieve my wellness goals and I get the privilege of helping our clients achieve theirs too!
I had been overweight the majority of my life, much like the rest of my family. When I was in high school, I was already at 200 pounds then continued to gain another 25 -30 pounds while in college. Once I graduated and entered a high stress job, I continued to gain, weighing in at least 245 pounds. I had stopped weighing myself but knew I needed to make a positive and permanent change. I joined the new well and learned a healthy and sustainable way to eat and workout. The coaches inspired me and held me accountable. It was that motivation and structure that guided me to lose 120 pounds! I have found that this is a maintainable and fulfilling, healthy lifestyle that focuses on wellness and what is possible. I now feel 100% my best and I weigh in at a healthy 125-130 pounds at 5’2. I continue to follow the new well plan to help guide and inspire others in their wellness journeys. I am motivated to always learn and expand in my knowledge of nutrition, recipes, workouts, and stress management. I believe in this program and have seen the results of countless individuals. It is a personal package that helps men and women achieve goals and live a healthy life filled with wellness and happiness.
My name is Aimee Woodford, and I am a wellness consultant at the new well in Grants Pass. My whole life I have always turned to food for comfort. Whether I was happy or sad, food was always there. As I got older and more independent I started eating less fruits and vegetables and more fast food. After I had my son in 2012, I was almost 250lbs and not happy with myself. I decided to try every “get skinny quick” diet out there, and failed every time because I had no support. In 2014 I had had enough! I was out of breath all the time, and could not keep up with my 2 year old. I was Devastated! I heard adds on the radio for the new well, so I gave them a call to sign up for my consultation. When I decided to join, I instantly fell in love with not just the program, but the people who worked there. I had the support and accountability that I needed. I knew this was the place I needed to be! I joined the new well team in 2015 and had more motivation than ever to continue on my wellness journey. Now its 2017 and I just had my 2nd child, and I only gained 24 healthy lbs. Thanks to the new well pregnancy program, I have successfully lost almost all of that within a few months. I am confident that I will be able to keep losing weight until I hit my goal, and keep it off for a life time. I have seen this program help change so many lives, and I encourage you to come join us and find out what is possible for you!
My name is Nichole Peterman, and I am a wellness consultant at the new well in Grants Pass. I came into the center as a client in the spring of 2016 nervous, and not knowing what to expect. It didn’t take long before I felt like I was home, and had many members in an ever-growing family backing me up in my wellness goals. By the time winter came that same year, I knew I had to be a member of the awesome team of consultants at the new well. Now, a little over a year later, I have lost 71 pounds, and I am well over half way to achieving my weight loss goal. Not only have I been able to achieve healthy weight loss, I am also confident that I will be able to keep it off for a life time. I encourage you to come join us and find out what is possible for you!
