Blues walking advocate and Michigan mother of three shares her personal
DETROIT, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Jodi Davis used to be among the growing number of obese adults. Today, the Michigan mother of three is healthy, fit and inspiring. In her new role as a healthy lifestyle and walking advocate for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, she blogs daily on the recently launched WalkyTalk.com(TM) to help others get moving and lose extra pounds.
"When doctors told me seven years ago that I was morbidly obese, I didn't believe them, "Davis said. "I denied it. I was active, and I just thought that being big was who I was. I had given up the idea I could be thin. But then something happened that inspired me to change my life - and walking worked to help me get there."
Davis lost 162 pounds in 16 months without the use of any drugs, surgery, expensive equipment or drastic diet plans. She did it the healthy and smart way - by simply eating healthier and following a daily walking program.
"I'm happier, healthier and more energetic than I ever thought possible. If you ask me my secret, I have to tell you that it's walking," said Davis. "I can't imagine not walking each day. I truly feel it helps me keep the extra weight off."
Now that Davis has reached her weight loss goal and kept the extra weight off for over five years, her new goal is to help other women. She shares the details of her success story at WalkyTalk.com, an online community created by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan where people can support each other on the road to good health. The Web site features Jodi's daily blog and also includes:
-- Resources to plan, track and maintain a regular walking program, using
information you provide to create a personalized log of your progress
-- Tips and basic guidelines for great results
-- A forum for fellow WalkyTalkers to share ideas and gain support
