Office Fitness Challenge Inspires Weight Loss

A fitness challenge at The AIM Companies gave employees a perfect reason to commit to getting fit. 

Although some - like Accounting Specialist Connie Compton - already had plenty of motivation.

"I have high blood pressure and in January it spiked up way, way high," Connie says. 

"I had a lot of different things going on. I was moving and January is the toughest time of year for my job. My challenge was to get my blood pressure back down. Not only did I do that, but I was able to entirely get off my blood pressure medication."

Before the fitness challenge, Connie's blood pressure measured in at 163 over 106 - an extremely high figure. Her readings consistently improved throughout the challenge, including a reading of 115 over 70 - leaps and bounds better than when she began.

Not only was the blood pressure benefit a help, but losing the weight also made a difference in other areas of Connie's life as well.

"Once I got off the blood pressure medication, I could exercise easier," Connie says. 

"I know you're healthier if you weigh less and I got to where I wasn't even having pain from inflammation. When you're older, you get inflammation throughout your body and you hurt everywhere. It's really miserable. And it aches. I got to where I didn't have aches and pains anymore."

Her weight loss strategy was equal parts AIM products, healthy eating and exercise. Connie added ProPeas and fit 'n fiber in a regular smoothie to her routine. Her breakfasts, lunches, and dinners included smoothies, fruit, vegetables, and protein. She cut out sweets entirely and she made a goal to walk every day.

At the end of the fitness challenge, Connie had lost twenty pounds and five-and-a-half inches off her waist.

For Connie, products from The AIM Companies have been an important part of her life for years. Before she found AIM, Connie had a thyroid condition that severely impacted her health and lifestyle.

"I could hardly function before AIM," Connie says. "I remember sitting at my desk and thinking, 'I don't know if I can get myself home.' 

Thankfully someone told me about AIM products. I got started on Herbal Fiberblend and BarleyLife and I'll tell you what, it turned my life around."

"I was a totally different person after that. It just gave me that cell energy that they talk about. I was like, 'Woohoo!' It was wonderful. And I've said to people, I think it saved my life. I could hardly do anything until I started BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend."
