“What I really like about the First Mile Care program is that it emphasizes variety and choices. You don’t have to give up anything or focus on just one type of food or exercise. You learn to make smart choices.  I learned to replace bad habits with good ones. I am absolutely convinced that I will be able to sustain my progress.”

“Other programs weren’t as structured nor as intimate as the First Mile Care program and the behaviors and results just didn’t stick. It works for me because it’s a pragmatic package of methods and support techniques that I can sustain by myself. Seeing the results show up in the blood work was really gratifying.”

This really worked because it was slow and steady, and focused on your successes and the behavioral change that my coach was so good at explaining. I just feel like it’s a good program. I’m hopeful that it will get even more popular, because it certainly has helped me.”

Well, I’m not going to slide back. I am so happy with the health that I have. First Mile Care has been a big part of my journey in staying healthy.”
