March Member Highlight

FXB Btown FIT Member, Ronalene A., talks about her experience at Farrell's and her goal to beat Diabetes.

I joined Farrell's 10 week challenge in October 2015. I made it through my ten weeks and was awarded female runner up. I felt the best I had in a long time. I knew I needed to stay on this journey and enrolled as a FIT member.  I enjoy all the aspects of FXB - the accountability, the nutrition, and the support of the FXB family.  

I am stronger than I have ever been at 53 years old. If it wasn't for FXB, I would not have discovered that I enjoy running. I completed three 5ks since joining and a mini marathon.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes about 5 years ago. Within the first three months of joining FXB, I was able to decrease my diabetic medication from 3 pills a day to one a day.

Last week, I discovered I was very close to a major goal. My A1C (average 3 month blood sugar level) was down to 5.6. In 3 months,  if my A1C, drops to 5.5 I'm no longer considered a Type 2 Diabetic.  This had been a goal of mine since day one. If I wouldn't have found or stayed with FXB, I'm very certain that my A1c level would have climbed up instead of down and I would be suffering from the complications associated with Type 2 diabetes.

So, not only I'm I stronger and healthier,  I will enjoy a fuller longer life!  Thanks Farrell's
