Marie is at risk for type 2 diabetes. So she decides to eat right and get active.
Marie works hard and sticks to her plan. As a result, she reaches her weight goal. She also reaches her activity goal.
Strangely enough, once she reaches her goals, Marie doesn't feel quite as motivated. She starts sliding back to her old habits.
Marie decides to take action. She thinks about how far she's come. She sets a new weight goal. And she commits to her healthy lifestyle all over again. She even gets her husband to join her.
Today, Marie is back to feeling motivated. She plans to live a long and healthy life.
