According to www.phitamerica.org, obesity is not just a health problem, it’s a financial problem as well: $190 billion — That’s the amount of added medical costs every year that are estimated to stem from obesity-related problems. It’s nearly 21% of total U.S. health care costs.
Kaylyn is doing her part to help keep her own health costs down (in addition to the other benefits she’s enjoying!). Kaylyn says: “I had lost hope that I couldn’t get under 200lbs again. I started the program in hopes of losing 20 lbs by spring break and now I’m down 50lbs. BMI went from 38 to 27 and jeans size 16/18 to size 10 and still going!”
