My Y Story...

Alex

Alex has been coming to the Y since he was a sophomore in high school, he is now 23 years old. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 15. He was overweight, feeling down and could not control his eating. He was scared about his future and did not want to be on medication his entire life. His doctor suggested he join the Y. He had to force himself to put down the TV remote and get to the Y even just once a week. It was a struggle every day. By coming to the Y several days a week he has lost over 40 pounds and does not have diabetes anymore. Without the Y he feels he would be overweight, unhealthy, and have a poor quality of life. The Y is extremely important to him and he has made many friends. “The staff and members are so friendly and caring, they make me feel like family. They are here to help me make my life better.” ~Alex
