"I recently graduated from the Shasta Family YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program where I lost more than 25 pounds, and I now have more energy and feel better than I have in a long time."
“This program has changed my life! I have been dieting since I was 11 years old. I have never found a program that has totally addressed everything a person seeking a healthier life needs.....until now! Looking at food in a completely different way, looking at the causes of choosing unhealthy over healthy, learning about the benefits of activity, having support from the staff and classmates, a commitment to be here for a year, it has been amazing. I believe this program is the best, and I hope others will take advantage of it!”
