I met JuanTe in 2011 when I first walked into weight watchers. JuanTe very quickly became a role model in my weightloss journey. Leading by example and providing unending, honest support we soon became good friends. Realizing I needed to work on my mental in order to remain successful with my weightloss, I was very grateful when JuanTe shared her personal story with me and introduced me to al-anon. She remains a huge support and motivator in my life 5 years later. She leads by example and never expects anything from anyone she wouldn’t do herself and chances are, she already has! One of the things I admire most is her drive to become a better version of herself. She is disciplined and goal oriented. This has led her to successfully maintaining a 75lb weightloss for 9 years, putting her son through college, all the while remaining debt free. She is one of the most caring, selfless people I have met.
