Allison Davis, a Case Manager at UF Health Shands Psychiatric Hospital, rediscovered WW last January when she saw an article in Shands News about GatorCare offering plan members a discounted WW membership. Throughout this past year, Allison begun her wellness journey with WW’s Digital + Workshops plan and lost a total of 65 pounds in the process.
Before joining WW, Allison found herself continuously snacking and mostly sedentary. She realized she wanted to keep up with her daughter’s active lifestyle and knew a change was needed. When Allison came across the article in Shands News advertising GatorCare’s discounted WW membership, she thought “I had participated in WW several years ago and if GatorCare is willing to pay half, then the only thing I would lose is weight.” Since joining WW, she spends her time at trampoline park or skating with her daughter and taking evening family walks. She even found more fruits and vegetables she enjoys that she didn’t like before. When asked what her favorite part of WW is Allison replied, “My favorite part is the workshops. I learn about new recipes and products. It is nice to have others to talk to in order to stay on track. They’re a very supportive group of people.”
Allison stated that the WW app is one of the most useful tools for staying on track with her wellness journey. “The phone app makes tracking the points very easy and the FitBit app measures my steps and plugs the steps into the WW app. The app has a lot of restaurants in order to make good choices. Since WW goes on a point system I can save my points to have a piece of cake or ice cream.” Overall, Allison has enjoyed this program and would recommend WW to others looking to begin their wellness journey.
The WW discount is available to all GatorCare members and includes both an online-only option and an in-person + online option. Learn more and sign up today!
