What Our Clients and Members Say
"I use my wellness portal that Custom Design Benefits has provided for me as part of my wellness plan. I log in my weight and sync my daily exercise with my Fitbit to monitor my progress. I also read the monthly New Paths newsletter that is on the portal and browse the site for information. There are good articles that make you stop and think about how much sugar is in the foods we eat.
"I can look at my numbers and progress on the portal. I can see my food and calories, weight, steps, and blood pressure readings. All the info from my physicals is there too. I like that my SHS health coach can see the work I am doing. The proof is right there, and it helps her guide me in the right direction."
"I’ve used the portal to take my HRA every year, and know I can do a lot more to track by using it more regularly. Wearing my device every day is another motivation for me to keep moving to meet my daily step goal."
"I am feeling good. I have been utilizing My Action Plan, and it is working! I am working out regularly, choosing fruits/vegetables and lean meats for a healthy diet. I have cut coffee out, and today, instead of reaching for the coffee pot, I grabbed a bottle of water."
"I have attended SHS webinars on Mindful Eating, Diabetes & Exercise, and Exercise & Aging. I plan to revisit these webinars on your YouTube site too. I am thrilled to learn more about your New Paths newsletter on the portal, where I can get healthy recipes and useful information at my fingertips. Your program is a wealth of information, and I have come to rely on the portal “Trackers” in my day-to-day living."
"SHS Health coaching is an integral part of my success. My coach gives me practical guidance and helps me not to feel guilty if I gain weight. She understands the cravings, and the lack of motivation. SHS’s First5 weight loss program is an additional benefit of the Balls Foods’ company wellness plan. I was informed I needed to do the program because my BMI put me in a high-risk category. Now I am off all medications, have lost weight, and continue with coaching to help maintain my success.
"I participated in 4 SHS coaching programs - weight loss, prediabetes, prehypertension, and quit tobacco and did a medical appeal. I met my weight and BP goals for my incentive. I am so proud to say I lost 9.2 pounds since starting First 5, reduced BP from 156/92 to 136/70 and down by 18 cigarettes. Following my 6-session programs, I am continuing with extended health coaching to get the ongoing support I need."
I started with health coaching 3 years ago to stop smoking. Then last year, while on the First 5 weight loss program, I spoke with Dawn every Tuesday. Once I went back to work, I then spoke with my coach every other week, and now we talk monthly. I’m still making progress on the continued coaching program. Not only has it helped with my weight loss, but coaching has really helped me deal more effectively with family stressors.
