Christina Shahan is a supervisor at work, and a mom at home. “I’m always having to worry about being in charge of others,” she says. Like so many caregivers, she found it difficult to find time for self-care. “I’m very bad about taking care of myself,” she says. “I let my body and the food I was eating control who I was.”

When Shahan weighed in at 220 pounds, she knew it was time to make a change. “I never wanted to be at that point again,” she says.

So last year, through her employer, MTM, a non-emergency medical transportation company, she joined Real Appeal®, an online weight loss program offered by Rally Coach™. With her health insurance benefits, Shahan was able to sign up for Real Appeal at no additional cost.

Real Appeal provides accessible weight loss tools, exercise videos, 24/7 access to health coaches, and more. Recently, the program celebrated a major milestone: Collectively its participants have lost three million pounds.

With the help of Real Appeal, Shahan dropped 60 pounds in six months. Not only has the program transformed her health, it’s changed her mindset, too. “I go into work feeling more confident,” she says, “and come home feeling more confident. It’s been amazing.”
