Stephanie and Johnathan, a married couple are both associates at Store #808 – Dothan, Alabama. They also were both alarmed to find out they were diabetic when they participated in The Home Depot’s 2011 Wellness Program.

“My husband’s blood sugar and A1C numbers were so high that I really think he would’ve died if we hadn’t discovered his diabetes. We both hadn’t been feeling great, but had come to think that was normal,” says Stephanie.

Recently engaged at the time, Stephanie and Johnathan started on a health improvement journey together. They cut carbohydrates, fried food and more. Since 2011, Stephanie has lost more than 180 pounds, gotten her diabetes under control, and even eliminated her need for diabetic and other medications. Johnathan’s diabetes is also under control.

“My kitchen design customers from a couple of years ago come in to the store and they don’t even realize they’re talking to the same person they worked with,” says Stephanie. “When I tell them it’s me and show them my before and after photos, they simply can’t believe it.”
