Lydia Dominguez

No longer considered pre-diabetic!

— Lydia Dominguez

Lydia Dominguez, age 58

I have been coming to LFHS since I was 16 and I have utilized many of the programs over the years including the WIC program. I found many of the educational programs very helpful and supportive, including a healthy cooking class that was offered many years ago.

Recently, I completed the “Prevent T2 Class”, the new diabetes prevention program. This class has given me many tools to implement in my everyday life such as creating a healthy diet plan, increasing exercise, practicing daily planning and grocery shopping.  I have learned so much about nutrition and how the body works when it comes to preventing diabetes.

When I started the class, I was at risk of acquiring Type II Diabetes, but with the help of the T2 Class, LFHS Staff and guest speakers, I made a commitment to change. Over the course of the year, I got closer to my weight goal.  I received continued encouragement from the teachers and when questions arose, they helped explain why and how to adjust my goals.  The staff was open-minded and shared their experiences.  I learned that goals can be accomplished with guidance and utilizing the tools I learned in the class such as journaling.

I am no longer considered pre-diabetic. I no longer take any of my medications and my sugar numbers are better than ever!  I contribute my success to the knowledge gained in this class and the support I received from my classmates in a non-judgmental atmosphere.  We are all in this together!
