Terri O’Connor on (from L-R) New Year’s Day 2007 & 2011

I met Terri O’Connor when I moved up to the 4th floor in Eastman. Over the course of the last year Terri told me about how she had lost a lot of weight. She inspires me everyday, so when I was planning this Better Me series Terri obviously came to mind.

I’d like to thank Terri for sharing her story. To read her story please click on the attachment below:

Congratulations to you both! Your stories are truly inspirational! Terri you mention a very good point and possible constraint, the family needing to eat the same foods as you. It would be great if you could share any good recipes that you found. Keep up the great work!

good for you


WW is a great way of life. I talk about managing my food instead of dieting. I was a member of WW many years ago, and over the last 2 years I brought back all the good habits- weekly menu, keeping track of what goes it and really understanding food and me.

Your story is wonderful, it is great you work at WW and are there to support so many other people.

Keep you the good work!
