At nearly 300 pounds, Heather Quillen knew she needed to make a drastic change. And did she ever! Her new outlook on life ignited a passion to help others. She developed a promising new program called YoMedics, aimed at fighting childhood obesity before it even begins.

    Thank you Heather, for the inspiration to get where I need to be. Granted, I only need to loose 30-lbs, but that's still a very, heavy sack of potatoes to be carrying around! I have been thinking about getting back into my walking routine for months now... Today, you'll be my walking buddy... I’ll keep you posted... Thanks!!!


    Happy Sunshine!

    I applaud you Heather for your committment. Great things can be done in small increments. And staying focused on your goal.

       I just finished watching your video Heather and found your story very touching.  What you touched on was something I find to be very true in my own life is " Purpose and Passion ".  I believe one needs these two things to really make dreams possible...

    Thanks for sharing this and I will pass this information on.
