What happens when you don't break resolutions?

Park Ridge Health employee Susan Burlingham keeps moving her health in the right direction, one step at a time. She has put years of regret behind her.

"Every morning, you wake up and think, 'Why did I eat that last night? Why did I drink that last night?'" Burlingham said.

With help from a wellness educator, Burlingham has been exercising consistently and shifting her diet to one that's almost vegan.

"I've stopped that bad cycle of eating sugar and breads," she said.

"She really wanted to make a change but didn't know how," Park Ridge Wellness Educator Amanda Cofer explained.

"I don't buy packaged food," Burlingham insisted. "I buy ahead of time, so I'm continuing to feel better and lose weight."

As she reflects on the past year, the financial resources worker knows she weighs 90 pounds less than she did at her highest.

Still, her goal is to lose another 50 pounds.

"If she sticks to her guns and sticks to her plan, she can definitely meet that 50-pound goal," Cofer said.

And it may happen sooner than expected.
