Lovelace Health Plan Employee Loses 101 Pounds

Arleen Posnansky, a Lovelace Health Plan employee has lost 101 lbs in the past 3 ½ years. She credits her success to Weight Watcher's, Herbalife and Zumba. She first joined Weight Watcher's and began learning portion control, and a new way of eating and tracking your food. Arleen also realized she needed to be more active. She began by walking more and riding her bike. One day she was introduced to Zumba and this quickly became her passion.

Arleen now faithfully attends Zumba fitness classes at Z-Fit Studio of New Mexico six days a week. If she is unable to attend class or is traveling, she takes a Zumba DVD so she has no excuse not to exercise. Since reaching her goal of 101 lb. weight loss, Arleen now loves going shopping! Congratulations Arleen!!
