Teen Story: Manny, 15, taps into his motivation
Manny was aware that he felt different from his friends and family and wanted to lose some weight. While looking for resources to help Manny reach his health goal, his Mom found Kurbo and he decided to try it. When he realized that Homecoming was just around the corner, he knew he wanted to feel his best and decided to fully commit.
The Kurbo program taught Manny healthy habits that made a difference right away. He soon realized that other people were starting to notice the change in him and that he was starting to look better in his clothes. He began to watch what he ate, especially focusing on portion sizes. Running on the treadmill and working up a good sweat became one of his favorite activities.
Manny received lots of support from his parents and Coach Ann Marie along the way. “My Mom was surprised at how much food in the house were red lights. Coach Ann Marie helped me with eating properly and showed me new exercises.” His found his Kurbo Coach to be a “cool, flexible person.”
His Dad was also incredible at keeping him motivated along the way.
Manny feels great and loves where he is now! He has fully embraced the Kurbo system and has found that he no longer has to track daily; making healthy choices comes naturally. He’s lost 46 pounds, and has even earned a new nickname from all his efforts. “They call me Slim now,” he says with a grin.
Manny would encourage other teens who want to get healthier and feel better to try Kurbo. “I would definitely recommend Kurbo. It’s not just another app. Commit and you will see the change. You have to find the motivation, a goal, and you will lose weight. I’m now the healthiest person in the house!”
