We’d like to recognize our Lemoine Wellness Champion of the Month for October – Pamela Guilbeau!
For those of you who don’t know, Pamela started her journey with Lemoine in January of 2014 as an Accounting Assistant and soon became AP/Payroll Administrator. Since then, she has transitioned into Staff Accountant in the Lafayette Office.
To stay healthy, Pam exercises daily, even if just for 30 minutes. She shares “exercise is vital to not only your physical health, but your mental health. I find that exercising also keeps me motivated to make healthier food choices throughout the day. By staying active and making changes to the food I eat, I have been able to lose 20 pounds in two months!”
When asking Pam what motivates her to stay active and healthy, she says her daughter, Kyla, is a big reason that she wants to be healthy. Her overall motivation is to have her body feel at its best. “I enjoy having more energy every day and having clothes fit better is a plus too!”
Pamela shares that her weight has always fluctuated her whole life, but recently she became uncomfortable with the amount of weight she had gained. She began going to the gym again and has made friends with people there that help to motivate her and hold her accountable. “It truly does enhance your workout experience when you keep positive/ uplifting people around you. I make substitutions for healthier items when it comes to eating, but allow myself to indulge in the food I love ever so often”.
Pam’s advice to living a healthy lifestyle is to stay focused on your goals, even on the days when you’re tired and unmotivated. The opportunity to make a change in your life is always available and you are the only person that can hold yourself back from your full potential!
Awesome job, Pam! We are so proud of you! Keep striving to be a healthier version of yourself every day!
