Charlene’s Story

My name is Charlene M. Pooser. I was born in Charleston, SC but raised mostly in Stillwater Oklahoma, so I’m a Midwestern / Southern girl, and the only girl of 4 children. I had to be tough all my life. My weight didn’t become an issue for me until I was in my late 20s. It was up and down and I never found the perfect solution. Now, at the age of 44, I have decided to make it all about me.

I have changed my diet and started working out. I have a supportive family and they have been cheering me on and since joining the Youfit gym in Jacksonville and working with an outstanding trainer; Susan Harmon and I am reaching my goals. So far I have lost 30 pounds. It has not been easy but it has been rewarding. I am glad I made this important decision and commitment to change my life for the better it has been well worth it. For the first time in a long time, I feel better about me.
