Pastor Stan Will and his wife Thelma visited Uchee Pines Lifestyle Center before, but not until recently did he go through the 17-day program. Prior to coming he couldn’t walk the half mile around their home without huffing and puffing, and needing to stop and rest when ascending the hill. After a couple of weeks at Uchee Pines he was walking two and three miles up and down hills.

Pastor Will reflects on his time at Uchee Pines: “I benefited greatly and am continuing to do what I learned. I have already lost 5 lbs, and want to lose another five. It was evident that the doctors were most willing with counsel and treatments to help those who needed attention; and that attitude was reflected by the staff that assisted us.

“From 6:30 in the morning until 8 p.m. everyone cheerfully encouraged and taught us the principles of healthful living. Personally, I gained a lot of benefit through the daily seminars. I even made a loaf of bread, mixing it by hand. By the way, it turned out to be quite good.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and look forward to visiting again.”
