Weigh 2 Go! offers encouragement and inspiration from someone who understands how challenging it is to lose weight and keep it off.
Cathy Parkes, former leader of Weigh 2 Go, recently moved to San Diego, CA after living in Austin, TX for over 11 years. She is married with 2 daughters, ages 9 and 10. She was a Systems Manager at Procter and Gamble for 8 years, and has a great deal of experience leading weight loss support groups.
Like many women, she has struggled with her weight for most of her adult life. Ten years ago she lost approximately 20 pounds and has been able to keep it off through diet, exercise, and the support of her friends. Losing weight (and keeping it off) is hard work, and Cathy is a firm believer that being a part of a support group can help make your journey more fun and successful.
Cathy started Weigh 2 Go! to help her friends and neighbors meet their weight loss goals. The group was so successful that she decided to expand it to other communities around Austin. For a detailed account of Cathy’s weight loss journey, click here.
