HAWTHORNE, N.J. -- Hawthorne resident Teresa Dooley was able to lose more than 50 pounds with the help of ShopRite of Hoboken’s Registered Dietitian Jenna Werner.
Dooley struggled with her weight for years while battling diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
“My blood work numbers were off the charts and not in a good way,” Dooley, who is the scanning coordinator at ShopRite of Hoboken, said in a statement. “I am thrilled to say that all has changed. My A1c level has dropped from 9.4 to 5.7; my LDL cholesterol is down to 114 from over 140 and my triglycerides have dropped to 74 from 136.”
Dooley took short walks and exercised at home following along with a DVD series. She soon graduated to 5K and 10K walks. She coupled her workout regiment with regular meetings with Werner for nutrition counseling.
Werner has since moved on to become ShopRite's manager of corporate retail health and wellness. Elisabeth Holtzer has taken over as the registered dietician at ShopRite of Hoboken.
