Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and Women in Trucking selected Theresa Johnson as the winner of the Women in Trucking and Roadside Medical Health Challenge after she shed 42 pounds.
Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab asked participants to make a commitment to their health and provided them with tools including a Roadside Medical Driver Body Fuel kit, free 30-day health checks and free personal coaching from Bob Perry, the Trucker Trainer.
“I wanted to do the Challenge because I was overweight and tired. I wasn’t able to keep up with my granddaughter,” Johnson said. “Now I have three grandchildren, and I’m able to do a lot more with them. My family has been so supportive throughout the Challenge, and my husband Jon has lost 15-20 pounds himself.”
Johnson receives a $100 gift certificate from GiftCertificates.com; free Roadside Medical Driver Body Fuel product for one year; a four-day, three-night stay in Las Vegas including airfare, hotel and $300 spending money; a workout session and a healthy grocery shopping trip with Bob Perry while in Las Vegas; a photo shoot for “Challenge” magazine; a profile on the Roadside Medical Clinic + Lab and Women in Trucking websites; and inclusion in national media announcements. She also will receive a compactable bike provided by EverYoung Folding Bicycles.
Johnson was honored at the Great American Trucking Show in August during the Midnight Trucking Radio Network VIP Party and the Women in Trucking Reception.
Johnson is a team driver with her husband, except when they visit their family in Kentucky and Kansas. Although the official Health Challenge is over, Johnson is committed to continuing her new lifestyle.
Runners up were Cindy Stowe of Wills Point, Texas, who lost 39 pounds, and Rachel Barnett of Akron, Ohio, who dropped 10 pounds. Additional participants each lost 9 pounds including Linda Caffee, Kathy St. Clair and Angela Lecomte.
