Last time we checked in with TruVision Health Associate Stephanie Fincher, we learned a lot about the journey she’s been on. She went from simply enjoying the products the company offers to experiencing incredible success (163 pounds lost!) to making a daily commitment to abide by the 10K Pledge. She saw her life and lifestyle change in a fairly short amount of time.

Now we have more to add to her story. After all, a lot can happen in a few months.

January of next year will be an anniversary of sorts for Stephanie: it will mark two full years of her doing the 10K Pledge (10,000+ steps a day). In fact, Fitbit was so impressed with her consistency, they reached out to her. They chose her to beta test a new product they have plans to release. Because she signed a nondisclosure with the company, she can’t say much about it, but she’s been testing it out for several weeks. She advises them on their product by offering daily feedback, something she never even imagined she’d be doing.

“Without TruVision Health, I’d have never even had a Fitbit in the first place,” she says. “I wouldn’t have committed to walking either. And I’m still doing it. I’m walking every day.”

In addition to that excitement, her business continues to grow. Just this month, she’ll add an estimated 120 more people to her business. One woman in her organization has been personally responsible for adding 40 people in the last month-and-a-half alone.

Those kinds of numbers don’t lie, though Stephanie is quick to add it’s about so much more than that. For her, it’s about helping others build and improve their self-esteem. The more she can provide that kind of service, the more rewarding her life is, she says.

“I know how it is to be judged. When I can connect with others and allow them to do away with those kinds of destructive feelings, I feel like I’m doing what I need to be doing.”

Oh, and remember the 163 pounds she lost? Thanks to TruControl, she’s been able to say goodbye to a few more. The new number of pounds lost is now an incredible 167.

Congratulations, Stephanie! We’re amazed by all you’re doing. We can’t wait to see what happens next.
