Supporting each other, in health

Together, in health.  Bindhu and her husband, Somasundaram, decided to take up the D9 programme together.  Somasundaram is diabetic and has high blood pressure and knew that he had to take action to improve his diet and lifestyle.  Bindhu wanted to get fitter, lighter and more energetic.    

They had already started working-out together at the same training facility and wanted to improve their nutrition habits too.  Along with some friends, they signed up for D9's health coaching programme (then called 'the FLC'), wanting to support each other through the process.  

By the end of the first FLC, Somasundaram and Bindu had both lost more than 5% of their respective starting weights.  They loved the programme so much and felt so motivated that they signed up again a year later and saw great results once more!

Here's what Somasundaram says about the experience:

"You guys are really amazing and made me feel the same. As I am a diabetic and hypertensive I felt D9 helped me in a clean food habits with zero intake of white sugar, chocolate or any food which is sweeter other than fruit - This actually surprised me "Yes I Can" never thought before it is possible. A big shout out for this!

Your continuous guidance and motivation with a strategy of taking this challenge as a team indirectly made me to be more sincere in maintaining the points. Best learning in D9 is you guys made me aware of what I eat and how much I eat. Thanks D9 team for this great experience and learning to lead a healthier lifestyle. Good must give more noise, I wish the purpose of this initiative and app should reach many for a better living."

In Bindhu's words:

"The D9 challenge has helped me to lose weight and reduce in inches. it made me feel light and my workouts have been easier and more effective. I feel more confident now due to D9 and this has truly been helpful and I also felt happy sharing my ways to my friends and family.

Now I also have a faster pace while walking which I think is truly motivating and it's all because of the FLC challenge and the idea of forming a team has been truly helpful. Thank you so much for this wonderful journey, D9 team. I want this to reach more people to have everyone live a healthier and lead a good life style."
