When COVID-19 first hit, 33-year-old Becky Clements’ health suffered. She already lived a largely sedentary life, but working from home made it even worse. “Now going to my office involved going to the other side of my house, and then I’d sit back down again,” she said. 

  • At the time, the 5-foot-7 Clements weighed 310 pounds, had high blood pressure -- 155/102 mm Hg -- high cholesterol, elevated liver enzymes, and her 6.5 A1C -- average blood glucose -- reading meant she was right on the cusp of being a Type 2 diabetic.
  • “I kept hearing that, you know, people with underlying health conditions, who are overweight, prediabetic or diabetic, were having a harder time with COVID, and I knew I was sitting in a couple of those categories and they were things I could adjust,” said Clements, who was also in constant pain and didn’t sleep well.
