ST. JOSEPH – Lakeland HealthCare’s Fitness and Lifestyle Improvement Plan (FLIP) and We Can! Healthy Berrien are teaming up to present “Weight Loss Winners: Making Your Success Last a Lifetime.” This free event will take place on Thursday, Sept. 3, at 6:30 p.m., in the Frederick S.

Lifelong Coloma resident Jodi Davis will be the evening’s keynote speaker. A mother of three, Jodi lost 162 pounds in 16 months simply by walking and eating healthier foods, and has kept the weight off for seven years. She has also inspired national audiences with her story through the pages of Woman’s World magazine and on the stages of both The Today Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Attendees will hear from two other local women who have each lost a significant amount of weight. An open panel discussion will follow.
