EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – A family that loses weight together looks great together!

Pam Wrucke and her son and daughter, Connor and Christian, decided it was time to do something about their weight.

For Pam and Conner, it was about getting healthy and feeling better.

Christian wanted to shed some pounds and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.

The Wrucke women were the first to start a weight loss journey, but after a health scare, Connor decided that he needed to do something to get his health and weight in check.

Their lifestyle change and weight loss have allowed the Wrucke’s to get more active and enjoy things they never thought they would.

Pam, who is one tough mother, started running and has completed a Tough Mudder challenge and has competed in several half marathons and shows no signs of slowing down.

The family had help from the Profile program that assists with meal planning, coaching, and support.

The Wrucke family is a great example of how you can do so much more than you ever expected with hard work, determination, and a little help from a support system.
