Well, here we are. Almost June. Only three more weeks of the days getting longer. Growing up our North Dakota farm, we used the 16 hour days of summer sunshine to pamper our crops toward a fall harvest. Often, we children would bring food out to the fields. And, of course, those late dinners were a family delight. Ah, memories.
I am quite proud of our nascent Home Delivery program. Our mission—as you know—is to help people eat healthily and adjust their weight naturally while doing so. The Home Delivery program allows us to ship our meals anywhere in the United States. Because of gas price increases, the cost of shipping is difficult for many. We’re always trying to find a better way, which takes a lot of our company’s time and energy.
Things like the following make it worthwhile. Rosanne from New York is a Home Delivery customer. She began on March 3rd and has never missed a week. Yesterday, Rosanne called my daughter, Paula, to report significant weight loss.
Rosanne is 43 years old. When she began our program, she used a walker to shuffle around. No more! Not even a cane!
Before losing her weight, she paid a maid to do her laundry, housework, and many errands. No more! Self-reliance! And she saves enough money as a consequence that she feels she is making a profit, including the cost of our meals and shipping. Hurrah!
One more thing. Rosanne asked Paula to tell me (and I’m telling you) that she absolutely LOVES the meals.
Another of my daughters, Ruth, asked me to mention one of her favorite distributors. Okay. His name is Tom Polivka. He and his wife have Illinois distributor locations in LaGrange, Oak Brook, and Elmhurst. Tom began in LaGrange in 2004.
Previous to his Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating career, Tom participated in his family’s dairy farming business. One of the facets of his life that Ruth really appreciates is his close family. In fact, Tom and his wife, Sue, value family so much that they have adopted two children (from Russia). The children—brother and sister—were very worried that they wouldn’t be able to stay together.
Good for you Tom and Sue.
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
