It wasn't something I dreaded. It wasn't
a chore. It was just enjoyment for me."
Today, Rhonda uses her Pedego to
commute to work (a 38 mile round trip
that she calls her "happy place"), as an
alternative form of transportation for
short errands, and for fun recreational
rides with her husband.
"It's not about the weight I've lost,"
she says. "It's about the life that I've
gained. I was merely existing, and
today I'm truly living my life."
Rhonda tried every diet plan, supplement,
and program imaginable to lose weight.
"I was desperate," she says. "You name it,
I've done it."
None of these things worked for her, and
it was absolutely devastating. With each
new failure she would feel ashamed and
beat herself up, and it would be a long
time before she was willing to try again.
Then she tried a Pedego Electric Bike.
"The fi rst time I rode a Pedego, it was
freedom to me. It was back to being a kid
again. It was the best feeling I'd felt in a
long time. The smile I had on my face when
I got back -- I swear I had it for days."
Because her mobility was so limited,
the Pedego was a perfect stepping stone
to becoming active again. It empowered
her to get some exercise, fresh air, and
social interaction -- and it was fun.
"Riding my Pedego was something
that I wanted to continue to do.
It was something
that I wanted to
continue to do. It
wasn't something
I dreaded. It wasn't
a chore. It was just
enjoyment for me.
