Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— Seattle Sutton, creator of the weight loss program “Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating”, met with fans Wednesday at the Illinois Theater Center, 371 Artist Walk in Park Forest for a “motivational conversation.”
Christine Blue, director of the Park Forest Health Department, spoke on behalf of nurses.
“Nurses have many quiet victories,” Blue said. “Their victories are accepted as standard.”
Sutton was presented with the Life Time award by Kennina Ceasar, professional sales representative with the Johnson and Johnson Company.
“Tonight focuses the attention on someone who has helped with diabetes,” Ceasar said.
Sutton was thankful to receive the award, and thanked everyone for coming out. Sutton spoke about her healthy eating program and her background in nursing. Sutton said she was working as a nurse in her husband’s practice and was trying to help patients with diabetes.
“I thought, someone should do it for them so they can see the results,” Sutton said. “I knew my meals would have to be the healthiest with no gimmicks.”
Sutton also held a raffle for merchandise, including weeks of the meal plan, a wrist watch, one of Sutton’s books, and gift certificates. Sutton also held a book signing after the presentation.
“It’s always nice to receive things,” Sutton said.
Crete resident Joe Balogh, 40, who was in attendance, had been on Sutton’s plan and had positive results.
“It was a big change for me eating healthy foods. I’m still eating the meals and it’s changed my taste in foods,” Balogh said. “I figure it would be nice to meet her and share my experience.”
