2 minute read

Isn’t this something we all dream of?  And here’s a local man who’s livin’ that dream!  Robert Mansell couldn’t believe his eyes when he checked his LOTTO MAX ticket and discovered he won $726,341on the June 2 draw.

“I checked my numbers on the computer at home and saw that I won,” he said. “I went to the Mac’s Store right after that to make sure I was seeing things right.”

“I scanned it on the self-checker and took a picture, then I asked the clerk to check one more time, just to be sure,” he said.

The happy winner said he has a few ideas for his winnings, starting with paying off his mortgage.

“We’re going to pay off the house and the rest of our bills,” he said. “We also want to go on a holiday, and I’ll probably buy a new truck and trailer.”

Mansell purchased his winning LOTTO MAX ticket at Shoppers Drug Mart, located at 7 Clearview Market Way in Red Deer.

Cole’s story: Consistency is the key!

Published on

When Cole came to the Health Basics program he was at the lowest place of his life. He broke his foot, was then unable to work and was waiting for a long time for a WCB claim.  His foot did not heal, and he required surgery. In the meantime, his frustration led him to eat more and more. His weight got up to 363 pounds and he was considering bariatric surgery. He just wanted a way out of being so big, being stuck in this rut. He was at a fork in the road. He knew that a size and lifestyle was leading him to diabetes and a shorter life.

While on the bariatric surgery waiting list, his doctor sent him to Health Basics. The program got his gears going again. He started tracking his diet and one instructor helped him to tailor his exercise to using a punching bag, an activity that inspired him. Soon he was going outside the house more, riding his bike and even fishing. In September Cole was connected to the RDPCN Recreation Therapist who helped him set out workouts at the gym 4 times per week with good results. When Covid shut down the gym, Cole borrowed a bench press and has faithfully used the treadclimber in his basement. Cole has lost 36 pounds so far and has good momentum behind him to continue his loss. He has made a decision to be healthier and he has kept it. He is enjoying more energy, a better mood, a healthier diet and has positive plans for the future. Nothing will slow him down now and he sincerely doubts that he will ever need bariatric surgery as he knows he can get to a healthy weight through lifestyle.
