5 questions with No Sweat contributor Missy Raiger

Missy Miller

Name: Missy (Miller) Raiger
Lives in: Lebanon (I work for the Lebanon Daily News)

1. Current health or fitness goal? I’d like to lose about 15 to 20 pounds, but my ultimate goal is to remain heart healthy and not have to rely on medication(s) as I age.

2. Favorite place to sweat? I work out at New York Fitness on Route 72 in Lebanon OR the best place ever…a local park or hiking trail.

3. A tip for eating well? Eat what you enjoy, just eat correct portions.

This submitted photo of Missy Raiger was taken two weeks before her gastric bypass surgery about five years ago at Hershey Medical Center. Today, she’s 125 pounds lighter.

4. Best lesson learned about wellness? Read labels! For every 100 calories in an item, there should be only 3 grams of total fat or less….if there is more, it goes back on the shelf. Also when shopping in a grocery store, shop the perimeter.

5. Top 3 songs on your workout playlists? I listen to anything by Meatloaf (“Bat Out of Hell”). I also LOVE Celtic music, so bagpipes and fiddles are mood enhancing for me. :)
