THELMA J. WAYLER
A woman who started her own business when women “just didn’t do that,” Thelma founded Green Mountain at Fox Run at the age of 50 after an illustrious and prolific career as a nutritionist, diabetes educator, teacher and author. Considered by many as one of the visionaries who founded the non-diet movement (diets don’t work), Thelma espoused an approach for long-term weight management based on lifestyle change and self-care, rejecting popular diet remedies of ‘being good,’ counting calories, daily weighing, good food/bad food and more.
