Starting Weight:252 lbs
Current Weight:169 lbs
I started Ideal Protein December 30th, 2009. I didn't start on New Year's Day. I could not take another New Year's resolution that I failed. It took me 6 months to lose 83 pounds. I kept it ALL off for 3.5 years and have kept MOST of it off for almost 9 years now! I have had to do more than my share of "tune-ups" and still struggle not to eat my life stresses. I LOVE the life that I have now, and will continue with a lifestyle that is healthy and fun. For me, it was about health and being able to have the life that I deserve. I do not want the health issues that eventually come with obesity.
"I have learned that I am worth the freedom of a healthy life. "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I could move so much better! I was surprised at how quickly I kept having to go down in clothing size. I lost 13 inches off of my waist and 12 off of my hips! I could not believe the freedom the first time I was able to shop in the "regular" department and not the fat women's department!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
To be honest, I still struggle with my relationship with food. Ideal Protein has taught me so much about not running to sugar when things go wrong. I accept the fact that I will always have to watch what I eat, and make more careful choices, but not continuing to gain weight year after year is the best. It is not inevitable that you have to gain weight as you grow older.
