I am a warrior! I have been fighting a tumultuous battle with food for my entire life and I have finally WON! My best friend, Angie Costanti, and I started our IP journey together and each lost over 100 pounds in 10 months. I am a married, full-time working Mom of two young daughters. I spend my afternoons and weekends getting our children to basketball, ballet, violin lessons, Spanish lessons, Girl Scouts, and birthday parties, just to name a few. Even with all of these activities, I was able to reach my weight loss goals. I have been an elementary school teacher for over 15 years and strive to be a lifelong advocate/cheerleader for all of my students. Several of my former students have come back to school to visit and are completely shocked by my amazing transformation! My motivation was a deep desire to actually be happy in my own skin. I wanted to be happy with the woman I saw in the mirror. This weight loss journey with Ideal Protein helped give me the life I always dreamed of but never thought I could have. Thank you!
"I learned how strong I truly am. Thanks to my amazing transformation through Ideal Protein, I have been given the life I always dreamed of. I am happy, healthy, and much more confident in my abilities. I am now in a position to inspire and encourage others to reach their goals too. In only 10 short months, I lost over 100 pounds and gained life-saving knowledge. The knowledge I have gained from Ideal Protein is endless and I am bursting to share it with others. As a busy working Mom, we are often so focused on taking care of others that we neglect ourselves. Following the Ideal Protein protocol was one way I could finally do something for myself, which in turn, strengthened my family and my local community. I am a strong, food warrior who won a lifelong battle!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
What surprised me most was my own personal strength. I am much stronger than I thought. I have been able to resist licking my finger while cooking for my children. I have had the strength to avoid unhealthy foods during holidays, parties, and stressful times in my life. I used food as an emotional comfort, but now I have the strength to cope with stress successfully.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Now that I have lost the weight, I love sharing my new knowledge about Ideal Protein with others who are struggling to reach their goals. I love to encourage others and celebrate alongside them as they navigate their path. We have inspired over 20 people to start Ideal Protein and I continually check in on all of them as another support. I also enjoy participating in physical activities with my family and attending workout classes (IN PUBLIC), something I use to avoid. I no longer hide behind people or objects while having my picture taken. I now enjoy shopping for clothes in normal stores, rather than in the over-sized Men’s department. I use to wear long sleeves year-round (and sweat in the summer) because I was ashamed to show my arms. On a recent celebration trip to Hawaii, I wore a strapless dress to a Luau. Victory!
