Starting Weight:460 lbs
Current Weight:290 lbs
I had been kicking the idea of getting into a healthier lifestyle for while. However, I always found a reason to keep putting the idea on the back-burner. As a teenager and up to my early 20s I played organized basketball and was very active but, once I joined the real world and started my career, priorities changed and building a name for myself became my #1 goal. This made me put (consciously) my health and personal life on second place. Health wise I knew I was not in a good place. Doctors were concerned about my blood pressure and cholesterol levels and kept advising on changing my lifestyle but, I failed to do something about it. Late 2016 I started a new work assignment that required a lot of travel. Flights (short and long) were incredibly uncomfortable and potential health concerns while abroad kept increasing so, I knew I had to do something about it.
"It has given me the chance to regain control of my health and life. "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I have lost the weight "quickly". I'm still on phase 1, but I have managed to drop close to 10 yrs of weight gain at an incredible pace by following the protocol. I have also learned to eat vegetables which to most is not that big of a deal but for me it is new territory. There still work to be done.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
For the first time in many (many) years I feel like my health, energy levels and mobility, are where they should be. I'm also able to fit properly in plane seats and sleep full nights (which I cannot recall when it last happened before IP). Being able to shop for clothes have become an easier task as I do not rely on specialty stores anymore.
