My name is Judy Cantrelle. I am the Ideal Protein coach at Rehab Access in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. I am 52 years old, married with 2 adult children. I was always interested in eating healthy and exercising. When I was in my early to mid 30's, I was a self proclaimed "gym rat". I was in the gym lifting weights at least 5 days a week. I discovered that I had degenerative disc disease, especially in my lower back and in my neck. I was hurting so badly that I was unable to work out anymore. I couldn't walk, sit, stand or lay down for more than 10 minutes without my back hurting. Instead of continuing to eat healthy, I just gave up. I spent 2 years on my sofa, eating junk and taking anything that would make the pain stop. Finally in 2015 I had 2 back surgeries. Thank God, the second one, a L4, L5, S1 fusion was successful. I slowly got my life back! I was approached by Rehab Access to become the new Ideal Protein coach, and, as they say, the rest is history.
"Now I am able to help guide others through this amazing process to help them achieve their "balanced" life!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was surprised by how simple the protocol was to follow. I did it thru the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays, and I didn't slip once. My family voted my plate "Most Colorful" for Thanksgiving!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I am enjoying trying to rediscover what I can and cannot do with my new back. I still have limitations due to the neck problems. I am starting to slowly incorporate different exercises back into my life. I had to accept the fact that I won't be pushing weights like I used to (just yet anyway)! I have gained about 5 pounds since my phase off, but I'm fine with that! I have found a balance that I love in my life.
