Starting Weight:230 lbs
Current Weight:134 lbs
I was never "fat" until I became an adult. My sister and I were diagnosed with Hypoglycemia when we were young. My mom cooked very healthy meals for us until I moved out on my own. I began eating fast food and did not take very good care of myself. I eventually developed Type 2 Diabetes. My blood sugars stayed in the 200's. I realized I needed to do something when I noticed that for almost a whole week I ate MacAlisters French Dip, 2 potato salads and three of their cookies every night for dinner. I was literally eating myself to death. I went to the doctor desperate for help even a diet pill which I have always been against. The PA recommended Ideal Protein. I met Sara and here I am!! Thanks Sara, Luis and Diana!! No pill, no surgery!
"I’m proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because I want to improve my health. I want to not be Diabetic or have heart disease."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was surprised at how being in Ketosis can totally get rid of your cravings. I can walk past a plate of brownies without the urge to take a pinch of the brownie and eat it!!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Now that I’ve lost the weight I enjoy feeling better, having my Diabetes in "remission", and only being on one Diabetes medicine. I'm working on lowering or getting rid of all of my medicines, in a perfect world. I enjoy knowing the science behind the protocol, how the blood sugars play a role in weight gain. I can move better, and my knees do not hurt as much. I may have prolonged having knee surgery also.
