Starting Weight:358 lbs
Current Weight:245 lbs
I have been dieting for 30 years, most were successful initially, and none were successful long-term. I decided that I really couldn’t be successful by myself and needed help. My cardiologist suggested Ideal Protein and I checked out their guiding principles, the science behind their solutions, the after-care process and checked out what I needed to make a longer-term decision. I waited until after my holidays and then took the plunge to try the diet system. I had given my word to the cardiologist that I would try it and did not want to continue the slow decline of my health for the next few years.
"I have changed the trajectory of my life, enjoy companionship with family and friends, and am able to give back a little more to my community. This program has replaced “the life I have lived” with “living the life I want have”."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The journey was initially similar to all of the diets I had tried, same voices, same messages and same claims. At about the 3rd or 4th week, I woke up to the realization that I was not hungry and was not dying to eat. Frankly, I thought that I might just be getting sick or catching a virus of some sort.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I guess I really enjoy putting on my seat belt of my car, not having to inhale or fake wearing it. I enjoy some of the smaller things: tying my shoes; buying clothing from regular stores; planning what to eat rather than just eating everything; putting on my socks; sitting in a regular chair; not being stared at for being so heavy; I like ordering at a restaurant and not asking for extra sour cream or extra butter. I like myself a whole lot better.
