I like to tell people this all started with a tick—an actual tick bite to my scalp. But, realistically, I have been over weight my entire life and suffered from chronic joint pain most of my adult life. My doctor said the tick bite was the least of my issues and scheduled me for a heart test, colonoscopy and referred me to an Arthritis specialist. Before I left his office, he handed me a brochure for Ideal Protein and suggested I make an appointment—TODAY. I knew changes needed to be made and I needed help. The next day, I visited the colonoscopy doctor who fortunately was blunt enough to say all the things that needed to be said. I asked him what he thought about the Ideal Protein diet—his exact words: “This is the ONLY diet you will succeed at. There is nothing else out there that will help you.” I called the IP Clinic when I got home and the next day I met my coach—Matt. This is when my new life began. Later that month, I found out the chronic join pain was Rheumatoid Arthritis. Within one month of weight loss, my join pain was gone.
"I have soooooo much more living to do. I want to make a difference and help people see what an amazing life you can have during and after Ideal Protein. We are all worth the time and effort. "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was surprised at how good I felt in such a short block of time. And because of that, I wanted to continue down this path. To be virtually pain-free was new and exciting to me. My meal prep was easier and tastier than I was expecting too. Did you know vegetables could taste THAT GOOD with nothing on them? :-)
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
What I enjoy the most now that I've lost the weight is waking up every morning, pain-free and deciding if it will be an 8- or 20-mile bike ride before breakfast. Also, having the guess work taken out of my meal planning—I know exactly what works for me now. Okay, it is pretty cool to be able to shop at a regular store for the first time EVER.
