Starting Weight:293 lbs
Current Weight:160 lbs
I have struggled with my weight and self-image since I was a young girl. After entering puberty, I became a chubby person. As I got older my self-image became non-existent. I was fat and would always be fat. Fast forward to my 30s and having 4 kids I had resigned myself to the fact that I would always be big. I had spent some periods of time trying to take weight off and would have some measure of success but slowly I would return to old habits of emotional eating and the weight returned and had brought some friends with it. "Being thin was just not in the cards for me," I would keep telling myself. My husband, who similarly has struggled with his weight, came to me and wanted to make a change in his health. I knew that some family members had experienced success on ideal protein and so we investigated it. After consulting our family doctor, we chose to embark on the Ideal Protein Journey. I joined hopeful but skeptically.
"I'm proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because I can be a more confident wife and mother. Most of all, I am proud that my husband and I made this commitment together. Without his constant encouragement, especially during the times of struggle to stay the course, I would not have an amazing transformation to share. This journey has strengthened our partnership and relationship in a whole new way. I am proud of what we have accomplished together and am really looking forward to the rest of this new life of health and freedom we have made."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was embarrassed to step on the scale at that first visit and own the number that stared back at me. I knew I was big…but 293 lbs big! That was a real low point for me. Janice, my coach, reminded me that would be the last day I saw that number. She asked me to give her 1 month which became a life changing year!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Now that I have lost the weight, I realize how much it was holding me back. I am enjoying my life, I feel, for the first time. I have a lot more confidence in myself out in the world. I don't feel the need to hide behind others. I went zip-lining this summer! I was terrified…but of the heights, not of being too heavy. I enjoy doing activities with my family, like camping, swimming, and jumping on the trampoline, things my weight/self-esteem kept me from for many years. I enjoy walking into a store and not being limited to 1 small section of clothing. I can choose clothes that I want…not clothes that "will do" because they fit.
