Have you ever been disgusted in yourself because you just can’t control what you eat? That was me before I joined Ideal Protein. I felt I was eating my life away. I had no more desire to do anything but eat. Simply put, food was controlling my life. I knew it was time to make a change in my life because I was obese and in a very dark place. I always felt so tired and had no motivation to do anything. I was embarrassed about my weight and was isolating myself from others. I hated how I looked and especially how I felt.
"I have finally regained control of my life! I’m now able to do the simple things in life like walking up the stairs without being winded, tying my shoes, putting on my socks and getting in and out of my car with ease. When I look at myself in the mirror, I am proud of how far I’ve come and look forward to what lies ahead. I can now honestly say that I love myself again! What a great feeling! I’m finally hopeful for new possibilities, more adventures and continual improved quality of life! I have so much to be thankful for and so many reasons to continue to be healthy. I’ve come to realize that anything is possible with hard work and determination and I’ve learned to never give up on the most important person in my life – ME! "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
Through my journey, I’ve been able to motivate others to live a happier and healthier life; my friends and family have started to lose weight since they’ve seen my progress. They even look to me for advice on healthy eating. This is truly empowering, especially since I've always been that person who never ate healthy and hated vegetables.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I can shop at different stores. I don’t feel discouraged when I try on new clothes because I can usually find something that fits and looks nice on me. I can exercise again - I've always wanted to try kayaking, but I was scared I wouldn’t fit in the kayak or even worse, I feared I wouldn’t be able to get out of it. This summer, I experienced kayaking for the first time and it was amazing! I’m already looking forward to snow shoeing this winter and can’t wait for next summer to do some hiking, fishing and canoeing. I no longer need a second seat when I fly. And, more importantly, my relationship with my husband has blossomed because I'm happier than I've been in years.
