Mark Perry Age:59 Clinic:My Ideal Weight Center - Flower Mound, TX
Starting Weight:220 lbs
Current Weight:150 lbs
My reason for starting the Ideal Protein Protocol? My picture was taken at a Scouting Leadership event in July of 2012 and I couldn't find myself among all the photos. I was in denial of the changes that I allowed to happen to my body over the years. The scary thing is, I thought this is how one should look and feel at my age... all my friends looked like me and we all had the same medical issues... this is just the way it is. Then I found my reason... I wanted more. I knew I needed help, just not sure where to go. After interviewing several weight loss centers, the one thing in common was nobody cared, then a family member suggested Ideal Protein, I immediately fell in love with the people, the program, and of course the food.
"Losing the weight through Ideal Protein has changed my life. Not only has my life changed, but this program has affected my extended family, currently there are 15 members of my family that have benefited from Ideal Protein primarily due to my success. My motto is: Attacking Obesity, Leaving a Legacy, One Life at a Time. "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The biggest surprise was the simplicity of the program.. As long as I got out of the way and allowed the program to work, it did. I didn't try to modify it for my own personal preferences, just followed blindly. I remember the first and last week but the middle was and is a blur. 21 weeks later I won... How Cool.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
So many things, where does one start? Medications, I was taking blood pressure, cholesterol, acid reflux, and the dreaded CPAP all prescribed by my doctor... now OFF all. I sleep better, think clearer, and enjoy the taste of vegetables for the first time. However, the most obvious benefit is the way I think about life... before, where I had trouble mowing the yard, I am now running for enjoyment. I have run in over 20 races, consisting of 5K's, 10K's, and 4 half marathons and currently in training for my first full marathon scheduled this November... How is that for a 60 year old?
