In 2014, I was the heaviest that I had ever been. I suddenly became very ill, and was hospitalized in the ICU for several weeks. I was told that I needed surgery to correct an undiagnosed heart condition, but my weight and poor health made the doctors fearful that I might not survive the operation. This period was the most frightening time of my life. After the surgery and recovery, my cardiologist informed me that I still needed to lose weight, and recommended the Ideal Protein protocol. At first, I was hesitant, as I had been unsuccessful with so many other diets. However, I soon discovered that the Ideal Protein protocol was not just a diet; it was a lifestyle change. With the help of the IP protocol, my life is happier and healthier, and I can now enjoy activities that I once thought were impossible. I have learned so much, and this has helped me to keep the weight off, along with the support of a great coach. I have been blessed with the opportunity to become an IP coach myself, and share my journey with others and help them. Thanks to Ideal Protein, I can now finally live the life I was meant to have!!
"I’m proud that I committed to my amazing transformation because I can finally be the person that I always wanted to be. I have the confidence and motivation to make the changes that I need to make, when I need to make them. Ideal Protein helped me stop making excuses and start making progress!! Now I can make many happy memories with my friends and family!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The thing that surprised me most about my journey was that I was not craving the foods that I once thought I could not live without. I was also surprised to find that I could enjoy a social event without over-indulging on the food; the focus of the event could be about the company, like it should be!!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
There are so many things I enjoy much more now that I have lost the weight. My health and mobility has drastically improved, and I feel much better! I love that I can fit in airplane seats or stadium seats without spilling over into the next seat. I love that I can breathe while walking up stairs. It is amazing to be able to tie my shoes without feeling like I need a nap afterwards. I enjoy outside activities much more, and I really enjoy shopping for clothes and having such a nice selection. What I enjoy most of all is being in control of my life, and the sense of peace that it brings.
