Last summer, I was pretty much confined to the lower level of my home, spending my days and months on the computer, watching TV, and eating. Following a visit to my doctor about the excruciating pain in my hip, I was referred to Ideal Transformation because I was too heavy to undergo the surgery. It was my son's heart-to-heart conversation about how much it meant to him for me to be around for my grandchildren, and this dilemma that I found myself in that day, that inspired me to reverse my course and make some important changes, starting with the way I ate.
"I'm proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because I was in deep and it took real determination to get out of my present circumstances. Keep a level head, stay motivated, surround yourself with lots of support, and say some prayers. I want to inspire others to stick with it. It works and it's worth it!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
My first surprise, and the thing that really gave me hope, was my 17-pound weight loss in the first week. I really wanted and needed the education and support from my coach at Ideal Transformation, my family, and most of all, my wife Evie, who was 95% of the reason I succeeded!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
What do enjoy most now that I’ve lost the weight? Where do I start? My lungs improved, I can breathe better, I’m able to move around a lot easier in spite of the pain in my hip. After more than four years, I fit in my vehicle and I’m out and about taking my wife to the store, spending time fixing up my son’s garage and helping him with auto detailing. And now that I've lost the weight, I'm scheduled for my hip surgery!
