Starting Weight:278 lbs
Current Weight:148 lbs
I’ve lost 100lbs several times in my life. I’ve lost 50lbs numerous times which I don’t care to count. When I went back home to Minnesota to see and help my mom as she aged, my sister mentioned a program her friend was on and was losing weight and losing weight fast. I learned of a seminar regarding Ideal Protein in a small town an hour away and went. During the seminar, I asked questions and the main question I wanted answered was, “How can I help my head?” I needed to know how I can change my thinking about how and what I eat. Two weeks later, on May 12, 2016, I started the program. Being an Alaska resident, I knew I needed a coach at home. I found and reached out to (Dylan at) Ideal Health in Anchorage, Alaska for an appointment on May 24th, 2016. My coach was very knowledgeable, answered my questions, knew the IP science, everything I needed to keep going and understand why I am on this train. Being 278 lbs and a full-blown diabetic with syndrome X/metabolic syndrome, this is exactly what I needed. I was taking medications costing over $8,000 a month in an attempt to control my diabetes. My Ideal Health coach taught me the four phases of the protocol. I understood and knew where I was going which I credit Ideal Health for the very knowledgeable support I needed to continue.
"“I’m proud that I committed to my amazing Transformation because I now have an unstoppable passion to pass Ideal Protein on as a coach. I feel better now at 64 than I did at 20 years old! I feel that the Ideal Protein program and my team at Ideal Health have been a gift from God that has given me a new life!” "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
Three months after I started IP, I went back to weigh in as normal and I had only lost less than a pound. I was fired up and wanted my coach to explain to me how I had only lost less than a pound when all the weeks prior I was consistently losing 3.7 lbs and I am neurotic. My journal was filled out, no deviations and then my measurements were taken, it showed I lost over seven inches. Booyah!! I hit my sweet spot, losing weight and inches, journaling everything I ate and following the protocol made me realize Ideal Protein will change my life.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Due to being on an airplane every two months, I noticed my changes. I now no longer needed an extender for the seat belt, I could now sit in the exit row, I got through the aisles easier and no longer had to squeeze my arms into my seat so I didn’t spill over to my neighbor. I still journal and prepare my foods for the upcoming week or to travel. I became a pro at packing a carry-on size cooler with everything I may need to eat to stay within the protocol. My coach begged me to join him as a coach, I resisted and finally gave in due to my passion of wanting to help others on their journey of this amazing lifestyle change. I have a passion to make others around me healthier like me. I no longer take near the $8000 worth of diabetic medications. I truly believe that Ideal Protein saved my life.
