Starting Weight:254 lbs
Current Weight:169 lbs
I was 220-300 pounds most of my adult life, but I decided in 2013 that I would try one more program. I was in my 50's and feeling hopeless, but I wanted to live life! I wanted to get in the Disneyland rides, fit in a kayak, and go biking with my youngest kids before they grew up. Because of Ideal Protein and coach Jackie, I lost 85 pounds in 7 months and I've been able to do all of these things and more! After losing the weight my life changed, my career changed, and I've been an Ideal Protein consultant for almost 5 years! This journey is lifelong for me, but I'm able to maintain my improved health and show others that real people CAN win this battle even after decades of failed attempts.
"I'm proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because it allowed me to live more fully, be a participant in my kids lives, and educate others about the possibility of improved health through my work with Ideal Protein. This experience has truly changed my life in all possible ways!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was surprised at how quickly and consistently the pounds came off (I was post menopausal and still I lost an average of 2.7 pounds per week!). I was also surprised how my tastes changed, my energy level improved quickly, and my knee pain was gone in just 8 days.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Now that I’ve lost the weight, the thing I enjoy the most is being active. I've done so many things I could never have done before. Just last week I toured Washington DC for 7 days; miles of walking and felt great! This is almost 5 years after I lost weight with IP! I also love how much I've learned about food, understanding my choices, human physiology, and the consequences of the lifestyle choices I make.
