I have always struggled with my weight since about grade 6 or so. I have tried to get healthy several times throughout the years and have never been able to find something that truly worked for me. I often found myself giving up and feeling defeated. A year and a half ago I found myself going to bed every night feeling like I may not wake up in the morning. I would pray to God to look after my family if this was in-fact my last night. I got tired of living in fear and needed to face my problem head on. I booked an appointment to see my family doctor and explained my struggle with weight loss to him. We got the typical blood work necessary done and surprisingly it came back that I was completely healthy. I knew it was just a matter of time before my bad habits caught up to me. Feeling like surgery was my only hope to get my life back, I asked him what I should do? He asked me to give a diet one more try, and the Ideal Protein Protocol is what would get me where I needed to go.
"I'm proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because I was tired of living in the shadow of my own life. I am proud of who I am. I know that I am in control of my life and that I don't need to let food dictate the quality of my life. I can be a good example to my children of how to live a healthier life. I am also so blessed to have the support of my wife through this journey that I owe my success to her. This is truly a life changing program! Thank you, Ideal Protein!"
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was very skeptical of the protocol at first. Maybe that it wouldn't work for me, or that it might only get me so far, like so many others beforehand. I was very pleased to see how consistent the protocol was and that I just needed to take it one choice at a time, one day at a time. It was very manageable. Plus, there was no exercise!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I am not done yet, however, if I am going to be honest about this, I would have to say that I love that I can buy clothes anywhere I want. I am also not limited to what I am able to do physically. I have always been a hard worker but now any work that I do is much easier, and I am eager to do it. Since my wife and I did this journey together, we took our kids camping this last summer, which was something we never felt we were able to do because of our weight. Losing the weight has freed us from our limits. We can do anything we want to and that feels great! I have also enjoyed that my experience has helped others begin their journey. As cliche as it sounds, if I can do it, anyone can!
