Starting Weight:290 lbs
Current Weight:190 lbs
At the age of 35, I found myself well overweight for a heart patient. I was born with 3 heart defects diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression. My lifestyle was dormant as I slept most of the day and night. After many treatments for atrial fibrillation including 18 hospitalizations in a year, the cardiologist said there was nothing more that could be done unless I lost the weight. With that and the frightening thought of ending up in a nursing home before the age of 40, it was time to take charge.
"I needed Ideal Protein in order to live. I now have a bright future and wonderful outlook on life. If there is something I want to make happen, I have the power to make it happen. Jen, my coach at Ideal Protein was phenomenal in helping me achieve my goal and encouraged me every inch and pound of the way! "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The transformation was fast and made me feel so much better. I gained more energy. Once the weight started leaving, there were no more hospitalizations for the atrial fib. Losing the weight has set me up for a successful lifestyle and for open heart surgery to correct the birth defects. The healing has been easier because there is less weight and more strength and ability to move.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
Now that I've lost the weight, my energy level has increased tremendously, I enjoy walking and various activities. I take good care of myself and have improved my appearance and have become more confident. The depression has lessened and still, no more hospitalizations for Afib. Prior to starting Ideal Protein, there was little to no social life. Now I enjoy meeting people and believe that there are no strangers. I'm currently pursuing a relationship with a longtime friend.
