90 POUNDS LOST! Brian Describes 300 Pound Horrors!
90 POUNDS!! I lost about 3 1/2 pounds this week (week 19) bring me to 90.6 pounds lost total since I started on Ideal Protein with You First back in May at 313 pounds!
This is the most weight I have ever lost. I've tried other diet/exercise plans and even lost weight in basic training in the 80's, but Ideal Protein has given me the best results.
Even with this grainy pic, I think you can see the difference that 90 pounds can make in a body. What you can't see is how much healthier I feel, with more energy all day. I no longer feel run down, nor do I feel the need to comfort myself with food--no more 'eating my emotions.'
Don't get me wrong, I still get cravings, mostly if I SMELL delicious food cooking, but I'm strong enough to resist. If there's no aroma, I don't seem to feel the cravings. Walking down the candy aisle? No prob!
SMALLER WAIST-BIGGER POSSIBLITIES!
On my notes, you can see that I have LOST 43 INCHES total off my torso measurements (chest, ribcage, waist, hips).
What this means for me personally is that I have a lot more mobility & comfort. I don't dread the daily tasks like reaching my feet to wash them or to tie my shoelaces--no more holding my breath each time I put on a shoe or a sock.
My tummy used to be this huge MEDICINE BALL sized lump that made it extremely difficult to bend over. My car steering wheel would rub it as I drove.And AIRLINE TRAVEL was something I used to dread. I could tell people were hoping that I wasn't going to wind up in the empty seat next to them, spilling over into my neighbors' seats.
Then I had to worry about whether I'd fit between the armrests-- if I could endure the tight squeeze. I had to extend the seat belt ALL THE WAY and hope I didn't need an extension. And if my feet swelled at high altitude, I debated whether or not to remove my shoes because putting them on again in a cramped airline aisle was another challenge for my size. Don't even get me started on the airplane lavatory.
Why am I revealing all of this embarrassing info about myself? Because if YOU have experienced anything like this, I want you to know that I have been there too, and THERE IS A WAY OUT!I'm not this young paratrooper anymore. After my discharge and years of getting heavier, age became another excuse I used for not losing weight. But at 49 years old, I've lost 90 pounds and I'm still going.
What does it take?
It takes ONE DECISION.
When I think about it, I had to reach a tipping point in my life. Trouble in my life was accumulating, all of it caused or worsened by my weight. This included my back problems, my joint pains, and then my emergency room visit for gastric distress-- my medications and follow-up treatments. Finally, I'd HAD ENOUGH and realized that if I wanted a change, I had to do something different.
Thankfully, I found (and scrutinized) Ideal Protein with You First.(link here)
What sold me was that it wasn't just a diet plan that stops cold once you reach your target weight.
Lots of weight loss plans stop cold at the end. But then you return to old eating habits and put on the weight again (it happened to me!). Ideal Protein has 4 phases, designed to help you lose weight, then carefully reintegrate proper foods in the right portions, while weening you off of the Ideal Protein plan.
Ideal Protein with You First has been life changing for me. I'd love it to work for you, too. I recommend that you contact Dylan & Rachel at You First and set up a consultation.
Click the photos for the website link, orcall You First at 562-6181. You can also drop by You First in the Webb Wellness Center in Anchorage- on Northern Lights between Arctic & Spenard. I think you'll be glad to take that first step. ~Brian
