I stepped on the scale twice just to make sure, but now, for the first time I can remember in the last 20 years... I WEIGH LESS THAN 200 POUNDS!!! BOOOOM!!
In the last week, I lost another 3.4 pounds, bringing my weight down to 199.4 (with clothes on) with You First and the Ideal Protein plan (link)! If you want to lose weight, I recommend clicking the link and contacting Dylan about an appointment.
I've shed 114 pounds so far. This also means I have lost weight each week since I began using the Ideal Protein plan with You First 27 weeks ago. My current average weight loss is over 4-pounds per week.
People tell my how much my tummy has slimmed down, and now I say, "Hey... my EYES are up here!" LOL!
Seriously, though. I now receive a lot of congratulations and compliments, and also several who say my weight loss is 'inspirational.'
I appreciate that and am humbled by it. Having been trapped in my overweight body for so many years, I can understand how seeing a huge weight loss could be so moving. But 'inspirational' is a hard concept for me to grasp.
Why? Because I am not really doing anything complicated. I'm eating the Ideal Protein foods the plan tells me to plus approved meats/vegetables in the proper amounts, taking vitamin supplements, drinking lots of water, and walking.
So with that in mind, my favorite thing to hear is "If Brian Ross can do it, SO CAN I!"
THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A WEIGHT LOSS PLAN:
27 weeks ago, when I made the key decision to start losing weight and chose You First/Ideal Protein as my vehicle, I made it based on ONE CRITICAL FACTOR.
Ideal Protein has an exit plan.
Lots of diets can help you lose weight. What happens when you are finished and stop using the diet, though?
With Ideal Protein, once I've reached my goal weight, I'll go through Phases 2, 3, and 4 to ease back into eating regular foods in the proper varieties and amounts.
You don't just quit IP cold turkey. You First/Ideal Protein want you to learn how to maintain the healthy habits that will keep you at the proper weight.
HOW DOES THE PLAN MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH DURING WEIGHT LOSS?
Is it a plan that will leave you feeling run down? Does it weaken your muscles or preserve your muscle mass? These are important concerns. On the Ideal Protein plan, I have reduced the volume of food/calories, carbs, sugars and fats I consume. That's for sure.
With Ideal Protein, I feel like I have more energy through the day and better health overall. Also, my cravings for comfort foods subsided within the first few weeks-- and now they are easy to resist.
Thanks again for all the encouragement. If you are overweight, I hope my weight loss journey encourages you to make your own, and to give You First a call. ~Brian
