I DID IT!!! PHASE 1 IS DONE! I've lost 146.2 pounds in 39 weeks with You First on the Ideal Protein plan-- and I turned 50 in October. (link) Scroll down for the new photo gallery!Now, I'm in Phase 2 and begin my weight maintenance and the healthy reintegration of regular foods.
My goal was 165, which is probably what I truly weigh now... naked.
I started at 313.6 pounds on May 4th, 2017 (clothed). On February 1, I weighed in at 167.4 pounds. Not only have I dropped 146.2 pounds, but along the way I dropped DOZENS of inches from all around my body, and I dropped 2 PRESCRIPTIONS. I no longer take testosterone injections and I no longer need to wear prescription compression socks for my water retention (edema).
To celebrate, I did a few different things today. First, per the Phase 2 guidelines, I dropped one Ideal Protein product meal and replaced it with a home cooked lunch (beef/veggie stir fry). And this morning, I bought a new SIZE SMALL SHIRT, and a membership at the Dimond Athletic Club. Now that I'm getting more protein, I want to start building muscle and preparing for the 100-mile Clean Air Challenge bike ride (link). Here is a new photo gallery, including my latest before/after pic. The captions in the gallery below might be a bit small though.
I have found it very rewarding to help others find their way to a lower weight & healthier lifestyle. I'm now assisting my health coach Dylan 2 or 3 days a week at You First, reaching out to people starting in Phase 1, and speaking at our free seminars. Also, I'm going to begin the training to become a health coach myself. I believe I could help even more people as a coach who has also successfully used the plan.
I'd love to see you there. Get all the info from Dylan and me, and make an informed decision about Ideal Protein-- and save money!
