Making the decision and trying to lose weight can be challenging. There are several factors that can affect your efforts. Of those, making changes to your diet, exercise and lifestyle are key.
Meet Julie and read her weight loss story.
Four years ago, my friends and I went out to dinner during the holidays. We had a really great time eating, drinking and celebrating. Before we left, we decided we needed to take a picture to remember the night, so we did. Later that evening when the group picture was sent to me, I was shocked. My face was twice as big as the rest of my friends. I couldn’t help but think to myself, “How did I allow myself to get this large?!?” It was at that moment that I knew that changes had to be made.
I took some time, considered my options and enrolled in the Ideal Protein program at Woman’s Center for Wellness. With the help of my wonderful coach, I lost 40 pounds in just four months! I followed the plan exactly, never deviating one time. And let me tell you, it which wasn’t easy. During the time I was participating in Ideal Protein, my husband and I were traveling every other weekend to watch our son play college baseball. In doing so, we stayed in hotels and ate out at restaurants, spent hours at the ballpark and in the car traveling. I’ll admit, some weekends were a lot more challenging than others, but I always found a way to make the program work. My coach really helped encourage me and kept me motivated to keep pushing and keep going.
Now, it has been more than three and a half years since my graduation from the program, and I am still down 35 pounds. This is a huge accomplishment being I have spent the majority of my adult life being a yoyo dieter. Because of the program, I have adopted new habits and changed many of my past behaviors, having finally come to the realization that I had to make sustainable lifestyle changes if I wanted to keep the weight off. I’m also excited to share that my daughter recently got married, and I weighed the same at her wedding as I did 31 years ago at my own wedding. Can you believe it?!?! I know that it wouldn’t have been possible without the Ideal Protein program and the great coaching staff at Woman’s Center for Wellness. I really couldn’t have done it without them!
