Determination and a Successful Weight Loss Journey
This Ideal Protein patient successfully took control of his health with a terrific outcome through determination and a support team including his Ideal Protein coach and family.
"In April 2016, just prior to a deployment, I had what turned out to be an anxiety attack but sure felt like a cardiac event. My GP told me I should consider that a warning shot and a wake-up call. I didn't listen. Then at my annual visit with VA heart on June 3, 2016, the cardiologist said "dude your numbers are going the wrong way. We can have a vertical conversation or a horizontal." He reminded me that we spoke about Ideal Protein at the previous years' check up and I was now 35 pounds heavier than last year. I was in the highest stress job of my career and was in the worst shape of my life. It was at the low point that I sat down with my Ideal Protein coach Erica. That was July 1st, 2016. Nine months later I've lost 65 pounds, 11.5 inches from my waste, and almost 20% body fat. Onto to Phase 2.
Why did I answer the wakeup call ? At 52 years old with a fantastic wife of 31 years and two amazingly successful daughters (24 & 27), I want to enjoy whatever the next chapters of life have in store for me, us, them, etc. I watched my mother and father not do the things that were within their control and witnessed the debilitating effects. There is so much in life we don't control. Ideal Protein helped me gain control of a lifelong nemesis. The simplicity is the key to success.
Thanks for the support and encouragement."
