Have you ever felt like you have lost control of something?
That is how I felt about my weight. I had visions of ending up on TLC’s “My 600 lb Life” because I kept gaining and didn’t know how to make it stop. When I started Ideal Protein I had 2 goals. The first one was to be able to get up off the floor with ease and the second, more important one, was to be able to wear my wedding rings again. Weeks before I had finally accepted that I could no longer force them onto my finger. I had been married 18 years and had never gone a day without wearing my rings. I felt defeated.
I had so many doubts when I started the program. I had good weeks and I had bad weeks. But...with each week my knowledge and confidence grew as my weight started to drop. I started to notice changes in my clothing and in my energy levels. When my wedding rings finally fit I was ecstatic! I felt like I had found control again.
My husband and I started Ideal Protein together. Our exciting moment caused us to jump around the room like little children!
We are the kind of couple that really enjoys one another, and before this experience I can't really remember the last time we hugged where I could touch my own hands behind his back. That is, not until a few weeks ago!
We were in our living room when I hugged him, and we both recognized the milestone immediately! OUR HANDS WERE TOUCHING! We jumped up and down and laughed.
One of the great things about this is we could bring the news back to our coach who was just as excited as we were! What an awesome milestone!
From the moment I decided to lose weight and have a health lifestyle this program gave me the confidence to achieve that goal.
I had tried various diets over the years with some weight loss, but not with to much success. Ideal Protein Program showed me how it wasn't so much a diet I needed but education on how my body processed food.
Every week of the program I learned something new about my journey to lose weight and change my life style. I gained confidence, energy and strength to achieve my goal in a better lifestyle! Being able to go for walks with my family and not stopping to catch my breath at various points and them waiting for me was a big confidence push for me on this program!
The support and coach I got that I received, and still do has been a big part of my success!
One of the most positive parts of this program, is knowing that I have the confidence and the tools to believe in myself and stay healthy!
Originally when I started Ideal Protein I was taking my doctors advice to lose weight before surgery. I had so many health issues that I couldn't even eat vegetables.
I was reluctant to start any program because of how hard it was to eat most foods, but I decided to push through my fears and just start. I had no idea that my health would change so drastically with such a short period of time.
Suddenly I was eating a ton of different kinds of vegetables with no issues! I dropped weight pretty quickly (I'm told that happens more for men) and continue to approach my goal. I've already lost 90 lbs, and can't remember the last time I felt this healthy! I've been pretty blown away by the health results I've had through this experience.
As I was approaching my 60th birthday it made me consider what I want my third act of life to look and feel like. I thought about the weight I have carried on and off for most of my adult life and thought, enough!
I chose to really take care of myself and see what a total investment in myself would manifest in my life.
Releasing 50 pounds of weight has completely changed my life! I am so much more comfortable in my skin and enjoy all the external benefits such as new clothes, new styles, not to mention saucy looks from my hubby. So much fun!!!!
However, the internal reward of having released the weight is truly the gift I have given myself. In some ways my life is really just revving up with the energy I now possess! Look out world, I'm ready to step into more adventures with this new body and outlook!
When I first started Ideal Protein, I had no idea the amount I would learn about my body and mind. I thought I was just going to lose weight.
When I started to read labels, look at nutrient content and monitor my eating patterns, I became so much more connected to what I ate.
I gained clarity. Something about the way I was eating, rid my body of not only excess fats that were bogging it down, but also allowed me a connection and healthy relationship to food! Am I perfect? No. Not my intention. But I am always learning, observing and making changes.
My biggest thing, was the kindness I began to grow for my body... which allowed me to share this appreciation with others, and more importantly with my son. The fact that eating has typically been an unconscious practice for me, to now where it is a growing consciousness, of not only what I eat, but how I eat.
I now know and feel my inner strength grow more, giving me the confidence that this strength and energy will grow as I do in age, along side my son. I know I will now be able to run, play, and keep with his energy, better than I ever have done.
I struggled to find the right diet for over a year. Each week I was so hungry and disappointed in myself. Even though I always thought of myself to be someone who knew what I should be eating, I couldn't find a solution. Will power was not a problem, but I didn't see success in my weight goal journey until I started Ideal Protein.
The first few weeks were not easy, but once I saw it was working I haven't looked back!
We need the support of our coach to see us through, because with them we hold ourselves more accountable.
I am 50 lbs down, and more than half way to my goal! I feel more like me again!
The program gave me so much knowledge and empowered me to have control over my inflammation issues and weight loss. I had been struggling for years and I finally conquered my desire to stay in control. 😊
After being on the Ideal Protein program, my health overall improved. Previously I was lethargic and didn't have the energy to do some of the things I love, like biking and going to the gym.
Now I have the energy to do that and then some. Also my gastrointestinal issues are resolved (which I'm sure is tied to energy) and my skin is the best it's ever been. Thank you Coach Morgan.
My name is Amy and I'm 36 years old. Last February, I was getting ready to return to my full-time job (remotely), while still helping my four year old with online learning and watching my 18 month old. I had help (thank goodness for grandparents!), but I was still feeling anxious about managing it all - where was I going to get all this energy? I quickly realized I needed to get my health in check, and more importantly, I needed to completely change my eating patterns to help me fuel my body, instead of running it on empty - as is the case for most sleep-deprived parents!
I was in the constant cycle of making poor eating choices because I was too tired to make healthy meals, which made me feel like crap, which made me tired... and thus it went on and on.
For me, this program wasn't about weight loss, it was about feeling good about the food choices I was making and about setting a good example for my children. I wanted to be more present, calm and fun - not rundown, exhausted and short-fused. Our kids model our behaviors, so I wanted to set the example for them, and equip them with the right kind of food choices.
Food plays such a big part in how we feel, and by finally understanding the types of foods to eat and the portion sizes that are right for me, I was able to completely change my eating habits for the better!
This isn't a diet for me, it's a new way of eating that makes me feel good inside and out - and that's what I want to teach my kids.
I would be lying if I didn't say I was scared to jump in, but Morgan gave me the courage and reassurance I needed to keep pushing through. Thank you!
What I’ve come to realize is this journey is not a life sentence to/for myself or a ‘go without’ situation; instead, it is truly a lifestyle. Acceptance and embracing my body and feeding it the right way. This journey has taught me to realize the way I was treating my physical body, not nourishing it by allowing whatever it felt like to invade it, whether that be emotional eating, satisfying a craving that never really was satisfied with whatever I gave it, or telling myself I’ll allow one cheat today, which turned into the same repetitive behaviours.
The weight loss saga, as I used to refer to it, could in fact be a novel I’d write. In the beginning of this IP journey, the menacing word ‘weight loss’ was just that for me…achieving the magic number that would make me ‘happy’ and ‘fix’ my life. Cutting out all the bad stuff I was eating was surely the problem, I thought. I needed discipline to ‘fix’ this by cutting out literally everything and what I referred to as the suffering stage. Ensuring I made my nutrition coach proud by hitting the mark every week. The only thing I considered about myself is that I was not able to have this, that or the other thing, until I hit that magic number I was looking for on a scale in order to be ‘happy’, socially accepted and then I could just have all that cut-out stuff again, right? Nope, not so.
How interesting that outer world bombardment of what the ideal woman should be, should look like, should do in order to achieve some kind of social acceptance and validation is what made me tick.
Well, then I hit that magic number, I did it, literally and figuratively. And, guess what? There was still no fix.
Outside of the moment I saw the magic number, there was no ‘happily and perfectly ever after’. During the magic number moment, I enjoyed buying and fitting into the clothes I wanted and having momentary glimpses of a satisfied ego when I received compliment after compliment…but internally there was still something ticking that didn’t sit right within. The truth is I yo-yo ’ed for what seemed like forever and then got back into the habit of going without to get back to that magic number on the scale and the feeling that I was one of the perfect world accepted people because of that number.
What I called discipline. Hmmmm?
In the end, it’s about me, my soul and not fixing my physical body by having a magic number on a scale but by caring for it in a way that pays homage to the entirety of me, physical, mental and spiritual. For me, this was/is about self discovery. Yes, in the beginning, it was through weight loss that I thought the magic number would make me a better, more perfectly accepted human. Now, I know it’s about creating a balance within myself so that I can be the best version of all those things and learning that food is a source of living, not going without.
