I never really struggled with weight until the birth of my third child when the weight didn’t come off as easy as before. I was living with it until I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the chemotherapy pushed me into pseudo menopause. I gained more weight and just couldn’t lose any. Then because of the breast cancer treatment I needed a hysterectomy with ovary removal. I was now early 40’s in menopause. I was maintaining my weight but not happy with the way my children pictured me. Fat and lazy!
I decided to try the Ideal Protein Method of losing weight because I knew people that had done it with success and I didn’t have to work out! I’m not big into exercising and struggle to prioritize it into my schedule. Courtney was so positive and supportive that I was not afraid. I didn’t struggle with actual hunger, but the desire to eat for pure enjoyment. I was a diet popaholic and as soon as I got through the first few weeks of no diet pop I realized how much better I felt! I used to have headaches about 3 times a week plus my feet and hands ached all the time which I thought was neuropathy from chemotherapy. I have only had about 3 headaches in the last 6 months and they weren’t bad ones, either. My hands and feet haven’t ached or given me any issues! I vow to not have diet soda ever again! I feel so much better eating non-processed food that I am trying to slowly change the habits of my whole family.
When my youngest child saw my before and after pictures he told me he never thought I was “that fat.” But he’s never known me this thin. My kids and husband are proud of me so we are all trying to become healthier together.
Thanks so much Ideal Protein and Redline Pharmacy, especially Courtney and Jen!
