I was a mess! My weight was at an all-time high. I had just completed a year on another diet, one that I had done over and over again for decades. I was following the program, but kept losing and gaining back the same 10 pounds. I had resigned myself to being overweight. What was hard to resign myself to was the indigestion, heartburn, migraines, being tired, poor sleep, inflammation and swelling, aches and pains. Walking up a flight of stairs took my breath away. I felt older than I should at 58. To say I was a mess was an understatement.

I started visiting Cindi at Ideally You in Duluth, Minnesota and following the Ideal Protein Protocol. Day one I had my first vanilla crispy bar at breakfast and thought, “If I get to eat food that tastes this good, this won’t be so bad!” Night one: No indigestion or heartburn. I kept waiting for it, but it never came. It became the first night I did not have to ingest heartburn medication. The night before this evening was my last. I have not needed it since! No more heartburn and indigestion wasn’t the only thing I saw change. I had energy! I was sleeping and waking up well rested. The swelling and inflammation went away in my feet, hands and legs. I was losing weight!

After a little over a year I am now down over 90 pounds and 46.50 inches! Yes, that is a pair of my old pants! They used to fit, tightly! As I enter phase 4, I am excited about all of the positive changes and weight loss. Most of all, I have my life back! THANK YOU to a friend for convincing me to attend an information meeting, to Cindi who is the best coach ever, and to Ideal Protein for an awesome program! It works! I may be approaching 60, but I feel younger and healthier than I have for many decades!
