My name is Colleen.

In 10 months, I lost 134 pounds and 82 inches.

My husband’s Orthopaedic Surgeon recommended we try a diet at The Ideal You Weight Loss Center, if we were serious about losing weight. He said it was a great program and that it would be the last diet we would ever need (like we hadn’t heard that before)!

In February 2014, we attended an Open House at The Ideal You Weight Loss Center in Clarence to hear what the program was all about. That open house changed my life.

At that time, my joints hurt, my clothes didn’t fit and all I wanted to wear were sweat pants. I was short of breath doing minimal exercise, like my job, as a nurse! I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure – I had HAD ENOUGH! I listened, I signed up.

On March 6, 2014, I started my weight loss journey weighing 294 pounds. Now, 10 months later, I weigh 160 pounds, I wear a size 10 and only wear sweats at the gym. I feel great! I no longer have joint pain, I have energy I haven’t had in 30 years and I am off my Cholesterol and Blood Pressure meds!

The diet was easy to follow. There was a great variety of foods and recipes. What helped to stay with the program and stay motivated was the weight loss I saw each week along with the inches coming off. I’m talking 2-5 pounds per week, not just a half a pound here and there!

Did my husband every lose weight? Initially, he didn’t think the diet was for him, but as he saw how great I was doing and how fantastic I felt, he started at The Ideal You just before Memorial Day 2014 and by Labor Day 2014 he reached his “ideal weight!

We both feel fantastic. We are back to riding bikes, kayaking, and this winter we are going skiing again.

This was our last diet. The results you’ll see will keep you going and the way you’ll feel will keep you there. Thank you to The Ideal You Weight Loss Center!
