The old saying, “you reap what you sow” hits home to this grateful client! Sowing : weekly meetings/ body measurements/journal discussion, tips and tricks from my capable, extremely motivating, accepting, and knowledgeable coaches Michele and MaryLou at the West Seneca clinic, using the app, viewing short and concise videos that inform those about the physiological and psychological facets of the protocol, providing instant recipes on the Ideal You website, providing Janeva’s cookbooks, and marketing on tv all culminate in 100% success!
For the past 7 weeks I’ve been greeted with a smile from Tina at the front desk. As she is multitasking: scheduling, reading client profiles to provide accurate supplements, cashing out members, signing clients in, and proudly sharing her story, tricks, and encouragement if asked sets the positive climate as each member enters the clinic.
As a 53 year old retired teacher, I have experimented with many “diets” and dreaded weigh in days. Now, I anticipate weigh-ins and body measurements. Did I really just say that! HUH! With 100% effort, and with the uplifting support, I reached my 10% body weight loss and was given my t-shirt! WOW! I asked those that assisted me in my ongoing journey to sign it! The next night I attended an ugly sweater party with my extended family that I have not seen since I began this journey. Immediately, when they saw me they smiled and asked what I was doing and that I looked amazing! I explained the program and had them sign my 10% shirt.
My 3 nieces that run marathons had tears in their eyes, as they know I have been struggling with health (knee) issues. My niece’s husband said I can’t wait to sign your next t-shirt! Other friends that were at the party asked more questions. You may be getting a call from a couple of them! I even shared a tiny piece of my dorados (with 10 people) that I packed as my snack for the party! In closing, I believe Ben Franklin hit the nail on the head. “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I may remember, Involve me and I learn.
I am looking forward to the next portion of my journey and will use the tools and newly formed habits, and personal writing journal, to continue to add to the foundation I’m building, learning to uphold a lifelong healthy lifestyle that the protocol teaches you.
With deep gratitude,
