What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?

My health was not good, but I was too busy to stop and work on my health. Due to the pandemic, I was forced to slow down and used that time to work on my health. I took advantage of virtual office visits and saw all the doctors and health professionals suggested. What motivated me to keep going was the improvement I saw in my health.

How did you change your eating habits?

I did a program through my doctors called Ideal Protein. It is a very strict diet where they tell you precisely what you can and can not eat. They provide meals, weekly video coaching, and you have weekly check-ins. There were lots of restrictions-No dairy, no sugars, and no alcohol. You only eat the food they supply and the foods listed on a one-sheet guide that lists the foods you can eat for dinner.

Unfortunately, I did not work out at all. I was advised to at least walk 22 minutes a day, but I did not.
