Last October, I was going through some old photographs of myself when I was in High School and I ran across a photo of myself when I was a senior and playing 3rd base on the High School baseball team. Back then I weighed 180 pounds (I am 5’11” tall). I showed the baseball picture to my wife and said that I was going to lose weight and I would weigh 180 pounds again. My wife said that would not happen as I weighed 260 pounds at that time and my wife had only known me as a heavy weight person. I took that as a challenge and started looking for a weight loss program to join. I had tried Weight Watchers in the past, but with little success. I was recommended to Ideal Protein and 7Company’s office in Lansdowne, Virginia. I met with Jennifer Seven, owner of 7Company, and started the Ideal Protein diet on October 24, 2011. I had the goal of not only losing 80 pounds but to also reduce my high cholesterol numbers. I was concerned about my cholesterol as my Father had passed away from a heart attack when he was 43 years old and I was 44 years old. Heart disease runs in my family as my Grandfather died of heart disease when he was in his early 50s. In 5 months, I lost the 80 pounds that was my goal and my body fat went from 36% in October 2011 to 17% in April 2012. My waist size went from 42 – 44 to current 34 inches. My cholesterol numbers are now exactly where they should be at total cholesterol of 180, good cholesterol (HDL) at 75 and LDL at 92. My wife now calls me “bones.” The reaction from my friends and relatives has been fantastic. I was recently at a softball tournament with my wife and daughter and a friend came up to talk to my wife during a softball game. I had known the friend for over 6 years. The friend asked my wife where I was and my wife said Roger was standing next to her. My friend said she did not recognize me because I was no longer heavy. I have to say that I never felt I was on a diet with Ideal Protein and never felt that I was starving myself. I am now at the weight I was when I played 3rd base in High School. Roger T
