[VIDEO] Amrit’s Story

Amrit – I’m Amritpal Grewal and I’m a mortgage broker for Iverico Mortgage Solutions and I process mortgages for a living. What brought me to the Healthy Transformations program was,

I was unhealthy at the time when I had joined. Unfortunately I had tried multiple different diets, a lot of different exercise programs and it was unfortunately filled with a lot of trial and error and a lot of failure unfortunately and I was just ready to try anything at that specific time, and that’s what brought me here.

 

The sum of the results that I had achieved in this program, the number one that sticks out in my mind is obviously the weight loss. The weight loss for the entire year was actually more than 60 pounds. So from my heaviest at 253 pounds, to coming down to 190 pounds and still counting. So that’s number one for me. The other things that I achieved were realizing a lot about my triggers. The triggers meaning what things are kind of going ahead and setting me off, what things I need to really watch out for that drive me off the program altogether. The foods specifically and how they made me feel, okay. So when we talk about greens, how they actually make me feel and then my thinking, how it actually goes ahead and changes. Learning a lot about my body and learning about the nutrition and what it does to my body on a day-to-day basis is what I really took away from the program altogether. The toughest part of my program was actually breaking the old habits that I actually had. So when we’re talking about socializing with friends, how to get past some of the challenges there that drive you away from the program. When we actually sit down and learn a lot about food and nutrition and some of the specifics about what goes into your body, automatically you really start to realize about how much you’re harming yourself with your old habits. When you actually put those goals on paper, when you put those achievements that you see yourself attaining through the entire year, that specifically really puts a lot of pressure, a positive impact of pressure on you to achieve what you set yourself out to do.

 

The best part of the program I think was the support that we have, so I mean continuously being on the program, you’re meeting every two weeks to talk about your struggles, to talk about your positive outcomes, to talk about what works, what doesn’t work. You’re in a team environment and you’re all here to achieve the same result, is to get healthy and so for me I think the easiest was just showing up. When you show up, half the battle is already done. So you’re learning so much about exactly what needs to be done and the other half is applying it,

so which comes naturally when you have all the support around you.

 

What I would say to somebody considering to join the program is don’t think about the cost point of view, think about what you really want to achieve out of the program. I would strongly encourage anyone to write down your goals, to really put it on paper, and to read them over and over again. If you think that it’s something that’s possible, it is definitely possible. For someone that like myself who had tried everything with trial and error. We used to go to the gym two times a day, morning for cardio and evening for weights. And we did a lot of gym training, unfortunately that didn’t even bring me close to my goals. What really did was the knowledge, the actual application of that knowledge as well, that really got me down to the weight that I wanted and is getting me to the body that I want as well.

 

I think anything else that I wanna add is do the program. It’s priceless, the knowledge that you actually are acquiring and to go ahead and be someone that your family goes ahead and looks up to. You’re doing your family a huge service in terms of being an excellent role model for them and I think it has so many different benefits, I can’t even list them right now, so join the program.

[VIDEO] Vicky’s Story

Vicky – My name is Vicky Walter and I am a grandma and enjoy my life just doing what I need to do. I had a friend do the program and I really liked what I saw of her and she explained the program a little bit to me and that’s what drew me to the program, it was something that I thought I needed to try.

 

I am 297 days in. (laughing) And as far as goal wise, I am past my goal. I have lost 63 pounds. I have recommended a girlfriend to the program and I had to talk to her four times to just tell her and this is what I told her was you need this program, because she was a lot like me, with her body pains and issues and things like that and I knew that she could do the program and I knew it would make her very happy. So when I talk to people about the program, I explain it’s an anti-inflammatory program, not a weight loss. Weight loss is the bonus part of the program. The health issues are even better. So that’s how I explain to people why they should do the program.

 

Oh, I could just tell them my story, how good I feel and how good they would feel if they tried a little harder to stick to the program and that it would be so worth it to just try it and work a little harder because it is worth it. I can only say how good I feel and I get all these comments how good I look and that makes you feel even better and feeling good in your own skin again is good.

 

I kinda thought my life was going to be the weight that I was and feel as unhealthy as I felt, pain all the time. So my knees are good, I’ve had a knee replacement 14 years ago, saw my surgeon and he was amazed that they hadn’t changed in a year ’cause last year I was looking at another

replacement and he said it hasn’t changed so keep doing what I’m doing ’cause he was amazed how good I looked and how good my knees looked too. So that’s, that’s a kicker for me.

An Open Letter to those Struggling with their Weight and Health

This is a letter from Catherine Munro a participant in the Healthy Transformations Program. She wanted to share her story with you and the rest of the world.

 

To those struggling with weight, inflammation and health issues:

I have been a participant in the Healthy Transformations Program this year – starting on January 9, 2018.

I recall being back and forth in my decision about committing to the program. Good intentions and hope were definitely there – but strong doubt and reservations crept in and drowned those thoughts out.  Old, ingrained thoughts played over in my mind – “Could I do it?” “I’ve tried lots of other programs and failed” “I’ll be so ashamed if I’m not successful”.  Essentially, I felt disappointed in myself before I even started!

The notion of succeeding felt like a huge and daunting task, and given past attempts I truly had doubts that I would have the “willpower” to stick with it.

But the Universe stepped in and gave me a big nudge.  I had a serious health scare with my heart.  My two beautiful daughters sat me down and gave me a talking-to – about how they wanted and needed me around for a long time to come…and that I needed to make some changes to ensure that happened.  Their loving but stern, concerned words impacted me deeply – so… I decided to take the leap.

I had seen a quote long ago that stuck with me “A Year from Now You’ll Wish You Had Started Today”. It’s been almost a year now since I DID start – and words cannot express what an impact this year with Healthy Transformations has had on my life.

What Was Hard

  • Stepping on the scale the first night. Feeling shame that I allowed myself to get to this point and knowing that someone else “knew” this information.  Christopher was so awesome and kind – and reassured me that they never remember or look at that number again during the year.  You only have to weigh in that one time – and after my wave of shame subsided, I could let it go…and look forward, rather than constantly beating myself up. Win #1!
  • Being so raw and concerned about my heart issue – I wanted to be sure I wouldn’t be aggravating the situation. In hindsight NOTHING could be further from the truth!! Dr. Breen was awesome and kind…and so patient…as I ran my concerns past him, and he gave me solid medical advice, reasons and reassurance not to be concerned.  I am tearing up as I write this as I am THRILLED to announce that my recurring heart issue has not only subsided, it has stopped!  And I am off the 4 medications that were prescribed to me a year ago.   My body is VERY happy about that! I am truly in awe.
  • Eating out the first few times – going for meals with friends when everyone was having drinks, and delicious creamy or fried items – and I had a salad. That was early on in the program but as the course went on I learned more and more ways of successfully managing social situations and not reverting back to old habits.  You begin to feel REALLY proud of yourself for sticking with it, rather than feeling like you are missing out on anything.

What Worked:

  • Right from the first class, you feel so supported, engaged and encouraged.
  • The second class you already start to see changes in those around you –and the momentum builds each class as we all looked around the room and celebrated in each other’s successes! That in itself was a huge boost, as you left each session armed with more wonderful information and fresh resolve to stick with it!
  • Feeling your clothes get loose – that never gets old J
  • Feeling your clothes get too big – I was in disbelief actually – could this be happening??But when your pants just about fall off in Co-op, you need to pay attention. Haha
  • Immense pride as you realize you actually DID stick with it, it was not as hard as you conjured up in your mind, the whole experience is eye-opening, incredibly educational and you truly want everyone you know and love to have this information so that they can have this experience and live their very best life!

In closing, I talked a lot about the weight loss aspect of this program, but it definitely was not just about the weight!  The way I move and my energy has improved immensely – no more sore knees.  My thoughts are so much more clear – no more brain fog!  But I think the best part of all is that I had felt anxious and worried a lot in my adult life – but with the changes in my diet and body, that has subsided 95%.  Life still throws things at you – but emotionally I feel more steady.
