I'm a dog-lover working as a chartered accountant in Calgary, AB.

In 2013 I lost 40 pounds with Ideal Protein and then my life went off the rails and I gained it all back. In 2017 my life is going well - I live with my amazing boyfriend and have a good job so it's time to put my health as a priority. I'm back on Ideal Protein and I've lost 50 pounds so far! My highest weight was approx 360, so I'm down about 90 pounds from my heaviest (in 2010).

    Hey!! I see that you added me as a friend 6 days ago... I'm so sorry I didn't know until now. I usually get an e-mail as soon as someone adds me as a friend - I have no idea why I didn't get one. I didn't even know whether you had joined SparkPeople. Anyway, I've found you now!

    I hope you get as much out of this site as I do. Anytime you want any help/suggestions, let me know!
