One of my dieters, I can’t tell you who it is because I have not asked permission to tell this story. I will call her “Donna”. Has been on the Ideal Protein Diet and is doing very well. When she first came in she was skeptical about the whole program but she liked me so she said she would try it. Her enthusiasm was underwhelming and I would have bet money she was not going to make it.
Well, she has been very successful and lost 32lbs.
One day we were chatting and she told me this story, which I love. Donna didn’t tell any of the ladies at her church she was loosing weight on purpose. When she thought she was looking nice and trim she went to Macy’s and got a new dress that comes just above her knees, which to Donna is slightly scandalous, and some high heel shoes that she admitted she never wears. Then she winked at me and said, “I was ready for church that day and full of prayers of thanks that I had the desire to stay on the plan.” With a wink she left me with a huge smile on my face.
