Q: How did you find IdealShape?
A: I found IdealShape through browsing the internet for meal replacement shakes. I did not want to use an MLM company and just have people telling me whatever I wanted to hear to buy their products. So, while searching I found IdealShape and it had pretty great reviews. So I thought I would give it a try.
Q: What motivated you to lose the weight?
A: I have been tiny my entire life. When I hit 30 the weight just started sticking. I ended up getting pregnant and gaining 70 pounds. It was hard to lose it after having my daughter. I became so hard on myself. I was insecure, body shamed myself, and became extremely depressed.
I wouldn’t go out my house. I would just isolate myself inside and emotionally eat. And if I did leave, I would try on all the clothes that I had, and just have extreme anxiety about how I looked. Every time I walked out of the house somebody would end up rubbing my stomach and asking me if I was pregnant again. So, needless to say, I always saw myself as fat and gross, and would think about what everyone was saying.
The pain got great and I realized that I needed to do something for me. It wasn’t about anyone else. But because of my low self-worth, my health, and depression I hardly ever left my home, which inevitably meant that neither did my kids. It was definitely time for a change. Also, when I have depression and anxiety, it doesn’t just affect me, it affects all those around me.
Q: What are some of your favorite activities that keep you active?
A: I’m pretty busy. Not only am I a mother of two, but I also nanny. So, I’m always pretty active. I think some of my favorite things that I like to do are taking my kids places and doing things with them.
Q: What are your favorite Ideal products?
A: IdealShakes: Cookies n’ Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Vanilla.
Besides the amazing tasting shakes, I love the S’Mores IdealBars, and the Ideal Chips. I also use the probiotic supplement and IdealBurn.
I’ve replaced my coffee with IdealBoost, which surprisingly works great.
