Drew's Story

For as long as I can remember, I was always on a diet or trying new things to lose weight. I started becoming self conscious about my weight when I was in middle school and weighed around 160 pounds. I have always been the “thicker” friend and always knew I looked different than the rest of my peers. I began to believe that I was just “big boned” and meant to look that way for the rest of my life.

I would try new diets frequently and only lose about 10 lbs in a two month timespan. That was very frustrating and discouraging to me. All throughout high school I maintained 190 lbs but once college started is where I saw my weight spike. I experienced a lot of obstacles in my 4 years of college that I believe lead me to become an emotional eater. I would eat all the time, whether that meant if I was happy, sad, mad, you name it.

June 2016 I got engaged to my high school sweetheart, and that was my wake up call. I remember a week after the engagement looking in the mirror at myself and sobbing because I was so depressed and so tired of not loving the way I looked. I did not enjoy life at that point, and I didn’t feel good. I was tired all the time, and that is when I knew something had to change.

Ever since I was little, I had this vision of my wedding day and how I would look and I knew I wanted to be healthy, look good, and feel good. I began to seek professional help and that is when I started my journey with Metabolic Research Center. I weighed my heaviest at that time, 250 pounds. I remember my very first weigh in, losing 7.5 lbs in only 4 days and feeling so accomplished and extra motivated to get the weight off. I successfully lost 98 lbs. I feel amazing physically AND emotionally.

The important thing was I never gave up and I constantly reminded myself of how far I had already come. In the year since reaching my lowest weight, I’ve seen some amazing things happen in my life. I married an amazing man and I started training for my very first 5K to celebrate  losing 100 lbs. My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible. Going from someone who over ate all my meals and tired all the time to someone who has lost about 100 lbs and is working toward living the rest of her life as a healthy and fit individual is something I am very proud of.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
