“Mediterranean Meal Plan Project was easier than I thought”

When Tammy first heard of the Mediterranean diet in January this year, she brushed it off. Tammy thought that it would be too hard to follow.

But today she wishes that she would have started it then and there! Because when she finally tried it in May this year, it became an immediate success:

My name is Tammy I’m 55 years old and live in Ontario, Canada. I feel like I have been overweight my whole life. Last May I was in pretty bad shape and in a lot of pain. I weighed in at 257 lbs  and I am 5’1”.     

I had numbness in my thigh, pins and needles in my toes, significant back and knee pain and arthritis in my feet. I had difficulty with stairs and had to use the elevator at work.

Back In January my daughter tried to convince me to try Mediterranean diet because she heard it was the #1 diet in the world.  Come forward to May and I started to make a couple small changes no more chips and dip (which I ate every night about 10:00 pm). Mid May my neurologist suggested if I lost some weight it would help with the numbness and pain I was experiencing. I got the Mediterranean Meal Plan Project to get started.

The first week I lost 9 lbs and found it was easier than I thought. I am happy to report that I am down 45.5 lbs altogether. I still have a way to go to get to my goal but I am motivated to stay on track. I have gone from a size 24 to a size 16! I am walking almost every day and I’m joining a gym this week and I am no longer using the elevator at work.

I really wish I had started the Mediterranean Meal Plan Project in January instead of August but I’m doing it now and that’s what is important. I have a modest monthly weight loss goal.I also got a Fitbit and do challenges with a few girls from work and I have a great support system with my family and friends.

The first photo is me in May at 257 lbs and the second is me in November at 212 lbs.


I hope you enjoyed reading Tammy's success...

I know it starting out seems challenging..

But if you just keep at it..

...results can come and make a difference
