Their physical transformation also impacted their relationships and future

Couple | Entrepreneur | Weight Loss

We not only transformed our bodies, but we also transformed our lives. Our future is brighter than ever before.

"For the last 15 years, I've been a model..." or at least that's what I used to tell people. I would joke, saying, "I'm a model – a before photo in those late-night weight loss commercials."

I wasn't always overweight. Before college, I was 5'9", 130 pounds, and in great shape. However, after the first year of college, I packed on the infamous "Freshman 15," marking the beginning of my lifelong "battle of the bulge." After college, I landed a "real job," which involved working 8 hours per day in an office, in front of a computer screen. A couple of years of eating out more than dining in, coupled with bar hopping with my girlfriends, saw me balloon to 155 pounds. This was the same weight I was when I met my future husband, Dennis.

The next 5 years were a whirlwind. Dennis and I started our own business, bought a house, expanded our business, moved into a new house, got engaged, then married, and expanded our business for the third time. We worked hard and played even harder. Life was good.

At this point, I was at my heaviest, weighing in at 165 pounds, and Dennis was up to 240 pounds – 30 more pounds than when we first met.

Better Health With a Hectic Life

Life didn't slow down for us. Our son was born, and then 16 months later, I gave birth to twin girls. I felt blessed that Dennis was so supportive during both pregnancies. He even put on sympathy weight so I wouldn't feel alone in the process.

Balancing three children in diapers, our business, and marriage left us with limited time to focus on ourselves. Despite this, we didn't let the chaos stop us from wanting to live healthier lives. We tried everything to get healthy and lose weight.

We joined a gym – went twice and never returned. We tried workout DVDs, which came in the mail only to be left unopened. We even hired a personal trainer to come to our home to whip us into shape. As expected, everything worked for the first couple of weeks, but then we would plateau. We tried a ton of fad diets one after another – one where we ate only meat, another where we ate only vegetables. We both became so frustrated that nothing was working, we were fed up with trying.

A Determination to be Healthy

Soon, Dennis was up to 255 pounds, and I was, let's just say, "at my heaviest." Dennis made the decision one day that he had enough. He loves our kids so much and wants to be around to see them grow up and grow old. The only way we were going to do that is if we were as healthy as possible.

Dennis got online and tried to find something new and different than what we had tried (and failed at) in the past. He came across a TEDx Talk from Transformation Specialist Angelo Poli about technology's impact on our posture. Dennis was so intrigued by Poli’s talk that he started doing more research about Poli and his expertise. He came across a diet process that Poli founded called Metabolic Profiling (MetPro).

MetPro analyzes a person’s specific response to diet and activity and makes adjustments to their individualized diet strategy based on their personal needs and goals. On the website, Dennis came to a page that showed hundreds of weight loss transformations. Not only of athletes and models but businessmen and women just like us. Each of them with the same goal – to become the best version of themselves.

Individualized Coaching, Nutrition, and Fitness Plans

We were desperate for something different. Dennis immediately scheduled a consultation through MetPro’s online system. The next day he had a great conversation with one of MetPro’s coaches, a call which lasted over 30 minutes. His coach explained how MetPro’s process worked and walked him through, step-by-step, exactly what he was going to do to help us turn our lives around.

The next week was pretty intense. We were set up with the MetPro app and took a series of tests and evaluations. This data helped our coaches understand our current metabolism, and scientifically calculated a diet strategy that would best meet both our lifestyle and goals.

In the first week, I lost 4 pounds and Dennis lost 6 pounds. We were ecstatic but hesitant as well since with most diets the first few pounds usually aren’t that hard to lose. Our coaches worked with us separately to ensure that we both received the individualized treatment we needed. Our diets were monitored daily through MetPro’s app, and adjusted based on our results.

Unlike other one-size-fits-all diets, MetPro was truly customized and adjusted to our work and travel schedules, metabolisms, and our dietary needs. Throughout the whole process, we felt that our goals were always top of mind. This process allowed us to lose the weight steadily. Even when we hit a plateau, our MetPro coaches had a creative approach to keep us moving.

Our Transformation

The best part about MetPro was that we were eating regular food that we bought from our grocery store – no shakes or pills, and we both felt amazing! Over the next few months, the weight kept coming off. We had more energy, our clothes fitted better, and our family and friends started to take notice.

Having a personal nutrition coach guide us through the process is what made the difference. We not only transformed our bodies, but we also transformed our lives. Our kids love the new versions of us. We still travel a lot and go out to dinner often, but the weight keeps coming off now that we have the knowledge to keep our metabolism in gear.

A Brighter Future

We can't thank Angelo and his team of experts enough for creating such a revolutionary approach. We owe all of our newly-found knowledge and success to the MetPro team. We consistently recommend MetPro to both our colleagues, family members, and friends who are serious about transforming their lives.

The best part isn't how good my man looks now, but how he looks at me. I'm proud to say that I'm now down to the weight I was in college and Dennis is now in the 190s after losing over 55 pounds. Our future is brighter than ever before. We're hoping that we can be role models to not only our kids but also to our friends and family.
