Lose the Fat, Preserve the Muscle, with Our Healthy, Proven Plan

My weight loss wakeup call arrived in May 2016.  I had stepped on the scale and was back up over 200 pounds.  I had finally hit that point in my life that I needed to take control and stop yo-yo dieting as many call it.  I had finally reached a mind over matter state of being where I needed to do something about my weight and only I could make that decision.  All the excuses and telling myself I will do it someday needed to stop.  “Just do it” needed to be my focus. Not sure why so many negative thoughts consumed me all the time, I think it’s just how uncomfortable I was on the inside and how I hid from the truth the scale showed.  The secret to my success was making the call to Ideal Weight Loss and finding the guidance and support from Heidi.  For so long I had been doing everything my way and this needed to change.  I suffered from a bacterial stomach infection for over 5 years and ignored the signs that my body was giving me after I made bad food choices.  I would end up with rashes, upset stomach, and even bloating.  But my addiction to food always took main stage.  Once I started losing weight with Ideal Weight Loss, I knew that I had finally found something that made me feel more alive, determined and proud.  Following the lifestyle changes Heidi and Ideal Weight Loss provided was actually simple compared to any choices I had make before.  It took me several weeks to realize that my mind and body didn’t need all those “poor choices” to survive and I stopped craving them.  With Ideal Weight Loss I have become center stage and food is no longer running and ruining my life.   I have taken control over something that had dominated me for over 20 years.  I am extremely grateful for my relationship with Heidi and the Ideal Weight Loss program.  I can finally stand in front of the mirror with confidence, strength and appreciation for myself that was missing for so many years.

I came to Ideal Weight Loss after having had a stroke. I achieved my objective to lose 30 lbs. even while on a restricted diet due to allergies to gluten and dairy. The program was very easy to follow. I especially liked the dietary and nutritional tips from Heidi Maher. The whole team was always professional and courteous.

 Thanks so much Ideal Weight Loss Center for your support during my recovery process!

What an awesome experience Ideal Weight Loss Center has been for me! I was someone who never struggled with my weight until recently. I chalked it up to getting older, hormones or whatever other excuses I could find. Then I met my Nutritionist/Coach Heidi.  Immediately, she knew my body better than I did! She recommended I get blood tests to check my thyroid levels because I wasn't losing the weight I should have been within the first couple of weeks.
​ Low and behold, she was right! My thyroid was so out of whack and after I got it straightened out, the weight came off. I was thrilled! I only needed to lose twenty pounds, and it took quite some time, but the program was simple and straightforward.  Heidi was genuinely concerned, a great listener, and very knowledgeable.  I couldn't have lost this weight without her and Ideal Weight Loss Center.  I'm back to my old self, but with greater confidence, self-esteem and a better healthy lifestyle. 

​Thank you everyone!

I just wanted to take a moment and THANK YOU!! I have been working with you and the Ideal Weight Loss system/team for about 2 months now and I am proud to say that I have lost 40 pounds! Not only have I lost 40 pounds, but I did it during the most difficult time of the year - The Holidays. Usually, this is a time when I gain 10 pounds, become unhappy with myself, and try to motivate myself to get ready for the nicer times ahead - but not this year, and never again.

As you know I commute 3 hours a day for work and generally work about 10 hours a day. This creates a lot of stress and very little time for health. When I talked to you I wanted a lifestyle change. I did not want food or my weight to control me anymore - I wanted to take back control. I also was sick of yo-yo diets and wanted a plan that I could continue for the rest of my life. Through your guidance I have achieved all of that. Although it was challenging at times I began to feel empowered. I understood that I rely on food and drink for comfort, and that is was a vicious cycle because then I would be unhappy. The plan was simple and I began to see results right away, which kept me going and feeling motivated. This was all without having to hit the gym at all! This plan has made me more successful in my personal life and work life as well.


Thank you so much for all help you have truly given me my life back!

We know our program works!  No one can explain it better than our clients!  

Hear what they have to say about Ideal Weight Loss Plan:

I have been on many diets, but The Ideal Weight Loss Plan has worked the best for me.  Plus, it was the easiest one to follow that I have found.  I began in the summer on the first day of August.  Within 3 months I was at my goal.   Having to be accountable every week was the incentive, and having a counselor to talk to about my week.  Having to write down everything I ate was a challenge at first, but was "eye opening".  

One of the first things I noticed was my energy level returning.  Never had I learned the way to count carbohydrates, what was the difference - complex-simple?  Now, it is a routine that I follow every day.  I also watched my sugar intake, and watched the inches disappear.  I can eat anything within reason (have a cheat day), go to parties, etc.  I can because I have the knowledge that comes with my program.  Stop by and talk to them.

Thanks Heidi for your support and to my friend at church who introduced me to a healthier way of life (a smaller me).  Go for it!

Dear Heidi & Colleen,

As a “thank you” this letter seems wholly insufficient.  It is no exaggeration to say that you, and Ideal Weight Loss, gave me my life back.  I am forever grateful.

When I came to you in January of this year, I was desperate and doubtful.  My weight gain had gotten to the point that I could no longer do the things that I enjoyed because I had become physically unable.  My self-esteem had diminished to the point where I could no longer see myself as who I once was.  Yet, I had little confidence that this could change.

Every attempt that I had made, on my own, to lose weight had failed.  I was almost certain that this program would too.  But you proved me wrong.

Everything that you said would happen on the Ideal Weight Loss program happened.  The plan was not at all hard to follow and I was immediately encouraged by the simple mistakes in my thinking that you corrected at the very start.  The dreaded hunger never appeared, as you said it wouldn’t.  And the weight started to fall off, as you said it would.  The visible success, coupled with the encouragement and advice that I received at my weekly meetings, help me to not only continue, but to be excited at my progress.

By July of this year, I had met my goal.  I had lost 95 pounds! I truly felt like a different person.  In fact, I must have become one, because so many people who had not seen me throughout the transition no longer recognized me.  I was, and remain excited to tell my story to those who are shocked at the result.

Now, my life has improved in more ways than even I had hoped for; I am able to do the things that I missed, but importantly, things that I thought that I could still do, I find that I am able to do so much better.  I have more confidence and am, once again, happy with who I am.  Thank you for helping me find my smile.

I lost 128 lbs. in 28 weeks and I feel great. I have been able to maintain my new weight for over a year. I will never go back to that size again, thanks to Ideal Weight Loss!

I had about 15-20 pounds that I needed to lose but just couldn't do it - no matter how much I exercised or changed my eating patterns.

This program was straight-forward and I met my GOAL!!!! I have gotten so many nice compliments, but beyond that I feel good, healthy, and strong. There is no deprivation and the results are amazing. It's a wonderful lifestyle change that is very do-able. I highly recommend the Ideal Weight Loss Center and the wonderful staff - you will NOT be disappointed!!!
