Several years ago I injured myself and let myself get out of shape. Finally trying to get back on track a couple of years ago, I lost weight, but also gained some back. It was a constant guessing game on what I needed to do to get where I needed to be.
I’ve always been an active person, although I really lost touch with myself and my body. This is where Functional Medical Institute and Drs. Mark & Michele came into my life. I heard about DNA testing at FMI on the news and decided that this was worth checking into and where I probably needed to start.
I’ve been eating clean for five months now and my body fat levels are down from 25% to 13%. I have lost 37 pounds of fat and gained 8 pounds of muscle. I was also trying to get off some of my medications to maintain a healthier lifestyle being ‘med free’. Currently I am on only two of them.
I feel so much better about myself. Physically I have less pain and mentally I know I can do this. The power of my mind helped to control and influence my body. It’s a case of mind over matter on a daily basis.
I feel that I’m in the best possible shape that I’ve ever been in. I’m still lifting heavy weights which I enjoy doing, but my joints don’t hurt like they once did. I know that looking good is really just a by product of being healthy. The proper diet, exercise and the drive to stay focused has helped me to succeed.
I would like to thank Drs. Mark & Michele for their help and guidance on my wellness journey.
