Eighteen months ago I was 40 years old, going on 60. I was overweight, out of shape and lacked career motivation. Initially I attributed this to the normal aging process and was somehow content to let myself go. It wasn’t until I saw the disappointment on my son’s face one day when I was too lazy to go outside and play that I knew something needed to change.
I was introduced to Elan Medical through a few people that had a good experience and decided to give it a try. To say there has been an improvement would be a massive understatement. The difference I experienced in appearance, attitude and well being are very difficult to put into words.
From a purely physical standpoint, I went from 36% to 22% body fat, losing 27 pounds of pure fat and gaining 15 pounds of muscle. I have more energy than I have had in years and feel like 20 years of aging has been reversed.
I know most people will start a program like this to notice a difference from the outside in, but I really feel like the best part is from the inside out. I had always considered myself a confident person, but I really didn’t know the definition of that until I started working with Elan. This newfound confidence has had an amazing impact on my career. When I started, I was a mid level worker bee in the banking industry not going anywhere fast. In the 18 months since, I found a better job with a better bank, have been promoted multiple times, manage multiple locations, made Vice President and won the Rising Star Award for the entire Company.
Whether people want to admit it or not, physical appearance and attitude have a huge impact on how people view us, both professionally and personally. I attribute a lot of my recent professional success to my transformation. From a personal standpoint, I also notice a difference in the way people treat me and even look at me. Especially my wife — she wouldn’t admit it, but I know she is much happier being with someone who is healthy and in shape than the person I was. And believe me, ALL aspects of our relationship are much better, if you know what I mean…
Knowing what I know now, any hesitation to start this process seems silly. Elan Medical has improved my physical appearance and health, my career and even my relationships with my family. I couldn’t be happier.
