As a lot of you are aware, I write blog posts on weight loss tips and exercise routines, in the hopes of inspiring you to exercise and lose weight. I’ve been diligently working out since I started this blog in June, and I have not had the success I had had in the past. Only God knows why. I drink water, cut the crap out (except and occasional cheat day), exercise 5-6 days per week and try to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I just wasn’t losing any weight! It’s was frustrating, AND depressing.
Most days, I wake up fatigued, and I feel sluggish. I thought I was supposed to be coming out of this, not staying in it! It was a couple of months ago that I was given an email address, and that has changed my outlook for weight loss from pessimistic to extremely optimistic!
I was contacted by the coach who is walking me through this program, Karen Goldfarb. She is my health coach. She and I will talk on the phone (regularly as I begin my journey; and we will continue to be in contact as I continue). She will be there to answer any questions I may have. This is the big difference between Optavia and all other plans. They are diets, with little to no human interaction. They give you the stuff, and tell ya, “here ya go! Good luck!”.
This program teaches you a lifestyle change, and, let’s be honest; I wasn’t changing my lifestyle. I thought I was. With this program, you have a coach who will talk with you when it’s at your convenience. They won’t just call you out of the blue, when you’re smack-dab in the middle of something. (In addition, there are numerous other supports available to me including a Facebook group, Nutrition Support call center available to answer any nutritional or program questions, and weekly webinars.). Webinars are a very useful tool, to teach you how this works, and to keep you on track.
I am very excited and upbeat about this program! I’m super excited to see where this path leads. I hope that you all follow along on this new path along my journey, and I hope that my success will inspire you! Karen gave me the keys to the car; now, it’s up to me to drive it along my journey to health and fitness, with her as my co-pilot!
