So, tomorrow I get measured. The program I'm on sets people up for success, as long as they take full advantage of everything laid out in front of them.
They sell you the powder, and the ready mix drinks - which are not candy and pop tarts, but they are solid drinks, and when mixed correctly, they taste okay. The second thing they do is set you up with an exercise regime specifically tailored to you. This is followed every four weeks by a measurement session. Then you see a doctor (real, bonified doctor) every week after you weigh in. Then, after that you go to a group meeting with about 10 to 15 other people just like you, who are experiencing (or have experienced) the exact same things you are.
So, not only are you seeing progress (cause this program WORKS), but you also see others progressing. You see people who started with you who look so much better than they did before. You see their weight loss, and understand that others can probably see your weight loss. It is fantastic.
And you measure your progress in several different concrete ways. 1. Your blood pressure, 2. Your inches, 3. (of course) your weight loss. And in group, you measure your success with stories regarding your week, and others weeks.
Tomorrow, I get measured by inches. I can't wait to see what I've lost. I know I've dropped at least 2 sizes, so I am looking forward to large decreasing numbers. This program has been amazing for me. I know that getting off of it will be the hard part, so I'm hoping to step into that piece very gradually. One day at a time... (only I'll probably be blogging a lot more cause I don't imagine it's going to be easy... ;) )
