I know how you feel. Sometimes I just want to say "If you would just stop hard-selling me on everything from joining the plan to trying to push these damn supplements on me, I sure would trust you a lot more."
But I just take it with a grain of salt. It's a franchise that someone has opened in true patriotic American capitalist fashion for the express result of making moola
. But hey, I'm losing weight. I said going in, "how much would I pay to lose this durn weight that is driving me crazy?" And so I had decided before I walked in. Their nutty sales pitch did nothing but deter me, if anything -- it certainly wasn't why I joined. But, overall, it's nice to have someone looking after my weight, I like the plan, I feel like we're probably doing a lot better on plan than most of the freestylers, I'm definitely motivated to not have thrown that money away, and I feel like I'm definitely saving money by not eating out so much any more.
So, I refuse the supplements, snack, whatever the hard-sell item of the week is, over and over because I have a different counselor every time, andf just focus on the weight loss plus how great I feel to actually have found a way to eat healthy that I enjoy.
Oh, another thing. I was getting frustrated with the ups and downs caused by weighing so often. One of my counselors taught me a trick. Don't look.
So, I only look when I want, and tell them not to tell me if I don't want to know. I only look when I know I'm going to be down.
Hope that helps
Hang in there!
