Has anyone had problems with counselors doing the monthly measurements different ways? I had measurements done in December and then again today. I supposedly increased 5 inches even though I am only up 5 lbs in weight. The counselor I had said that we should get the same person to do it everytime. This is kind of hard when I have been through about 25 counselors in a year.
They do my measurements in the same places also but you will have one person that makes the measuring tape a little tight to cover the extra inches due to clothes. Then you have one that loosely wraps the tape around you so you think that you have not dropped any inches.
Very true. I had one counselor pull it tight and I had lost an amazing amount that month despite only losing 3lbs. and then the next month another person did it and I had gained inches despite losing 7lbs. However, I've learned from that and I just make sure I tell them if they are pulling too tight or not tight enough. At this point I've been doing the program longer than all of the counselors except the COD manager so I just tell them when it's not right.
One thing I've learned from the girls here is it's my money and my body. I am paying A LOT for a service and they need to deliver. That doesn't mean I'm a b****, it just means that I have learned about taking responsibility for the program and making sure I get the most out of it.
nice job Cassi! way to be! i should've been that way with a few of the cranky ladies at my old COD. they were horrible.
thanks for putting in the light: it's my body, my money and they need to give me the service i'm paying for! damn straight!
