I have been sick for two weeks now. and now i have a terrible cough, to the point where i have chest and stomach pains and headaches from coughing so darn much. i have been sucking on sugar free cough drops constantly...which i think causes gas and belly aches...
nevertheless, i went WI today and down .6 lbs from monday. so i asked them what i should do when i am sick. i always get the COD that is just so unknowledgable. she basically said, just drink more water and stick with the plan. i have told her three times that i can not get all my food in especially protein and i am wanting more starch...also i am totally way over the 3 pieces of sugar free candy (cough drops), and lemon and honey tea thing. so all i wanted to know what soup i can have. NO SOUP NO SOUP was all i got from her. I told her fine, then come up with a menu that i can stick with for the next few days where i may feel comfortable with and stay on plan. so the COD went and got the cookbook. and said you can buy the cook book and make you own recipes. I was told in the beginning when i was signing the $700 check that "oh, yes, we help you with planning menus if you need it, and we will call! you'll get all the support you'll need!" I was really pissed that she was trying to shuffle me out and tells me that she is not a dietian and cant tell me what i can eat and not. she can recommend that i stay on plan but what i do when i get home is up to me. Why can't they just fulfill their promise of helping me come up with a menu plan. whatever heppened to "we are here to give you all the support you need?" I think they are not as nice to me because i cant do the lites...so i dont buy there stuff.
So, i got really pissed off and called the district manager. (i met her on my second visit and she gave me her number). i told her how unprofessional they were...answering calls while i am in with them, talking to each other like i am not there, yelling questions over the walls, not closing the door, talking about other clients (with names)....how unprofessional! i even hear other members meeting with their COD...why cant they just close the freaking doors? just because they wear the darn white coat, their behaviors are not professional at all. i think LAWL is a great concept and i love the accountability, but most of the COD are so bad. my regular COD got promoted to manager at another site, so i am stuck with what's left!
sorry, i am sick and grumpy and just needed to vent. so, what do you do when you are sick?
