Default Grumpapotamus "meets" a new consultant.

So- I had an official weigh-in on Tuesday and I was SOOO grumpy. Since I began my program- I have been working with the same consultant, which I like, because she knows my story and what's going on with me- and I imagine that she likes it, because they have told me that consultants get commission on pounds lost by their last clients.

So on Tuesday-I'm waiting for my consultant and get called back by someone I don't recognize. Sad Face. She never did end up introducing herself. And I had to explain to her why the number on the scale was going to be on vacation (grandmother died, went on vacation, not in fat burning, blah blah blah). And I didn't even know her name!

It made me feel slightly...hm...off, I guess.

Does anyone else try to meet with the same consultant? Or are you just fine talking to a stranger/different person each time you weigh?

Been there, done that...not fun.

I've found that there is one consultant that I just don't connect with. I mentioned it to the Center manager and my file must have been flagged b/c I no longer see her...ever!

I prefer the Center Manager b/c she is older and I just don't relate to the pretty young skinny gals very much. I feel like I'm more authentic with the Center Manager and I get more out of the appointment. And believe it or not, she's not as likely to push products on me as the other gals. I try to make an appointment with her, plus that makes me accountable to go in.

Interesting on the commission by lbs lost...hmm.

Indeed, right? It seems like my center doesn't push as many supplements as the other centers do. I have been told my a number of consultants and even the center manager that this is how their comp plan works. ::shrugs::

I don't buy too many extra supplements, so they aren't making money off me that way.

Lunar- totally relate! Make an appointment to see the one you like and then tell her why you like her. she will appreciate it and will WANT to help you. I did exactly that. A standing appointment with the same person gave me the consistancy I needed.
