As a coach I am used to hearing self-critical language. Wait a second, let me restate that, as a human being, I am used to hearing self-critical language. Most of us are our own harshest critics. We critically judge ourselves for everything – from what we chose to eat for lunch to how we managed our emotions when dealing with a tough parenting challenge.
I first learned about the program through a Facebook post. I wanted more information so I checked out the website and did some research. I really liked the coaching element and the fact that members can talk to people who understand the science of losing weight.
When I first heard about the program I had just transitioned into new job - my last job was extremely stressful and I had put on a lot of weight. I was at a point where my kids were pretty self-sufficient and I was mentally ready to commit myself to making a change in my own life.
