There are a few times in life where a golden opportunity literally falls into your lap. Or, err, your email inbox as was the case with me and the Genetix Program. I have written in the past about my lack of exercise and how much I’ve gained weight (like this post in response to Maria Kang’s fitspirational photo), but as 2013 came to an end I was really feeling the push to do something about it. When I learned about the Genetix Program, I knew that would be the answer for me.
Starting Weight: 188.7
Month One Weight: 182.0
Total Weight Loss: 6.7
I am such a cheater…
Ok, so I’m just going to be honest. I’ve been good the past couple of weeks but I’m a cheater. I’ve always had a strong, loving relationship with chocolate and… well, breaking up is hard to do! I at least switched over to these great Genetix protein bars and that has been very helpful. My biggest hurdle is controlling my mind. It’s so weird. I would think that my taste buds would be the problem. Craving that chocolately goodness. But it’s my mind. Thoughts of chocolate cupcakes dancing in my head. Dreams of Kit Kat bars doing the samba in my mouth. Yes, I already know. I have issues. That’s why we’re here, this is where I work through my ‘stuff.’ *smile*
So this is what it’s really like…
What I’ve been most surprised by throughout the start of my weight loss journey is how good healthy eating really is. It’s not the boring, bland, lifeless food experience I’ve always imagined it would be. And with the guidance of my Genetix Program counselor, I have been able to find creative ways to make meal-time more exciting. Eating healthy can be fun. Weight loss can actually be enjoyable. Who knew?
The Genetix Program is my new lifeline…
The Genetix Program is a doctor-led weight loss program where you are assigned a counselor and a personalized meal plan. Based on you. What works for you. How you like to eat. What fits into your lifestyle. The accountability of working with a counselor is extremely motivating – it’s straight up embarrassing to tell my counselor when I’ve slipped up or to show her that my weight has gone back up instead of down (yea, that happened a couple of times). Although she would never make me feel bad – as a matter of fact, her encouragement is refreshing: “Don’t worry about the past! Just start over and get back on the program.” I so appreciate that.
Take this journey with me!
I have about 35-40 more pounds to lose to get to my goal weight. Please check back often and make sure you don’t miss an update. I am really looking forward to sharing my progress and also my before/after pictures once I reach my target. Also, check out the Genetix Program for assistance with reaching your weight loss goals; you will be so happy you did!
