I was reading through one of the documents on the program and I said "I have to do this".
I have often compared weight loss for me to a person who struggles with quitting smoking. I don't understand why it is so hard for people to quit smoking, all the health risk. Yet, I struggle to lose weight and I feel there are just as many health risks. I have had several people tell me that quitting smoking is easier, but I am not comparing the two, I just know losing weight is a struggle for me.
This was my chance, this is being handed to me I and I was actually ashamed that I was going to turn it down. So here I am. My goal is to start Saturday the 11th and for 28 days I will be following the Personal Trainer Food Program. I am getting this program for free and plan to share my experience the good and the bad. I know there is going to be moments that are very difficult. I am excited to have a weight loss coach to ask questions to and figure out how to make the best choices.
My biggest concern is changing my coffee habit. I can use non dairy powder creamer, but need to not sure sugar. Because, I don't like my coffee without sugar or lots of creamer, I am probably going to give it up. I need to figure that out asap.
Reading through the do's and don't guideline I was excited the DO side was longer then the don't. Of course, the bad is out processed, sugars, lots of starch's an the goods are in protein and veggies. I was able to pick my menu and I pretty much picked one or more of everything so I had a good variety.
I am nervous and excited all at the same time. Wish me luck.
