My Chance - Personal Trainer Food Program

Remember a few weeks ago, when I said I was offered to try a program that would provide me with all of my food I need to eat for a month. I was scared, I was concerned that I would fail and give up. Then I found myself watching Extreme Weight Loss and thinking about how lucky these people are to be given this chance. I knew I had to look into this program more.

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.

  1. Good luck! This is a great opportunity:)

  2. I think it sounds great and am excited for you! Can't wait to hear how the meals are.

  3. You are right...I often compare my addiction to food to that of an alcoholic or smoker ~ its just the vice we go to for every thing and to fulfill every need ~ and sometimes I think its looked down upon even more b/c the excess food shows up right there in front of every one our butts, thighs, stomach etc....where as, the smoker and drinker doesn't have it so obvious. (Or at least those are my thoughts!)

    Good Luck ... Can't wait to hear all about the process!

  4. Sounds very intriguing!

  5. Can you use stevia? I love that stuff! And yay for being brave enough to do this :)

    1. Yes I can have stevia - is that good in coffee?
