My Wonderful Opportunity with Optavia.

As a lot of you are aware, I write blog posts on weight loss tips and exercise routines, in the hopes of inspiring you to exercise and lose weight. I’ve been diligently working out since I started this blog in June, and I have not had the success I had had in the past. Only God knows why. I drink water, cut the crap out (except and occasional cheat day), exercise 5-6 days per week and try to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I just wasn’t losing any weight! It’s was frustrating, AND depressing.
Most days, I wake up fatigued, and I feel sluggish. I thought I was supposed to be coming out of this, not staying in it!  It was a couple of months ago that I was given an email address, and that has changed my outlook for weight loss from pessimistic to extremely optimistic!
I was contacted by the coach who is walking me through this program, Karen Goldfarb. She is my health coach.  She and I will talk on the phone (regularly as I begin my journey; and we will continue to be in contact as I continue).   She will be there to answer any questions I may have. This is the big difference between Optavia and all other plans. They are diets, with little to no human interaction. They give you the stuff, and tell ya, “here ya go! Good luck!”.
This program teaches you a lifestyle change, and, let’s be honest; I wasn’t changing my lifestyle. I thought I was. With this program, you have a coach who will talk with you when it’s at your convenience. They won’t just call you out of the blue, when you’re smack-dab in the middle of something. (In addition, there are numerous other supports available to me including a Facebook group, Nutrition Support call center available to answer any nutritional or program questions, and weekly webinars.).  Webinars are a very useful tool, to teach you how this works, and to keep you on track.
I am very excited and upbeat about this program! I’m super excited to see where this path leads. I hope that you all follow along on this new path along my journey, and I hope that my success will inspire you! Karen gave me the keys to the car; now, it’s up to me to drive it along my journey to health and fitness, with her as my co-pilot!

    This is something I haven’t heard of and it is great with the help they actually can give. Most people struggle with weight problem sometime in their lives.

      Thank you! I too am balancing work (VA&Blogging) as well. The only exercise I’m doing while in this weight loss phase is 30 minutes of walking. I can carve that out in my busy days! I will be posting more each week

    Glad to hear that you are having success on your journey. I hear you about making changes, but not changing your lifestyle. I think I am going to have to change up my lifestyle soon.. I definitely need to take eating healthy seriously.

    I wish you luck with this new program! I plan on following the progress and hopefully it helps me kick my butt into gear. I’m currently working full time, blogging full time for side hustle plus I’m a single mom – so I’m always so exhausted. Maybe watching someone else’s progress will motivate me!

    I’m so excited to be following your journey. I have struggled with weight – and even when I do try the healthier eating and the extra exercise, I feel more fatigued and The scale never seems to change. It gets frustrating and I fall off track.
