oh man I did that…‘weight loss paid program’ and to me, just like you wrote, I did fantastic
lost my 70lbs fast…they ‘coached’ me thru tiers…(it was called LA Weight Loss’ and sold the products too like your place) but in the end the money part got rough…when I hit ‘maintenance’ the cost did not go down alot and I said to myself—I can do this? NOPE I COULD NOT cause it was that weekly weigh in, that weekly chat with nice people to help you ‘see the light’ or whatever----and to ‘just be active and supported’ to hold plan that I lost. Maintenance and reasons why I never learned real nutrition or ‘about food’ cause I was just on a ‘controlled menu’ and in the end that wasn’t gonna work long term LOL and got cocky and gained back 60 of that 70 pretty darn fast and I said to me…do it again? Nope cause when I looked back I was friggin’ starving thru the whole darn program literally…only thing that made it sustainable was ‘weighing in’ at the office and ‘wanting to hit that goal and hold’ cause ‘WOW I did it and could tell someone I did it’ but in the end…that part of the program was my downfall cause once you walk away…you haven’t learned ‘real squat’ about real nutrition and being ‘so hungry’ will never ever be a sustainable maintenance plan.
but I SO enjoyed reading your path thru that cause darn I did it too with success til the darn failure hit UGH
