Ok, I have always been all about making my weight loss experience “free from diet plans, pills, classes, or surgery.“ That’s why I took advantage of the free health coaching provided by my health insurance company. The distinction? Free.
Not that I would go for a FREE plans, FREE pills, FREE classes, or FREE surgery. No, I’ve got to maintain that line. This is a solo venture. I mean, I gained the weight on my own- I’ll lose on my own.
And that’s exactly the attitude of my free health coach.
I’m only three into my free 12 session benefit, but so far I’ve been told that everything we do during my 20-minute consultation has to come from me. I have to provide: answers to questions regarding my current health, the affirmation/excuse in regard to completing goals I set in previous sessions, the topic for the current session, ways to address the topic, a goal to achive before the next session, and the date and time of the next session. That’s right, its still all me.
What does the Coach do? Sympathize and reflect. That’s it. I guess we’ll see if that’s enough.
