Frustrated!!

When we first joined UWeight Loss, we paid our starter fee and a maintenance fee. This starter fee included our protein powder, vitamins, detox pills, pedometer, journals and hundreds of recipes. We go and weight in 3 times a week or as much as we can. We finished our detox week last night, but I’ve been calling it my crap free week at home (since I need to really kick my addiction to sugar) Anyways, we went to go weight in last night and to pick up our vitamins for this week and … there’s a hitch! We were told that the vitamins were included in the 350$ starter kit. Since that’s a great deal of money we made sure and asked them if it was included. WELL, we go there today and they tell us that no they were only free for the first week and we have to pay an additional $50 each a week for them!! That’s 100$ a week! . I was in such an outrage that I was almost crying in the room with the lady. I asked her if we had to take the vitamins and if we could do it without them and she said we have to take them to be apart of the program.

So the moral of the story, never join a weight loss place. EVER! There are not there to really help you, they just want your money! So since our Starter fee of 350$ each is non-refundable, we can only get 700$ back if we want to quit. Kyle might stay with the program since he is overweight, but I am not. I didn’t really want to join in the first place, I just really wanted to support him and his decision. He feels terrible of course since I’ve been crying all night. But I guess you learn from your mistakes and move on. We’re still going to follow most of the recipes and work out more to make up for the vitamins I guess? This is all so confusing to me. I hate it.

I really hate it.

    Hey the important thing to do is rebound. So now you aren’t going to be able to accomphlish what your goals with UWeight Loss. Ok, they suck, time to move on. Think of another way you can lose the weight.Many times in our lives we have set backs, but if you don’t learn to get over those humps, they just hold you back. Now its time to create a new plan to become the ultimate you and go out and execute it! It’s called behvaorial flexibility.

    Oh man! As if they did that! There is always that catch! As if you have to pay an extra $100 a week for vitamins that you probably don’t even need!

    Were you able to get that discount since you work for WRHA?

    Argh, what a horrible horrible place! That’s such a horrid experience. I’m so sorry – just remember though, in a couple of months you’ll be over this glitch. And you still have the recipes, etc.

    I’m so sorry this didn’t work out for you. You can still do it. You’ve done so good so far. The best vitamins you can get is naturally from food.

    U Weight Loss is like all weight loss centres – it’s all about selling… The “coaches” are just regular people hired to sell sell sell, they have no training or experience or expertise in health or nutrition. Just follow the recipes and you will still lose…I know I did the program. It based on a 40 protein, 30 good carb, 30 good fat ratio – 1100 calories a day plus 200 for a snack.
