Weight Loss is Like a College Class
Thursday, August 06, 2015
Spark Coach (Coach Nicole) told me today that the commitment to weight loss “is similar to taking a college level class.”
That sort of made me want to cry. Clearly Coach Nicole was not the neurotic, overachiever I was in college. I was so mad (SO MAD) that I graduated Magna Cum Laude and not Summa Cum Laude (I graduated with a 3.7 and not a 3.9 – my grade in stupid statistics ruined everything).
So I’m supposed to put in the same level of effort that I did into my college classes??? The same blood, sweat, and tears? On top of my insanely busy job and generally trying to have a life and be a semi-well balanced person?! ARE YOU KIDDING?
I know that it was supposed to be motivating and give me a frame of reference of how hard I’m supposed to be working. But that sounds overwhelming and just generally awful.
I was trying to find a way to make this journey less stressful, not more! Grrrrrr
