The eighth followup class

I’ve another followup class coming up tommorow and I’m coming up to the end of my year on the course. Saturday was the anniversary of my making the decision to do something with my life and sign up for this course.
For those on the course at the moment the course doesn’t finish after the 12 week classroom sessions. You should be looking to do this for the rest of your natural born.

If you’re not getting results have a good look in the mirror and try and take control of your life. Out of 25 that started the class I’m the only one left that regulary attends followups, these figures really shock me. This probably goes a long way to explain why I get so little feedback from other Lifestyle and Weight Management Course  participants.

I’m still of the opinion that women drift back to Slimming World and Weight Watchers, men generally don’t do either but only see their doctor when they think they are terminally ill. Which brings me back to the very reason you are on this course in the first place. You are in bad shape and need do something about it.

Nine of us turned up the followup class and the major theme of this class was exercise and food labelling (GDA, Traffic lights and the standard labels) Gordon from the class that I attended was there so that makes two of us that are going the full term. There was discussion from the September class about numbers coming back. They think they are good, I think they are pretty poor. The course runs for 12 months, half the class will have dropped out by week 12 and of the remainder most will have dropped out by the third followup class.
Once you have missed a followup it will be very hard to get back on track. Depending on how you  look at it the course may be judged as succesfull, if you take the figures at the end of the 12 months it might be judged less so. I intended to do the full 12 months, its been an outstanding success for me. Way way beyond what I thought could be acheived.

See you next month Andy, I passed the message on to Ron.
