I blame you. This is your fault! Maybe that’s not what they exactly say, but it’s pretty much how we take it. In our line of work, this is what it comes down to: the number on the scale. Before stepping on the scale, clients know what the outcome is going to be and the mood is already set. Chances are, it’s not good if clients are acting like this. Anger, disgust, depressed, all of these emotions come out when we measure people. I know how the next 5-10 mins is going to go down, but I still have to help people realize what they are doing before it gets any worse.
“But I’ve been exercising. Why am I gaining weight?” Well hold on there. Didn’t you just go on vacation and celebrate your birthday? Or, go to a company dinner party and have like 5-6 drinks? Oh, that’s right….that doesn’t contribute to your weight gain. Can you see me shaking my head? It’s baffling to think that this doesn’t compromise your results.
For us, the scary part is the unknown. We don’t know what our clients are eating and we have to take their word for it. I would be lying to you if I said that I am not skeptical when people say they have been eating clean. If they were, then the scale would reflect that, right? Did you really count the amount of calories each meal you ate, sodium, fat, sugar, carbohydrate content? That’s a lot to be aware of. What are you doing when you go out? There’s just no way I can control what people eat and I can only reiterate to clients to be disciplined. So before you start pointing fingers, really look in the mirror and take ownership of your actions. Don’t play the blame game, no one else is feeding you.
