Up? :( Day 10 VLCD 125.6 (+ .3, total release 7.7 pounds)

Darnit! Day 10 and only 1 pound under my load weight, and a GAIN. It looks like my rounds closer to my total goal weight are up and down rounds, however at least I've gotten some nice solid drops. If I'm not significantly down by tomorrow, I'm doing my first ever apple day.

So yesterday I was on facebook and noticed an HCG group I belong to that sells HHCG was hiring coaches in Utah. I sent them a note with a before and after picture and received a very positive response, only they want a 4 year non-compete agreement. What is up with that? They called it standard which I thought was odd since the diet hasn't been popular that long in recent years. That aside, I explained that I turned down a similar position for that very reason, and had it not been hourly but salary and a true career move, I may have entertained the thought of signing it and joining the team, that and I don't know what my future holds or how long I'll be in Utah. I don't want my hands bound. That said, I'm now investigating starting my own coaching services. Something I can do online and from anywhere. I have a friend who is a life coach and am going to ask her about her experiences with starting that company. I want to make sure I don't ever cross the line in giving medical advice. I'm currently brainstorming the logistics and have some ideas, even some that would be compatible with referring people to the company that had hired me for various supplies, etc. Anyway, just thinking about this now. It may go nowhere, but I think it's worth some consideration. I've secured a website and designed the logo, just in cases. :)

I'm hungry but want to wait for the new dishwasher installer to leave before I fix myself a pound of cucumbers! :)

Hope you're well!!

It seems most businesses have a non-compete agreement. DD#2 had to sign one when hired at a tanning salon.

I can understand a non-compete. A 3-4 year non-compete, not so much. 6 months to a year would seem far more reasonable! Am I up in the night?

Your weight bump today was probably hormonal. Keep drinking lots of water, and you'll see a drop in the next couple of days. Don't get discouraged!

Because I know from personal experience, anyone out there would be lucky to have you as a coach!! If you need personal testimonies, I would be happy to write one for you for your website. What a wonderful idea!

love you very much-

Oh, LD THANK YOU!! I would LOVE a testimonial! Keep your eyes open on your email... THANKS!

Kathryn said...

I agree with LD. You would make an amazing coach. You have so much positive energy and share it willingly with empathy. It's an excellent idea that I hope you pursue.
