Working with a health coach offered Felice the knowledge, support, and accountability that she needed to be successful.
What brought you to Cōpare? Was there one particular event that finally brought you to the breaking point?
My husband told me about the program after hearing about it on WJFK. He actually told me several times because he truly wanted to help me. Initially, I wasn’t open to listening to his idea to check out Cōpare because I felt like I knew what I was doing. With that said, I was gaining and losing the same 15 pounds over and over for 3 years with another program and never getting close to my goal. One day I walked past a full length mirror and realized the program I was on wasn’t working for me. I couldn’t stand the way I looked anymore. I hopped in the car and drove over to the Woodbridge office. And the rest, as they say, was history! Down 25 pounds in 9 weeks! And yes, I did tell him he was right!
What were you most skeptical of when you first contacted Cōpare?
I was probably most skeptical of the cost however after discussing what was included i.e. much of my food for the day, weekly coaching/weigh ins and a health coach for life, I was able to see the value. And truly, how can you put a price on good health?
What was your mindset as you were going through the program?
I was in a nice rhythm and mentally, “I was all in”. I loved the structure that the program provided me.
What would you say to the people that supported you through your weight loss journey? What would you say to the doubters?
My husband was my biggest supporter. I tell him all the time how grateful I am that he encouraged me to not only sign up but support me throughout my journey. As far as the doubters, I would tell them to try it. It’s the best program on the market!
What’s the best piece of advice you’d give someone considering undertaking the Cōpare program?
Don’t wait! My only regret….that I didn’t start sooner!
What are the top 3 things that you can attribute to your success?
First, the structure. Knowing exactly what I needed to eat and when was so helpful for me. Second, the weekly weigh-ins and one-on-one coaching session was so valuable. And third, seeing the weight come off each week kept me motivated.
What role did your coach play in your success?
My coach played a significant role in my success and was helpful for so many reasons. She offered the knowledge, support, and accountability I needed to be successful. We connected and I really looked forward to the one on one meetings with her every week.
Do you feel equipped to face the invariable challenges you’ll face in maintaining at/near your ideal weight?
I do. I have learned so much about nutrition and how to fuel my body. I’m more active and healthier than ever thanks to Cōpare
What strategies did Cōpare help you manifest that you feel confident will help you to avoid “backsliding”?
I realize now when I do get off track, I have the tools and motivation to get back to a healthy place much quicker. I love the saying “just because you dented the car doesn’t mean you have to total it.” Learning to get back on track quickly has been a new skill that has helped me maintain my healthy weight.
Why would you recommend others choose the personalized nutrition based program that Cōpare offers?
The combination of the structure, one-on-one coaching and weekly weigh-ins make Cōpare a clear winner. But when you add the graduate program that includes a coach for life – they’re in a league of their own.
