It turns out that accountability makes everyone work harder, including me.
This week there will be a few extra emails leading up to March 22, then delivery will go back to a normal schedule.
First, let me back up a bit. The program I built is 9+ weeks long and covers a diverse array of subjects because these are the things that must be tackled to find lasting success.
Weight is a thorny issue (as you well know).
As such, you need a step-by-step process to take in the material (the course) and plenty of support (the community forum and group coaching) to make the lessons durable.
I saw this first-hand as my members naturally formed a cohort.
Starting and ending together adds real benefits.
  • People got to know each other
  • We were all covering the same material together which made group coaching much more effective
  • It built-in accountability to do the work
  • I have to bring my A-game (accountability is a loop)
  • Participants felt more comfortable sharing and being vulnerable as time went on (that’s where the magic happened)
Yes, the program is work.
I say that with pride. A lifelong, persistent issue that causes a lot of pain shouldn’t be expected to be cheap or easy to solve.
However, work doesn’t mean drudgery.
I’ve done my best to make it a joyful, meaningful, and durable process. And, that’s why a cohort is an important tool in and of itself.
