So how can it possibly be that, even on a proven weight loss and lifestyle program like Code Red - which every day helps Rebels like you get astonishing results - a whopping 50% of people who do this program gain their weight back?
On "diets" that number's even higher...as high as 80%...but still...How can it possibly be?
In my 25 years in the weight loss industry, I've seen it all when it comes to why people gain their weight back...even on something that works as well as Code Red.
But there's one cause that stands above all the others combined.
It's one that's easy to overlook, and even easier to dismiss altogether.
And I've seen it cause even my most successful clients to gain their weight back.
I first learned of it in 2016, back when I was still working exclusively with 1:1 clients...
And every so often, one of my clients would suddenly drop off the face of the Earth.
Gone, just like that.
No texts, no emails, and I couldn't get them on the phone to save my life.
It gave me SO much anxiety, to the point I'd lie awake at night, my mind racing with horrifying "what-ifs."
What if something happened to her? What if she was in a car accident?
I even searched online obituaries trying to find out whether these MIA clients were dead.
I mean, why else would they disappear without a trace?
But finally, after this happened a few times, my eyes were opened to the stinging truth...
These clients were going out of their way to HIDE from me...because they'd fallen off the wagon, gained their weight back, and didn't want me to know.
I was crushed, to say the least.
But as I worked with more and more people, I noticed that same disturbing pattern of behavior in people who gained their weight back...
They disconnected and they hid, isolating themselves from everything that had worked to get and keep their weight off!
And that's how I learned that, when it comes to losing your weight and keeping it off, isolation is the enemy.
When you disconnect from your Code Red family, all those powerful old thoughts and habits (and the words of unsupportive people) are right there waiting, ready to claw their way back into your psyche and suck you right back onto another shameful, guilt-filled trip around the weight loss mountain.
I know that's a trip you're tired of taking.
And that's exactly why, since learning that isolation leads to gaining your weight back, I've been doing everything I can think of to inspire Rebels like you to to stay connected, so you can keep off that weight you're working so hard to lose.
I've got Facebook groups, coaching groups, challenges, live videos--all places you can surround yourself with a warm, supportive community of people on the same journey, who get you and what you're going through, and who are just as ready as you are to lose their weight and keep it off once and for all.
And yet, even with all those resources, and even with Code Red reaching tens of thousands of people who're losing 50, 100, even 200-plus pounds on the Code Red Lifestyle™, there are still Rebels who fall into the trap of disconnecting from their Rebel family, and go on to gain their weight back.
I think about it a lot, and I'm constantly asking myself..."Cristy, what more can you do to help your Rebels stay connected to Code Red, and get the support and motivation they may not be getting from the people around them?
"And what's something you've never done...something that'll give them that warm, supportive community they're craving, but also provide more education and inspiration...AND that's also fun?"
And the answer that came to me was Code Red LIVE!
Code Red LIVE is a mind-blowing, all-day live event, with speakers, exclusive swag, and best of all, HUNDREDS of your fellow Rebels who are ready to link arms with you and help you get off weight loss mountain once and for all.
