My Story | Getting Healthy During a Pandemic

Part 8: Setback

By Christen Reiner, Macaroni Kid Lakewood-Littleton & Macaroni Kid Denver Editor and Publisher April 3, 2021

Setbacks are never easy.

And I had my first real one since starting the OPTAVIA program. I had been suffering from debilitating headaches for several weeks, and my doctor requested that I try an elimination diet to identify the culprit. Unfortunately, that meant that I had to take a break from the program.

I'm not gonna lie. It made me sad. I had stuck with the program and lost over 10 pounds, and I was on my way to losing even more. The thought of losing momentum was disheartening.

But, you know what made me feel better?

  • I knew that this setback was only temporary. The fact that I was sad about having to pause the program let me know that I would be eager to jump back in.
  • My coaching team was nothing but encouraging to me when I let them know of my situation. Their first response was "How can we help?".
  • I have been back on the program for a few days and I already feel energized.
  • My headaches are pretty much gone. I have high hopes that we will find the culprit and I will be able to avoid that pain moving forward.

So, guess what. I'm not going to let a little setback get me down. I am glad to be back on track and I am excited to see where this journey takes me. And for right now, I'm going to enjoy the ride.
