Doesn't that sound serious?
The company The Brain works for offers this free health screening and counseling through the Mayo Clinic. I signed up for it and everything, so you'd think at some point I would stop PANICKING when I see it on the caller id. But no, every time I see the caller, I assume they're calling to tell me I have cancer. Which I don't. (THAT I KNOW OF!)
They are usually calling for their pre-scheduled counseling appointment.
I have yet to determine whether the service is of any value. They gave me 6 free phone counseling months to help me drop that stupid 20 pounds. (Which is actually down to 15 pounds today - -thankyouverymuch.) The counselor on my case would call monthly and ask me the very same questions that I already ask myself every time I get on the scale.
Have you been exercising more?
Have you been eating less?
What plans do you have to modify your behavior?
Ummmm, excuse me, but isn't this THE MAYO CLINIC? Are you telling me that the world medical authority has the same weight loss theories as the 1997 Allure Magazine I found at the dentist's office the other day?
Because there is something really wrong with that.
