          Hi there! So the program recommends 30 minutes of light exercise 3 times a week when on the normal Reduce/Reboot plan. If someone wants to work out more strenuously or lift heavier weights, the program can be tailored to that. I personally stuck with walking 2-3 times a week!

            Oh wonderful! I think Profile is the perfect plan, no matter the age. It sure does get harder to lose weight the older I get, but Profile has been such a wonderful way to stay on track! Please keep me posted on your progress!

    Congratulations Tracy,on your new healthy lifestyle changes!I am 50 years old and have been on profile with my husband for almost 6 months now. I have Hypothyroidism and going through menopause so that’s added to my struggles. But I have lost 43 lbs since March 2-2919 my husband has lost 95 lbs!

    What I wish I understood better is why they don’t allow hardly any fat it seems when there is so much information out there (good info) that suggests good fats are fine. I’m on day 1 and glad I’m doing this but it is already hard!!

      In talking with the owners of my local Profile, it has been their focus to remove some of the artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) from almost all of their products. The truth is, the diet is meant to work towards all grocery food, such as proteins and veggies. So in that case, you are eating whole foods with no additives. The rest is meant to be temporary. And the diet does allow some of the good fats, too! Hope you are doing well with your progress! I still love this plan!

      Thank you so much, Kim! That is so kind of you! I am glad you were able to find me! So as far as the code, some locations are still honoring it and some are not. I know my Omaha locations do. So if you do not have a location near you, then I would suggest joining remotely through the Omaha stores. I do know they are doing Black Friday specials too, so those might work, as well! Let me know if you end up joining! I would love to stay connected with you!

          Hi, Sharon! Thanks so much for reaching out. I know the cost can be daunting, but I can honestly say that I saved money overall because I was being more intentional with my grocery buying, less eating out, etc. And hitting that goal weight was soooooo worth it! I would be happy to share recipes! I just made “spaghetti and meatballs” with spaghetti squash, ground chicken that was out of this world! I need to do a blog post on that!

    This is an excellent story to read and be encouraged about Tracy, thanks so much for sharing. Will this program work for someone on a plant based diet? It’s my goal to be fully plant based in 2020. I’m currently at 75%, but I don’t eat meat at all and my dairy comes from junk food.

    I want to get healthy in 2020 and feel better for my upcoming wedding. Have been researching diet plans for weeks as I want to get started January 2. Off from work today and fiancé says “let’s go to Red Robbin for lunch.” UGH, but off we went. As we were walking in I noticed a storefront across the parking lot that I was not familiar with. I had never heard of Profile by Sanford so looked it up and got a little excited when I started reading about it. Maybe a little divine intervention?

    Wanted to read some reviews separate from what Profile site had and landed here on your blog. Congratulations on your success, you look great! I am 99% sure that I will be pulling the trigger and setting up the initial consultation. Thanks for all the information and if I proceed with check out your page for recipes.

      Divine intervention, indeed! And it is hard when your significant other wants to do all the lunch things. I totally get it! My hubby and I did it together, but it is a tad harder when they want to go out to eat. Eating out is our love language, so I completely understand! After a holiday season of indulging, I am back on the wagon today. That is the beauty of the plan. No matter how many times you fall off the wagon, you just get right back on. I would love to hear about your progress! And if you feel so inclined, you can use my code TRACY50 to get $100 off. Hopefully, your location will honor that code. You can always put my name down as a referral, too. But most importantly, welcome to Profile. Feel free to email me anytime at tracy@thefashionsessions.com to ask me any questions at all. I am always happy to help. I can add you to the Profile Facebook group, too!

    I am struggling on Profile and found your site. I am now questioning why I am not on the right road regarding my attitude and that is very much appreciated. Your comment on focusing on what you have in your plan more than what you can’t have is stellar and on point. I never looked at it that way and just thought, “oh poor me I’m always going to be fat!” When in fact, I should have been saying to me, “How wonderful are you because you know the importance of a healthier you; so grab all your favorite veggies and keep on keeping on!” Thank you.

    HI-
    Thank you for sharing your story. You look fabulous and so happy!

    I started Profile October 2019 and I have lost 50 lbs as of today. I feel fabulous. Glucose down 17 points and cholesterol down 50. I was starting to feel sick and get migraines again and I knew that I needed to make a change and embrace a growth mindset. I absolutely love my Profile coach and the community that the store has for all! Keep working hard and stay positive. A friend shared with me- Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

    I started with Profile by Sanford on February 20th and as of today, I’ve lost 67 pounds – so absolutely: it works. And I’ve not cheated once which for me is a miracle along the lines of the loaves and fishes. Now, I’ve “deviated” a few times, but I always calculated the calories and kept it within my allotment. If I have a glass of wine with dinner, it’s because I didn’t have my usual snack. On the one occasion I had FIVE glasses of wine with dinner it’s because I skipped both snacks AND lunch. Not recommended, but doable if you have to.
    One thing folks do need to know is that Profile’s price is very location-dependent. Here in the Metro Nashville area, it’s gone from $300 a year ($150 with a doctor’s referral) to an astounding $1400 a year, referral or not. To be honest, it’s worth $300 for a year… probably worth $500. But in my opinion, $1400 is insane.

      Congrats on that amazing success! I bet you feel like a new person! So happy for ya!

      I am with you on the pricing. I have seen some wild variations. I am lucky that my local location is very reasonable. They want people to join and not be run off by the cost! Luckily, the program can be done remotely. So if anyone is having issues with their local Profile being a little steep for them, they can join through my location for the remote option. Anyone can use the code TRACY for $100 off, too.

      Hi, Tasha! So each location has their own pricing. But I have heard that some places have a fairly high entry fee. So $300 to join plus the cost of food is about correct. And it is honestly well worth it! You get a discount on the food and weekly coaching. I spent less overall on food by not eating out and being more selective with my grocery shopping. If you are interested, my code gets you $100 off (normal pricing is $399). Also, most sites are doing remote coaching (which I have learned to love!), so if you want a location that offers a competitive price, you can totally join here with me in Omaha! My coaches are AMAZING!

    I’m on Day 3–so far so good. Hoping to lose 25 pounds. At 57, in- or post-menopause, and home alone due to Covid situation, I may have to adjust my expectations. But maybe not. I list 30 pounds on Ideal Protein 10 years ago, but I like this plan and the products much better.

    Where can I check out your recipes?

    8:00 a.m. I wake up after sleeping about 11 hours! I feel refreshed and ready to start my day. I step on the scale and I am up .4 pounds, at 144.6, which is not as bad as I expected. It’s a new week so I just have to stick to the plan. It just goes to show how much alcohol can affect dieting. I just keep thinking if I didn’t drink the last two days, I would probably be down one more pound. But, I still lost one pound this week. I have my first protein shake. 10:00 a.m. I have a wellness meeting with my coach through the Profile program. I learned some new things to change in my eating plan. She also changed up my plan to include more calories to see if this will help me lose more weight as I continue to work out. They don’t really recommend working out as hard as I do while in the first phase of this program, but I am not going to give up exercising because it’ll be hard to start back up again after this first phase is over. Now instead of having a second shake mid-morning, I will have a 15-gram protein bar instead. I am looking forward to this and I hope it helps.

    What were some of your favorites in Reduce? My husband and I are Profile folks and I’m looking for some great meal ideas. My personal fav is riced cauliflour with diced tomatoes and chili seasoning. (It’s better the second day). It’s like Spanish Rice.
