Christie Clinic Transformations realizes that if at first you don’t succeed, pick yourself back up and try again. We hope that you get to your weight-loss goal and maintain it, but we also know sometimes it takes a second or third try at something. Change is hard and long-lasting change is harder. We welcome you back if you’ve done the program before. If it has been longer than 6 months since you’ve seen us, you will just need to fill out a new health profile. The re-approval process will then begin, and we’ll contact you to get scheduled with a coach. Tips for Returning Transformations Members 1.
