Scam alert

Don’t use Noom. Don’t go to their website and don’t download their app. I have never encountered a more blatantly money-hungry service in my life, and this thing went from “this might be useful to me” to “this is the 30th time you’ve offered me something in return for additional money, I’ve said no, and you’ve instantly discounted it and asked again five seconds later, and you still haven’t shown me this personalized plan you’re supposedly crafting” in no time flat. There’s already one unauthorized charge on my card and they were doing their damnedest to railroad me into another when I backed out of the whole thing and demanded a refund. I’ll call the bank tomorrow to contest all of the charges.

In other news, my back hurts, I was in a training all day (and will be for the next two as well) and I am not in the mood for this.

  1. Oh, yes, I could tell this program was a problem pretty early on. I have a friend who’s found it useful but I’m seeking a professional multi-allied health service for my weight loss care. No fad diets or anything: I’m seeing this hospital-aligned Australian company that has a medical foundation. Dietician, doctor, psychologist, exercise and sports scientist guy, and all the things. Costing me a fortune to teach me to eat less but it’s actually worth it. I think.
