Self Monitoring: GMST
This is the most basic level of the GMST. This section is designed for people who are very self-disciplined or don’t feel the need to have someone monitoring their progress on the Tracker. The information that follows will assist you in setting up your Tracker and also making its use as productive as possible. Please feel free to contact us or check the forums if you have any questions. If you feel you could get better results with a small amount of oversight, you can just ask a friend or relative to monitor your page. Should you decide you would like one of our certified consultants to monitor you please let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange that for you.
