Off to See the Nutritionist . . .

It’s time to get serious.  It’s time to visit a registered dietician.  Recently, I wrote a post about renewing my mind in terms of eating healthy foods.  Since I started my new journey of good health and fitness, I have been monitoring my caloric intake and exercising four times per week.  I have been making progress.  However, I have not been making the kind of progress that I planned.  One of my fitness goals was to lose 1.5 pounds per week.  According to my calculations, at this point on my journey, I should have lost 18 pounds.  It has been 12 weeks since my journey began.  At my weigh in on Tuesday, I learned that I have lost a total of 11.2 pounds.

I am not devastated by my progress.  I thank God for the weight loss that I have achieved.  I just realize that I need to change my eating habits more drastically than I have already done.  I realize that I need professional help for this aspect of the journey.  My husband and I are going to visit a registered dietician to assist us with our food selection and preparation.  I thank God that we have a health insurance plan that will allow us to take advantage of the services of a registered dietician.  I am excited about all the new information that I anticipate learning.  I am ready for my mind to be transformed nutritionally!  Of course, I will share what I learn.  How much experience have you had with a nutritionist or registered dietician?  Please share your wisdom.  I will post links to nutrition websites in the left-hand column of this blog, so that we all may become nutritionally enlightened and empowered.  Stay encouraged.

    Your progress is great and most weight loss experts say expect a loss of 1-2 pounds per week for long term weight loss. At my previous gym, I went to a nutritionist which helped me immensely. Good luck with your registered dietician!

    Awesome post! As a physician, I’m always excited when I hear of people taking steps toward wellness and healthy living. Nutrition is a vital part of my approach to healthcare and so I actually work alongside a dietitian. You might like this healthy fiber-loaded recipe I came up with, I also have some resources about dietitians on my website!dietitian/c1omc.
    Oh! you can also “like” me on facebook, because I post healthy recipes every week

    Good luck on your weight loss journey!
