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.
