The Clintwood Healthy U challenge was being offered again in our area and I wasnít sure if I really wanted to sign up. This challenge was a little different because they offered individual and team signups with various levels to have BIA (Bioelectrical Impedence Analysis) and or FLT ( First Line Therapy) programs included in the challenge.
I decided to go for a modified version of the FLT which includes the BIA tests. The BIA measures impulses going through your body and measure lean body mass verses body fat. Today was my first appointment and included the BIA test with an appointment with the nutritional consultant after the test to go over the results and come up with a plan. I am hoping the changes she is suggesting will increase my weight loss. I have felt like I needed a change and this might be just the thing my body needs.
They are not recommending anything out of this world, just more calories than I currently am getting. I think this may be what I need, but more calories make me think I will gain weight Ė it is that old way of thinking trying to take over. She said not to worry that she does this everyday. I am going to give it a try and see what happens. It isnít like she is asking me to eat junk food or anything. Healthy food, just a little more of it!
