In my last blog entry, I talked about my insurance company not paying for anything obesity related (diagnosis or treatment-wise) and me not being able to afford one-on-one counseling with a nutritionist on my own.
So I found a nutrition class at a nearby wellness center that is $15 per week. Yesterday was the first class and I am so EXCITED about it! The nutritionist leading the group is so down to earth. I was scared going in about her or others in there being judgmental or condemning towards me. Yet everyone is so supportive and encouraging. There were veterans of the program as well as two other newbies like me. This class is everything I'm looking for. Support, accountability, nutrition info, exercise ideas, etc. We have to keep a food and exercise journal each week and my SparkPeople trackers will be my journal for the class. I am so happy to have found this class! With the support there and with SparkPeople, I know I can do this!
