I am growing!!!!!!!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Yes I am growing!! No not physically outwardly!! But growing as a person , emotionally , mentally ,, just knowing what it is that makes me happy and knowing what it is I need!!!!

Ok I posted I was considering this free weight managment clinic my work offered, okay I went to two weigh ins, first weigh in yayy lost 2.2 ,, talked with a substitute dietician , very sweet , supportive made me going away feeling good and happy,

Ok this week, I was up a little we are talking by .8 not even a pound and considering I had a great loss last week I was thinking okay not terrible , well , I met the actual dietician that does the "support" for clients, I walked away from there feeling sad and terrible, why ? I will tell you

She was very thin, never had weight problem ever , okay , but it was what she said to me, she said " OKay you didnt lose any weight this week, you gained weight" thats all she said , then she wanted me to go on a strict diet on a way low calorie count that I know a person my size is too low, even Weight Watchers would say that would be to low and would set me up for not a good thing ,

I came away from there and knew I had to immdieatly know what made me happy and that was my family here at Spark People and my WEight WAtcher family , because people know what its like to go through this journey , the leaders know what its li ke ,people on maintenance are going through challenges of living it as a everyday lifestyle, and I weighed myself this morning Im down 1.6 , so here it is,, I am making me happy , I still have my health coach and he is the one to have me make sure to really see the pros and cons on things and do what truly makes me feel happy !! I love you Spark family!!

    That's just a bit sad that the "real" dietitian was so much less capable of listening and paying attention to details. A pity you can't request the "substitute" on a regular basis, but as you recognize - hooray for having support networks that DO understand.
