So I was on this determined road in January to lose weight, get fit and had this glorious notion that if I walked three times a week and stopped ordering hoagies and large unhealthy breakfasts that I would see changes. I did for about two months and lost 7 pounds and then, wham! I gained it all back and had no idea why. I would read all kinds of articles, try different strategies and nothing seemed to work. I felt like the more I read, the more that my health, eating, excersising seemed like a science I couldn't figure out. My doctor suggested seeing a nutrionist. I had my first meeting with her over a week ago and as much as I hated the idea of keeping a food diary (again, counting calories was a science I kept getting frustrated with) I have been doing so since my appointment. It truely is an eye opener and I have found myself trying to pick the better options that are best for me. I am down 2 pounds since my first meeting and I see her again next month. It is not easy and nothing is easy if you are looking for positive results. I struggle every day but I don't give up.
