Dreading the nutritionist visit

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Tomorrow I am going to see my nutritionist. She is so sweet. She has given me a easy to follow meal plan. Have I followed it this summer? Not so much. I am going to be so embarrassed to step on the scale tomorrow....

But, I know that I have to own up to it. By doing that I can move on and in the right direction. I know WHAT I have to do. I know HOW to do it. It's the actually "doing it" part" that trips me up.

New school year, new me. I said I was done with the up and down nonsense and I am. I just need someone to hold me accountable. Anyone interested in checking in with me on a daily basis?

I think I am going to make weekly appointments instead of monthly appointments just through this month. Hopefully, by the end of September I will be more in control.

  Thanks! I started seeing the nutritionist because I have a mild case of celiac and sjogren's, so she helps me with the gluten free aspect. But, she has also put me on a 1300-1400 calorie a day food plan. Breakfast is either egg whites and veggies, fat free greek yogurt with KIND clusters (1/4c) and berries, or a protein shake with almond milk, flax seeds, and berries.
Lunch is salad with 4 oz of lean protein or a extra lean turkey burger or chicken burger and veggies and a snack bag of chips
dinner is 4-5 oz of lean protein, veggies, sweet potato or 1/2 c quinoa.
Snacks are fruit, KIND bars, lite protein shakes, a serving of nuts, or a light ice cream bar.
So as you can see it's easy to follow, I just got lazy. But, I'm ready to face the music!

    Oh, I feel your pain. I know how to do so much, it's the "doing it" part that I'm weak at emoticon
I'm sure the nutritionist has seen many more before you that haven't followed instructions, just as doctors have. The point is that you are short-changing yourself for not doing it without a good reason.
I'm famous for pushing the reset button on my own food plan. I think that as long as I keep trying it is better than giving up.
I'm willing to check in regularly with you. I need an accountability partner too!

    I'd love to hear more about how a nutritionist helps. I've never been to one.
You sound pretty normal to me emoticon
I think we all let go a little this summer... emoticon

    I've have always thought about getting a nutritionist and have been curious about what kind of plan they would devise. If you felt comfortable sharing it, I would be interested in knowing about it. And I would love to be a friend & help keep you accountable, if you so desire.

Don't fret too much about your weigh in. Like you said . . . just own it & move on-- YOU CAN DO THIS!
