I have been an RD for 17 years (wow.. I'm getting old - ha ha ha)
What I have learned is that knowing something and doing it are two entirely different things. I'm overweight. I'm not the only one. I'm doing something about it. One my favorite sayings is "regret is a waste of time, when you know better, do better" (paraphrased from Maya Angelou).
As RDs, we know the guidelines, rules etc, but the trick is finding out how to apply the guidelines to us as individuals. Our successes and even our failures can help others.
I applaud everyone for making an effort to be better examples and I am very glad for this forum.
