It’s a pound down from last week, and overall about a pound and a half down since we got back from Wildwood, so I’ll take it!
Last night was my first chat with my nutritional consultant, Bobby. He owns a company called HealthySelf Nutrition in Boston, and is a good friend of my cousin’s. That was enough to get me interested. Last night’s conversation was about an hour, and I really feel like it was filled with good stuff. This time around, it was mostly me talking, Bobby’s questionnaire was very thorough – he didn’t only focus on “what do you eat? how much do you eat?” Instead, he added in questions like, “How well are you sleeping?” and, “Are you happy at your job?” I was really impressed by that, because I honestly believe that becoming healthy with one’s eating isn’t going to do a damn thing until one is healthy all over.
I won’t go too deep into Bobby’s suggestions, because I don’t want to give away his secrets … you’ll have to contact him yourself for that information. I will say that he’s easing me in to a change. Last night’s conversation was just asking me to make a couple of small changes between now and our next chat (on 9/11), changes that I think are very feasible.
So, today was my last Friday Morning Bagel … at least for a while. I won’t say I’ll never have them (mainly because I have a freezer full of bagels), I will probably still allow myself to have one once a month as a treat. There’s just something wonderful about a piece of dough that weighs as much as a brick. Still, if I’m going to get serious about a nutritional consultant, I should act it. Plus, I happen to know in my heart that no one needs a bagel every week. So, here we go!
