And yet one thing really bothers me.
This past year, 25 lbs decided to join me uninvited. I hit 200 lbs this year. I have had my thyroid checked. All is good. Tried supplements that my chiropractor gave me. I lost 15 lbs with them. This past week, I gained back 5. Mind you, I don't overeat. My breakfast is usually a cup of coffee, two eggs and fruit. Often for lunch I'll have a smoothie (fruit, flax oil, and a supplement) and something like black beans with salsa. For dinner one night, my heavy meal night this week), I had Namaste pancakes, an egg, and a banana. Last night, I had a tuna sandwich. Every day I drink between 1/2-1 gallon of water.
So where is this extra weight coming from? And does it make a difference in people's opinion of credibility of a nutritionist?
What do you all think? If you wanted or needed a nutritionist to assist you, would you take the person less seriously if he/she was overweight? Or am I being overly worried? It is something I really would like some input on as I am working hard at being at my optimum health by the time I complete schooling. And well, if I can't lose weight and it will be problematic in that field, I may have to rethink my long term goal.
