A: It’s hard for me to put this into words, but I will try my best: I used to be so hung up on the number on the scale, it ruled my whole life. It either made me feel awful or awesome. When I started this journey, I set a goal weight of 140, and for a long time I held tightly onto that—I wasn’t going to be happy until I hit that number. But, especially over the last few months, I’ve grown to learn that the number doesn’t actually matter; what matters is that I feel great, am the healthiest I have been in over a decade, and can appreciate my body for exactly what it is and what it can do. This body can do things I never would have imagined I could do, and I’m amazed by that. And for me, a person whose entire self-worth was wrapped up in my weight and what my body looked like, this has been a HUGE accomplishment. I’m really proud of myself.
A: I went through a pretty long plateau period, and that was really hard for me to reconcile. I was doing everything right, but was not seeing the results I wanted on the scale. I really leaned on my nutritionist Emily to help get me through that; she worked with me on recipe ideas, the timing of my eating, and more. She helped me not give up when it would have been very easy to do so
A: There’s no reason to feel intimidated, especially because your OnPoint nutritionist will help you SO MUCH along the way. Emily has helped me learn what to eat, how to eat, when to eat, and how to navigate any situation that involves food and drink. I would not have gotten to this point without her!
