I am not going to pretend I met my weight, and consequently my BMI goals.
My screening was in February. I had it retested a few weeks ago. 38% lower.
While I am not proud of my lack of weight loss, I am very proud of how much my health has improved.
My nutritionist and I determined we don't need to continue to see each other, but I told her I owe her a lot, and I know I will keep what I learned going forward as I work on improving my body and my lifestyle.
Some of the biggies I learned:
1. Fiber is key for everything. Healthy digestion, weight loss (keeps you full longer), and lowering triglycerides and even bad cholesterol. My favorite sources of fiber have been high-fiber Trader Joe's bread and spinach.

Well, I needn't have been. My nutritionist declared them almost the perfect snack. Low calorie, has a serving of fruit and/or veggies, and all of the sugar comes naturally. If you see something high in sugar and it comes from fruit or something else naturally high in sugar, check the ingredients to make sure there's nothing added or processed.
So overall I feel like I have the tools, and now the key is using them correctly.
