Can  an overweight  Nutrition and Wellness Counselor set a proper example for those who wish to reduce thier weight?


Here's why!

While I personally feel that a  Nutrition and Wellness  Counselor should not be morbidly obese, I do believe that an overweight Nutrition and Wellness Counselor who maintains a signifigant weight loss over a period of several years sets a great example of "stick-to-it-ive-ness" -and is therefore someone who is very capable of effectively counseling clients who weigh even less than than the overweight  Nutrition and Wellness Counselor, because the Nutrition and Wellness Counselor who has struggled with weight themselves is more able to  identify with the obstacles that any client of any weight faces while trying to lose or maintain thier weight, so I would encourage those who wish to lose weight to listen to people who have struggled with weight and are still fighting, rather than people who have recently dropped alot of weight really fast and have not yet proven that they can maintain that weight loss. I guess what I'm trying to say here is- when it comes to weight loss, look to the turtle, not the hare! Furthermore, I have always found it difficult to listen to the counsel of Weight Loss Counselors who have never been overweight, because they never "walked in my shoes."

Have I managed to achieve the weight of many aerobics instructors?

No, but I am closer to the proposed average weight for my height,  than I am to being  morbidly obese so I guess you could say I'm "in-between" those 2 categories,  and personally, I have  never really wanted  to be Hollywood-thin,   so while that may be the dream that OTHERS may have for me, it is not MY dream.

Here's some comic relief for ya!

I  recently read a magazine article which discouraged women from eating healthy foods like fresh apples, milk, oat meal, and other whole grains in order to avoid a horribly disfiguring  condition known as   "carb-face."

To that, I say that I am proud of my "carb-face" - mainly because it decreases the visiblity of wrinkles--ha ha!!  Personally, I have always  preferred to have a full-figured appearance- so... I eat my apples, drink my milk, eat my yogurt and spread my chicken salad on 2 slices of whole grain bread without thought or reservation, however,  if you come to me and ask for my help and guidance so that you can achieve thinness, that is your goal and your choice,  and I will respect that choice. I will never try to discourage any healthy weight goal that any of my clients may have, and  I am  qualified to help my clients reach whatever weight they desire because I have completed a Nutrition and Wellness course that was developed by an accredited school, so you can be confident in  my ability and  knowledge with reguards to  being able to help  you to  lose weight, gain weight, or to maintain your weight.

While there may be  "unwritten rules" - and..unfortunately..outright prejudices with reguards to the weight of Nutrition and Wellness Counselors- the official pre-requisites for someone who wants to take a  Nutrition and Wellness Counselor course are that they have  to be over the age of 18, be a highschool graduate, be able to speak English,  and  able to  perform basic mathematical calculations pertaining to the tasks of being a Nutrition and Wellness Counselor.  Nutrition counselors are not required by any school to be thin, or to meet any height/weight standard. You can be assured that I am able to do the basic math involved in calculating your nutritional needs since I have a college degree because to get that college degree I had to pass an advanced algebra & pre-calculus course. As for the requirement of being able to speak English... well...I'm Southern, so there may be times when that's a subject for debate-- ha ha!

All kidding aside, I want to let you know that  I will always take my clients' concerns and questions seriously, maintain the integrity of my profession,  and strive to help my clients to the very best of my ability.

The bottom line is,you can trust me to give you the best information I can possibly find in order to  help you improve your nutritional status,  and/or to achieve, or maintain your desired weight.

Remember that  no matter how many failures you have experienced in the past, now is the time to begin to work on your goals again, so instead of seeing your past failures with reguards to weight management as catastrophic and irreversable, I hope you will begin to see your past failures as learning experiences that will help you avoid the making the same mistakes later on down the road.

I have every confidence that if you WANT to work on your personal goals reguarding nutrition, that you CAN do it. All you have to do is be willing TRY...and remember..."The mightiest oak in the forest is just a little nut that held it's ground" - Ancient Chinese Proverb
