You Were Right

In Diet and Weight, Food and Health, Mindful Eating on May 24, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Like most men, I love hearing those words.  Even if this didn’t come from Dr. Mary, it still felt good.  Particularly since I heard it from a very smart nurse who is also the nutritional gatekeeper for the rest of her family.

Kate is always a delight to be around, funny and open.  Like many of us, she has also struggled with food and weight for a while now.  I know she has lots of ‘book knowledge’ about health and diet and nutrition but our conversations over the past few years have shown me how little of that knowledge she applied to herself.

Today she told me that she had given her best friend and her husband copies of my book but never read it herself until very recently.  As expected, she knew everything she read – it isn’t rocket science.  The “You were right” part came as she quoted her favorite part of the book.  “Every calorie counts – you were right!”

And just like that, she sees her food and choices differently.  The weight has started to come off and even better, she knows why it came off and that it can continue.  The look in her eyes was pretty awesome, let me tell you.  A person that finally feels empowered for her health and wellness and weight gets a look of fierceness about them.   After years of struggling and losing, she knows she can win!

Go Kate!!
